Hello! Today’s title sums up how I feel today. I feel like crap. I did call in, or should I say email in, sick today.
I am concerned about my niece. She had surgery today, and she is still in the hospital. I am hoping that she can go home soon and has a speedy recovery.
I am so wiped out today, that I am actually using voice to text to write this blog post on my phone. So I imagine that there will be a lot more mistakes than usual. I apologize. I just cannot sit at a computer right now.
I’m usually OK handling one health issue at a time. But when it’s a combination of things, it’s much more difficult for me to handle. And that’s what’s going on today. I actually woke up shaking today. Not good.
Anyway, enough about that. I am just going to tell you one quick thing about me for your entertainment: I use toothbrushes made for children to brush my teeth. Why? They fit in my mouth better!
How did this come about? Well, my mom bought me a kid’s toothbrush (a SpongeBob one, of course) as a gag gift at Christmas several years ago. Well, I used it and found I could clean my back teeth so much better! (I am currently using a Sesame Street toothbrush.)
I had my wisdom teeth taken out when I was 17. The removal left gaping holes behind my current back teeth. For the life of me, I could not get a regular toothbrush to brush behind those teeth. I found it nearly impossible to brush back there or clean back there at all. When I asked a dentist about it, he recommended that I popped my jaw out of joint in order to clean those teeth. Well, gee golly, that hurt, and my jaw only pops one way. But I couldn’t believe that’s what he recommended.
This led to a horrible cavity in one of those teeth. And that led to a yearslong battle with me and several different dentists before one finally took care of it without a root canal. But now, thanks to the smaller toothbrush, I can brush all of my teeth without any kind of problem anymore.
So there you go, that’s the story I can muster up today. I know it’s not that thrilling, but I really need to get some sleep. Until next time!
