Sooo I went to #MardiGras since I couldn’t go home for Carnival...and on Sunday night, (right before the big day) I was on #bourbonstreet and water from a canal (drain) splashed in my face. I freaked out, washed my face and moved on.
Fast-forward to 7 am the next morning and I wake up in excruciating pain. My lips are swollen, cracked and missing bits of skin.
So anyway I decide to foot it to urgent care because there is so much traffic and roads near to our Hilton are closed for the parade. Remember this @omgisthattaj ?
So I walk for an hour in pain and horror, cause I look a mess. Then I get to the doctor to be told that a bacteria that breaks down fatty tissue is basically eating my lips ... wtf #louisiana ?
So yeah... I got a ton of antibiotics and could only drink from a straw for like two weeks and had to clean my lips with hydrogen peroxide hourly. But I survived.
Moral of the story ... don’t let street water touch you while you’re out at those parades. Also the turn up was still real busted lips and all. Yay Mardi Gras! 🤣 #crazybuttrue
