JewBu Quest: From Abuse to Happiness

JewBu: a Jew who practices forms of Buddhist meditation & spirituality. This blog documents my quest to 1) heal from sexual, verbal, and emotional abuse, 2) come to terms with losing Mom and Grandma to Alzheimers, 3) find balance, explore the spiritual, stay present. Bascially, I've experienced some pretty crappy shit in my life and want to find a way to move past it and find happiness.

I was having pain in one of my teeth starting Sunday morning. Yesterday, I went at 7:30am to my dad's dentist downtown, and he took me in without an appointment, took a couple of x-rays, told me that I need a root canal, that he'd arrange it with a, I have a super bad migrane, and I'm trying to work but I just started crying because I can't take how bad this pain is in my head with the tooth and the migrane and I feel naucious from the migrane and have lots of work to do. Luckily, my chiropractor will fit me in at 7:30pm tonight, but I don't know how I'm going to be in pain until then and then be on the Plaza at 7:45am tomorrow to get a root canal and in between comfort my mother. Oy, dad just called; he needs me to go to mom's place because he locked his keys in his trunk.

Oh no!!!!!!!!!!! K, I am so sorry! I wonder if your migranes might not improve after the root canal. I know you are crazy busy ---but is there any way you can get your father to drive you home from the dentist? I'm sure you'll recover soon, but it'd be good for you take it easy after the injections and all they'll give you at the dentist. Best wishes, I'm so glad they were able to fit you in so soon!!!! S.

Thanks. I made myself an appointment for acupunture at 11:30 tomorrow (first available appointment) to try to help with the infection part of the whole thing. (It seems that the problem is an infection in my tooth.) My friend, K, offered to pick me up and hang out with me until acupunture, which I very much appreciate. They're totally just going to give me local, they said, so I'm just going to take a Xanax that I have from when I couldn't sleep when I arrive at the office.
