Damn, anna, I didn’t know you dealt with that shit.
I had an abscess tooth a few years ago. It was, hands down, the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. I’m normally very tolerant of pain..broke my arm and didn’t go to hospital for a few days because it didn’t hurt ‘enough’ to qualify for how a broken bone is “supposed” to feel. but, that abscess tooth completely brought me to my knees. I couldn’t even function.
Anyway, my point isn’t to talk about me, it’s just to say that I sympathize with what you’re going through, because I’ve had a taste of living with pain for prolonged periods of time, and it was terrible.
I want to say something like “I hope it gets better” etc, but that stuff sounds so trite, so I’ll just say, “sorry you’re dealing with that, anna.”
