Allow me to bitch about herpesPosted: October 8, 2010
I have herpes ON MY FACE! I blame my mother who I clearly recall sharing glasses of milk with at the age of 4 or less while she had cold sores.
Coldsores aka oral herpes are THE WORST. Actually, genital herpes are probably worse but thank god I don’t really know for sure.
So i have a pretty small cold sore right in the middle of my bottom lip but it fucking kills. It feel like I was punched in the lip and it exploded open and the slightest breeze makes my nerves sizzle in pain.
Things that hurt:
- wearing chapstick
- not wearing chapstick
- drinking when not using a straw
- smacking your lip on your fork
I’m not looking for remedies. I’ve been dealing with this my entire life (THANKS MOM!) so I know what to do/not do. Bitching is the only thing that makes it better.
On this day:
