My OH and i are also in a battle with housing the bungalow we are in is just not adapted for both of us and we keep getting put to the bottom of the list and i just spent most of yesterday crying which i know doesnt help but you get to a stage where you think how much more am i supposed to take.
Hope that all makes sense probably doestnt but just needed a moan.

I'm sorry your having such a rough time of it Hunibee  (((HUG)))
I hope the flu is over with. That probably made the fibro worse. I have never understood why we have wisdom teeth when most people end up having to have them removed. Mine gave me fits before I relented and had them removed. Do you have to get rid of the infection before you can have it removed???
I hope everything gets better soon.
luv and hugs

I think that Americans in particular have trouble fitting the wisdom teeth because of the whole "melting pot" genetics. Like maybe we got teeth from our huge viking ancestors in the jawbones from our tiny French ancestors?

I'm so sorry you are having such a rough time.  It does seem to come in bunches.  Hopefully the worst is over and you will start feeling a lot better soon.
I have all four of my wisdom teeth.  I did have one abcess but I didn't want it pulled.  That possibly could have caused my teeth to shift and ruin my bite.  So, I had a root canal and a crown put on it and everything has been fine now.  It does give more chewing surface so I'm glad about that.

awww hunibee.... I'm so sorry for the misery you have right now. I would guess that at some times in our lives each of us has had a time similar to this so we all can totally understand your frustration. It's time for some pampering...of yourself!

If you can take a long hot soak in the tub or a warm shower and get those muscles to relax a bit. Fix yourself something nice to drink even if it's ice water but put it in your very best glasses...a nice wine glass will do. Little things you can do for yourself to remind you that there ARE good things in life.

Sometimes when I'm overwhelmed I make a list of things I have to do. Then I pick something easy to do first. When it's done I feel some sort of accomplishment and can either choose another or quit for the day. Then move on to the next. Just do whatever little things that you enjoy and this time will's hard to believe but it will.
