All I have to say is that stabbing yourself in the gums with your toothbrush while brushing your teeth really stinks. I did this. Twice. Two days in a row. And the healing process hurts more than the stabbing. My gums are throbbing and it feels like I have a gaping wound in my mouth, but you can't even see anything. I should at least have a battle wound for all the misery I'm going through!
