My Face Has Turned Against Me

This post from just the other day? Was apparently just the beginning. The guiding light on the end of my nose has greatly diminished and is no longer glowing red. It however seems to have relocated to the side of my nose. That area where your nose gently slopes down and becomes your cheek? Well that area is now a swollen mound and no longer a gentle slope. If this continues it will grow in such mass as to interfere with my vision! Scoff not! It pains me to tell you that I had that experience before. Just on the right side of my face instead of the left. I could not go to work because I COULD NOT see out of my right eye due to the SWELLING. Yes. You are reading that correctly.

I stayed home from work due to a colossal sized BLEMISH.

I steamed my face using a tea pot and a wash cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol.

Lesson learned there? Rubbing alcohol in steam form makes you gag and your eyes water. Not the best idea, but it did seem to work. By the next day it had shrank to the point where I felt I could return to work. Of course I still wished I could wear a bag over my head to cover the hideous thing, but none the less I braved on.

I cannot afford to miss work again due a blemish of mammoth size. I have waaaaaay too much work to do.

As is so clearly evident from the fact that I am composing this post.

Anyhoodle, WTF blemish??? WTF FACE?!?!?!!?!? Why the wage of blemish war against me???

Seriously, W.T.F.???????????????

well if it makes you feel better i have the BIGGEST zit INSIDE my nose right now. it's been there for well over a week and when i thought it was gone... it's evil twin showed up. seriously probably the most painful thing ever. but i don't know which is worse... a zit that can be seen by the world or one that's just torturing you from the inside.

OMG. I feel your pain, literally. I had one of those years ago. Grossness to come, be warned, but I finally had to pop it in order make the pain go away!! That was an ordeal in and of itself.

That's my face's favorite place to break out, too! Right where my nose meets my cheek! I feel your pain, girl! Hope it shrinks to a respectable size (or disappears!) soon!
