My sorority sister got caught up in a bad relationship that ended with her taking a bat to the jaw. Her horrible boyfriend hit her on his way to baseball practice because he saw her talking to her male professor outside of the classroom.
Parts of the tooth became dislodged, and her body started dissolving them. She waited before going to a dentist out of shame for what she had allowed to happen to her. By the time she did go, the pain was so great that even an anesthetic could not deaden it. She had to have excruciating surgery.
