Yup, that’s exactly how I feel right now! If you are here looking for this weeks outfit post, well then I am afraid you will be sadly mistaken. Today I want to talk COLDSORES. If you have never had one, then you may want to leave now, this post probably isn’t for you. Today I am disgusting, or that is the way the second coldsore in as many weeks is making me feel. The world is really testing my patience this last few weeks, and obviously I am pushing myself too hard because I get these stupid coldsores when I am run down.
I used to get them every other week, I don’t get them as often these days as I started taking tablets for them, but when I do get one is a biggen! Most people get them on their lip, but I always get them actually up my nose. Every now and again though I will get one under my nose, taking over my face. They are the bane of my life. I used to get called cornflake nose back in school, I have been ridiculed for them and they make me feel like utter shit. I had a small tingle last night before bed and then I have woken up with a leaky, angry face. It may be the size of a large peanut but it feels like it has taken over my entire face.
I had planned to take outfit photos on my way up to the zoo before my photo booth booking today but quite frankly I do not even want to leave the house with this thing, let alone trying to take nice photos of myself. The first day of the coldsore is always the worst too, it’s angry and raw and not nice at all. Usually I would be beating myself up about not sticking to my usual post schedule but you know what today, I felt it was more important to discuss how I was really feeling. I am sure I am not the only one who suffers pretty badly with these disgusting disease. Ugh I hate them!
I guess I should really be telling y’all that “it’s ok” loads of people get them. “Don’t worry no one will even notice it”. Well sorry screw that, I feel like crap and the last thing I want to be doing is showing it off to the world. But what I will say is, I feel your pain, no one is perfect and you’re not the only one. It’s ok to feel crappy about them. Let’s just wear a balaclava for a few days and start a coldsore club!!
Urgh, someone come and chop of my nose!
Thanks for letting me have a moan!
