So in adding to the list of my weird health issues the latest is TMD (also know as TMJ). Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint, and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving the jaw. I woke up one morning just before Thanksgiving and could not open my jaw more than an inch. I thought it would pop back into place as it always does. It has been stuck this way ever since. I have been working with my dentist to figure out what is going on. He diagnosed me with TMD. I now wear a night guard to sleep with. Besides my jaw mobility being limited my dentist has told me I can't sing, eat foods that require lots of chewing, or talk very much. supposed to talk much. LOL!

It really has not bothered me to much as of late. That is until I went to a wedding this past Saturday. At the reception there was lots of talking laughing, and singing. I guess I kind of forgot myself and participated in these activities. Well I have paid for it this week. I'm back to square one. I'm kind of living with my heating pad right now. I consider it a small miracle that I have made it through the work week.

So that is the continuing journey of my weird health issues. Thanks for listening and praying

I know it has been a WAY long time since I have blogged but here it goes...


I love the character dynamics and how it is a crime show but makes me laugh at the same time. So anyways, there is a character on the show named Abby. Whenever Abby is upset or something goes wrong she grabs her stuffed friend Bert. Bert is a Hippo. Not only is he totally adorable but he makes farting noises. LOL!

Here is a pic with Abby & Bert...
So I would love to have a stuffed animal like this. I did a bit of research. Come to find out the stuffed animal is real but the farting noises are not! They add them in the editing room. Such a dissapointment.
Still makes me laugh though... :-)
