Just Me

Okay, I’m sitting in my local coffee shop again. I had to order a luke warm doubleshot latte, hmm not my favorite (I usually have a long black with a bit of cold milk on the side). But due to me getting my tounge pierced 5 days ago, I have been advised to 1. Steer clear of hot drinks, as it will burn inside the the wound (and do I miss the lovely hot blacks i usually drink. 2. Soft bland food as chewing will aggravate the wound, well I’m finding this a problem. I mostly eat healthy foods with crunch and fibre, that means no nuts no grains and no crispy crunchy veg I am literally starving.

The piercing did not hurt at all, the working up the courage to go hurt my head more (as I have Anxiety and Depression, due to a verbal and physical attack a while ago now, at a previous job by a customer). I walked in on Monday to get it done, I was told the piercer would not be it till Wednesday well that was a bit unsettling. So I made the appointment for Wednesday. I went in for my appointment all ready to go, filled in the consent form askes if I have Diabetes (what difference will Diabetes make to a piercing?) I have had my ears x 3, maddona, nose, eyebrow (I can’t wear these as I work with food) and a nipple done. Not one of the previous piercers ever asked about Diabetes. What the hell is my Diabetes going to do when I get pierced? (the problems are usually due to aftercare) I understand the questions, have you eaten today, are you allergic to metals or antiseptic (but none of the allergy questions were asked).

So I then find out that she might not be able to pierce my tounge,as it is very short (my luck) I have a very tight frenulum (the webbing under the tounge). I am not happy hearing this, she then says “I won’t pierce like others do, even though I could use the money in my till. Well Okay. So I sit down the bed (after using a mouth rinse) and she gets all the gear out, then marks my tounge.  She then puts the clap on, then releasing and re clamping (as i previously stated, I have a very short tounge) then pushes the needle thru my tounge. No pain at all (this makes me so happy).

But the annoying problems after have got me angry with myself, did I google the after problems? NO. I did not realise that I would be sucking on ice, to bring down the swelling of my tounge (my tounge is approximately 2 to 3 times it’s normal size) I’m living on Ibrufen, ice cream and anything mush related. Nothing healthy at all. I am having problems drinking from a cup (as your tounge does more things than I thought). Speaking is also a problem (I also have a enormous gag reflex, so  I gag badly in the morning) I worked on the week end, and I am sure my customers though I  had speach impediment.

So this is a “Uniquley Dee” thing,  Just Dee.

I need to find me

I have just come back to my local coffee shop as I’ve stated before, it’s not flash but the coffee is good. I had to get out of home. I have my husband now working from home, he never pre warned me that this was happening but it has. I also have my 74 year old father living with me, that I cannot take to him is an understatement (long story kept for another time as its a very long long story).

I had to get out. It started witth my husbands phone sitting close to the computer, he gets feedback thru the speakers which is quite loud ( my head is screaming “move your freakin phone”. Then as I get out of the shower he is looking for something, I ask what he is looking for and he says the kitten ( the kitten, Dexter is 18 month old now). I just stand there thinking, why? Why is he looking for Dex?, when he is supposed to be working, why is he not working? My head is hurting at this point, after I had my father stand in the hall saying ” knock knock” I was in my bedroom getting dressed and had my iPhone up loud playing Sam Smith, and I did not want to answer as my husband was in the dining room to answer his question.

The husband was too busy looking for Dex, then sitting in the recliner on the phone speaking so loud I could hear him outside at my car ( my head is screaming,  shut up … SHUT UP … SHUT UP)
