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.
