For drugs and lots of them. For modern medicine a CVS in town and drugs. This week of excruciating jaw pain has reminded me that I’m lucky to have access to medical and dental care, whereas many people do not. So I’m grateful. Even if I’m in pain.
I’ve been incapacitated for a few days due to a wisdom tooth extraction. Yay. Now, if only the feeling in my tongue would come back and the constant throbbing in my jaw that’s making the rest of my teeth and my ear hurt would just go away, I’d be ever thankful. But for now, I’m grateful I have dental insurance, a flex plan, and prescription drugs that keep me from weeping in pain.
Day 61- a morning on the farm, the first in a few weeks as my foot has been healing from a chronic problem.
Day 62- to modern medicine, which I can access readily and reasonably, because I can afford my employer’s healthcare plan.
