State of the Blog: That's Just Swell
Jun 6, 2011
On Friday, I filled a prescription for EpiDuo gel. It was supposed to help with my acne, but instead, it caused one of the worst allergic reactions that I have ever had.
On Saturday, I was a little itchy and by Sunday, I woke up unable to open my eyes. My eyes were so swollen that I could neither put in my contacts nor wear my glasses. And since the ability to see the computer screen is a critical part of this endeavor, no blogging was done.
Today, after several Benadryl, I can at least open my eyes well enough to wear my glasses. Hopefully, by tomorrow I’ll stop looking like the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Because if I have to go to work looking like my eyelids got sucked into a pool drain, I will be very unhappy.
Long story short, no posts today. Hopefully, if the swelling continues to go down, there will be posts tomorrow.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a date with a cold compress and a bottle of liquid Benadryl.
