My roommates poptarts looked so damn good sitting in the refridgerator 2 days ago.  I can't by the fruit and cinnamon I want until tomorrow when the food co-op opens.  I don't even really have that big a taste for the poptarts.  I really want that hot fruit cinnamon pie I was thinking about making.  Oh, well.  Might as well have some fun on my last night of cheating.

Craving for poptarts.  CVS didn't have the kind I wanted.  Had to bike to Walgreens before it closed at 12:00...
Got to Walgreens.  Found the poptarts, yes!  ... Looked over at the milk.  They had almond milk, but I didn't really want the whole jug.  Just want to dip the poptarts and try it out.  Walk towards the counter.  Wait!  They might have a smaller bottle in there!  Too late.  They'll think I'm stealing, and I'm too much of a pussy to face the anxiety of that.  damn.
Wait!  There's a CVS right down the street!  If I hurry and bike there, I can still get there before 12:00!  Yes!  Just in time.  They got milk, but aww!  The only small bottles they have left is vanilla flavored milk.  :(  Fine.  I guess it will have to do.  hmm.  Might as well get a mini $1.00 thing of Lucky Charms So I don't waste any of the milk.  "The store is now closed.  Please bring all items to the checkout."  Oh, they don't have it...  Yes they do!  It's over here by the $1.00 things of cookies!  Ooooo!  They got Keebler elf fudge stripe cookies... mmm...  Naw.  I'm not having any of that tonight.  I don't even have a taste for it.  Walked to the self check out.  Start checking things out.  Damn it, I want those cookies!  It's too late now.  The employees are right here and they will be pissed.
Hop on my bike and ride home thinking about those cookies.  I don't even have a taste for this damn cereal anymore, and barely have a taste for these dry ass poptarts.  Man!  Oh, well.  I don't need to be eating that anyway.  Get home.  Opens poptarts, munching away.  Man, these aren't getting me nearly as high as I thought they would.  They're not potent at all.  Sips milk.  Eww!  Vanilla is overpowering.  Guess I'll take a bit of my roommate's milk for the cereal.  Oh, that's right.  Cow's milk gives me nasty cysts on the front of my cheeks!  Damn.  Well my roommate's will just have to do.  Man, I can't enjoy this cereal.  The risk outweighs the pleasure.  Oh well, I'd better hurry n finish so I can knock it out of the way.  Ahh.  That was Okay.  Not as good as I expected, though.  Back to the poptarts.  Man, these are not getting me high at all.  The blueberries got me higher than this.  Spits out the last of the poptarts after chewing.

I'm gonna go eat some blueberries now.

Cheating is okay
What works best for me is to confront the food, take it in, and say "no."  "No.  I'm not gonna eat you."  Anything.  "I don't need you.  Yeah you look good, but you aren't always as good as you look.  And I don't need you, anyway. " "Yeah it's hard, but hey, it's not supposed to be easy."
Then when I walk away, I feel so much better.

Know what foods get you the worst.
I know that a single Lunds doughnut can give me a cyst near my ear that will last a month and a half.
I know cow's milk gives me ugly cysts on the front of my cheeks that are hard to get rid of.

I know eating a full pound cake from Lunds barely causes any acne. 
I know a whole 13 ct pack of cookies don't do too much damage at all.

I just got finished eating 75% of a homemade peach cobler.  It was very good, and I didn't eat the whole thing in one sitting for once!                Drake:  "I'm so- I'm so- I'm so- I'm so- I'm so proud of you."  Remember that craving for the Keebler elf fudge stripe cookies?  Well I passed them at the store, and the big pack was on sale for $1.99.  Damn.  Well I just finished eating them, and let me say they didn't have shit on the peach cobbler.  Dipping them my roommate's milk didn't even help.  I guess they were $1.99 because they were about to go bad?  Aww well.  Throwing the rest away.  Probably just going to stick to healthy homemade fruit tuff from now on.

Also saw at the food co-op a jumbo pack of organic blueberries for $5.99!  Awesome!  It looks almost 3X the size of the smaller $3.99 container, but I'll check the measurements later.

Nose Bump Scar Cures & Treatments

29 April 2015 - 01:40 AM

My nose bump is not painful, and soft to the touch.  It formed after a cyst was there.  It's been here for 8 months total, and 5 months without me damaging it.  There was another one last year that disappeared after 4-6 months on its own. 

So here's some solutions that I've found:

Home Remedies
Rubbing Alcohol (CAUTION)
Tea Tree Oil
Witch Hazel


Things Doc can do
Shaving
Cauterizing
Various laser treatments

"Homemade" methods (Caution):
Burning with sun and magnifying glass
Burning with lighter and copper wire

World's Worst Everyday Acne Inducing Products

18 April 2015 - 09:48 PM

I was reading researching some of the most murderous, hideous, and horrible things big companies have been doing to protect their money.  I just had to create this topic.  Feel free to add anything you like.

