Since the carnival didn’t pan out, I’m bringing back this weekly post which features my favorite articles and giveaways from around the web.
I’ve been having pain with one of my molars for a few weeks but it has gotten to the point I can’t ignore it any longer. Last Monday, I went to my dentist and he adjusted the bite to see if that would resolve it since he couldn’t see anything wrong via x-ray.
He said if it didn’t resolve the only solution is a root canal. Unfortunately, it did not get better and in fact was so bad I called him after hours for the first time because ibuprofen wasn’t enough. I’ve been his patient for over a dozen years so that tells you how bad I was feeling.
So, if some of this doesn’t make sense it’s because I’m blogging on Vicoden.
