I spent my morning at the dentist today for my broken tooth, the visit made possible by some kind and generous readers, and I now have some temporary filling action going on where there had been sharp jagged edged painful holes.
The dentist thinks I may be able to keep the tooth and avoid root canal, but because so much of the tooth is gone, permanent fillings aren’t possible and I’ll need a crown after they build the tooth back up.
It definitely feels better right now than it has in a long time and I’ll be able to (carefully) chew on that side again. I go back in about two weeks so they can start working on it, and a few weeks after that it will be crown time.
Now there is time to see if I can qualify for one of those dental loans that they do now to finance the thing.
Thank you to everyone who helped, prayed, and/or offered some kind words to me. I love you all.
Salutations and shadilay! On this glorious TrumpDay, our President has gifted us with a new meme, #covfefe.

Published on May 31, 2017–I thank Covfefe for creating this beautiful song, way ahead of the curve there pal.
Hello all thanks for clicking on my video. As you will learn, Covfefe is a divine word, one which should never be uttered from any lips other than those of the God-Emperor Trump. Covfefe is a sign of the blessings of Kek and it is an ancient and highly esoteric prayer word to signify balance with Kek and the living earth, or terra firma. With the guidance of Kek and the leadership of Donald, America shall now conquer the world. If you aren’t American, I feel sorry for you. We have several thousand nuclear waheads and the premier military force in the history of mankind..and we’re feeling a wee’ bit crazy right now. So strap on in and get ready for the ride, the Century is just getting started.
Ever since I died & came back, I have been avoiding discussing my health and trying to stay out of medical offices, because I hate doctors now and I’ve come to accept a certain level of pain and misery as part of my every day existence.
But there are some things I can’t ignore, like the persistent cellulitis infection I’ve had in my left earlobe that multiple rounds of strong antibiotics since the fall, over and over again, just won’t kill so I keep going back to urgent care for it just to get it to calm down but knowing that I’m ruining my kidneys with the medicine and knowing that as soon as the scripts are finished my ear will blow up again and bring with it fever, chills, serious fatigue, and more body aches on top of my usual pain from nerve damage (leftover from the Lyme and other tick diseases I spent so many years in treatment for). What really drives me nuts about the ear thing is that it itches like crazy, before it gets so bad that it becomes a deep pain. Urgent Care is out of ideas and have suggested I go to the ER to try to get IV antibiotics and to see a plastic surgeon to see if maybe they can dig the infection out. Both ideas fill me with all kinds of anxiety. I wonder if anyone reading this might have better ideas?
The other thing I can no longer ignore is this damned toothache that has been bothering me for a while. It’s on the same side as the bad ear and comes from some broken molars that used to have fillings until a few years ago. It used to be my “chewing side” since you all helped me get some teeth pulled on the upper right side two years ago. So now I try chewing on the missing teeth side but that hasn’t stopped the broken tooth side from hurting and now it is becoming unbearable. I suspect they can’t be saved and will need to come out and it is scary because dental surgery is always risky for people with Addison’s Disease. I have always been prone to the types of abscesses that require serious care, but because I have to take steroids daily for the Addison’s my immune system is compromised so these bacterial infections are more of a recurring issue.
I never thought I would wish for dentures, but they would probably make my life easier at this point.
I hate to ask, after you all have been so kind to me over the years, but I’d really like to get a handle on the dental stuff before it gets worse and I end up really sick again, so I’m asking anyway, if you can spare it, please help a blogger out.
I don’t like talking about or thinking about my health, I guess I’m all burnt out on it after so many years in a medical nightmare before my near death experience, which had seemed to actually help some things, and I’ve been treated so badly by the local Emergency Rooms where they are clueless about my condition despite always having my medical records, that I have let my anxiety get the best of me but I don’t think I can put off the stupid toothache much longer because it is becoming disruptive and I don’t want it to get dangerous. Unfortunately, I don’t have comprehensive dental coverage and I’ll need to pay the dentist or oral surgeon at any appointments I make, and I just don’t have that kind of funding available. Hence this bleg.
I don’t want to become a bore again, so I will try to avoid discussing my health junk again except to thank people if they can help, but I’ll be linking this post at the end of my regular posts, for a while.
Another week halfway down and another batch of lies from the leftist media. They just make crap up and the snowflakes set their hair on fire and run off to riot “protest” with whatever the “scandal” of the day is, and then the lying media reports on THAT as if it were relevant. Are any normal people even still paying attention to this garbage?
This whole Trump Derangement Syndrome noise machine is, at least for me, finally subsiding into little more than a dull and inchoate roar slowly fading away in the background. Apparently there will be a new TDS hair-on-fire moment every three days or so for the next seven years of Trump’s presidency.
I think that more and more people are simply tuning it out. None of this crap is the sort of end-of-the-world stuff we are being told it is. And as that becomes more and more obvious, it will become easier and easier to ignore.
