I bit my lip a few days ago.
I bit it hard. It bled.
Now I have a small ulcer on my bottom lip.
This is hardly a big deal. It doesn’t even hurt that much. But, I’ve learnt over the years, that when something like this happens it is like the canary in the coal mine.
Why didn’t the cut in my mouth just heal? That’s what would usually happen.
The ulcer is telling me I’m run down from a few nights of not enough sleep (it has been hot…who am I kidding? I’ve been sitting up watching Parks and Recreation) and a few evening events and no time at home doing nothing over the weekend.
My system is asking me to go a little quiet and go into recovery mode.
Eat vegetables, tidy things up, do the washing, no screens, read a book, early to bed…
With so many exciting things to do I can find this a difficult thing to choose.
The ulcer doesn't lie.
