Chewing marbles



The last two mornings have been awful. I've woken up with Migraines both times. You know, the light-sensitive ache, coupled with the movement-induced stabs of pain behind the eyes. Not fun at all. But we figured out what's causing it! I am grinding my teeth.

Yuck.

I do this when I am super stressed out. The summer after my Mom died, Chantel and I both started doing this in our sleep. It drove Amber crazy (we were all sharing a room). She said it sounded like we were chewing on marbles.

I'm not sure what has me so stressed out right now. But if I don't stop soon, Kurt has threatened to get me a mouth guard. Which would be so hot.

Don't knock it til you try it. Those mouth pieces could be a real turn on. Especially the kind that has the big head piece. Please get one of those. Please please please

Jimmy does it too. Tell Kurt to make it a double

I'm not going to lie...i've resisted getting one of those mouth guards myself because I don't want to look dumb. I'm pretty sure I grind or clench because I have TMJ problems-my jaw clicks all the time and pops out of place and my dentist noticed tiny tiny cracks in my front two teeth. That was a year ago...still haven't gotten the mouth guard. If you get one, I'll get one too! I double dare you!

Doesn't it suck? I still do that when I'm stressed too. My jaw always hurts so much when I do...

I actually did get one of those guards. But I got a cheap one. I had really bad headaches when I'd sleep with it in. But I blame that on the fact that it was cheap, and that your body has to get used to it... I'm sure it'll be better for you.

So go get one!

Dave does that too, it makes his teeth and head hurt. Get the guard... It would be very attractive!
