I have decided to give the ulcer growing on the base of my tongue a name. If it is gong to live in me for this long (5 months now) I think we can be on a first name basis. Instead of always referring to it as the growth or the ulcer it now has a name.
Sarracenia - (pronounced "sara seen ya" named after a carnivorous eating plant found in the south eastern states. What an appropriate name for a growth that eats away at the flesh of this Cajun lady.
One day I hope to call it "see ya sarra" as it is eradicated from my tongue and lives in me no more.
