A crabby post...

I am very, very crabby today. I am so sick and tired of having this splint in my mouth, I could SCREAM!! It comes out on Friday, which seems so far away right now. I am hungry and nothing I eat tastes good when I have to basically swallow it whole. I tried some pasta and butter today and thought I was going to choke to death because it was getting stuck when I swallowed. I quickly gave up on that idea. It's to the point where it's too much trouble to eat and I don't even want to. I'm trying to keep hydrated. I'm going to try and eat some egg flower soup later on. I am so sick of soup. Someone mentioned that I should be drinking Ensure. The word ENSURE makes me want to puke. I never again want to think about, look at, smell, or taste Ensure. Ugh, so gross.
So there's my bitchy post for the day. Sorry, but I had to get it off my chest. :)

hi there. just happened by your post and then saw this blog right after and thought maybe it could be useful. Jaw BlendsHang in there. Everyone (orthodontia/surgery patients on blogger) seems to be in a rut lately.

You are doing fine. Venting is okay and may make you feel better.

The main thing right now is not to stress out. It will get better. I never had any Ensure and I have done just fine. Try to get your vitamins in when you can.

Maybe you could try some blended sweet potatoes. I found that was good. Different flavor mike shakes are good too and they have milk to give you strength.

You are going to make it. I promise. : )

It's okay to be ticked off and tired. I'm glad you're still posting.

Have you tried milkshakes or melted ice cream? If you're a sweet-type person, I've read about people eating cheesecake batter stuff... What about a fruit smoothie? I'm sure you're tired of them, as well...

I was running a race today and after the race they gave out Muscle Milk, which I had heard of but never tried - and it wasn't bad! I tried the chocolate and my friend had the banana and they were both pretty good! Mine (the chocolate) had maybe 250 calories and 25 grams of protein - so maybe something like that could help you? There was also vanilla.

Hopefull you have a better day tomorrow. Thinking of you!
