My Life is More Interesting Than Yours

And I'm willing to fight about it

Face Herpes April 29, 2012

So it seems fitting that my first real post is about something nasty and disgusting which I tend to make more nasty and disgusting by calling it what it really is.

Yesterday morning I woke up and felt my lip had swollen.  Cursing the gods of stress and mayhem, I staggered to the bathroom and got a shock.  The cold sore I was expecting.  What I wasn’t expecting was a second one right above it under my nose. 

Cold Sores also known as Herpes labialis is a breakout from a virus that sits permanently inside of you, waiting to strike.  Last year I got it when I was camping, and rather than hide it I just told everyone that I had herpes on my face just to watch them react.  I suspect this says more about me than it does about them.  

But hey, what’s the point of having a nasty virus weeping sore on your face if you can’t enjoy watching other people squirm right?
