I just want to post and commemorate my skin at this very moment. Capture it in time before it is absolutely ravished, and slowly transformed into a inflamed, pustulous mess. I will prepare now for the impending onslaught of insulin related destruction. I will say my farewells with honor, grace, and absolute gratitude for being able to have these moments of semi normal skin. Thank you, skin gods, thank you. I feel like a glutton for allowing myself to consume the glutinious morsels offered out of naivete by friendly individuals who, themselves, possess wonderfully untroubled skin. How could they have guessed? The soft spongy muffins, the double fudge cookies, the heavily breaded chicken strips, mounds of sultry fries doused in malt vinegar, the caramel dripping icecream bars..god help me.
I have recently started eating chia seeds, for there omega 3 content. My skin, in most areas on my face has been in the process of clearing up all of its own accord for about two months. A week ago it was in the clearest state it has been in years. It was a godsend because I had just started a job in customer service. I was so happy. For a few days now I have been aware of a few spots that have been virtually clear, growing inflamed again - specifically the 't' zone. It's not anything outrageous but it's still growing worse and I don't know what has changed except chia seed consumption. Perhaps I am eating too much? Or perhaps I am allergic? Should I discontinue consumption to be on the safe side? Ahh, I am so depressed right now
