On the photo bucket link it states under your comments that you had surgery on your nose and nostrils. Did you get the surgery prior to your lip ailment? You seem to be very peculiar about your appearance which makes me wonder about the severity of your EC. But I'm not questioning your honesty I just wonder if you had the condition to the same extent that we have. Still, having any lip condition no matter how severe for 20yrs must have been devastating.
