OMG! No WAY!
This is the second time in a row that I have gone to the Dentist and been told that my mouth is doing really well! HOW COOL IS THAT?!
See with LUPUS and lupus medications, I have had a tendency to have dry mouth syndrome (I know there’s a name for it), swollen gums, bleeding gums, sensitive teeth, a sensitive or swollen tongue (TMI I know), cankers and just a whole bunch of IRRITATION!
Well lately I’ve been thinking about my Dentist appointment coming up and have realized that I have not been thinking about my mouth lately. Now isn’t that a weird sentence for ya! Funny how that is. I have been thinking about issues and symptoms in my mouth for years…EVEN BEFORE THE LUPUS DIAGNOSIS IN AUGUST 2010.
All is CLEAN AND WELL IN NAHLEEN’S MOUTH!
That may have been more than you needed to know but I’m happy to share it because right now, any good physical health is a huge VICTORY for me these days!
The ONLY REMINDER I got from my Dentist is to be really careful and pay extra attention to my Wisdom teeth (yes I still have ALL 4 OF THEM! If only I was more WISE from them…) because that’s where all the problems can really start since they’re so hard to get to. I get that reminder every time so it wasn’t a big concern.
SO HOW COOL IS THAT?!
I NEED MORE APPOINTMENTS LIKE THAT!
I was so up from that good news and appointment that I found myself eating lunch at the Veggie Grill using a gift card given to me by an awesome friend, and having my favorite B-Wing Salad (if you haven’t tried you have got to!), then driving to Santa Monica beach so I could pick up some purple hair dye and stock up at a new store (of which I LOVE and had no idea about–thank you SIRI on my IPhone–you may be creepy but you helped a lot today), ended up purchasing some special muscle soak bath salts that are all natural and stopped by a Jamba Juice to try to get some extra nutritional needs taken care of since I’m going on a special diet prep for a special Hydrogen Breathing Test on Thursday. Needless to say Wednesday will be weird, hence the dying the hair purple to pep me up for Thursday’s “UN-FUNNESS” of no eating and no meds till after the test that may take over 3 hours (YIPPY SKIPPY), and nurturing the body because lupus and MS can get very irritated from being so OUT OF ROUTINE and depleted of all things to take care of it.
I also found myself driving along the coast and parking very easily at a spot along the street with my Handicapped Placard (best part about having one is parking and not having to pay for meters or worry about time constraints unless they’re Street Sweeping–learned that the hard way years ago) and walking down the stairway (COULD NOT HAVE PLANNED THAT BETTER), only to find myself walking out onto a WALKWAY halfway onto the beach and then straight towards the ocean. It was a cloudy cool day so hardly anyone was there…THAT IS EXCEPT 2 DIFFERENT PHOTO SHOOTS (one of them may have been a music video–so WISH I knew who those 2 different women in different locations were with their whole entourages) and lots of birds taking advantage of the absence of weird human creatures.
Once that was done I dragged my satisfied self (getting tired by then but so happy to be taking care of myself and things just so wonderfully falling into place) to the grocery store to get some regular groceries and other items to help me get through the strange diet menu I need to have tomorrow to Prep for that Thursday test.
SO ALL IN ALL. A pretty good day even if I do say so myself and I DO!
Was also nice to see that our Cleo Kitty was doing better since this morning because this morning she got sick I think from eating her food too fast and that always worries us with her health issues. She seems to still be recovering but is much better I think. Was probably good for me to get away and leave her alone so she could get some REAL rest but BOY was she HAPPY TO SEE ME AND I TO SEE HER.
I LOVE MY CLEO KITTY!
OK. Time to unwind…
It’s nice when days fall into place. They rarely do that with such ease and I’m going to take the time to enjoy that…
RIGHT NOW. DID YOU BREATHE WITH ME? YOU SHOULD TRY IT. MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE.
That’s even better.
Hope you all have had a good day too! We all deserve more of those! Write to you soon!
