Half Hamster

Ow. So kids, this is why you should take care of your teeth. I think. I’m not actually 100% sure the culprit here is my teeth. Either way, my cheek’s swollen up to the point where I look like I’m half hamster (the left half, in fact). This hurts, though not excruciatingly, more the sort of dull constant throb that wears you down over many hours.

Like I say, I don’t know if this is a tooth thing, but I’ll find out tomorrow at my emergency dental appointment. It hurts to open my mouth too much, so it’ll be interesting finding out how they’re going to examine my teeth. In the meantime, I’m taking painkillers and eating soft foods, because chewing makes my jaw hurt.

Hi, I'm James. I'm a 26 year old guy from England with bipolar disorder (currently well controlled). I also have a circadian rhythm sleep disorder (not so well controlled). This blog has charted my journey from mental illness, through diagnosis and, recently, into recovery. It's not always easy, but then, what is?


Self-righteous note about smoking

As of 12th September 2008 it has been forty five weeks since I quit smoking. So in another seven weeks it'll have been a whole year.
