Yay it is Friday, which means we have survived another week and can look forward to the weekend. This is a lighthearted look at the menopause. Where each week I talk about various topics and also share things that have happened to me.
You have been there with me through the trauma of my front tooth breaking during lockdown 1. The numerous dentist appointments I have gone through. Last Friday, I finally had my tooth taken out, this went was quite traumatic. Not for the tooth extraction, but my dentist had to keep breaking parts of the tooth, and the noise went right through me.
Sadly, during pregnancy 18 years ago, my teeth suffered. Previous to this I had lovely strong and healthy teeth, which my daughter drained from me. I was told that my teeth would start to go at some stage, apparently this is more common than you think. I was left with weak teeth and very strong roots. Which brings me back to today, I still have the root in place.
I have to make the decision to keep it there, or have surgery to remove it. After having a week of wearing dentures, they are something that is very weird and I am not enjoying. My mouth is still bruised and sore and I can feel the root so think I am going to have to agree to surgery to have it removed.
No one understands
Is your house like mine, everyone thinks you are there to run around after them, while you are trying to sort dinner, put the washing out/get the washing in, feed the dogs, clean the house and the list goes on. I swear if I say I am busy I get looked at as if I have two heads. I keep saying one of these days I am going to walk out and go away for a week, with no warning and see how they cope. But truthfully I would be devastated if they did.
Zone out time
One thing I am lucky to have is strong nails, which means I can grow my nails easily (I have my Mum to thank for that). Last year my husband treated me to a gel nail kit, with the uv light. I have slowly been adding to my collection and loving taking that time out to paint my nails. I just need a nice area to store them where I can see them properly.
How has your week been?
