Finally feeling a little more like myself today for the first time in a couple weeks. Ever since I had my wisdom tooth removed I had been on some pain medicine which started hurting my stomach and making my head hurt and making me nauseous, so I had to stop taking that and it took me around five days for the withdrawl symptoms, which were the same as the above, to go away! It was awful. So I had basically been dealing with the pain without the medicine, I'm so glad it wasn't too bad and was bearable. It's getting better, only a little sore now. My head actually feels clear today and my stomach doesn't hurt and I'm no longer nauseous. Thank God! I also finally got back on the elliptical today for a little bit. It's amazing how out of shape you can get so quickly. My body has been craving healthy food too because I had been eating bad the past couple weeks as well. It's crazy how a little tooth removal surgery can screw your whole system and life up. I bought some romaine salad and some tomatoes and green peppers and cucumbers and shredded cheese and this really yummy balsamic vinegarette dressing. I forgot to get some red onions and croutons. I usually use French dressing (Catalina) or ranch, but I love this vinegarette I bought. So far I have eaten four bowls of salad with it in the past two days.

I also talked to my friend David today and he suggested I put my savings money in a savings acct- wow, genius! Lol. I currently keep it in a checking acct. I thought about finding a savings acct a while back but was too lazy. He has two he uses, ETRADE and Emmigrant Direct. ETRADE has a 3.30% interest and Emmigrant 3.00%. I applied online for ETRADE and am going to deposit $3,000 in it tomorrow. I thought about putting some of it in a cd, but he says most reasonable term cd's carry the same interest so I would be better off just putting it in the savings one, plus I can have access to it anytime I want if I need to, but hopefully I won't now since my tooth has been taken care of and my laptop problem solved. Please God don't let me have any car troubles again anytime soon! I want to continue to add to my savings until I get out of school and get a good job, plus I want to have a cushion to fall back on if I can't get a good job right away.

Wow. I'm glad I haven't had problems like that with painkillers before. Painkillers make me feel gooooood. I can see how people get addicted.

Wish I could manage my money better and smarter.

Oh, painkillers make me feel really good too..lol. It's the after affects once I stop taking them and my body got use to them. Plus the prescription he gave me was half hydrocodone and half ibuprophen and I can't take ibuprophen because in the past it caused me to get gastritis, but I didn't notice it had that in it when I got it filled and started taking it.

I'm glad you're starting to feel better. I know how painful getting your wisdom teeth out can be.
