I don't know why but lately, my fear of losing my teeth and popping my jaw has gotten really bad.
If you didn't know, those are the two fears that I'm actually agonized by every single day.
Lately, almost all of my dreams have been about me losing my teeth or breaking my jaw in a really horrific manner. Like last night, I dreamt that I was yawning and my jaw just broke and I couldn't get it closed. And the other night, I kept clenching my teeth and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't stop myself. My teeth fell out one by one but not before they were worn down to bloody nubs in my gums.
It makes me sick.
Now, even when I'm awake, I have feelings in my mouth as if my teeth are being grinded away slowly. It's so real, I can almost taste the blood and feel the grating of my molars rubbing together.
I'm also more cautious of yawning because I'm afraid that if I open my mouth to wide, my jaw will dislocate.
I hate it...
