I just got off the phone with Cox Cable again. They were supposed to come out Thursday due to the problems with my TV.
But I decided to take the living room equipment back to the store. Just as I already had the one for the bedroom.
I just didn’t have it in me to deal with them and my daughters were coming for lunch. Plus I had to be gone to take and pick up Charlie from acupuncture.
Working In My Area:
Then Friday I called them. But I got a recording that said they were working in my area. And to wait awhile and unplug my modem, etc. That didn’t fix my internet and phone either.
This morning I called again and waited at least 30 minutes because they’re so busy right now. I once again told them my internet goes out constantly. Multiple times per hour. And now my phone is going out too.
I was about to say I’m ready to pull my hair out over this. But I have a shaved head! Kind of forgot that momentarily. There’s nothing to pull out.
Anyway, I now have another appointment with Cox Cable for Tuesday morning. I stressed that I wanted them to social distance and wear a mask.
If this doesn’t work, I guess I will have to go to AT&T. And I had them years ago and hated the service. Maybe they’re better now. I don’t know. But I don’t know one person who uses them so I can’t ask one of their customers.
Yesterday I couldn’t eat on the right side of my mouth. I tried over the counter meds to numb the pain. Anbesol I think it was.
Then this morning when I woke up the bone underneath my right eye brow felt bruised. As well as my right cheek bone area.
I wondered if I’d gotten up with Charlie and fallen and forgot about it. Did I run into a door?
Now I see the pattern. It usually takes me awhile. It’s the trigeminal neuralgia. So I’ve taken my first dose of Gabapentin.
This has been happening more and more. Usually I only have these episodes every few years. Since the first of this year I’ve had it 3 times.
I wonder if stress makes it worse? Age? Does anyone know?
