Surprisingly better, and theories as to why

OK, I have NO logical explanation for this, but just so you know, out of the blue, I felt better again today. Yay! This makes no sense, as I had an important job interview that meant a long drive, stress, and talking for 2 hrs straight. Should have been a really bad day, painwise. Did it hurt? Yeah, of course. It always hurts! But, compared to the last week, so much less.

I do think a positive attitude makes a difference. Yesterday I spent mother's day with my sister and her family and honestly, just getting out of these 4 walls and having fun with the kids was enough to help me feel better. Thinking about the injury never actually goes away...probably never 30 mins goes by that I'm either feeling the pain - or noticing that I'm not feeling the pain.

Looking forward to the day I stop thinking about it all the time! That's why keeping busy is good - busy with productive things that make you happy.

When all else fails, and you are just like WTF, why me, when will it ever end, wah wah wah (cue the violins)... I recommend the ridiculously hilarious LOL Cat videos - look them up on YouTube. One of the few things that can get me laughing out loud in my current condition. I don't know why, I just love those funny captions and cat photos.
Let me know what you think!

Thank you to those of you who have starting contributing to the blog - sorry you are here, but so glad you are, too! All of us folks with this crazy burning tongue thing gotta stick together. You are not alone - it is real - a real pain in the a** is what it is - it is a constant distraction and that fact that it is "invisible" to others sometimes only makes it worse. But there ARE people out here who do understand, and do care.


  1. Great blog - have only just come across it via Kev, but planning to read back over your posts when I have some time.

    Glad to hear you're feeling better today.

  2. Thanks Imogina! You and Kev inspired me. Hope you are doing better as well. I know you just came off one of those mysterious setbacks much like I did.
