I could use some prayer. I did something to my back yesterday, pulled a muscle or something. I also have some dental issues I need taken care of, including a broken tooth that I've been putting off dealing with since I tried going to the free dental clinic downtown a few years ago and had either a panic attack or an allergic reaction to the stuff they used to numb my mouth, because I started shaking and couldn't stop.
The tooth is almost completely gone now, losing bits of it at a time, with the last big piece coming out Christmas day, but there are pieces still in the gum that have to come out and it hurts. I have some grapefruit seed extract that I've been rinsing with, that is a natural antibiotic (read about it online) and has helped keep the pain at bay in the past. It hurts worse now than when most of the tooth was still there.
I'm petrified of the dentist. We're looking for one who will put me under to take care of everything that needs done at once. I've had three c-sections and a hysterectomy, so you'd think a visit to the dentist wouldn't be a big deal, but no.... Last time I had anything done was when I had all four wisdom teeth out at once in 2000, because I developed an infection and Frank drug me to the dentist, who referred us to a dental surgeon, as one of them was coming in sideways.
Last night, I kept flipping between too hot and feeling cold, but I don't seem to have a fever, so it may just be the stupid hot flashes (I have a patch that is supposed to help with that). I barely slept at all last night and feel like I've been hit by a truck. I stayed home from church this morning.
