You are Psychic!
What's Your Magic Power?
Ich ben SEHR mude!
Finally had a friend help out last night and save me. Thank God. Once I was out of severe pain, well...you might not want to hear the gory details, but I'll share. I took a hot bath, soaked a cloth with extremely hot water, and held it against my chin, reheating it every few minutes to soften up the inside. Then...OWWWWWWWWW. I pushed HARD. There are two ways for this infection to escape -- through a small hole that was drilled in the back of a small tooth, or last time, the knot surfaced on my gum in the front (little round pocket...ugh). I didn't get results, and almost (no joke) passed out from the pain. After the hot compress, I rinsed my mouth with tons of peroxide. Nooo you don't want details, especially when it came frothing forth from BOTH exit wounds. Ughhhhh! After I rinsed and brushed painfully, I flossed in between the teeth. I felt a sudden rush of salt, heat, and fluid and new I'd managed to break it open. OMG. Three packets of gauze later, I had the bleeding (and um...other gunk) under control. I should've sued the dentist who screwed me up three years' ago, and I wouldn't have to deal with this. I'm still taking Ceflex until this is HEALED. And if I have to, I'll get one of those kits and plug that thing up myself. I hope I never have to go through this again. It really was horrible, and is stil hurting and swollen. The last time this happened, it took alomst two weeks to stop bleeding (or oozing...eww) once I started treatment. What truly antagonizes the whole thing are your sinuses. They run along your jaw line, so when your roots or gums get infected, your sinuses follow. ACK! I don't know which caused which -- the sinus infection causing the root trouble, or the root causing sinus trouble. But last night, I was totally miserable and running a fairly high fever. Got up around 3, rinsed with salt water, and it looks like swelling might be going down. Hard to tell.
Today's the perfect day for it; gray outside, not too hot nor humid. But I'm fearful that if I stir up too much dust, or use too many cleansers, again my sinuses will kick into full gear, causing more misery. Hm. At least the townhome is mildly presentable. I have lots of nesting to do (hanging up pictures, awards, paintings, prints, etc.).
I REALLY need to zip by the grocery store. Arghhh. That'll be SO MUCH FUN!! NOT! But if I can accomplish even half these things today, mentally I'll feel better. Got some furniture that I need to rearrange (K wants to swap bedframes, desks need moved...ughhh, not up for that). But right NOW, I need to take a nap while I still feel like it.
Thank you SO much...
Since I'm not sure how you guys feel abuot it (and most were anonymous), I'll go ahead and thank you HERE for helping out over the past week. As some know, I'm glad to help in return for your generosity. Just let me know what I can do to reciprocate for now. Things will definitely change in August; if I can JUST make it until then... But I still want the chance to do something for all who clicked and helped (and continue to). Please accept the offer; believe it or not, I'm pretty good at a lot of things.
GEEEEEEEzzzzzz. I have at least 15 large moving boxes full of books and no where to house them. Eeks! Anyone have any good ideas? I don't want to get rid of any. I also think I'm going to categorize/alphabetize all these videos and sell or auction them. I have the BEST collection ever (but no chick flicks or kung fu...solly). I won't part with all, but most. Again, for all you nesters out there, any suggestions are appreciated. I have literally hundreds of movies. It's time to get rid of them.
The elusive Spirograph
I still haven't found one. It's driving me crazy. It's not ilke the Spirograph is some collector's item...so WHYYY can't I find one for K?! I've promised since Christmas to get one. Ugh. And right now, I'm operating on maybe two hours' sleep. I feel wretched (but am out of severe pain, at least).
Okey doke; my eyes keep closing, begging me to sleep, and so I'll succumb. Scuse any typos or errors; I can't focus and won't go back to check on this. Surely it'll make me laugh at my own self when I read it lster *smirk.*
