Holiday Update

Hey guys!

So I haven't update much despite being off the past two weeks and having the time.
I feel like every time I want to get around to update I either end up having a bad jaw day or I end up getting distracted by other things and it just doesn't end up happening.

So this holiday season has been up and down with my jaw. I saw my massage therapist twice. Last week I felt good for a few days after having the massage, but this week I have a horrible migraine and jaw pain after my massage so I don't know if its beneficial or not anymore.

I've had horrible jaw pain, neck pain and headaches for the past 12 hours or so, actually longer than that because I ended up passing out almost all afternoon yesterday.
Its almost 4pm and I've been in bed all day today. I decided to try ice packs instead of hot packs and smoothies to try to numb any feeling in my face. I was going to take a T3 but decided to take extra strength Advil instead.
My current disgusting state
This christmas was a good one. I skyped with my mom and stepdad in aussie for hours on christmas eve, which was christmas day over there so it felt almost like having them here for the holidays. I baked a lot of cookies. I almost managed to get my shopping done, although i hate the last minute rush that having exams drives me into. My only blood related sibling spent christmas in Quebec so I didn't see him, it was a very quiet christmas, but still nice with the family I do have here.

I went boxing day shopping with my best friend, we got up at 6am and I'd have to say we did pretty well. 

And here are some additional photos taken over the past couple weeks.
I also went to a Tiesto Concert <3

Ugh my stupid brace face lol

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your day today, Terra. I've made taking Advils a regular part of my day now, since my jaw and neck are constantly hurting. It sounds like you had a nice Christmas though. Take care!

  2. Thanks so much Max. I hope the pain gets better for you. I've been switching between hot and cold packs and I found that helps as well.

  3. I feel for you on headaches and jaw pain... I just hope you get some relief before april or may of your surgery! Love that jacket by the way! Happy holidays

  4. I'm sorry to hear that your still so uncomfortable :( I know that this can't be easy. Hopefully you can get your surgery done soon and put all of this behind you.

    On a happier note that is one fab jacket and a super adorable dog! Hoppy holidays, girl and just keep looking to the future!

  5. Sorry to hear about the pain! Hopefully it lets up a bit, I can only imagine what it feels like. Although I do know what its like to live off the pain meds and that is NOT fun! On a happier note, awesome jacket, great camera - You'll have fun taking pictures, your cookies look delicious, and your dog rocks! My bf hates when I dress up our poodle/bichon! ;) Feel well soon and Happy New Year to us brace faces ;)

  6. I'm so sorry to hear how much it hurts!!

    I just found your blog via your youtube videos while searching for information on openbites. I actually have an openbite with a slight underbite as well. I recently went to the oral surgeon for my first consult because of a lot of jaw pain, and within about a year and a half will have to have what I assume is the same surgery as yours. My jaw has been hurting something terrible for about four months, and now I know why!!

    I'm really glad to have found your youtube and your blog, because this surgery scares the crap out of me, and it's good to see that other people are going through the same thing as well.

    Also, that coat is so cute, and tiesto rocks!! Seems like we have a lot in common.

    I have a blog, too!!
