So I mentioned on Monday that my face swelled up on vacation, remember?
There were several things going on all at once that I was unable to diagnose what exactly had happened.
I ate some almonds Wednesday that made my throat scratchy. I had some shrimp Wednesday and I’ve never been allergic before - but my mom is. I woke up to a red-hot ear in the middle of the night and I had a sunburn on my entire face from zero use of sunscreen my first day of vacation in the pool.
All I knew is that I woke up Thursday morning with fluid underneath my eyes and zero desire to put my contacts in or really do anything all day except sit inside and play on my laptop.
I didn’t leave the condo once that day and here’s why:
Ahh! Scary isn’t she?
This was the worst that it got, and it didn’t help that right above that was my peeling flaky forehead that I took care of with a wet washcloth.
While that was the worst, I found some doppelgängers of the other stages I went through and need your help to vote on which is the better side-by-side.
Was I better as option A: Sid the Sloth from Ice Age?
Or better as option B: This Derp-face Sloth from the Goonies?
Please say Sid!!
Friday morning we noticed some puncture marks on my ear which all point to a bug (spider?) bite and explains the heat I felt on my ear in the middle of the night. It’s all cleared up now and I’m happy I didn’t have anyone to impress on vacation. Not even a mother could love that face (although mine tried to).
Yay for embarrassing internet photos!
