Pulling Out Some Teeth

As a child I was always terrified of going to the dentist. And no, it wasn't because I had a really horrible experience. Well, not one that I can remember. I think maybe I was scared because I watched as my sister got several injections in her mouth. I can't remember what the procedure was, but i don't remember her ever getting fillings or having an extraction. All I can recall were the needles being put in her mouth...
I had severe Belonaphobia (don't know if i spelled that correctly but I'm talking about the fear of needles). So, seeing a series of injections being put into my younger sister's mouth freaked me out. Anyway, one day, years later the dentist told me I was going to have to have a tooth pulled because it grew out in an odd place and I kept putting it off. It wasn't visible when I spoke, nor did it bother me or cause me any pain, so I never got it pulled and even avoided gong to the dentist once I no longer had dental insurance...Dumb idea, I know...

Many, many years later I got a really bad tooth infection in one of my bottom wisdom tooth areas. I had been getting sick for a few days but had no pain so had no idea it was being caused by my tooth. I had frequent headaches and sluggishness, and even one day I woke up with one of the worst headaches I've ever gotten in my life, accompanied by a pretty high fever. I was even seeing spots. Took some meds to lower the fever, drank lots of water and tea. Got over that, but continued to feel terrible. I honestly started to think I was dying. Then my ear was hurting a bit and i thought I had a bad ear infection. Went to a nearby clinic and they gave me amoxicillin. That helped a bit but i still felt slightly ill. I looked all over the unternet and started finding other people's stories with similar symptoms who ended up learning that it was all caused by an infected tooth. Read that a bad infection could spread and even lead to death!! I have a little family and so I knew I had to go get it checked out. I had to get over my dental fears.

My fiance' suggested I go to his dentist and I found out that my tooth was very infected. They suggested a pull and after talking to my fiance and my dad, I decided that it would be best. Got it out a week later and instantly felt so much better! It was amazing to me!

I honestly had no idea...

Choose the right CBD for your daily routine

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone. Most people have no idea it exists… Yet, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a neural network that exists throughout your body and in every organ! Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced. In fact, if you are experiencing issues such as inflammation, tremors, stress, lack of appetite or even pain… Then, it’s very likely that your ECS system is imbalanced. And to put your ECS system back in balance, it is time for you to discover the power of cannabinoids. Today, I hope to make this easier for you… My friends over at Elixinol have an amazing product called 300 mg Cinnamint Hemp Oil Drops Tincture   and  900 mg CBD capsules  that contains full-spectrum, 100% organic hemp cannabinoid extract.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving #guestpost

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’re packing things in the boxes they originally came in such as your pans, Keurig or pots make sure to label your boxes with the room, general contents, and whether it’s fragile or not.
