“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

My Head is Relaxed ... My Head is Relaxed
Sunday, August 2, 2009

Okay, so if you've read any of my novels with the character Linc Menner you'll correctly guess that Ad Hudler is a little uptight and anxiety-ridden at times. Seriously, I sleep horribly. My dreams usually involve losing something or someone and a deadline that I am always missing (flights, assignments, etc.)

Consequently, I grind the hell out of my teeth at night. Have been doing this for years, and it's really getting bad now. I've tried two different orthotic mouthpieces to help, but they're doing nothing. I wake up with gums INFLAMED because of all the stress put on them.

So ... I'm taking a more natural/mental approach: I'm going to do what my mom always preaches: Think positively. Program yourself. SAY out loud to yourself what you want to happen, and eventually it will. So ... I have these on my desk now:

And if you catch me grinding my teeth during the day, yell at me: STOP THAT, AD!

What you meant to say was: "Stop that, Ad . . . you NEVER grind your teeth!"
Don't give up on this because it WILL work!
