The braces are biting back!

Well so far this week has been rubbish for my mouth, and the outlook for the rest of the week continues to look bleak. My braces are currently having an argument with the left hand side of my mouth, and the braces are winning, quite well I may add!

Something must have moved because all this week they have been cutting in to my cheek and it's rather sore. I woke up this morning and it felt like my cheek and braces were one. Either my cheek had tried to grow over the braces in an attempt to fight back or the braces had hooked on to my cheek and were not that willing to let go. I had a good old look in the mirror and although there are no ulcers (thankfully) it's rather bumpy and cut up, I can see where my cheek it trying to toughen up but it's just not doing it quick enough. The wax that the orthodontist gave me would be brilliant right now but I've obviously put it in a very safe place for when I do need to use it, so safe that I cant remember where!

So I have that war waging on the left hand side of my mouth and on the right hand side my lower wisdom tooth has decided to rear it's ugly head and inflict pain and swelling on my poor unsuspecting gum. I don't know if this happens to anybody else but when I get wisdom tooth pain it seems to manifest itself in other ways too like swollen glands in my neck, sinus pain, headache, jaw ache and a general feeling of being unwell and wanting to stay in bed and eat ice cream all day. I've had to opt for work, ibuprofen and cups of Lady Grey tea instead.

So my poor boyfriend has had to listen to me moaning and whittling on about my mouth and showing him the damaged cheek and making him decipher sentences like; "Lut, lut, an ooo see air de races are atching on ry cheek? Uz it lut rad?!" So sorry Ben for being such a big wimp and trying to talk to you with my mouth open and my fingers in it.

On a very positive note, I'd like to say a huge, ginormous, massive well done to my little brother Matthew who got his degree results today, he passed his degree in French Studies with an outstanding 2:1!!!!!! Well in baby Biff, Je suis très fier de vous!
