Man! Shitty assignments all around. Really sucks at work right now. My ass is dragging trails in the snow.
Plus the two teeth I did my root canals on last December have been hurting like a son-of-a-mother. I've been popping Motrin like crazy. I can't get an appointment at the dentist sooner than next month (perfectly coinciding with what I anticipate to be my moving time to my new job. Super!)
The last time this happened, I had a colossal infection in my gums and needed 3 weeks worth of antibiotics to clear up. I am really not looking forward to a repeat episode...
Not that it makes any sense - I thought when you did a root canal, the root is desensitized - permanently. How the hell can it possibly hurt there, I'll never know.
All I know is that even a sip of "below room temperature" water sends shooting streams of agony throughout the jaw and the right side of my face ... and this being winter, I can't even let cold air hit that side of my face. I've been warming everything up and tilting my face to the left and drinking/eating in small morsels at a time.
Bah! I can't eat. I can't drink. Hell, even breathing cold air through my mouth hurts.
Tooth aches and ear aches suck! Suck! Suck! :-(
I'm beat. I'm back tonight for another 12 then I'm conking out. I'm gonna turn my phone off this weekend and go on a real bender. I hurt and ache in places I didn't know existed.
