Quarantine is getting the better of a lot of us. Some of us have been watching way too much television. Others haven’t been getting enough exercise. Maybe you’ve been indulging in a bit too much junk food. We have been doing all of the above, to be frank. It’s okay, though. No one is around to judge you at the moment and you’ve earned the right to blow off a little bit of steam.

Even the rich and famous are not immune to these sorts of issues. Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram recently to showcase the dangers of sour candy addiction. Apparently, she’s been eating enough of the stuff to cause damages to her tongue. We wish that we were kidding but she provided all of the evidence that we need. Hopefully, her tongue gets well soon!

Before you take a look at the tongue problems that she’s been having, we will warn you. This is not for the squeamish. Chrissy issued a similar warning before sharing this on her Instagram Stories and we are grateful for the heads up. “I told you I’m eating so much sour candy that my tongue is falling off, and it is,” Teigen confirms at the start of the video.

“Would you like to look?” she asks. She sticks out her tongue a number of times during the video. It doesn’t take a doctor to notice the discolored patches that have started to collect all over her tongue. So what are the candies that are causing this issue? “I eat sour straws,” Teigen says. “I suck on them, and then after them, I have my Blow Pops,” she continued.

To fully drive the point home, she shows her followers the bits of skin from her tongue that have fallen off onto her hand. As you might have expected, the predicament with her tongue has made it harder for her to enjoy any number of foods. The spicy stuff is too hard on her now. If the food is too hot, she struggles. Her beloved noodles are out of the question as well.

“I’m trying to eat my noodles, but it’s so painful. I don’t know how to eat it. I think I’ll have to put saran wrap on my tongue or something, like a tongue condom of some sort,” says the silly actress. One thing is for sure: this situation is definitely cringe-worthy. You can, in fact, have too much of a good thing.
