Hamburger Face

Oh, wow, what can I say. I won't admit to being lax. I was going to post about how miserable I have been for the last 2 weeks, but it sounds like a lot of bloggers have had illness also. I started with a cold and bronchitis, began recovery, got the flu, survived that and ended up with hamburger face. I've been hiding out for a week and didn't even go to work. I've always been plagued with fever blisters when I get sick, too much sun or stressed. This is the worst I have had since I was in the 3rd grade. Added to that, there is evidently bacteria that lives in your body that can come out on your skin and start to attack that so my nose looked like raw hamburger. Such a pretty word picture, isn't it? I hope you aren't eating. I went to church last Sunday and people asked me if I fell down. Then on Ash Wednesday they still asked what happened to my face and I thought I looked much better! I'm going to try work tomorrow and see how many people I can gross out.

Oh, I am so sorry. Hope you have a much better week. If it makes you feel any better, the last trip I made to the grocery store, a gentleman about 80 asked me if I went to school with him?????

Quite the mental image you present. I guess a photo's out of the question...? ;-)

I'm glad you've gotten past the worst of it all and are on the mend. I have missed you.

Hope your face clears up soon. I once had what was apparently poison ivy at the base of my nose just above my lip and the ointment the dr. prescribed made my face break out somethin' awful so I can sympathize with how you feel about going out in public! This too shall pass . . .
