Does my mouth look fat?

So I think the swelling may be totally gone on the outside. On the inside, it still feels like I was attacked by a cheese grater. The bottom of my mouth is much more sore than the top but they both still hurt. I had to break down and take one of my painkillers last night, even though I was terrified it would make me sick again. Luckily everything stayed down and the meds knocked me out. Xodol is some good stuff. Apparently it is very habit forming and the doc gave me 5 refills. Scary. So I am still really sore and my gums are still a little swollen and very raw. The rest of my teeth are aching a bit too - I'm thinking it has something to do with all of the room they have in my mouth now; almost like they are stretching out after being all jammed in together. I'm still popping advil like candy since the pain keeps coming back. It gets really bad at night too, almost like how a cold seems to worsen when the sun goes down. I can't wait to be able to eat normally again; everytime I eat something more solid than applesauce, it makes my mouth very sore. I'm starving!

On a totally random note, how many of you guys have a phobia? If so, you should research it; it makes for some very interesting reading. Here's mine: coulrophobia. You won't catch me at a circus.
