My Face

I went to get some exposed roots covered today (receeding gums, sadly). I had an injection in my upper jaw and my cheek has gone slack. I can't get my lips to close so I can drink anything - I can get it into my mouth but it falls out through the slack side. I've tried smiling in the mirror at work and I am totally lobsided, one side stretches into a smile while the other just sags there. So I'm contemplating going to art class with two fat lips and a saggy cheek. I won't be able to speak to anyone or I'll have to explain why I look so weird.
