It may be a little bit worse today than it was yesterday but not much. I've used salt water, hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, much flossing and brushing as painful as it is and the anti-biotic prescribed by the doctor.

Maybe at not getting a lot worse is a step in the right direction.

please understand how little we, as a community, care
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do
