I am suffering from a pretty bad cold that started up Friday night. I have a history of long colds that last a week or longer. Problem is I have dental appointments this week that I can't put off. I can't miss them but then I am not sure if they are going to work on my teeth when I can't even breath through my nose. I realize it's out of my hands but I hate complications like this. I really want to get out of this place and go to school on the east coast. I can't do that until my dental issues get taken care of.
