Thanks, I am too. It has really been brutal. It doesn't seem like something that could be such a problem, but it's awful. I've heard women with children compare the pain of dry socket to the pain of child birth on more than one occasion.

They are. After the first few days of real agony it started to let up, but it's been this almost constant ache ever since. It's like having an eight-day-long headache. I've been keeping them very clean - I don't want any more problems. I really just want to be done with it.
