My jaw has not been able to close for over a week. The right side very painful. I can't chew.
So I finally went to the doctor yesterday, and was diagnosed with Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder.
Basically the little disc between my jawbone to my skull is inflamed.
I have to take 600 mg of ibuprofen with every meal. (1800 mg a day!) for the next 2 weeks and eat only "soft foods." Then I go back in for a check-up.
Soft foods?! Over Christmas?! This sucks!!!!!
This is going to be hard because "the old fat me" in my head instantly cheers, "Ice cream is soft! Fudge is soft! Mashed potatoes and gravy are soft!! Stuffing is soft!"
I am a worried about suddenlying binging because something is "soft."
I am keeping my food journal, but I feel like I have walked into a landmine!
Can you think of any healthy, filling soft foods?
