Jaw ache

My jaw ache is getting worse. And no it’s not from too much talking! Its stress and not enough sleep. C doesn’t sleep well at the best of times. And I sleep lightly as he has a history of being sick in the night.
The parents next door have gone away and the kids (i say kids but they are in their 20s!) have been partying. 3 nights in a row. Cs room is padded because of head banging so muffles the noise a bit for him. I just grit my teeth!
So even though I feel like a walking zombie, the school summer holidays are coming to an end, so I need to make the most of my time with my son.
Does anyone know any good remedies for jaw ache?

Hi Jenny,
It's me Elaine Waight
Poor you, when do the parents get back?

Remedy for Jaw ache?? Wrap your head in a warm towel and take paracetamol and ear plugs and go and lay down!!

Off to Spain tomorrow , can't wait.

Yeah, must be strange C's last long holiday. But then you will be able to choose , when and how long you have with him, much better really.

Love elaine

Just read your earlier blogs about prostitute idea and poo!

I suppose the man meant well, but i'm sure C is happy to be himself, he doesn't need that kind of interference, but I think prostitues have been used to initiate young men with learning disabilities into the joys of sex before, so not totally off the wall, but I think its ok for men who are clearly showing that they want to find out . I think you were right to assume C just wanted you to stop talking to the bloke!
Keep your Godd Luck penny, you never know when it might come in handy.

See you just had a look at Purplecoo. It's a great friendly place when lots of people around. It came out of a sage with Country Living magazine, we all entered a competition and had to blog as entries, when they shortlisted we were horrified that none of our favourite writers got chosen, so there was uproar and a mass exodus and this new site was created by Westerwitch and Lixtroll up in Scotland with alot of techy help from jackofall in France who is married to LePeuLafouke and it has just grown and grown.
Crystal Jigsaw has an Autistic daughter, who she writes about a lot. When we blog we announce it on the page called announcements and so people know who has done something new to read.

Helllooo and welcome to Purplecoo. So sorry to hear about your jaw ache - is it toothach, or the jaw itself. Hot water bottle . . . that might help.

Thank you!
Definetly the jaw its self!When i am stressed i grind my teeth in mysleep! As well as tense up my shoulders and neck. The dentist did give me some exercises to do but they dont help much!!
