Yup, as the heading says…I am in chronic pain. I have been in pain since Sunday, but for the first time in my life I was trying desperately to ignore my pain, well that was until it interrupted yet another night of sleep and I managed two hours in a row before I moved my head and my jaw protested.
I ended up at A&E for 4 hours this morning, and it turns out that I have a blocked salivary gland. The first thing I thought when I heard this was “Great!” and not in a good way.
I have a job interview tomorrow and I have a sore, swollen, red jaw am in chronic pain and have poison circulating through my system which is making me feel more than a tiny bit sickly, although I don’t actually feel ill, just in absolute agony.
