My lip is swollen.

I am on my third icecube today in an attempt to stop it hurting.

It's the top lip, both the left and right side (although the right is worse than the left), like...two reasonably sized lumps. On the bit >M< like the top of the "m" if that makes sense.

It huuuuuuuuuuurts. smiley - wah

I don't know what I did, besides picking at the skin a little. I don't remember it bleeding. smiley - wah

...but you don't see me complaining! smiley - winkeye

Usually if I cut a finger or something, I cover it in toilet tissue, wet it and then clench my hand around it to make a sort of cast. However, swollen lips... I can't think what to do!

Some mad teenager punched me once for no actual reason while I was walking home for college. I honestly can't remember what I did while I had a bust lip, but I think I followed a similar technique of toilet-paper smothering, then waiting to get accustomed to the pain. And ice-cubes do help. As does fast, cold running water, left to run well after the painful part becomes numb...

Normally things in the mouth heal quite quickly. Though I don't know how easy it would have been for Saturnine to keep her top lip inside her bottom one (may have been too painful). So I hope it is feeling a bit better by now and she doesn't chew any of those brushes! smiley - online2long

I'm me. smiley - huh
If you don't know/remember me or my userspace, perhaps looking again will refresh your memory? smiley - rofl

I can't remember wether I first noticed your 'Pleasure, pain and permanence' entry, and followed the links to your space from there, or followed links to your space from other people's conversations and went on to the 'Pleasure, pain and permanence' entry from there. The latter, I suspect.
But either way... yes. Hello! smiley - smiley

So what we have is two puncture marks on Sat's lips (which may or may not be self-inflicted) and now a liking for the red stuff. Depending on how fast she's healing and whether she *has* been able to venture outside during the day... smiley - yikes

smiley - cheers I always thought it was a hat smiley... when I first saw it I wondered wether (and why) the poster was 'throwing their hat into the ring'. Or whatever.
