Days of Grace

Painful and Unsightly

I have a cold sore on my lips!….aarrrh and aargghh….its painful and unsightly.  The worst part is that its a viral infection, once contracted and after the sore is healed, the virus will  stay dormant.  Whenever there are stress, low resistance and inadequate rest the virus will be activated.

I can’t smile too widely or laugh too heartily or open my mouth wide for a mouthful of food….as the sore will tear, then the pain and bleeding starts.

I am already a very slow eater and now got to take small mouths which slows me even more.  In terms of eating speed….I have always been the last to finish so that doesn’t make any difference except that those eating with me got to wait longer for me to finish!

It will take at least 2 weeks to heal properly.  In the meantime, apply medication, drink lots of water, rest enough and no stress (like its possible at all at any time!).  Sigh!!!….falling sick too. 😦
