Cowart's Common Room

ShockedShockedShockedShocked I have had an allergic reaction to a drug I took last night (legal I hasten to add - from the Doctor) first I got an interesting red line along my bottom lip and then it started to swell (the lip not the line - that went) . . . Shocked thankfully not a life threatening condition, but this morning I make Angelina Jolie look positively tight lipped and my face is puffy too and itchy and my lovely new lips don't need lip gloss they are fabulously shiny . . . plus . . . I look FEARSOME . . . so no-one dare mess with me this morning - I don't need a chainsaw . . . I can quell with a LOOK . . . Twisted Evil NHS Botox brilliant Laughing trouble is I keep dribbling my coffee through my rubber lips and very worried that I might do the same with wine - can't waste it . . . Rolling Eyes

Fennie's Avatar Poor, poor you. Not very jolly, even if you are Jolie! Sounds as though another trip to the doc is called for. Meanwhile best stick to the wine!

Westerwitch's Avatar Actually there are no appointments at the Doctors today and they would slot me in as an emergency, but I don't consider myself an emergency, they have put out an alternative drug for me - they are saying they don't think that the drug is the cause of the swelling Shocked I disagree as it started very soon after I took the pill! I have asked for an anti histamine as well.

Jaynebeth's Avatar I assume the diet's going well as I can't hear Buster Bloodvessel singing 'Lip Up Fattie'

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Is that another cute little frog? Hallo. Croak!

Resewnsally's Avatar Oh dear! A similar thing happened to my mother last year, her whole face swelled up. She had to be taken to hospital. Quite scary really! Hope the swelling goes down soon WW. I'll refrain from any cheek as I think being turned into a frog or toad might be the last straw at the moment, though doubtless I deserve it.

Salle de Bain's Avatar How's it going 'Trout Pout'?Very Happy

Sorry...yikes...shouldn't have said that...just trying to bring a little light relief to an 'over inflated' situation...honestly miss!

Feeling rather jealous here being the owner of a pair of woefully thin lips!

Seriously though...that's not nice...keep an eye on that swelling...did they prescribe you anything to relieve it?

Westerwitch's Avatar Anti-histamines and overuse of my wand - well I think that is what they said. . . ooooo lots of frogs . . . trout pout indeed - second person/frog to call me that . . . along with the botox jokes . . . place is just full of frogs . . .Twisted Evil

Twiglet's Avatar Hope things are settling down WW - sounds nasty.

Westerwitch's Avatar Hmmmm still got my Trout Pout . . . And had blisters come up on my chin which burst and have now gone all scabby . . . Thank goodness I am not going out anywhere. Was bad enough going round the village yesterday . . . Actually got oooodles of sympathy at first everywhere I went and then the jokes started . . . suppose it was quite a hoot really

Thank you all for your . . .er. . . . Sympathy . . .

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Think nothing of it rubber lips. That's one way to get noticed. Croak.

Dancing Dog's Avatar Sounds horrendous!!!!! Are you sure you're not an emergency? I hope you are feeling better. Sounds like someone put a spell on you.
