So about a year ago, I had an overzealous moment with a PedEgg. It's really Tim's fault because his feet are all soft and lovely (yes, lovely). Like if you were gonna massage feet, you'd probably pick his. So I was jealous cuz I'm the girl and I am supposed to have the pretty feet. Anyhoo, I guess I went too far because I've been struggling with my right foot since then. See if you don't wear shoes with heel cups, the skin gets all dried out and cracks and stuff, but if you do wear a shoe with a heel cup, it HURTS. So it's gotten to this stupid cycle where it hurts to walk, hurts to put on a shoe, but gets worse if I wear flipflops. Anyhoo, I've tried all the internet things and I'm going to a podiatrist on Monday for help.

I also had a tooth extracted on the 8th I think? Maybe it was the 1st. Anyway, the pain just isn't going away. Vicodin works but mostly because it makes me so high I don't care which I can't get away with at work. I did have a really yummy Chocolate Porter (Boulder Shake) at the bar at Whole Foods (yes there is a bar at whole foods) yesterday before I got on the bus and that helped. Maybe I'll do it again today.
So, I have these two stupid little pains that really aren't THAT big of a deal. But it's just this underlying constant pain that is turning me into a mega asshole. I am so on edge - I snapped this morning because I dropped the bottle of Tylenol.

Anyway, there are way bigger problems in the world, I'm a big fat baby. I couldn't post this on Facebook, that's how embarrassed I am that I am so affected by such a minor set of problems. I know people that hurt all the time every day, everywhere and they are not nearly as bitchy as me. I just know you guys will understand. Or at least laugh at me to my face.

Mouth pain is fucking horrible. It just is. Go back and have it checked out, you shouldn't be in this much pain this long after.

Yeah, I was in there on Tuesday? He said it was looking good. Just I guess I'm a super wimp when it comes to mouth pain. He said he gets the most complaints of pain on the bottom molars so I guess i'm not special or anything at least.

When I was having the dental pain I had to go in twice, to end up finding out that I had an abscess and infection. If you are in pain keep bugging them.

I think you are underestimating the tooth pain. It's one of the worse shit you can go through.
is it a dry socket? I've followed somewhat on facebook, but you said it's not a dry socket ... but it hasn't gone away.

I've had a root canal NOT be done right and that caused constant pain. I had to have them go back and do it again. That part sucks so much. Is your insurance good or is it the doctor that is sucking hard?

Hey, just because there are others out there who are in worse pain doesn't mean that yours isn't valid.

There is always going to be someone who has it worse off than you in pretty much anything you experience. That's a thing, but it doesn't mean that they are the only one who's ever allowed to hurt.

*hugs* Pain is a spoon-suck. Doesn't matter what anybody else thinks. Pain is pain. If it bothers you, it's a thing. And you don't have to make excuses or feel bad if it makes you cranky or if it throws you off your game. Good that you are doing what you can. I agree with the tooth thing. Bug'm if it doesn't get better. Tooth and jaw related infections can be really dangerous. In the meantime, hang in there.
