I'd Like To Repeatedly Bite My Tongue Until It Looks Like It's Been Run Over By A Cheese Grater. Thankyouverymuch.

I feel::like I could go back to bed and be Rip Van Winklet

Here's another life clue that I learned the hard way yesterday:

When you've taken so much Klonopin and Migraine medicine that you can't walk without holding onto the wall and you feel like you're moving through water-don't sneeze.

I had a sneezing fit last night (allergies) while laying in bed and bit a couple of chunks out of my tongue. I could taste the blood, but at the time, I didn't really care. This mornining, however, all of the Klonopin and Migraine medicine having gone through my system, I realize how swollen my tongue is and now every time I sneeze, I bite it inadvertently again, which causes so much pain that it forces me to invent new and more obscene curse words. It usually goes something like this: *sneeze and bite tongue* "Futhing Song of a Bith! God-dammit! (that one I have no problem with)". I'm having trouble making the "sh" and "tch" sounds due to the fact that every time I sneeze, I bite both sides of my tongue.

The next time I say I want my tongue pierced, the person nearest to me has my permission to bitch slap me.

Tounge wounds are the worst! It won't get better unless you literally hold your tounge.

Great Blog...the Klonopin Pez Dispenser is what got me!

I was trying to talk to my friend on the phone yesterday and I sounded like I did in junior high when I had first gotten my retainer. She kept saying, "What the hell are you talking about?" So, I had to talk really slowly and carefully so she could understand me. Thankfully, I haven't bitten my tongue anymore since that day, but that one day I think I bit it repeatedly like 8 times; every time I sneezed. My allergies were attacking me.

Thanks for the compliment on my blog. I really appreciate it. The reason I thought of the Klonopin Pez Dispenser is because I always carry my Klonopin around with my in my purse or bookbag (depending on whether I'm going to class or not). I have Panic Disorder so there's no telling when I'll freak out. I thought it would make it easier for a person in the middle of a panic attack to take one (or three) with a Pez-type dispenser since you could just pop them into your mouth rather than trying to pry open the adult-proof lid of the medicine bottle and shake out the appropriate number of pills. I don't know about anyone else, but when I'm in the middle of a panic attack, the last thing I want to do is attempt fine motor skills.

Well...it's funny now. Now that my tongue isn't swollen anymore and I can talk without a pronounced watery lisp.
