Today I learnt that I have a temporomandibular disorder – Hurray!! 

Now I get to add yet another section to my healthy-living routine, this one involving me opening and closing my mouth like a relaxing frog.

This afternoon I carried out my most ambitious experiment yet into ‘mind over matter’ – in the dentist’s chair.

I was told that I needed a filling replacing – thus quite bit of drilling would be necessary. 

As I sat there, the noise of the drill going straight through my jaw and into my brain, I thought of the nicest possible things I could think of, which for reasons of decency I won’t share with you here. 

Well, it was so relaxing that I nearly fell alseep, THAT’S how good it was!  

Anyhow, yes, I was told that I have temporomandibular disorder, which is treated by doing regular jaw exercises.

I’m told that I should see results in three weeks – watch this space.
