So I had my 8th(?) and what will be final mouth-doctor visit today. For the umpteenth time in my life: There’s nothing wrong with you. Go home. My mouth hurts, so he says, because my jaw is a little crooked and I bite my lip accidentally, and now there’s scar tissue there. There’s really nothing I can do about it aside from getting braces or breaking and resetting my jaw (uh huh). He also suggested they could do some crowns/veneers on half my teeth, which would be very very expensive and may or may not solve the problem. And cut down on stress. And maybe I should try acupuncture (seriously!).

And maybe I will, dammit!
