TMJ

I went to the dentist this afternoon to have him look at a problem that I have been having with my jaw. Apparently my jaw is stuck in a locked open position which basically makes it painful to talk, or chew. To avoid surgery the doctor is going to put a retainer (splint) in my mouth to help keep my jaw in place. I have no idea how long this will take, or if it will even work but it is cheaper and far less invasive than having my jaw broken and wired shut.
So for now, I will continue to eat soft foods and hope for the best.
