CAN•KER; An Ulcerous Condition or Disease

 

Dreamers, I have a Question for you!

My Question is this-    Ever get that annoying sore on the inside of your mouth that makes it hard to eat or speak?’

…sometimes it rubs on your teeth and stings like crazy?

Well I’m sure to make an educated guess and say that it might have been a canker sore! 

( The definition I got from dictionary.com (above) is a lot scarier sounding than it is!) cankers are actually pretty common from preteens to the end of your 20 somethings.

Now you’re probably Wondering Why I would post information on canker sores, like who am I ? A Doctor ?  Yup just call me Doctor Molly! (sarcasm dreamers). Haha!

But the reason is this dreamers.. I am literally SUFFERING with the amount of cankers I have gotten this week! they are so painful, & it looks like I have a fat lip because they have decided to cluster just under my top lip!

Greaaaat, Molly is strutting the free Botox look these days .. 

Canker#1

 

What is a Canker? & What Does it look like?

A Canker is a round painful sore on the inside (outside is called a cold sore/herpes) of your mouth (cheek, roof, tongue, etc);

White or Grey on the outside of a red sore/cut like spot. It can be a multiple of sizes but there are two conditions of it; Simple and Complex. Simple Cankers are the cankers you get a couple times a year, Complex are the ones that keep coming back for more. Once you have the complex type, apparently you’ll just always get them!

*That sucks, pretty sure I have the complex type*

Canker#2

Causes?

The causes of these canker sores are unclear – but a big one is..

**STRESS STRESS STRESS**

It’s usually the stress balls that will end up getting these lovely sores in their mouths, making them want to become mutes and starve themselves (I know I do with mine!!!) Another few causes are; dental devices (braces, mouth guard, dentures,etc) & citrus foods. Also that one sharp snuggle tooth you got hiding in your mouth could also be a key cause to you sores!

There are also other complex causes such as Crohn’s Disease, and multiple deficiencies ( B-12, iron, zinc and folic acid to name a few).

Some Symptoms?

Some symptoms will include the obvious sores themselves, but also you may have a canker sore if you have a burning/ stinging /painful spot in your mouth (first stages of the canker sore).

Some severe canker ‘attacks’ may include;

  • Fevers
  • Physical Sluggishness (like seriously! I’m experiencing this right now!)
  • Swollen Lymph Nodes

 

WooHoo For Treatments!

I am so happy there are gels and mouth washes out there for Canker sores! They are a pain in the butt, so getting rid of them as fast as possible is ideal.

  1. There is the Classic Salt and Warm water rinse; I suggest doing this 24/7 until it disappears
  2. If you’re a roughy; you could take a q-tip and wet it, then dunk it in pure salt– apply to the canker if you are brave… ouch!
  3. Go to the store and look for a mouth wash you can use (specifically for mouth sores) after you eat or drink, this will clean the canker to help it heal faster! Colgate has a good oral sore product, doesn’t sting too much but still cleans it and feels better afterwards.
  4. Gels, There are gels that you can spot treat your sores, if you know where they are! When applied the gel will coat the sore and protect it from further infection. It stings when applied but as it dries the gel should numb it. I suggest using the oral gel brand, I’ve used it for mine and it works great!

So I Hope you all feel educated enough about Canker Sores! because that’s really all I have..

If you would like more information… As a ‘Doctor’ (NOT REALLY) I suggest Googling it! Be a Googler- expand your horizons!

Take care of you’re Mouths Dreamers!

Busy Bee is No Longer 19!

It’s been too long Dreamers,

I realize I haven’t posted in a while, & I’m Sorry..  all the sudden I got super busy with birthdays, camping and work (exhausted!).

So Let’s Play Catch Up!


Molly is officially 20 years old as of last Sunday!

I feel way more mature now.. so expect some mature posts… who am I kidding?! It was a wonderful birthday! I spent the long weekend camping with my boyfriend, and came home to a disastrous room … that I could have sworn i cleaned before I went camping.. haha! It was a nice surprise! My best friend rearranged my bedroom and then covered it with sticky notes,steamers,balloons and silly string (oh btw I never wanna see silly string ever again in my life!).

