Anyway, I gradually healed up. Life went on.
Then a new thing occurred…teeth (not just tooth pain) but random floating moving pain and bone pain involving my teeth.
I found it hard to concentrate. Then I found myself only doing what was necessary because of the pain.
I went to the dentist, talked with my medical doctor…had a new filling put in, took Advil, hot packs/cold packs; you name it.
Gradually my mouth felt like it was breaking apart tiny bit by tiny bit.
Finally, it has been decided the pain is a result— a sort of residue, of the ulceration and a weird-like tissue death, from the spider bite.
The whole thing rather caused me to think way too loudly —mainly at night when trying to sleep 🙂
At least I know now.
At least I can rest and not have my thoughts gather and disappear down a rabbit hole.
I can go forward into my new normal
Accepting the new creation in my body
Where pain didn’t exist before
It isn’t anything that I can’t live with, now that I understand it
It can’t break me. It is just the new normal.
