Teeth and Poor Choices
Saturday, August 02, 2014
Yesterday was notable for several reasons. 1) I emailed my manuscript in to the editors at my publishing house and now will be waiting for their report.
And 2) I went to NY for some blood work and also a visit to the dentist. I have Sjogrens Disease which messes with your body's ability to produce fluids....Saliva, tears, you get the picture. The lack of saliva rots your teeth. Six months ago I had no cavities. Then came my diagnosis and the now, I found I had four cavities. So yesterday he filled the four. I have to brush my teeth every time I eat and also must floss. I had bought a water pik with the sonic toothbrush and found out that the water irrigation feature can destroy your gums if you aren't careful. PLUS you still have to floss even with that. grrrr. My big problem I KNOW is that I snack in the middle of the night. I have to stop that or I won't have any teeth left.
Yesterday after the dentist ...my dad and I went to Friendly's to eat dinner. I won't tell you what I had because I'm too ashamed. And the bad part was that I didn't even enjoy it. Lately when ever I go to a restaurant and I decide what I want to eat and the waitress comes ...and I panic. I forget what I wanted and I look at the menu and order the first thing that comes to my eyes. I've had some really bad meals that way. I don't know what my problem is. I need to have the guts to tell the waitress I'm not ready. This waitress was really pushing us last night. She came by three times in ten minutes to ask if we were ready to order....and I really wasn't.
Then to put the cap on a busy day...we got stuck in traffic on the highway going home due to road construction ...so we got off the high way to take the backroads...us and everyone else. It took us two hours instead of one hour to get home. That was a really long day.
And for the past week Spark People has not even been on my radar.
I'm sorry to all of you who depend on me....members of the RAD team etc. I will try to get back on the ball this week.
Have a good weekend all of you.
