I woke up this morning and my lips looked like those of Angelina Jolie.
I looked around in case Brad Pitt happened to be here, too.
The swelling was caused by an open wound in my cheek created by protruding wire from my braces. The wire had been causing me problems since Tuesday but I ignored it. I would just eat gum and stick it over the wire. Before I knew it, lookee! Fat lip!
I immediately contacted my dentist to ask if I could visit so that she could cut the wire and maybe check if there was anything else wrong with me. One suspicion we had was that the fat lip was an allergic reaction. Unfortunately, I hadn’t eaten anything allergenic. Thankfully, it was just the wire causing the problems and after cutting it and applying Soragel, I was on the way to mending.
By the time I got home my lips were starting to look normal again. Phew!
