Two things have precipitated this opinion. For the last week, my shoulder has been aching to the point I can't move it very well anymore. Moving paperwork at work actually makes me cringe. This past weekend, I actually asked my mom to give me a Cortisone shot (steroid injection designed to reduce inflammation when injected in joints, for those who aren't aware of what Cortisone is), which took care of a lot of it. And now I'm on glucosamine for my joints. Great.
The second thing that's just driving me crazy are my teeth. I have horrible teeth, I always have. I inherited my mother's soft enamel, and since I haven't had consistent dental coverage for years, I also haven't been able to get regular maintenance on my teeth. Which means it's not surprising I had two molars crack on me.
The entire right side of my face hurts off and on right now, thanks to the damage. I'm probably in for a lot of root canals, if they don't just yank them and put in implants. If I can afford them. While my husband and I are doing a lot better financially since he got a job as a caregiver, it's still going to take a long time to pay for this.
And the pain's getting worse. So, guess who gets to call the dental college in the morning to set up an appointment? =_= Joy and rapture.
