No....I didn't get beat up...although im sure that's what your thinking/hoping. Instead, i was stung by a wasp...here's the pic...im totally relaxed, not 'pouting' or pushing my lip out

You need to carry an epipen for wasp bites . This is a serious reaction . Go to your doctor and request an epipen do not take this reaction lightly . Your lip swelled this time next time your throat may close .

My DH suffered a similar allergic reaction on our last cruise. By the time he got to the ship's infirmary the entire lower part of his face was swollen so much it looked like his skin was going to split. This was treated very urgently by the doctors... Like Moemg says, this is serious business.

ouch! does ice help?
please make sure you tell your buddies and neighbors that you have extreme allergic reactions to bee stings, so they can do the right thing and get you to a hospital pronto if you get stung again.
minutes count if you ever have a full blown anaphylactic (breathing can stop) reaction.
see Anaphylaxis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Just dont get any ideas about coaxing bees to sting you in other places to increase swelling.

If I were you, I'd be more concerned about the blue stuff.

Kinda funny that some people pay big bucks to a plastic surgeon for that look...the lip not the blue face.

If I may, and I mean no offense to TF, I think Goldie is a little bit prettier.

Much less blue stuff on her face too.

Been there, done that, back when I was a beekeeper. The itching is unbearable. It's the only time since puberty that I couldn't even think about sex. Not funny.
