Hope on the horizon (in a box in the pantry)
So I'm on the google tonight all, Dear google, please tell me this will go away. And most of the google is like, It'll take a few months to a year, but you'll be fine, but then that sneaky nasty part of the google that is always telling us that our symptoms are fatal is like, This could be permanent so get used to sucking at food.
I didn't mean to be so bleak, bloggonets, because the upshot of this story is actually kind of awesome. So one helpful googlebit was all, If you gargle with baking soda it will speed up the healing process! And I was all, Yerk, that will be gross but I am desperate so I will try. And guys, it was so not gross because (you may recall) I CAN'T TASTE ANYTHING!!!
So that was kind of fun. I feel like this is my new superpower, like I could drink a bottle of sriricha sauce and suffer no harm. I am going to gargle with baking soda until it starts being nasty, because when baking soda tastes nasty then food tastes like food.
