Day 57 - Hospital

I didn't sleep at all last night but I did manage to fall asleep at around 7.00am but was woken up with pain again at 8.00am. This pain has been getting worse and more frequent and I was beginning to think that there was something more sinister, maybe an abcess, or because I clench my teeth whilst asleep due to stress I was thinking that I had caused some severe damage to my teeth or gums. My husband hates seeing me in pain and so he took it upon himself to ring the emergency dentist for advice but the dentist wanted me to go into the emergency surgery. At 2.30pm we got to the hospital. The dentist checked everything and even done an xray. He was very pleased to tell me that there was no abcess, not a cavity, nothing but he did diagnose severe sinusitis. WOW! I do get really bad painful sinusitis.
My own dentist diagnosed me with suffering with sinusitis so many years ago after getting pain and keep going to him thinking it was a poorly tooth, but this pain is on a whole new level. The dentist told me that sinusitis can be extrememly painful and comes in different strengths....I KNOW THAT NOW! I have NEVER had sinusitis pain this bad before but I will expect more of this level of pain in the future unless I can get a high amount of raw into my daily life which will hopefully eleviate all these problems.
I have actually only had 6.5 hours of sleep since Friday morning, 2 of those were tonight when I fell asleep at about 6.00pm until 8.00pm These were the BEST 2 hours of sleep I have had since Friday morning, I am hoping for more of this tonight!!

I started my spring challenge to include more raw in my daily diet for 66 days but I haven't increased raw much more, fits and starts really. The idea was to have as near as 100% raw for the 66 days which by the end of the 66 days I wouldn't pick at the processed rubbish because I wouldn't crave it and I would be much more prepared with raw foods for any cravings that I did have but not a lot has changed. I have 9 days left as of tomorrow so here is to the remaining 9 days to be as near to 100% raw as possible.

Well, I think that is all for today. I did manage to clean the bathroom and do a couple of loads of laundry....inbetween bouts of pain, the rest of the time my sweet husband has fetched and carried for me...BLESS HIM!
