the hard truth

Lately I have been having to deal with the hard truth....I think I have TMJ (lock jaw).  Not even kidding.  This has been something that I've really just denied....I mean, my jaw has been popping and hurting...and well...I've recently had terrible headaches that last all day long.  Yeah....lovely.

I've refused to even say it for the longest time...but the fact of the matter is...yeah, I defintely have the symptoms! But who on earth do you go to for that??? Dentist, orthodontist, jaw specialist?!?!?!?!? haha.  I dunno.  All I know is that when I'm trying to "hit the high note" in the car/shower....my jaw gets REALLY sore and I can't open it. Problem...I HAVE to be able to open my mouth.  I mean, I have so much to say!!!! AND ITS KINDA PART OF MY JOB...to talk, that is.

Then there's smiling.  It really hurts to smile.  I mean, you can't take the smiling out of me.  Sorry, bud, you can't.  That's like having salt without pepper....I just can't not smile!!!!!!

So, you see my frustrations here. 

So if you think about it...please pray for my jaw. :)
