Last month I speculated that diving full out into caregiving for my adorable grandson Miles had distracted me from my discomfort, leading to less medication because there was less pain.
This month continues this good streak of much lower pain levels, less dryness, and the lowest dose I have ever taken of Clonazepam/Klonopin ODT.
I am beginning to suspect a level of remission is at play here, and although I know from previous experience that remissions in Burning Mouth Syndrome can be of varying time lengths and may be quite temporary, I am going to savor each and every day of this one.
It is a pity that it is occurring just as the Covid19 Delta Variant has taken our area back to social distancing and masks, even for fully vaccinated people, but I am getting lots of time with our local family (Look how Miles has grown!!) and my husband and I would be taking these precautions for our little Cystic Fibrosis Warrior, no matter what.
Here’s a weird thing…I haven’t had severe seasonal allergies lately (usually leading to bronchitis or sinusitis) and none of us have had colds or flu. This is awesome, and I am attributing it to wearing my mask on a regular basis. I have always washed my hands during these seasons, but the mask has added a screening level that I never had before and it is working for me.
Keeping you all in prayer and wishing for remissions for everyone.
Stay safe out there.
Enjoy every second of your remission. Hoping it last forever for you.
Thanks so much, Eileen!
