i woke up in the middle of the night again to scratch my left leg AND my right ankle. Darn. Left leg was quite raw in the morning. I totally hate washing off the tissue in the morning. And showering in the evening. Totally hate water ~_~
I went out alittle late in the morning, i went to grab biscuits and oreos from the supermarket, my sausage muffin mcd breakfast, then took a bus to my workplace. So i sat on a 2 seater and a lady sat beside me. I was kinda sleepy today, so after looking out the bus window, i closed my eyes for a short nap and placed my plastered fingers on top of my bag. I was kinda surprised to find the lady staring at my fingers afew times when i opened my eyes. To be honest, i had the “wtf are you staring at? …. These are my battle scars, im comfortable all plastered up, like i give a dam even if you stare” . I ignored her and she continued to stare.
When i got ready to alight, she suddenly asked me:
Lady: “miss, the red patches on your hand, are they recent or?”
Me: “No, i had them for a long time since young.”
Lady: “Do you eat chicken? Cos i had some red patches and when i stop eating, they’re gone.” *proceeds to show me her nice and soft skin on arms/elbow which doesnt even have much blemishes!* where are you red patches or even dry skin, lady?!
Me: “Yes i eat. I tried not eating before, its worse” i think at this point, she had a surprised look and didnt know how to answer.
*end of encounter*
I think i blogged about eating chicken before.. I DID quit eating chicken for a period of time and my skin was oozing worse! When i stop eating chicken, i hardly eat other proteins and the shortage probably compounded the problem. My friend jokingly said “the hormones and steroids in chickens probably suppressed/controlled your eczema and made it better” lmao.
Then when i was in office, my coworker asked what happened to my skin. Wtf. To be honest, i was there for afew months already and my fingers were ALWAYS and daily full of bandages, plasters n micropore tapes. Im tired and lazy to explain myself.
Here is a pic of my hands. They arent too bad i think!
Breakfast: mcd sausage muffin
Lunch: salad (chicken with pepper, romaine lettuce, carrot, chickpeas, small cucumbers, roasted sesame dressing)
Others: oreo golden biscuits x3, papaya,
