Yeowch !

Yeowch !, originally uploaded by speedvegan.

Had my seventh adjustment yesterday. By now I know better than to expect a simple "in and out" procedure. I was right.

I went from a sissy wire to a heavy manly man wire. The assistant working on me had a really hard time trying to get the new wire through the last two molars, so Dr Short told her to stop at the adjacent ones which is what caused that weird shifting problem before, so of course I wasn’t a happy camper.

I have to keep telling myself this man knows what he’s doing, but it’s hard after everything I’ve gone through with medical and dental staff. After my bike accident a few years ago, I had to correct the nurses who were trying to xray my right arm which was virtually unharmed while my left arm was the size of my leg and covered in blood. It’s scary, people !

I was in too much pain to complain yesterday but I plan to call the office when I don’t feel like punching a wall anymore. You can never be too careful and I am paying crazy money for this torture.

That funny guy I live with put speech bubbles on my registration renewal sticker because I always forget to stick them on my plate (even though I renew months before my birthday).

We had a big department lunch meeting today. Normally there’s nothing for me to eat, but this time the director made me my very own veggie sandwich and brought me an apple ! I was blown away !
