T(oo)M(uch)J(abberjaw)October 16, 2007
Yeah. So I got to the doctor.
I have TMJ. I grind my teeth and clench my jaw out of stress, so much that I have created this condition.
And guess what he gave me. Prince Valium. I know. Right?
So I took my 5mg pill last night before bed and I expected to fall into a state of unicorns and rainbows. Not me.
When I slept with Prince Valium, I was tossing and turning and I still couldn’t find a spot where my jaw didn’t feel like it was falling off.
I am THAT tense.
Now, of course, I won’t take a whole pill during the day when I have to mother. So he told me to take a half a pill in the morning, half in the afternoon and a whole one at night.
I am THAT mother.
Wish me luck. I need to relax. And a spa day won’t cut it.
On a wonderfully bright and shiny positive note. (And that totally was NOT sarcastic!)
Fa and I got a package in the mail yesterday when we got home!
It was from Chelle!
We won two adorably dyed play silks from her Great White North Contest! (Yes, Chelle that was me poking through your archives this morning to get some linky love!)
Fa went bonkers for them. As soon as they came out of the package, they became her butterfly wings. She loves them so much she begged to sleep with them.
So thank you Chelle. This really was a special gift!
