TMJ - I've had trouble with my jaw joint for ages now. It's thought that it may be shifting back and pinching something. Treatment seems to be wearing a night guard (check) and visiting the chiropractor whom does the adjusting in your mouth...right by your gag reflex. It's an retching affair. With all that being as it is, I've decided to live with it. The absolute worse part about it is the "ringing" that is a constant noise. Also annoying is that all the external sounds are muffled and all the internal sounds are amplified. Don't even try eating a potato chip and watch a movie, all you will hear is crunch, crunch, crunch. But there is a silence that I even miss more.
I've have already raised three sons, in what seems like another lifetime ago. During high school, they had their own band. They called themselves "Sound of Silence". Which was ironic because they were a metal/screamo/emo band. I loved every practice session and show that they had. They have all grown into wonderful men and one of them is still playing in a band (Jenova). I just miss the good times we had.
In their honor I have posted a few Indie bands for your consideration:
