Work It Out

The following is from a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

Overcoming Fear

From a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

I have always ground my teeth since childhood. Called Bruxism, especially at night. Last three years it has been out of control even with medicine. I use a night guard, and got caps. Now caps are chipping and abscessing.
