Three weeks ago I went to the dentist with a toothache....lots of pressure with it. I was put on antibiotics. Checked in a week later and they changed antibiotics as that one was doing nothing. Stopped by last Thursday to talk about the antibiotics and the fact that the pain was only getting worse. The soonest they could get me in was today. The suspect tooth they thought was dead wasn't, and it was a different tooth altogether. It's out and when she pulled it I could feel the pressure leave. I saw the thing and glad it's gone. She was so relieved that her gut feelings about the other tooth turned out to be right. She said she just didn't think it was the one from the xray so they did different xrays this morning and then she tapped on a tooth.....peeled me off the ceiling and proceeded. It's over. The last two days have been miserable.
Okay....I'm done whining now and after a nice nap and two days of taking it easy as told to do, I'll be ready to get started on those November goals I set out. Easy Peasy!!!
The reason I'm telling you this is because I know from past experience that teeth have alot to do with diabetes and blood sugar levels. I hope I can get back to concentrating on this program. No matter what I was doing I was in pain. Think I went through 7 tubes of oragel and ambusol in the last three weeks.
Now you'd think that with a restricted diet I put myself on the last few days I would have gotten the scale to move downward.....guess again.....put never say never, right?