 

4/22/2015

Disclaimer:  I'm not telling you to avoid these products altogether.  I do, however, encourage you to change brands if you see a brand is corrupt that you use.

Changes to the posts will be assisted by dates.

Coca~Cola

Growing up in Atlanta, my diet was awful.  A year and a half before my acne appeared, I drank 2-6 coca colas everyday for 6 months straight.  I have suspected this to be a huge step in my road to cystic acne.

 

Blood

Coca Cola has workers in Columbia.  They violate their rights, and literally kill anyone who tries to organize anything to get them back.  Every candidate chosen by the people to lead has been killed to date.

 

Coca Cola also puts phosphoric acid in their cokes, and that causes damage to the stomach and intestinal lining.  The phosphorous acid also upsets the balance of alkaline-acid in the kidneys, and dissolves bones.  While drinking it, my bones felt creaky and terrible, and it often burned very badly when I peed.  It was painful enough to the point where I almost cried.   So, you can see why Coca Cola was a huge step in the development of my, and many other's cystic acne.   

 

Coca Cola not only took a lot from its consumers, but it also takes the lives of their workers and consumers.  And the workers that aren't dead are suffering.

 

Will come complete with pictures soon, guys.

New Cheese Good For Acne From Heidi Ho?

12 April 2015 - 11:46 PM

This new cheese I saw on Shark Tank called Heidi Ho Cheese (Organic).  This is very special cheese.  It actually tastes super good (just watch the episode, they couldn't stop eating it), and it's vegan, which means dairy free!  This is special because usually vegan cheese tastes like crap from what I've heard.

 

They have multiple flavors, too:

Creamy Chia Cheese;  Spicy! Chia Cheese;  Smoky Chia Cheese;  Ne Chèvre - Pure;  Ne Chèvre - Black Lava;  Ne Chèvre - Blueberry

Go to the link below and you can look at all the flavors

 

Based on the ingredients, it looks like the first three are safest for me to try, though I may eventually try them all.   In the meantime, I was hoping someone could give insight on it for these fellow acne sufferers, or even do a trial yourselves and let everyone know how it goes.

3 Foods Journey

08 March 2015 - 05:20 PM

Changed "The Truth" to a journey, since I'm discontinuing it.


Summary
Basically, I had cystic acne, but finally cleared my skin by eating only eggs and oatmeal for like 2 weeks after getting results back from a skin prick test. Here are those results:

 

 


Now, these results weren't very accurate and didn't test for enough foods. But oats and carrots and wheat were spot on.

Mediator Release Test
Now, I didn't get it yet! I'm saving money so I can order it from Florida for $495 U.S. I have, however, found foods I don't react to. And the rules for the MRT test state and avoidance of bad foods for 3 months eliminates the moderate level intolerance foods, and 6 months eliminates the majorly reactive foods.

There are some topics about the mediator release test on acne.org. Just search it if you want to.
 


3 months: moderate food intolerances should disappear
6 months: Major food intolerances should disappear

Before Mediator Release Test diet
March 31, 2015
April 1, 2015
day 1:
I am eating only wheat, carrots, oats, and apples. (Water is the drink)

Have small cystic acne on temples that I think I got from cabbage.  Waiting for that to clear so I will be mostly clear.  I also have a stupid bump/scar on my nose that started out as a cyst in August 2014, but has been this bump/scar since December 2014.  If anyone knows anything about nose scars/bumps, please share.

day 2:
Ate my last apple in the fridge today.  Got a beginner pimple on my left cheek near my eye.  Apples are known to cause acne on my cheeks, but usually nothing too serious.  I'm debating kicking apples out, now.  Might try a replacement...

day 3:
Taking out Apples.  When I woke up, the pimple from that apple had deflated.  But a scab came off near my mouth, so now I have a medium sized pink pigmentation near my mouth (I know, fuckin disgusting).  Might have work monday, and don't wanna see my family on easter, anyway, so it might look better by then.
My temple acne is almost gone on both sides.  Just one scab on each side.  Hopefully those won't give me any grief next week.
Wheat, Carrots, and Oats only for right now.

 

day 4:

Woke up, pooped, and saw pellets.  I've been suffering from chronic constipation, but eating better has made my poops better.  Well, since switching to this 3 food diet, my poop has come out in pellets which is a sign of constipation.  This definitely isn't good for me, but it's clearing my skin so I'll hold out until I get this test.  I think if I eat more oats, my poop will be better.

 

Try to fix this with ctr+shit+8!

 

day 5:

Feeling like my instestines are getting scraped to shreds.  TreatAcne put a link in her comment on here where I found out grains have defensive chemicals that cause holes in the intestines.  I am realizing that this diet may be more detrimental to my goal than I thought. 

I've sheilded myself in my room because of these scars.  This caused me to over eat, which is bad.  I'mma replace some meals by snacking on carrots and homemade carrot sauce.  Thanks TreatAcne and alternitivista.  -
