A Thorn in the Flesh

this is how large my canker sore feelsMaybe it's the spicy Akha food. Maybe it's the changing of diets between Akha food, Thai food and American food. Lori thinks that it is stress - and according to she might be on to something. Whatever the cause, I have been struggling with a serious pain in the mouth - Canker Sores.

Not just any Canker Sores. HUGE canker sores. Although not quite as large as the picture might imply, these suckers are really big. I have to load up on the Oragel before I eat any meals and the darn things keep me up all night. I probably get one every six weeks or so, and I've got a king sized one right now (although before you feel too sorry for me you should know, I still eat very spicy food).

In the end, it doesn't matter all that much. I love what I am doing and would not trade it for the world but I wanted to share one of the daily bothers of my life.
