Please go away

Thanks to an ulcer in my mouth, I can't really blog today. What's that got to do with blogging, you may say?

When you have a big painful ulcer under the tongue, you can't talk properly. You lose your appetite. It hurts to swallow your saliva. It hurts more when you're drinking hot coffee. Even the yummiest food will not make you salivate. You're feeling out of sorts. You may even feel a little feverish. Somehow you don't feel very attractive or creative. You can't think properly.

Friends have been offering all kinds of suggestions... drink lots of water, gargle with salt water or apply salt to the wound... Ouch!! No way! My best friend swears by an Oral B solution for gums and ulcers. CH offered his Bonjela. Some people say applying butter helps too...

Oh, how I hate having ulcers. I wish it'll go away when I get out of bed tomorrow. I have a dinner date ...

You're so clever! It's slightly better now. I must drink more water now so that I'll be ready to go eat those spicy food when you're here!

i have a hereditary problem with ulcers in the mouth and what helps me is 'Somogel' its a local gel that numbs the mouth. Hope you feel better coz I know how much a mouth ulcer hurts.

Thanks Random magus! I grew up with ulcers in my mouth all the time too. Good thing they don't occur so much now. So there is some hope for you too. BTW, your college stuff blog is something! good work!
