The pain is just tooooo much… Uncle… the VA won…

Yesterday, I did what the doc wanted… in fact, every day since the extractions last Friday, I have worn the denture from hell and today… I just can’t take anymore of it digging into my cheek bones and soft tissue…

We are home till next week… I can wear the lower partial to eat… still got 3 natural upper teeth left, in a row, thankfully and that allows me to eat some… but, always that one little word…

I can’t eat much… and by the time I get done chewing… the spasms in the hernia are full blown and it’s a contest to swallow, before it freezes everything in place in the digestive track and between you and me… that pain is making me anorexic and there is your answer about why I looked malnourished in a couple of the childhood photos….

The damage to my torso, was so severe, it changed my digestive system at 5 years old… and I have lived with this ever since…. first clue for the doctors… the heavy calcification of my ribs at 24 years old, looking like that of a 65 yr old woman… first clue my body… and none of us got it…and I asked mommy dearest… I asked….

Frustration beyond belief… stay positive, think of the outcome as my mouth pain subsides on the maxilla, but not the mandible… that partial is still in, got to be able to eat dinner… skipped breakfast and lunch, because of the pain…. totally out of sighs…. for real……………………………

Pain med taken hours ago, did nada for me… because it’s being inflicted by a device the VA made and no one listened…. no one……………………. and you really wonder why vets give up and roll over and die??? Really????

My face itch’s, especially my eyes… hoping it’s just allergy season starting… for what ever flower it is that seems to get me ever year for a few weeks…. eye surgery, itchy… depression… think clearly….

Nope, time for another bowl… so just maybe my head will quit hurting… doubt it… but hope springs eternal….
