How I Feel

Not too well, to be honest. The putting in of the temporary crown was an ordeal. By ordeal, I mean that it took nearly two hours to do. It wasn’t painful except for the Novocain shots. Otherwise it was just boring and uncomfortable. As for the earache, it still hurts quite a bit. I can’t even close my mouth all the way because the swelling goes down into my jaw. Not to mention that it hurts to eat. Earaches are just miserable. At least some of the swelling has gone down, but not by much. And then there is my back. Monday evening I was getting in some groceries when all of a sudden my lower back started to spasm. Now every step I take hurts. It’s ok if I’m still, but moving is painful. It did get some better yesterday, but was hurting when I went to bed last night, oh and let’s not forget that along with the earache, I have a headache that just won’t go away, I’ll probably have it until my ear clears up. 
Yet, I have to go into work anyway and be productive. Today, I have two meetings. I guarantee they will be boring. Then I go get my haircut in the evening. After that, I sort of have a date, but only if my back is feeling better.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
