Goooooood morning! What are you smiling about today? 💜
I’ve been struggling with a reaction of some kind with my lips for 6 days now. My lips had tiny clear bumps that burned, then my lips peeled and burned, and now have been pretty raw for a couple days. I keep waking up with swollen lips(kind of Angelina Jolie like) and the swelling goes down to not that noticeable as the day goes on. I’ve had this issue for 3 years or so and sometimes my eyes swell up too! 😫 Can’t figure out if it’s weird allergies or something to do with my chronic illness.
So, I haven’t been able to wear lipstick or anything else besides Carmex which has been helping to soothe my burning lips. I tried allergy medicine and that’s helped with the itching sensation but nothing else. It’s very frustrating to have symptoms that you don’t know where they’re coming from or how to fix it. However! I’m smiling. I felt pretty and I felt like capturing this moment. Life is full of moments and I’m working on capturing the good ones even if they’re few and far between. I want to be more positive and process my emotions in a healthier way. I always have something to be grateful and thankful for. This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it! God is with me, how can I fall? Sometimes you just have to encourage yourself.
