The Bully

Ever had a cold sore? I have. In fact, I have one right now. And it's not just a little one in the corner of my mouth like I normally get, it's a humoungous nasty looking one right in the middle of my upper lip. I hate it. Nothing like a coldsore to get you when you're down. They call them opportunistic pathogens...I think. When you're sick or stressed, and therefore not too happy, they come along to help you feel even worse. Kick you when you're down. Curse the coldsore bully!

it seems that some people are more prone to cold sores than others- my mom always says that whenever a bad cold is going around, she doesn't get the cold- she gets a cold sore instead! But it sounds like you have the double blessing of the cold and the sore. Hope you get better soon.
