Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

Sometimes in life.... you get thrown some curve balls.... Remember my last post where I said I couldn't wait for the weekend... Well.. the weekend came and went and I spent it in bed! I thought I might have pushed my jaw out of joint... or worse had an abscessed tooth. So after a MILLION different drugs that wouldn't even TOUCH the pain I was experiencing my GRACIOUS dentist took me in yesterday....

The Good news... NO Cavities....
The Bad news...I have facial neuralgia

According to everything I read.. facial neuralgia is the WORST nerve pain anyone can experience and because modern medicine can they gave it a nickname.. "The Suicide Disease".. Nice HUH? I guess the pain can get so bad it drives people mad. After this weekend.. I could see that.

So I ran to my GRACIOUS family physician who took me right in as well and prescribed me a anti-seizure medication to hopefully combat the nerves in my cranium... the downfall to that.. I fell like my body is dragging bricks... UGH!. After taking it last night I still feel the pain but not as intense and it seems to be segregated to one spot now and now whizzing all over my mouth like this weekend.

So.. instead of being bummed about it.. I'm trying to look at the positive in this... what that is right now.. I'm not sure.. but everytime I see this picture of the bunny that I took a few weekends ago.. it makes me laugh!!

If you can believe it... I am reading a book but I can't focus on it.. to even tell you about it... I've been watching mindless TV shows... stuff I can't even BELIEVE people get paid to air.. OH MY!
I haven't been reading blogs cause I can't sit in one place long enough... but know when I get to feeling better.. I'll be back to reading yours!! I promise!!
