I think I may have found an easy diet to follow. It's called the, "Damage your TMJ until it hurts so bad you cry when you chew" diet. My jaw had been hurting for a week, but I went to my dentist today when I realized that my teeth no longer touch on my right side when I close my mouth. It hurts!
I don't know what I did to injure my jaw to begin with. I don't clench my jaw or grind my teeth at night. In fact, my jaw feels better in the morning after resting it all night.
According to my dentist, a muscle in my jaw is damaged and the way to get it to heal, is by letting it rest. How do you rest your jaw though? You have to use it to talk and eat every day. So, he told me to follow a soft/not much chewing diet for the next 6-8 weeks.
Slimfast anyone? Carnation instant breakfast? Scrambled eggs and oatmeal for the next 2 months? Sounds DE-LISH.
I'm falling apart, I tell ya. Just falling apart.
Clay had his first day of preschool today. The older kids have been telling him about the fun things he'll do at preschool; namely the gingerbread hunt. They explained all about how they got to make gingerbread boys while they were in preschool. While the gingerbread boys were cooling, the kids went out to play and when they came back, the gingerbread boys had disappeared! The kids had to go on a hunt and follow the clues to find them.
They had talked about this ad nauseam and Clay was excited to begin preschool.
So today, we're in the classroom, just sitting there listening to the teachers talk. Clay turns to me and says, "When do we get to eat cookies?" He was under the impression that every day was gingerbread day in preschool. I told him that he wouldn't be eating cookies today. Deflated, he turned back to the teacher who wasn't saying anything of interest to Clay. He sat there a couple more minutes before turning to me and saying, "Well, this sucks."
I'm so proud.
