Unfortunately, I woke up with a toothache, which actually began before I went to sleep, though it was slight then. It's gotten worse since, and I suspect I'll need to put some Orajel on it if I expect to sleep tonight. I hope the Orajel is still good, as it's been sitting on the shelf for over two years now. I don't think I'll be able to put off getting actual dental work done much longer.
To add to my current misery, I've also got a bit of headache, sneezing from allergies, a rather intense post-nasal drip, and some nausea that would have prevented me from eating a real dinner even had I not had the toothache. In short, I'm a hot mess, though there is a tiny bit of good news about that heat. I didn't have to turn on the air conditioner Thursday after all. Even though it got up to 91 outside, the apartment remained below 80. It wasn't pleasant, but it wasn't intolerable. Since I only microwaved a ramen bowl for dinner, little cooking heat was added.
Since I am so miserable, I intend to try getting to sleep earlier than usual. I must remember to put a towel under my head, as having a partly numb mouth from the Orajel makes me drool, and I don't want to wake up with a sodden pillow. My life sure as hell ain't what it used to be.
