jaw jaw jaw

I feel a little bit like humpty dumpty right now:


My jaw popped out of place on Saturday night and refuses to get better despite the muscle relaxers, the steroids, not to mention the manual force (ouch). Sigh. Ever since said event occurred, however, I have been more aware of my surroundings; particularly more aware of other people’s mouths. Weird I know. Buuuuuut…

Things I took for granted until my jaw popped out of place


-taking BIG bites


-smoothing chapstick together on my lips

-potato chips, cereal, pretzels…anything crunchy really

-opening my mouth

-brushing my teeth/flossing

-smiling normally

-speaking normally

-solid foods

-singing loudly

-laughing that big, open-mouthed laugh

-pretty much anything that requires using your mouth

Hopefully all the king’s horses and all the king’s men (aka doctors) can put me back together again!

First thing I am going to do when I am normal again is eat a ginormous hamburger. Mmmm, can’t wait.

  2. Brianna! Oh my gosh I feel so bad! your mom told me yesterday and I just about died. I hope you are not in too much pain and I hope the doctor went well today. Keep us all posted! xoxo
