Anyway, I spent the next few days eating lots of pudding and jello and mashed potatoes. I'll be honest, the worst part and pain about it that I felt was this weird ulcer cold sore thing in the back of my throat. I didn't know that was a common side effect after getting your wisdom teeth out, but a few people said they experienced the same thing. I guess it is from keeping your mouth open for so long in the surgery, but lemme tell you, it was the absolute worst thing ever!! It was so painful, like I couldnt' breath without it hurting because of the cold air. I couldn't even drink water for a few days without some serious pain in there. Of all things, I was afraid my teeth would hurt the most, but it was my throat that got all jacked up. After that went away and I got to Charlotte, things were on the up swing. The show was tough, especially Saturday actually, but when Sunday came, I was feeling a lot better and now I feel almost back to normal! I am barely taking any more medicine, and I was actually able to chew on the side of my mouth today (still with softer foods of course) All in all, the experience, was much less scary than I thought it would be and I recovered so quick. And I am serious, I think it is in big part to you guys! All of your stories really gave me a good positive ora and you guys truly helped me through it! Thank you all so much for sharing your experiences! You are all just the best!
