My clear teeth aligners from Aligner Co. came in yesterday. They have been a great company to deal with. Especially since the entire treatment only cost $1300. The aligners look nice and they fit pretty good. The only problem I’m having is my gag reflex is so sensitive. After randomly gagging for the 10th or so time I decided to take them out. I put the top row back in and am leaving the bottom row out for now until I get used to it. I wasn’t expecting this to be so painful. I think it would be some-what tolerable if I wasn’t simultaneously dealing with this excruciating rib injury. I’m overwhelmed with pain right now.
I can’t lie though; after dealing with this rib injury for 5 days now, I’ve learned some techniques to help ease some of the pain. You just need to avoid any movement that will cause your rib cage to flex. Last night I slept with my arm around this big fluffy pillow. The circumference of it was just perfect to take any pressure off my ribs and I slept really good. At one point the pillow fell on the floor and I tried to substitute it with another pillow and that did not work. I really lucked out having the perfect size pillow.
My Dad Facetimed me this morning. I can’t tell if he’s drunk or just old anymore. He’s aged a lot over the past few years. He was asking me I got the pens he sent. They’ve been stuck at customs for a while now because he messed up on the paperwork. I’ve been e-mailing FedEx back and fourth trying to get everything good. I think I finally got everything straightened out. I should be getting the pens soon. I haven’t dealt much with FedEx before, but dealing with them for this pen situation and these teeth aligners, they have been very helpful.
Anyway, I’m going to take a handful of pain meds and handle some business hours stuff.
