My body really isn’t in all that much pain. My knees are sucky, as usual, but in reality I’ve got it good right now. My sister, on the other hand, doesn’t so much.
One of the things that many people don’t remember is that teeth are bones. Many people with Still’s end up having poor dental health. Sadly, if someone doesn’t have dental insurance, the quality of their dental health goes down even further.
My sister is on day five of having an ear/sinus infection. Normally, this wouldn’t be so bad. However, since she has poor teeth, this has led to some… interesting problems. For the past five days, she’s been in excruciating pain. Not fun.
There’s really not a lot one can do, aside from taking care of one’s mouth and visiting the dentist regularly. Unfortunately, my family fails to do either. *le sigh*
