Jaw & Homicide

I have no idea what I'm doing home on a Friday night. Well, yes I do actually. I've been having some problems with my jaw for the past couple of days. I have TMJ, which has been severe enough for three surgeries so far. In the last, I had a piece of a cadaver implanted in my face. I know - gross!

Now the "good" side is not doing too well. So I'm working on it in all the ways I know how - icing it, heating it, massaging the masseter muscle. It isn't particularly fun. This problem has plagued me for about 15 years, reaching a horrible climax in 1999 and surgery in 2002 put it in the best shape it has been in since it started. I know that this is going to plague me for the rest of my life, but at least right now, it's manageable. It is actually quite debilitating and I even have some arthritis in my jaw.

But something isn't right and I'm doing everything I know how to do before I call my surgeon.

I had a cool thought today!
I want to ride along with the Cleveland Police homicide unit. I think it would be cool - but even more, it might get me off my obsession with studying murder.

I'll see if my uncle, who retired from the unit can get me in. That would be a creepy/weird dream come true for me!!!!
