Tuesday, May 1
I use my phone for my alarm every morning. I have it set to "Good Morning"....it's an irritating little song......almost condescending. When it went off this morning,I knew it was NOT going to be a good morning. I didn't feel any better than I had the past few mornings.
About six months? ago I had a tooth break.....only a few small pieces....but when you're talking about a tooth, it doesn't take much to cause a problem. I knew sooner or later it was going to cause trouble. Well. It did.
I should have gone to the dentist last Thursday. It was a LONG weekend waiting for some medicine. I went Monday, got some antibiotics and a pain killer. Doc gave me a pain killer they used a long time ago because I can't seem to tolerate the *new* kinds. It didn't work either. Just made me sick. The antibiotic isn't making me feel so great either. Abscess is such an ugly word........
I have been in bed, on the couch, then back to bed........and just shuffling around in pain. I've watched a lot of *Leave It To Beaver* shows...... I have been wishing the tooth could just be pulled, but I know it can't be with an infection. I'm not afraid of dentists and I'm not afraid to have a tooth pulled. I'm more afraid if I do NOT have it pulled......
I have been crocheting rugs. It is what I call a *mindless* craft. It takes no thought to cut strips, to tie them, or to wind them into a ball. It takes no thought to crochet either. I've made almost five rugs since I got sick. I am thankful for the diversion.
I will be glad when I can go outside and pull weeds. My gardens are screaming for attention. As you know, when you're sick, everything is hard. The sun is hotter. Sounds are louder. Nausea colors everything. I have not had a good 5 or 6 days. I think this is the first time for YEARS and YEARS that I've missed not buying groceries on the day I should have. I haven't cared too much what anybunny has been eating either. Sorry, but it's the truth.
I know it would be hard to live with some sort of chronic pain or illness. Just one week is enough for me. I'm done ALREADY! Pain is not pleasant. Being sick is no fun. From the looks of things, we should just expect it. One day it will all be over. But we're not there, yet.
