cavity serach

so, at work this week, i noticed that when i step down off of things i don't do it very gracefully. hence, i don't absorb the shock with my knees as much as i should (read: not at all) and i can feel the jolt even in my head. now, i'm fairly certain that i don't actually knock my upper and lower teeth together, but i have noticed a strange pain in my face. it's on the inner 'apple' of my cheek.

at first, i thought maybe i was hitting some fillings on fillings or just some pointy tooth on an upper filling, but then i determined that i'm not hitting any teeth on anything.

a couple days later i noticed that i also feel this pain when i turn my head upside down. so, now, i'm leaning towards a hypothesis involving my sinus cavity and perhaps some terrible infection. i think that would explain this unrelenting sickness of the past couple weeks and the lack off effectiveness achieved from antihistamines.

i have some antibiotics i can take, but i am not really all that pumped about taking them. i don't like taking medicine. i don't know why. probably because it never seems to work. i know i don't like the idea of taking antibiotics without a definite diagnosis. of course, we all know i'm not going to the damn doctor.

we'll see i guess. i'm going to put it off for a while longer. in fact, i'll sleep on it! g'night, fools!

ps - i don't even want to hear about what you think of my music selection unless you like it too! i told you i'm a sucker for bubble gum pop and i already know that it's no "good."

edit: it occurs to me that my sinus cavity probably isn't big enough to be in the same place as this pain is (though i know nothing of facial anatomy). so much for my scientific reasoning.

ouch! i hope you get to feeling better. i.e.: i hope you start changing your step-down habits... ? why won't you go to the doctor? i hate going to the doctor almost as much as i hate going to the dentist.

i actually love going to the doctor. i hate waiting, but i like talking to my doctor. except the girly doctor. though i think i wouldn't even mind that if it were real doctors and not those super busy planned parenthood chicks.

so yeah... i don't go because i can't afford it. i have no health insurance. my parents say they will pay, but i find it pretty hard to justify going for anything that's non-emergent. i guess i still feel al little guilty for the ton of cash they had to shell out fo rmy wisdom teeth.
