My disfigurement worsens

The blister on my lip has worsened. The skin that was protecting it adhered to a tissue I was using to wipe my mouth and was brutally torn off. This was followed by bleeding and soreness and general irritation, I have described it to some as "horrifying" and "unpleasant."

For several reasons, I have chosen not to illustrate the extent of the injury by way of digital photograph. One, I fear it would be too graphic for those with a weak constitution. Two, the digital camera on my phone is terrible and might not accurately portray the extent of the injury - I am loathe to mislead my readers and my journalistic integrity is paramount. Three, It's more fun if you have to imagine it.
