Today I was up at the crack of stupid to do and early shift at work, this was to accommodate getting 4 cavities filled at 3:10pm. Left work went to the dentist office and got down to business….except the lovely dentist did not book enough time to get all four done which means I get to re-do today all over again tomorrow…. Only good news is it’s only one cavity…. I don’t remember fillings hurting as much as my poor mouth and jaw hurt right now. I did take some pain killers and I think I may take some more so this post may be short but full of awesome!
I want to say is that my sister Crystal is AWESOME at taking care of me when i’m not feeling well or making sure she is there for me.
When I get cavities done I have to hope that it’s not too sunny out because of the way my nerves are sometimes the freezing makes my one eye close. The problem is that if it’s sunny the other eye will also close making it slightly hard to navigate home. This has happened once and I was alone, I managed to get home safely however not quite sure how because I ran across a road not being able to see if there were any cars coming.
Crystal has also helped me on the 2 occasions in 1 year where I tore a muscle in my neck, the first time it happened my neck was sore but I found if I didn’t move around or move in a certain way I was ok. I got dressed put my shoes on and headed out the door to go volunteering. As I was standing at the bus stop waiting for the bus the pain became unbearable, I’m thankful that the bus stop is right near my house so I managed to make it home but by the time I got to the door I was in tears, I’ve been through a lot of pain but THAT was something altogether different and I hope none of you ever experience that. My mom helped me into the door, and crystal hearing me crying got out of bed to help me. She took my jacket off, my shoes, and went right to the internet to see what she could find that would help me. She came back with pain killers and a heating pad, she helped me get more comfy on my chair and every 10-15 minutes came to re-heat my heating pad. The next time it happened almost a year later I knew it was coming (one does not forget that pain) and I was able to minimize it, Crystal once again came to my aid, helped me up the stairs and got the heating pad. This time I managed to actually make it to work, of course Crystal thought I was nuts.
Took this on our way to CALI in July 2013
I love my sister Crystal for all she does for me and for my mom, she is our mom’s primary care giver and has scarified a lot. I love that Crystal introduced me to World of Warcraft, Firefly and loads of other things. I love that when she accidentally made me fly over my handle bars of my bike as a kid she took the best care of me. I love her passion for collecting dragons and try to get her new ones when I can. She even has an awesome BIG dragon tattoo on her leg! I love that she doesn’t get made easily and when I get moody she rolls with it. I love that we are into the same things but I love that we also like different things, I like when I can get something that I like that she will think is the ugliest thing around but we laugh at it together. I love that when I’m out with her and I get frustrated that I’m being stared at she tells me to just forget about them while secretly giving them the stink eye!

So this post is mostly about my love for my awesome sister Crystal and my not so much love for the dentist! One more tooth to get filled and one tooth that will get extracted in a few weeks..Oh what fun!