Molly'sDoor

I actually do feel older though dreamers, I don’t know what it is but i feel happier- & Satisfied with my life! It’s as though turning 20 made me look back on my life and realize ‘Damn Girl You’ve accomplished exactly what you want, & set yourself up for the future!’ I’m All About the future Miss Molly Briar! I’ve planned ahead and have taken steps towards goals and they’re all coming together!

So Pleased!


ALSO;

I missed a wonderful wednesday, which makes me sad .. 

But I hope you guys celebrated it without me!


The STASH .. 

I don’t think I’ve talked about my stash with you dreamers, but since this post is going in ‘Growing Pains’ I think it’s appropriate!

Dreamers.. I have an addiction

…to collecting and purchasing items for a future home.

It wasn’t always an addiction – I promise you

I received my first blender 3 or 4 years ago for Christmas( & it’s still unopened in it’s original packaging!) , but it wasn’t a frenzy just then, it took years after to catch on.

My parents would buy me “hope chest” items for christmas and my birthday so i could slowly accumulate items for a home i would eventually buy and i’d be set. But as i’m getting older i’m becoming more and more obsessed. I live with my dad; & our basement is basically a storage room for my “Hope chest” which is actually just stacks of plastics totes (filled to the point of them barely closing) filled with un opened kitchen appliances, utensils, plates,paintings,picture frames, shelves – you name it! I have a TV and a Couch down there too.. It’s crazy!

I’m waiting for my dad to push me out the door saying

             ” Don’t come back until you get a storage unit!!”

But i doubt he’ll say that , seeing as he’s feeding the addiction! He bought me my very own green vacuum for my birthday! ( and beverage glasses!) It’s exciting just thinking and picturing what this future home will look like ya know? i can place the items in the room the way I want them places and decorate however I want to! (Molly Style!


Last but not least!

I’m Going on a road trip/ Camping trip Dreamers!

roadtrip

& I’m So FREAKING EXCITED!     – 5 of us girls are going to drive 8 hours in one vehicle to Pancake Bay next weekend! We’re leaving pretty early in the morning (4 am!).. But I’m so excited that i just don’t care!

& I absolutely LOVE car rides… they give you time and privacy to think.

When i say privacy –  I mean… you can look out the window and continuously have conversations with yourself ; make decisions or plan what you want to do this week or 10 years from now! & all anyones gunna think you’re doing is looking out the window watching cars go by .. sneaky right?


P.S.  –  I GOT BANGS. 

One of those random/ spur of the momment occurrences; I was in the position of a free haircut and I took it, Came back with hair hanging over my eyes!

Tell me what you think dreamers, does Molly suite Bangs? 

20 Something!

All the best with your busy bee lives!

XO Molly

So excited to say that…

My Bug is back home & all fixed up!

Today was the first time i’ve drove it since ‘The Bad Day’, It felt fantastic!

We’re taking it slow though.. The Bug and I- I think my car might still be mad at me… (for god knows what!)

I got him into the drive way and cleaned him right up, Wash & Wax included of course

Just a way of saying sorry I guess, I missed him so much! 

So now the bug is cleaned inside and out, waxed and has new air fresheners, Sweet Pea!

Can’t Wait to drive to work tomorrow!

Night Dreamers!

Cactus Child #2 !

Hey Dreamers!

So after thinking it over and asking for others opinions-

Dun Dun DUN DUNNNNN

                                    & the result is ..  Thaddeus Bile!!

You know the clumsy spiky Monster from Monster INC? I think it’s appropriate.. and they both have similarities!

Creative Coffee Compliment

35bf8f0a36006a13066ea8bdf34826acHey Dreamers!

Today I received one of the best compliments from a co-worker! He had told me that I must see the world in a different way, because my brain thinks in a unique way. He said I have a large imagination.  

This compliment was exactly the kind of thing that made me feel good about myself, it felt better than “you have really blue eyes” or “you have a nice smile”. Made my day. 

Creativity is Beautiful. & Imagination is key.

Goodnight Everyone!
