It’s true that when a person is in pain they tend to make dumb decisions, that being said someone in fear of pain seems to be equally likely to make stupid choices.
Right now I seem to be in the latter category although for most of last night I was in the first one.
Last night my entire left side of my face was throbbing in agony because of my two broken wisdom teeth on that side of my mouth. I have a dentist appointment, before you all go crazy and start to rag on me for not getting my ass to a dentist right away when the pain started.
Last night the pain would come and go and I tried everything I could think of to stop the pain, I would sit up and distract myself with a computer game, or the television and as soon as the pain stopped I’d try to lie down again and wham the pain would come back.
Eventually I figured out how to sleep and managed to get about 2 hours, if I was lucky.
But now the kids are all gone to school and I’m thinking lying down for a nap for a couple of hours sounds good but then I get afraid of the pain and decide that I need to do one last load of laundry this morning, or dammit perhaps I should get on my hands and knees and scrub the floors. Anything to not end up lying down and feeling that torturous pain yet again.
Pain had me up all night, the fear of pain has me up all day.
