How does your shit looks like?

When I'm depressed I poo 5 times a day, liquified stool + pencil thin like stool.

When I'm okay, I poo once a day.

When I'm busy, I constipate.

When I drink enough water and poo, it's loose stool.

Lately I've been incorporating fiber and leafy to my diet and I'm passing sausage like stool! So happy !! Yayyyy!! ^^

So they say your poo poo is an indicator of your health. Here I'm reproducing a diagram which I ninja-ed from Daily Info Graphic.

How to Cure Gangrene Foot

(Gross and Gory Pictures Ahead)

I share this story so that my friends may have a brief idea on how serious gangrene is and that it should be prevented at all costs. It happens a lot in diabetic patients, and I believe many of us or our family members have diabetes.

A friend of mine had recently asked how did my father managed to cure his gangrenous foot. Her mom who had just returned from overseas has infections on both feet. I am no doctor but I think I had enough experience to brief her on what she should do. So here I would like to share remedies on treating gangrenous foot.

Friend's mom's feet after holiday.

This is my dad's foot.

Obviously prevention is better than cure. If you or any of your family member has diabetes, make sure its under control and this can be done by either having a proper diet, regular exercises, oral medication (tablets) or intravenous medication (insulin). And make sure that you have a pair of comfortable shoes when travelling to ensure good blood circulation. Make you sure you wear shoes and not sandals so as to prevent any possible cuts on the feet. Always check on diabetic patients' feet, sometime they don't even aware that they are injured because their senses have been impaired by the disease.

If all fails and the foot has already become gangrenous, then you may try the following, it is by no means exhaustive list and this is only for wet gangrene. I'm not sure about dry gangrene or gas gangrene.
  1. Admit to hospital to seek for professional care and treatment.
  2. The patient has to be mentally strong and never give up. Family's supports and prayers help.
  3. Constantly check on the sugar level, preferably 3 times a day breakfast, lunch, dinner. The doctor told us that any reading above 10 is bad for healing of gangrenous foot. The reading has to be taken 2 hours after food consumption to ensure an accurate reading.
  4. From the sugar reading you will be able to tell whether the diet is right for him/her. Make sure the meal is nutritious. Nutritious meals help in tissue renewal. Gangrene chomps away your cells like Pacman.
  5. Specialised wound dressing! Not just any tom, dick and harry dressing at normal clinic. A proper dressing will contain medication/ointment/gel to absorb the moist in wound so as to prevent further bacteria growth. In my dad's case they used Acquagel or something. There must not be any opening in the dressing, any opening will enable bacteria to invade and attack the wound (this is what happened to my dad's foot).
  6. Further infection after amputation of dad's foot.
  7. Amputation may not completely cure the problem if you don’t know how to care for the foot. Without proper care amputation may further lead to another infection like my dad’s foot (from the picture). This means if not taken care properly amputation will only lead to another amputation until they are left with nothing else to amputate. This is harsh reality of diabetes disease.
  8. Antibiotic helps to prevent further growth of bacteria. Sometimes the antibiotic prescribed may not be the right one to counter the invading bacteria. In my dad’s case they even took a tissue sample for bacteria cultivation analysis in order to determine the type of bacteria. Ascertaining the type of bacteria aids the next course of medical treatment such as prescribing the right antibiotic in combating the gangrene.
  9. Inhaling pure oxygen in hyperbaric chamber may help to cure the condition. Cause of gangrene is lack of oxygen in the thickened blood containing sugar or poor blood circulation. Bacteria feeds on sugar. The higher sugar level in blood the happier bacteria will be. Bacteria too knows how to party. Bacteria's worst enemy is oxygen.
You may google for more information if you are interested in treating gangrenous foot. There are loads of information out there. The ones listed above have been tested and proved to be successful in curing my dad's foot. It took him one year to recover.

Never ever give up and believe that it can be cured.  
Dad's recovered foot.
I pray for your speedy recovery makcik. Please there is no guarantee that everyone can recover from gangrene, I still believe in prevention is better than cure. Prevent this from happening to your loved ones people.

Auntieee

Auntiee auntiee!! I went to Empire today to get my glasslock tupperware. RM 65 for 4 tupperwares (1 1100 ml, 1 750 ml, 2 125 ml) - good deal right. Rushed in, took the bundled tupperware and paid.

Happily walked out from the store and saw another bigger glasslock tupperware priced at RM25 for 2000 ml.

Mehhh why always like that!!! Arghhhh...

It's okay, finally found my red pepper paste for kimchi stew! Yayyyyy!!!


Tupperware for storage of kimchi - check.

Red pepper paste for kimchi stew - check

Sea salt - check

And now am left with red pepper flakes. I guess I can only get it from Korean marts but I couldn't find any in Subang Jaya area.

Poof poof.



Bear is really the stupidest dog on earth. Lol.

He is so cute! Time for beauty sleep. Good night.

Suits

Aaaaaaaaa Suits are so expensive. Damn.

