Oh, and I forgot to mention...

Location: mouth
Mood: stress

My back teeth hurt from some sort of grinding in my sleep. That, and I had a dream that my old boss, Denise, was driving like a maniac in some sort of Oldsmobile Cutlass from the 1970's and I needed to get a ride from her, and it was parked in a space that was more like a large sloping pit, that she had to back out of. And then I dreamed that one of my ex-girlfriends was stuck back with one of her ex-boyfriends, and she was unhappy, and I was staying with them, and it was uncomfortable for everybody.

There. That's better.

I also neglected to tell you about my dream where I rescued someone from a fire in the woods in some building, but then had 2nd and 3rd degree burns on large parts of my body, especially my arms, and had bandages with some type of salve on them, and I woke up feeling like it had been real.

  1. If you are a full-time grinder, as I am, you should consider getting an NTI device. It's like a night guard, but only fits onto your top two teeth. It doesn't allow your back jaw to close at all and retrains those muscles to not clench up. I used to get blinding tension headaches and would wake up barely able to open my mouth to speak. I've only had my NTI for two weeks and the difference is simply amazing.

    Unfortunately, I cannot remember what NTI stands for, but your dentist will know for sure.

    Doubly unfortunate - insurance won't pay for the device. I paid $400 out of pocket, but perhaps your insurance is better than mine.
