Today's Symptom's: woke up to chest pain and headache, but it always goes away after I get up. Had another big BM? Blows me away? Cleaner and cleaner tongue. Super energy! I feel REALLY good! I was the energizer bunny today!
I went in to the Oral Surgeon to have tooth #19 removed (the one that had abscessed.) Not fun to say the least. I had high hopes that my body could heal the tooth and the bone loss, but that tooth has been through the ringer. With a root canal, then oral surgery, and a crown for over 10 years. I wonder if that tooth was causing the chest pain and headaches?? That would be so cool if my symptom's went away now that the tooth is out?
I really LOVE the laughing gas. I love the high! The only discomfort I felt were the pinches of the anesthetic and the 20 minutes of tugging and pushing on my jaw! But, the gas made it bearable. :) I was strangely at peace. Despite the trauma, I felt peace. I really did.
They put in some cadaver bone into the hole to help stimulate growth and to prepare it for the implant that I will be getting in 4 months. I had some concern about that? I mean, can you get a disease from that? Then he stitched me up. I had to keep the gauze in my mouth for most of the day. It kept bleeding for a long time.
I picked up the prescription for the Lortab, even though I regret having to take any, but I'm glad I did because about 4 hours later I started to feel pain and even after that I was STILL in pain. So, I can't imagine how bad it would be without any pain killer! I didn't get the antibiotic but I did get the antibiotic mouth rinse that I'm supposed to do twice a day. Except, get this... they put SACCHARIN in it and blue coloring!!??? Saccharin is cancer causing??!! What the crap??!! What do I do? Oh, well...
Ya know, I've just been filled with joy today! Despite everything. I even made an appointment for tomorrow to get my labia biopsied! Can you believe it? I was talking to a good friend who said that I should just get it done to know EXACTLY what I have, so that when I am healed I can tell people what I healed myself of. At least I can know for sure and not wonder anymore. I didn't want to do it a year ago. But like I've been trying to explain, for some weird reason, I just am at peace about it.
I'm reading the amazing Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl, a MUST read for every human being! How this man still could experience happiness while a prisoner in a concentration camp is just so incredible and has taught me so much. Run out and buy it!
I'm also studying the Book of Mormon, and as a family every morning we are reading the New Testament. The Scriptures just buoy me up and uplift me so much. I love the words of the Prophets and the love they had for us and the love of our Heavenly Father. He loves us so much! I know the Book of Mormon is true scripture and the Prophets did nothing but prophesy of the coming of Christ and repentance and Faith in Him. It also tells of Christ's visit to the ancient Americans and what He taught. If you love Jesus and know Him. You will love the Book of Mormon and feel of it's veracity and recognize His words. The Holy Ghost will manifest the truth of it to you, like it has to me. I know it is true! He lives! He loves us! He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is a God of miracles. He is healing me and He can heal you.
I am a purist. I like to get to the root of things. I see things simply. If you keep the commandments(love God, love others like yourself and treat them like you want to be treated, be honest, be humble, be kind, serve others, give to and help others etc.) you will be happy in every aspect of your life.
If you eat food in it's natural state, the way they were created. Your body will be happy and you will experience true health.
If you detox and cleanse and give your body the rest that it needs to do so, your body will heal.
I don't know how to feel about tomorrow? I'm not afraid. I hope and pray that it's not cancer. And if it is, I will continue to do what I am doing and hold on to my faith and hope that what I am doing will heal me as it has healed countless others.
The Lortab is kicking in..................
