My mouth hurts

My mouth still hurts. The sore is right where my teeth meet in the back.  It has been there for almost a week now and it is really getting me down.  This is the only place where I get Crohn's now.  It was actually the very first place it showed up when I was 14.  Except back then I didn't know what it was.  Just thought they were canker sores.  I read once that that is an early sign of Crohn's disease in children.  Mouth sores.  I remember they used to cover the whole inside of my cheek.  I still remember that pain.

I have a Charlie Brown cartoon taped to my fridge.  It's been there for years.  It shows Charlie Brown lying in bed and he says "Sometimes I lie awake at night and wonder Why me?" Then a voice answers, "It's nothing personal, your name came up."  I try to believe that it is just randomness that gave me this hard life dealing with this disease.  Some days I wonder how much more do I have to go through?  Haven't I been through enough? I sometimes believe there has to be a higher purpose for me.  A better reason than randomness that I was chosen.  But after all this time, I still haven't figured it out yet.  Maybe I never will.....

  1. I hate those mouth sores. I've had them too in the past. They hurt so much. I remember trying to eat and just sobbing with pain. A nurse told me that sodium lauryl sulfate (a foaming agent in most toothpaste) aggravates it. I changed toothpaste and it really made a difference.

  4. Slot machines can be utilized for long intervals without the concern of wearing out. The legs and partitions of these machines are strongly constructed for stability and an excellent rebound for pucks. bet365 Many of the on line casino slot video games are constructed round an action-packed bonus mechanic, and a few have a lock-and-spin characteristic, offering breath-taking pleasure for the users. Additionally, users can go for single, double or vertical screens as per their necessities. Game producers continue to develop new types of machines with attention-grabbing twists on the classic recreation.
