Living with TMJ Syndrome, I’ve got this funny feeling that I alter what I really want to say. Most humans have this to some degree. I’ve got it far worse than anyone I know. It’s painful; my breathing is affected, my whole face hurts, and I feel so embarrassed of the clicking sounds I make when I speak. It’s shaped me into this beast who I really don’t care for. I wear an expensive mouth brace, do a lot of self massage to no avail.
