I don't know if I should put it up yet.
I lost quite a few pounds this week because I cannot eat because of an infected tooth.
Don't have any appetite or the want to eat.
I make myself eat because Friday I was pretty low in energy.
The medication is me feel nauseous ,so that doesn't help much.
My jaw hurts and I can't open my mouth and the food I can put in-I can't chew if it's too hard or too big.
It takes me long too eat and then it's hurts for hours afterwards,so I don't feel like chewing anything.
I eat lots of yogurt and ice cream,but even that is starting to look pretty blah.(can't believe i'm saying that about ice cream!!!!)
Good chance i'm not fussy-soups go into the blender-if it tastes good it does not matter how it looks.
I had antibiotics on Monday but on Thursday I had to go to the emergency room because I was getting worst.
They put an IV in my arm and I had to go every 8 hours for antibiotics until Saturday.
Then they gave me oral antibiotics.
I have an appointment for a root canal on that tooth in a week but i don't know if i'll be well enough for them to do the procedure.
Being in pain makes me wonder how people that have chronic pain continue to live and function with any degree of dignity.
Being in that much pain knowing that it would not go away would drive me bonkers.
I don't make a very good patient-I hate being in pain and i'm a pretty big baby about it.
I'm just so grateful that I live in a time that offers antibiotics and pain medication.While in serious pain,I kept thinking of all the people through the ages who had tooth pain with nothing to stop it.
Anyhoo,gotta go for a nap!
Have a nice day!
