I really don't want to moan too much especially after all the trouble I've had at the dentist recently but once again I've been feeling really sick. When it comes to my tooth problems the really bad front tooth still hasn't settled fully but it feels a lot better and I have confidence the infection shouldn't come back and bother me again, extremely hopeful of that too. I've been grinding my teeth a lot as evidenced by the wreck that my mouth guard is in, filled with dents and cracks but that's been because of stress and hopefully in time I can reduce my stress which will help me feel better and recover.
Work right now is my main stress factor as well as home life since my dad is back again but after this week work is going to finally die down. Since school starts again next week there's been a huge influx of parents coming into our work to buy their school sports uniforms and we've been making some incredible business out of it, James has been drafted in to work because of the sheer amount of customers we've had and it's been the busiest in a long time and possibly the busiest it'll be all year. With Christmas quickly approaching I am going nowhere any time soon even when work dies down a good bit so I'm not particularly worried on that side of things, I just need some time to be able to recover from how busy things have been haha, it's something I'm really not used to and it's been keeping me busier.
How busy work has been is one of the reasons why I haven't been to the doctor yet about my recent health worries, last week I took Wednesday and Thursday off work because of how ill and weak I'd been feeling and then ever since about Saturday I've been plagued by a consistently agonising sore throat. It feels like sandpaper, like my throat is almost scarred and that's actual something I'm used to. When my appendix burst a few years back my throat was scarred after the operation and I could barely eat for two weeks while it recovered. I don't think my throat pain is related to that though currently. Maybe once a month it gets sore and painful then dies down again only to come back again later in the future.
It's been pretty much the same with my illnesses too, leaving me constantly feeling ill whether it's via sore teeth, a sore throat or this illness. I've already been cited to have a poor immune system which is possibly why I'm attacked by illness so often. The combination of this illness and my sore throat which constantly keep coming back has convinced me that I've got to go to the doctors though. The minute work finally dies down and I go back to my normal hours I'll be booking an appointment but that's not going to be for at least the rest of this week and possibly a bit more into next week. I've got to go though, please don't let me forget haha!
