I HATE my body!!!! It's falling apart!!! First this mess with my stomach and now I've got this killer pain in my jaw that won't go away!!! Opening my mouth hurts, chewing hurts... doing nothing hurts. I don't know what it is. I've never had this before. My mom suggested that I might be grinding my teeth at night so I got a mouth guard to sleep in, to see if that would help. I wore it for about an hour before deciding there was just no way I was going to be able to fall asleep with it in. So I took it out and my jaw hurt worse for a bit after I took it out. No idea what that was about. My dad said he has TMJ and that maybe I have it too. I really hope that's not it because he said it made his jaw hurt every day for 5 years and then it just randomly went away. I am soooooo not good with pain. I can't handle this going on for 5 days. If I have to deal with this for years I don't know what I'll do.
My birthday is tomorrow. I'll be 21. My grandma wants me to help her pick out my present, which I really don't get. The only time I have knowingly picked out a present for myself was two summers ago when I went shopping with my aunt and saw this necklace I really wanted. My mom usually finds some way to trick us into picking out presents for ourselves. She'll ask us what we think someone else would like and then gives it to us instead. But I heard my mom talking to my grandma, saying "I don't know what she needs". I'm not the only "she" so they could've been talking about someone else, but who knows?
