Has stopped being at all funny, or even interesting. My tongue is covered in one long blister where I can’t keep from chewing on it. Can’t swallow thanks to throat swollen again; don’t know if it’s lymph nodes fighting infection or something as yet unknown. Can’t close teeth without shooting pain. It’s been like this since June. I can handle my coursework, and I can handle my teaching load, and I can even handle keeping a part time job, but I can’t keep up unless my baseline is healthy. Baseline has been “omnipresent low-level pain” for months. Tired of painkillers and antibiotics and nothing helping.
Have no idea where to go from here, short of just pulling the tooth. Don’t even know if that would solve the problem. Sick of being sick.
