Still alive...focus on the prize

Hey friends! Yes I'm still alive...and no I didn't kill myself over the death of Michael Jackson. My rollercoaster got a little crazier after I made that last post....(personal stuff)...and then I made the long trip back to Ohio from Atlanta. I had a nice week off (not really)...to prepare myself for the board exam. Whos frickin idea was that??? Who the hell wants a vacation to study? I'd rather just bust my balls whenever I can and enjoy a week of freedom.

The board exam was un-eventful. It was 3.5 hours of my life that I rather forget...oh but wait....I pretty much did. Because then this happened...

Oooopsies! A bunch of friends joined me for a few celebration drinks......and then this happened...
We won a lobster!!!! Think vending machine with claw that usually wins (if youre lucky) a nice pink stuffed rabbit....but a LOBSTER!

LIKE THAT!!!
So we named him Lewie......short for Louis.....and had some fun.


Yes I'm smoking the lobster claw......
Then a few more drinks..


and bedtime!!! What a way to erase 3.5 hours out of your life.....
So here I am.....got a job....took the board.....only have 2 more months of clinicals!! What is a girl to do??? Well don't be fooled....clinicals are kicking my arse this month. The hospital is an hour and a half from home...so some days I've been driving there (have to be there at 6:30..do the math on what time I set the alarm for)...and other days I get a hotel. I can't wait to be done!!!

Sunday night I noticed I could no longer chew on my left side. I thought maybe all the pop I had been drinking to get me through boards gave me some cavities. I was almost positive I needed a root canal......so today I went to the dentist. Turns out I have TMJ (tempomandibular joint pain) from all the stress I've been under. Apparently I go to bed and clench my jaw to the point it's sprained now..and they put me on a soft foods diet! (pshhh....does that mean cookies?!? ) You think this is funny right? Turns out....its more common than you think...esp since the recession has gotten all these loonies stressed about their house, job, 401k, bonneville sittin on 24 in rims...etc My dentist had an article about how the dentists have seen an alarming increase in patients with TMJ in the last year from all this bulllllllllsheeeeeeeeet we've had to put up with. Final conclusion: Stress is real biatchessssss!

i define stress as a manifestation of fear, and fears were meant to be conquored. so realize the source of your stress and be confident in a plan to overcome that fear.

tmj is horrible, i'm so sorry to hear about that. it's so not cool.
