Each of the past three nights I've awakened myself by grinding my teeth so hard during sleep that it hurts. My teeth ache miserably today.
Is there any wonder?
Perhaps this is a residual habit picked up after my recent extractions. I know I was clenching my jaws a great deal during the day for a few weeks back in December.
I woke during a strange dream last night--Cha and I were watching a man suspected of stealing gold bars from a jeweler's. Because he had an enormous golden cane Cha said it didn't make sense that he was stealing them, as he was already obviously rich; I pointed out that every day his cane was longer and heavier.
