This week has been a struggle. On Monday my mouth began to hurt very bad. It feels like all of my teeth are going to fall out If I open my mouth and talk or eat. My jaw has been locking up on and off. Now imagine trying to “get rid” of stuff with a locked jaw. Now whatever you imagined multiply it by 5. Yep!!!! Yuck!!!!
Today makes day 3 of not being able to eat. When I can it comes back up or I have severe stomach cramps that make it hard to sit straight up. For my teeth I’ve been using extreme strength sensodyne. I brush with it and rub it on my gums. For my stomach I’ve been eating tums like candy and drinking ginger ale. I am able to drink half a protein shake or water without to much pressure/cramping in my stomach. I have been up since 3am. I woke up with the above song on my mind.
The last few days have been really hard on my body. I think it’s because I haven’t been able to rest. However, this week I have gone to bed as soon as I get off from work. I have managed to work and teach two classes. I’m really not even sure how except BUT God!!!
Yalll I’m so hungry!!!! Do I eat and feel sick or not eat and feel sick and hungry????? I make the decision to eat but I know it’s going to be bad lol….And it has been every time🤷🏾♀️. Between my teeth and jaws hurting and my stomach cramping it has been crazy. Stress has been pretty low because I’m not really talking to anyone.
I did find out I made a B in my summer class. I’m kind of devastated but I am trying to stay calm because my body was doing all kinds of things this summer.
I called my rheumatologist and he’s closed today. I’m debating on going to the doc in the box or just waiting it out. I’m really not sure what to do.
Pray for me and whatever this is it goes away as quick as it came. I have a lot to do but this weekend is actually free. To bed I go!!!!!
