Well, it was pretty neat for about 24 hrs. as the lines between my eyes were smoothed out. The 2nd day when I got up, my eyelid felt a little funny. I was having breakfast with my daughter and she noticed it looked a little strange. I didn't think much about it then. By that evening when I went out with my husband, my eye lid was drooping even more. Each day getting droopier. But the 4th day, it wouldn't open anymore - I had no control over it.

I was devastated and called the doctor who claimed he didn't know why. I was prescribed a medicine that is used for patients with glaucoma. (One of the side effects is that the eye's open wide) Well, it didn't work for me. I had to go to work every day but couldn't hold my eye open. So I devised a plan to tape my eye open with flesh colored tape like you would get in a doctor's office. I did this every morning for about 3 months. It was awful!

I lied to people about what happened to my eye. I was too embarrased to tell them I had Botox injections. But now I tell my story whenever I hear that someone is thinking about getting it. Can you say NIGHTMARE!!!!!
