Am so sick of being the butt of the office jokes
Not sure why this happens to me but my face turns bright red for no reason. If I blush normally it suddenly becomes about 20 times worse and sometimes I go so red my cheeks are almost purple tinged. If I have an alcoholic drink it makes it worse too.
I hate it, its a curse which makes me wonder if its related to lupus (even though I don't have a diagnosis yet).
I have the most horrible rash brought on by my high photosensitivity and it makes me look like I have the plague but the redness is worse.
All my co-workers laugh about it and sometimes I do too but after a while it just.... well, there's only so many times you can hear someone tell you that 'you look like a tomato with teeth'.
Oh really? You think I can't tell that already by the burning sensation on my face? Grrrrr.. its just so insensitive and I'm not even sure they realise that!
My other current problem is headaches. They get so bad I can't think straight or walk properly.. I can't function and have to call in help to look after the kids and go lie down with a cold strip on my head. The doctor gave me meds to help with migraines but they only made it worse.
In the past week I've had one day which was headache free, I can feel one starting now too!
Does anyone else suffer from headaches like that or from the red face problem?
