I had roots from a broken tooth removed. Wednesday I had a crown on a cracked tooth and a broken filling replaced. And ALL WEEK LONG my mouth has been in so much pain. I haven't been able to sleep or eat (because of the extraction and a wound on the other side of my mouth). I'm exhausted and nutrition deprived.
I went back to the dentist and told him how it's still in major pain. He didn't think it was a dry socket, and thought it was because of the crown throwing off the bite on the side of the extraction. He fixed the bite, but was WRONG that didn't help.
On Saturday I met up with 9 other photographers for a get-together. They started out the day meeting up at a coffee shop in the morning. I met up with them at 10 at the library. We'd reserved a room for the day for our use. We did some introductions and critiquing work/websites for the first part of the morning. Then we got lunch and went out for some shooting/posing stuff.
I was in a lot of pain, it was cold and windy and I really just wanted to be in bed sleeping. It was so sad, because I was SOOOOOOO looking forward to getting together with them, but my mind was so fried from lack of sleep and nutrients I just couldn't get into it, or think of anything creative or fun to do. I kind of just followed the crowd and watched mostly.
I did get a shot of at least everyone there, except Christina who left before we started shooting and Daniel, and Scott. I'm not sure how I didn't get any good ones of them.
After shooting we went back to the library where we saw what people had shot. I shared a couple of techniques I use for popping eye color and for removing dark circles under the eyes.
Anyway, here's a few shots I took....
This is Julie. She is so cool. She's been the backbone of the whole GTG.
This is her friend Alissa, who has a great personality. She was fun to meet.
This is the Haraldson's, Laura and Scott. They are wedding photogs. Yin and Yang. They seem like they are having fun in life together.
This is Jenn. Her and her husband are wedding photogs as well. She is adorable and it was great to see her work.
Here is Julie shooting her
This is Joe. I didn't get to chat much with him so I don't know much about him, but I liked the work he shared with us.
Saturday night I had made brownies for our class, one of our boys had a birthday, and I was so sad I couldn't have any. I got upset with how I didn't like how I looked in my hair had looked in the pictures people had taken of me, so I cut myself some bangs again. Now they keep poking me in the eyes because I kept them long.
I went in for an appointment I had scheduled to start work for a new bridge. I told them about all the pain I've been in and how much trouble it's caused me. I found bone in the extraction site last night. They think it's dry socket. They packed it with medicine that I have to go back and have changed every few days. They said it should take the edge off of the pain, but I don't think it has.
They also tried to convince me that the wound on my other cheek is a canker sore. I personally think they got my cheek when they were working on my teeth. But they won't admit it.
Now I sit here wondering if what I'm feeling in the hole is gauze pack or food.
Oh my gosh, I am praying that I am on the mend now.