I went to Vincee Tailor this morning, to tailor a set of suit and he charged me RM750. *-*

But am happy because he gave me a free bib.



The bib is worth RM45. Yay..

He took my body stats with the measuring tape and realised I'm totally out of shape.

Refused to accept the fact that I'm out of shape I told my mom, "ah, he measured with my clothes on, of course there will be additional inches."

Hums to myself happily and drove my parents to Sunway Pyramid.

Reality kicks in, I AM OUT OF SHAPE!! Either it is too tight or too loose.

Finally found a pair of suits that I can pull off. The salesperson told me its RM359 per suit. Happily asked for my trousers to be altered and went to the cashier to pay.

"RM459 please."

-.-

Why always like thattt!! Sigh. Buy books like that, buy suits also like that. ;(

I really need to do something about my body shape. I don't want to evolve to auntiehood. I want to look slim and elegant so my boyfriend won't run away from me. Arghhh need to double up my effort at gym.

I am officially depressed. Really depressed. Sigh.

Man of steel

I heard that 'Man of Steel' is out in the cinema.

I was shitting in the toilet when my brother asked from the other side of the door, "Ah Lee want to watch Man of Steel?"

In a very sombre tone I replied "No."

Surprised he repeated his question, "Man of Steeel wor?"

In the same monotonous tone I said again "No." and continued playing Candy Crush.

He continued persuading "Tonight movie 9.45 pm wor."

Again with the manly tone I replied "No."

"Superman wor?"

Damn as if I don't know Man of Steel is superman. Oi whats wrong with my answer!! Lol why he sounded so surprised when I said No!

Poof.

I'm saving my date for someone else la.

Finally I replied "I want to watch with boyfriend."

*silence* and I could hear his fading footstep sound.

Finally he is satisfied with my answer. Lol.

Donkey betul.

Okay time to listen to Chan Fong on 988 and roll on bed.

Teehee bai bai.

War against acne

Oiiiii why always meeee!!

Acne just love me, I have been having acne problem ever since I was 13. People say acne only hits during puberty and teenage years. It's WRONG! A misconception. Adults may also suffer acne problem, just like what I'm facing right now. Poof poof.

I have tried all sorts of remedies, from birth control pills, to antibiotics to Roaccutane to topical creams.

Well, medication works wonder for me. Each time I'm on medication I will have flawless skin.

The most expensive and effective of all, Roaccutane.


Well, I ninja-ed this from the net. Roaccutane is also the most expensive of all, RM200 per box for 30 tablets. Dosage depends on the severity of your acne. Mine was not that serious, so I only pop one pill a day for 6 months in order to achieve flawless skin.

Later I did some research on the internet and found that minority who consumed this accutane will have suicidal thoughts and few had actually committed suicide in the States and the family members of the deceased had filed law suits against Roche, the drug manufacturer. Being the most expensive drug of all means it has the most side effects. If you take accutane while you are pregnant, your baby will be born deformed, without limbs. It causes dryness and your lips and skin will crack. The drug makes you really thirsty and you have to drink lots of water while under this medication.

Due to its many adverse effects, I had decided to stop Roaccutane although it did work for me.

I told my dermatologist that I would prefer a milder version of Roaccutane, one that could help me to achieve flawless skin.

And well he prescribed this..


It's called Borymicin.

"Any side effects doctor?"

"Nahhh, no worries no side effect except for a minority few who experienced headache."

Ahhh okay okay, safe to consume. Roger that. So I paid RM90 for 30 tablets. Am supposed to pop one daily. Paid and left the clinic.

Am an impulsive buyer, easily persuaded. Later at home, I decided to do some research on Borymicin and to my horror its actually an antibiotic and may cause organ failures.

Sigh, actually kind of expected, all sorts of medication is harmful for your body in the long run. I stopped after taking 2 tablets of Borymicin and threw the entire packet away. Waste of my money.

Lastly, if I am desperate I should take birth control pill, it regulates hormone and gives me the flawless rosy skin. And its cheapest of all too! RM48 per box for a month's supply. So what's stopping me? Boyfriend said it will harm your kidney. T.T

Booo, how now?? My skin is breaking out. I'm feeling stressed out whenever I look at my skin. Products don't seem to work on me because I have really sensitive skin.

My next solution for my skin problem is?

THIS!!!


A peeler and knife from Kitchen Store! Lol. I will buy all sorts of fruits and vegetables to eat in the office. Hohohoho.

No more medication. Its time to do a little experiment on my skin. What she likes and what she doesn't. ;)

Never give up. This weekend I will get a bowl and sea salt to soak my fruits and vegetables (to wash off the pesticide).

Teeheee.

And 8 glasses of water per day and enough beauty sleep. Enough of consulting skin specialist, they just rip your money off and prescribe harmful medication. The medication is only a temporary cure, each time I stop the acne comes back. I need to learn how to communicate and listen to my skin.

I believe there is a cure for my skin problem. Wish me luck.

Merry Bak Zhang Day! ;) Good night.
