It seems like my recovery this time is easier. I am having fewer problems overall, using fewer pain killers. I went for a Vicodan last night because of pain and inability to get to sleep, but the pain was more in my legs than in my mouth. And I was looking to the sleep-inducing effects of Vicodan, too. Why people get addicted to sleeping pills.
As I read through the entries back then in October I also realized, not for the first time, that my entries lately have been far less interesting. I haven't been writing about many things that have been going through my mind. Why, I wonder.
