How long until my tongue stops bleeding from lower tray of Clear Correct?

I am on week 2 of tray 1 with Clear Correct. The blood from my tongue fills the bottom tray every work day. (I am a teacher and talk for hours at a time.) Even at home when I talk less I often taste blood.

The dentist has filed this tray,(with little success) and pretty much told me going forward I was on my own with a nail file.

I cut away the excess inside the tray with a cuticle scissor and used 1000 grit wet/dry sandpaper for auto plastic since a nail file didn't help. How long until my tongue stops bleeding? I didn't wear braces as a kid, so I have no idea how this is supposed to go.