I suggest ignoring this, as well.
Mike Hendrix has some thoughts about America’s sore losers:
Having been spited and thwarted—some of them for the first time in their lives—by people they hate, despise, and fear, these reasonable, tolerant, freedom-loving folks immediately turned to rioting, looting, smashing, burning, and other acts of random violence. They have repeatedly demonstrated their intention to implement a semi-soft coup and negate the results of a legitimate national election by manufacturing absurd scandals, hogtying Trump himself by any means they can concoct, intimidating and even assaulting Trump supporters and Republican elected officials whenever they get the chance, resisting or defying laws and executive orders, and generally carrying on as if the election had never taken place—more accurately, as if they had won rather than lost.
Sadly, it’s not entirely unreasonable of them to expect this, because Republicans themselves went along with it for years, acting as if they’d lost whenever they managed to win. No wonder they’re completely gobsmacked; against all expectations, they have a guy in the White House who seems to have meant what he said, and is acting on it, and doesn’t seem in the least ashamed of himself for harboring such otherworldly notions. Why, it’s indecent—damned near unprecedented!
They are crazy as shithouse rats; they are used to having things their own way with little to no serious resistance; they are juvenile in both outlook and action; their political leaders enjoy their power and perks, and have no intention of surrendering them even temporarily, to any degree at all, without a fight.
Notice that I haven’t even mentioned what the supposed terrible, awful, no good, rotten, meaniepants, unpresidential thing My Donald is alleged to have done this time, because I am really not paying much attention to all that bullshit these days since it is all just made up by commies and malcontents anyway and has no basis in reality or actual fact – so why bother?
Is anyone else experiencing protest fatigue? I predict the endless protests will succeed in making normal people treat these demonstrations the way people who live near airports treat plane noise: they will eventually be ignored to the point where they won’t even be noticed at all anymore.
Of course the big news is that My Donald finally fired that jackass, James Comey, who had hacksplained to us back on July 5, 2016 that Crooked Hillary is a criminal who committed crimes and that if anyone other than Crooked Hillary had committed similar crimes they’d be in trouble but because this is Crooked Hillary we are talking about nothing was gonna happen. Of course the TDS crowd is in full meltdown over this, as to be expected.
PCP commenter sig94 had this to say, which I find immensely quote-worthy:
Nothing says “You’re an incompetent, corrupt, ass kissing, double crossing, back stabbing, venal, unprincipled, faithless, dishonest, untrustworthy, clownish, two-faced, two-timing, perfidious, deceitful, treacherous political hack,” like a Termination of Employment Notice from the President of the United States.
Mike Huckabee seems to enjoy making snowflakes soil their red diapers nearly as much as Trump does, see my post about it at DaTechGuy’s Blog: The HuckaBadger.
The left really does intend to protest every single friggen day, all over the country, because they apparently have nothing better to do. Here is where you can find a schedule for their idiocy. Today, of course, among the dozens of other things that have them triggered to riot “protest”, block traffic, and make nuisances of themselves, they will be protesting the firing of James Comey. Today’s TDS protest is taking place outside of the White House.
Among the demoncrats who are bitching about My Donald’s firing of the con-Comey is Dick Blumenthal, who you may remember for having lied about serving in Vietnam. Trump calls him out on his stolen valor. Good.
Traffic snarling mobs of commie morons are becoming an every day occurrence, but normal people need to get to where they need to go (like to their jobs), so what is there to do about it when a bunch of losers block the road with their stupidness?
Remember when the #occupy mobs earned the name “occupoopers” by crapping on cop cars and sidewalks? Well their anifa commie comrades remember it fondly and have decided to kick it up a notch by pooping in their hands and throwing their poop at people who they want to deny the right of free speech to. I shit you not!
Gateway Pundit has the scoop.
The left is indeed full of it.
They keep escalating their hostile behavior, claiming they are fighting “hatred”. I suspect those assholes will soon be in for a rude awakening.
Oh, yes, it is time for another TrumpDay post, for the glory of MAGA. Everyone is all a buzz over the big 100 Days in office milestone for our badass POTUS. My Donald will be celebrating on Saturday by rallying with supporters and simultaneously sticking it to the hostile leftist press. Huzzah for multitasking!
Today is First Lady Melania Trump’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Mrs. Trump!
Class vs. Crass (wait for it):
Over at iOTWreport, BigFurHat has a great piece about how the nasty media fell all over themselves to propagandize about the previous FLOTUS but they do everything in their power to ignore the lovely Melania Trump. Read it HERE.
That’s all I can give you for now; I have a toothache that I can’t immediately get fixed because we’re in the middle of getting all our young pets spayed and neutered after just having had to replace our house’s furnace, so I’m not exactly at the top of my game today. Apologies for brevity!
