Finally, my face looks like it normally does, no swelling or bruising or redness.
You may or may not have noticed that for the past couple of weeks, I’ve been MIA. Almost 2 weeks ago, I had my wisdom teeth removed, all four of them, and since then, I’ve been having a lot of trouble getting back into the rhythm of things.
I do not do well with change. I get it honest. My mom’s the same way. I have eaten nothing but mushy foods the past two weeks and I want nothing more than to crunch on something. I tried yesterday, but now my jaw hurts again. I’m glad they are gone and it was finally time for me to get them out. It was a now or never situation. I’d actually waited too long, but financially I was ready. Plus, they were painful and irritating, so I was happy to get them out once and for all. No more worrying about unnecessary decay or sores in my mouth from where the teeth rubbed my lips.
I hate having to clean my “sockets” at work, which I consider in public. Eew. It takes me about 10 minutes to thoroughly rinse the sockets, rinse with salt water, and occasionally brush my teeth throughout the day.
I know, I sound whiney, but not eating what I want and being in pain has really thrown me off and out of my routine. My digestion is totally off too. I’ve been having tons of acid reflux that just won’t go away no matter what I try.
This has really put me into a bad mood. I haven’t wanted to crochet or write on my blog for nearly two weeks. Absolutely no desire to do anything that I consider “fun.” Not to mention, it’s the end of the semester and I am super busy helping K study and wrap up some random tasks for the end of the semester. I have no spare time in the evenings and I’ve been sore up until about two days ago.
I know, whine, whine. At least I have my kitty cat to entertain me 🙂 Here he is watching the birds at the window.
