My pain notices from different parts of my body are getting all scrambled.
I can no longer tell the difference between sinusitis, TMJ pain, and toothache. It’s taken me a week to work out that the gum around a back molar is extremely tender, especially around the tooth itself, and I have got a dental appointment for next Monday morning. (Friday morning at the moment.) Of course, if I could work out where the dratted pain is coming from, I’d have a better chance of getting an appointment for the right part of me and earlier, too.
Meh. Fibromyalgia and chronic pain disorder. Vile. Utterly horrible. Lest you think I’m really a whinger, I should add that I’m working full-time while dealing with this crap. Even if I weren’t, I am starting to think that really I deserve to be cared for and given some kindness rather than being expected to suck it up.
