I Wouldn't Wish This On Anyone. Ever.

I have a toothache.
[Yeah. Go ahead and laugh if you want.]

I have slept for less then 8 hours in the past 2 days.
I haven't eaten at all in the past 2 days.
It hurts to drink.
It hurts to lay down.
It just plain HURTS.

After dealing with the pain as long as I could,
I turned to the web.

Did you know that garlic is a natural antibiotic?
Yup! I have been biting down on a clove of garlic,
and it really releases me from some of the pain.
[Scale 1-10... From a 10 to maybe a 4.]

Brushing my teeth with a mixture of baking soda and vinegar
also really seems to help.
[Scale 1-10... From a 10 to maybe a 4.]
[Scale 1-10... From a 4 to maybe a 2.]

Rinsing my mouth, the problem area in particular,
with really hot water hurts, but also feels amazing.
Really amazing.
[Scale 1-10... From a 10 to a 15 and then to a 2.]

I have also been brushing the problem area with peroxide
and swishing with it.
[Scale 1-10... From a 10 to 4.]

My miracle, though, is something Patrick got me.
The Red Cross Toothache Kit.
