So I had a very interesting week last week. Monday night got a horrid toothache, tuesday had to cancel my therapy appt (which I have been trying to go to for over two weeks now) to go the dentist.. found out I need a root canal. Got a call while finishing up at the dentist and had to rush to my son's school and pick him up.. he had a very odd emotional breakdown at school. Not tantrum-y or anything.. he just got super quiet, stared off into space, and began having tears flow down his cheeks. Very strange. Interestingly the VERY NEXT DAY I got an email from a friend at another busstop saying that another little boy was kissing my son on the mouth on the bus over and over again. I then had to call the teacher and began emailing her and the school guidance counselor. The other child was talked to and my son got some one on one time with the counselor to "talk" about anything that was bothering him lately.
It bothers me that he's had so many emotional episodes lately and then I found out that this had happened. His daddy talked to him in depth and apparently it only happened that one time.. Ethan didn't tell him to stop and didn't realize he could or should. We are a very affectionate family and his dad and I both kiss him a zillion times a day. We are not together so we both try to show him as much as we can how much we love him. I never imagined I needed to talk to my 7 year old about something like this. I am racked with guilt and crying as I write this now. If my son gets made fun of at school or suffers any heartache or pain over him not knowing to tell ihm to stop I don't know what I am going to do. I feel like a horrible mom.
On the health/diet side I was supposed to get back on the wagon last monday with Michelle but haven't been all that great. I have been eating whatever I could because of the jaw/tooth pain and most of that hasn't been the healthiest or best foods. I definitely ate better than I had been a month ago but still not as well as I should have. It's very hard to eat super healthy foods that aren't hot, cold, hard, or crunchy. LOL.
Dentist gets called back tomorrow.. apparently they finally got my insurance worked out and will give me the estimate and I can schedule. I've been on antibiotics since tuesday and the pain is diminishing but my jaw aches constantly and I feel my TMJ acting up really bad. The muscles in my jaw on both sides are so spasmed that my mouth keeps clicking when I eat, talk, chew, anything. UGH.
Michelle!!!! Where have you been? Haven't heard from you. Let me know how your week went!!!
