Infuriating pain

If you have never had a canker.. you are lucky. I am lucky enough that I get one of these bad boys at least once a month. I'm talking huge gargantuan cankers, always strategically placed in the worst possible places. They are these weird little soars on the inside of your mouth usually due to a cut or abrasion of some sort. They kill me. I literally started crying at work today because the one I have was hurting so bad. Just a disclaimer, I am not a wuss. I deal with pain, I do. I grew up with 4 brothers and a million cousins, mostly boys. I was not allowed to whine and complain often if ever. You whine, you don't play. I learned quickly. Anyway I researched a little about why you get these things. Its annoying that they don't know more about the cause. They just have a huge list of things that may or may not cause them. All I have found that works is to lather on "Kanka," a strange tasting 'numb'er of sorts to ease the pain at least for a few minutes. I mean people get them, i get that. But why do I get them soooo much? It infuriates me that I can't figure it out. This is such a lame post, but I am posting it anyway. Its strange how whiny it is, after I said how non whiny I usually am... ah well

  1. Oh Medu! I feel for you. It is a rare day for me not to have a canker or four, so I totally understand the anguish! They are the worst things in the world. And people who don't get them just don't understand... I hope it heals quickly!! Btw, you should go to bed and not blog in the wee hours of the morning. Crazy girl:)
