I can't talk except for an incoherent mumble at which everyone points and laughs so staying mum is a better option, really.
I can't eat either. Except for tiny amounts of food mashed into huge amounts of raita. Lol.
Its been three days now and YES, I have applied Somo Gel, toothpaste, Glycerin and whatnot but obviously it has to run its course before getting better.
Let me tell you, for a person who is used to being shouted at "KHUDA ke liye 5 min chup ho jao!" this is HELL. HELL. I'm the kind of person who loves to talk. To anyone. About anything. Doesn't have to be meaningful. And this is the ultimate punishment. Having to stay quiet and hungry all the time. I looove food. And I can't have it because I will admit freely, I AM A COWARD WHEN IT COMES TO PAIN and when people expect me to 'bardaasht' the huge amounts of pain I have to handle if/when moving my tongue I want to bash their heads in.
