Kanker sores

My favorite thing in the whole wide world—kanker sores! And I get them quite frequently, too. I think a lot of it is tied into my stressful nature (oh, to be rid of that side of me!). And a lot of it is tied into my Hooveritis. (What, you say? Hooveritis? Yes, it's a phrase coined by my friend, Heather, to describe all the health crap I've endured for the last year and a half. That's a story for another day.) 

Anyhow, I get them all the time, and when I do, it's always 2–3 of them at once, and always always always in the best spots. Like in front of my upper and lower front teeth, or right near my lip. They are an absolute blast to deal with, too. Not just because it sucks when I try eating food—ANY food, mind you—but also because they seem connected to my immune system. So when I'm suffering from a bad outbreak (which seems to happen every 3-4 weeks) I can feel my lymph nodes swell, and my left tonsil always starts throbbing steadily for days. And the darn things last for a good week or two. I just got rid of two nasty kanker sores a few days ago, and already I have another one!

I think I'm going to go find a nice big bag of super-salty chips now....
