PTSD is so on the losing end…..

Tadah… pretend you see me… I gots teeth…. fake, but… I got teeth….

Walked in the clinic and if you look at me, I look like death warmed over… I’m that tired… last nights panic attacks took their toll…. and I am so glad I recognized what was happening and just dealt with it… not run from it….

Always that word it… everything is a IT…..

Everyone was professional and nothing was said of the behavior on Tuesday… I can live with that… but can the young professional… it does build character, to own your life and grow, not stagnate….

Anyhow… after some adjustment and him convincing me… I will get used to having a lip and drinking or sipping my water… and I concede, he is right….

Right now, it’s painful… and trying to eat dinner tonight should be interesting…. tomorrow the roots are removed and it should fit like a glove, when the swelling goes down….

I still have heard nothing from the VA about the dental care… only knew something was happening because Sen Shatz’s office informed hubby, who has been raising hell about the lack of care for this woman veteran…. he’s a keeper….hubby… not sure about the senator…

Anyhow… pain meds in purse… pain meds refilled and in time, till they do the implants… I will adjust to the pain… I’m just hoping it’s not a night time pain issue, like last night….. but he adjusted it very well, so, problems should be minor… when I say pain meds… I just take 600 MG of NSAIDs, which over time can damage organs and cause heart issues… but they work…

Hot outside… assholes on the street… cops cracking down on the nit noids who have huge flags flying on their vehicles… which, is beyond a hazard… it’s a death waiting to happen…..

Long day done for me… early bed… off to have surgery and shopping…. and home again….

Have a safe and wonderful Veterans weekend… this vet… is going to hide, delibertly…. and sleep a lot……

Sgt. USAF DAV I Remember… Margie….

Moral of story about PTSD on the losing end… I made myself call the clinic and get an appointment and stood up for myself with the system… and actually got better treatment today, than before…. and most of all… I didn’t lose it… after fixating on it the last couple of days…. PTSD is so losing…..
