I haven’t had a cold sore for about 2 years. I used to get them a lot .If I got upset, rundown or was in the sunshine without lipstick it was almost inevitable.
Unless someone has actually had a cold sore they won’t know that something the size of a small coin seems as big as a football and feels as if it could be visible from space .
That is a slight exaggeration.
It also creeps and throbs, looks disgusting and when finally it dies down a bit then every time you smile it cracks and bleeds.
Also a slight exaggeration.
This time it was probably caused by a bit of stress and getting cold while trying not to use the stove all day.
However as long as I can cover it up with facepowder and lipstick and can’t see it then I can get on.
Covering up things could be a theme in my life……
Today I started on the flowers on my commission .
In the afternoon I finished the 3 latest local scenes by painting the sides and covering them with gloss acrylic medium. Then I hung them with the others.
I had time to begin the next one.
Wine time at last now.
