Editor's note: The EthnoBlog's got more dispatches today from the youth community, as they share their experiences and opinions on health care through YO!'s Blog-a-Thon.  This author, Donny Lumpkins, is a semi-regular blogger for YO!.

My jaw hurts and I’m not sure if it’s my tooth or my jaw it self. It hurts to eat, it hurts to talk, laugh, drink, anything that involves using my mouth creates this sharp pain on the left side of my face. But I also sometimes talk to a lady I’ve never met, she’s young and sweet and I think we might have been married in another life. Sometimes I get sad and miss her. Sometimes I get depressed and don’t want to leave my bed for weeks.
