My entire head is in pain.
This may not end up being one of my trademark introspection pieces. This very well may just be me complaining, buy really, who knows? I have the urge to write, so write I do.
I think I may have experienced a migraine today. My left eye felt as if it were going to be pushed slowly out of my head from the inside. Best of all,
this happened while I was driving. I made it there and back safely, but in so much agony. This was one of the very few times I’ve ever experienced a pain like that.
On top of that, my face feels as if it’s been punched by a million tiny fists along my jawline. The actual hinge part of my jaw is fine, but I feel like I’m recovering from a few consecutive boxing matches.
I’m unsure where the migraine came from, but I have an inkling I know why my jaw is in pain.
One of my many quirks (see my post entitled Leon) is that I clench, and click my teeth together very hard. Most of the time when I’m doing this, I do not realise that I am. AND I’ve been doing it for years, so I have numerous cracks and erosions in my teeth.
This may be the most damming quirk I own. I haven’t been to the dentist in a while because, honestly, I cannot find the time.
No, that’s not exactly true. I’m sure I can find the time, it’s just that I always get sidetracked with other things and I forget to even think about the dentist. And truth be told, I can handle any pain I get because I don’t really ever get much pain. It’s weird, for sure.
Now, though I mostly do not realise when I’m mashing my teeth together, I most definitely do realise it at some times. And when I do, it’s usually because I catch a glance from someone nearby and I get…….embarrassed? Uncomfortable? Maybe a combination of the two.
It’s funny to think about that exact feeling, because it’s one of the oldest feelings I have. I’ve been feeling that feeling since I was a 9 year old kid.
It makes me think about how everything comes back around in the end. Y’know, “what goes around blah blah blah” and all that. I find clichés to be annoying, but they work sometimes. And that’s exactly what this feeling is! A cliché! It’s something that can be summed up in one easy to swallow way. Usually it’s a phrase, in this case it’s a feeling. It’s something I know all too well, and when I realise it happening, I get annoyed. And uncomfortable and embarrassed.
Funny how that happens.
And hey, I guess this did get a little introspective after all. Maybe I, myself, am a cliché of sorts.
