Let the Stress Creep Up

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

Looking for a house, getting the paperwork together, weeding out and packing up the apartment, trying to get my sleep regulated, etc. has officially brought my stress levels up to where it's affecting my body. My TMJ hasn't acted up in a few years. Saturday, my right side of my jaw just kind of locked up. It didn't pop like it usually will. My right side of my jaw has been hurting since.

I figured that I just need to make more of an effort to relax. Of course, when I mentioned it to the dentist, she wanted me to go to a specialist (who doesn't take any insurance). I am in the middle of buying a house - not a good time to be spending lots of money on me. So...I must see what I can do.

    My sister had that TMJ. Tough thing to overcome. Congrats on the house buying trips you have made. Hope it is going to be more suitable than the apartment. Try to relax the best you can and maintain that calmness. You deserve it.
