yes, you are looking at my majorly inflamed tooth and gums. It is infected. And its a tooth that has already seen a root canal and a cap. Who knows why it is doing this. I talked to a friend who used to be a dental assistant and she said it may be a cracked root. Great. Its not all that sore, except when I push on it. As my dad would say "DON'T DO THAT THEN!!"
But I can't help it, it annoys me. TMI ALERT!!!! I tried to pop it, and it didn't work. Only made it hurt worse. Oh well. I did have Zack call his dentist friend who scheduled me for Monday, but was very concerned because it "sounds" so bad. So they said to go to
Urgent Care, hense the new jewelry.
I have never gotten one of these at UC. Only when I had my boys. I went Thursday night and they gave me antibiotics, vicodin and IB 800. I have only taken 1 dose of the IB 800. No Vicodin. I only took 2-3 doses after giving birth with a C section, I refuse! (after Jonathan's vag birth I took IB 800 a few times)
And to top it off I woke up sick yesterday. Ugh. Getting progressively sicker as the day went on. Zack too. Grayson is so far spared but unfortunatly that just means he has WAY more energy than both of us. We mainly just have a head cold, lots of running and congestion of the sinuses, which seems like it shouldn't happen together... but it is.
All of this has made for a rough day emotionally. To say that I am stressed out would be an understatement. I am really worried that we will lose our house now. I know Zack has been unemployed before, obviously, but somehow it was different. I just felt like there was always something right around the bend that would turn it around. I don't feel like that now. I just feel lost.
I feel like the whole world is crumbling down around me and I am powerless to stop it. It feels so hopeless. I am normally an optimistic person but today is just not my day. Maybe tomorrow I will wake up and not feel like the Universe is out to get us, but for today...
