i'm sick -- abscessed tooth

Somehow I got an infection in the gum below a tooth where I'd had a root canal. I finally got some pain medication and antibiotics but I'm still barely functional.

When I'm in a lot of pain I feel like death isn't so bad.

My grandma woke last week in a lot of pain, she stayed lying in bed, crying, for an hour.

She realized, as many of us will, that these bones, this shell, can only heal itself so many times.

The pain she feels now will be with her until the end.
