Debridement

You're Unwanted

I learnt the term ‘debridement’ when I was healing myself and my wounds. Debridement is a medical term which means “surgical removal of foreign matter and dead tissue from a wound“, according to dictionary.com.

 

When a wound is in the process of healing, there are skin that will dry up and became detached from your wound but still hangs on to the other part of your good skin, which is dead skin. I used to think that keeping these skin will cover the open wound up but it doesn’t as it kind of flap about to reveal the open wound. If I apply any medicine or moisturise the wound area, these dead skin takes up moisture or the medicine, hence I need to remove them so my wound can get the moisture and medicine instead. Sometimes these dead skin causes the wound to become infected as it doesn’t even protect the open wound. It’s basically useless.

 

Upon daringly removing those dead skin, dead tissue and dried yellow discharge from my wound, revealing a very raw wound where sometimes I can see the whitish flesh area in my skin, it was then that my wounds especially on my feet started to heal. My feet has been slowly but surely healing and improving, just some parts of my left feet is still not healing that well. I can proudly say that I have removed the second dressing from my right feet for weeks now and it can sustain with primary dressing from my hydrogel medicine.

 

So just like a physical wound on your body, there are matters in your life which might be troubling you and you should debride what or who that is causing it. Get rid of the unwanted in your lives. You’ll be happier that way.

I Don’t Need To Deal With Your Shit

From my post yesterday, you saw how the drink caused me allergies and creates the disgusting sourish sweaty smell after drinking it. I have one of this drink in a different flavour that has been sitting in my fridge because my sister gave it to me during Christmas about 5 years ago and my allergies were more severe that time so I didn’t want to drink it. I have no problems with not having something if I don’t want to, even if it has been in the fridge and staring at me every time I open the fridge, which is everyday and a few times a day.

Only when I want to, I will drink it. It’s because I can drink alcohol after testing, that I was ready to try this cider at that event mentioned in my previous post but it’s definitely not suitable. As for that cider sitting in the fridge, I definitely won’t drink it and giving it back to my sister. After so many years and I’m not even going to look at the expiry, it can be thrown away or whatever that should be done with it, I don’t even give a shit. It causes me allergies and I don’t want it.

 

This shows that I really do have discipline. I realised my discipline is in-built and it comes out when I think I need to be, without me realising. I don’t know why I always think I’m the least disciplined person. I guess it’s when I don’t want to do or don’t like something, or maybe I think I need to have some fun, then I won’t be disciplined. Even my favourite beer, Heineken that I got previously is just sitting there in a carton and I don’t drink it because I want to heal my health first. Then my favourite Rosé champagne is also sitting here in the cupboard, I just keep it and let it age with value. I don’t simply drink it. You can’t force me to do anything that I don’t want and especially if it harms me, it can really fuck off. At this age, I already know that whatever people in the past have forced me to do, I just won’t do it well unless I want to do it. It’s not that path that I want, then I won’t thrive in it.

 

Delayed gratification, I have no problem I can see. However, don’t just buy into this concept blindly because I have seen many opportunities go by, thinking that it’s better to wait but hell no, years go by,  you age and you don’t get anything out of your wait. Like Confucius’ statement that goes something like : “eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy”. Don’t complicate your life. Some matters can wait, some matters don’t delay gratification because you won’t get any enjoyment or benefit after some time.

 

It’s not being stuck up, I just have standards and  I’m better than just accepting shit and nonsense from others. Especially when I can just get rid of people that’s basically useless and irritating or have cause harm to me, without any feelings, I don’t have any problems with not wanting to use or consume anything that will cause me allergies. I’m bringing bitchy back. No, it doesn’t mean I want to bring a female dog or a human woman that’s bitchy back; I am that bitch. I’m not going to accept people giving me shit for no reason or be mistreated and expect me to be understand. I always have that bitchy side to me. I don’t go around being bitchy 24/7 but sometimes that bitchy side needs to be shown to some people so they don’t think they can step all over me just because I can be nice. That being said, I don’t need anymore bitches near me as bitchy and bitchy just don’t go together. Some people just get along well, some just don’t.

 

There are some people that are just so unpleasant to deal with, I would rather not. It’s going to make it futile having to deal with people you can’t get along with, it will make you not like your work or business and that will defeat the purpose of doing what you want to do in the first place. Gotta do the Marie Kondo‘s way of cleaning by having more of what “brings you joy” and getting rid of what don’t. Some say that running a small business, you have to be nice. It’s not true. I came across a few not nice business people who are still doing well in their business. Maybe they have became unpleasant due to protecting their business or maybe they were just born not nice. There are many nice business people as well that I have met. One thing is for sure – they need to speak up and make their stand especially when they/their business is being affected. No time to play pretentious nice. It’s fine being diplomatically straightforward but when some people are just not polite themselves, then don’t expect me to be.

 

I end this post with my Mummy’s healthy rice and dishes. She cooked herbal chicken dish today. The sauce that comes out of steaming the chicken is super sweet and delicious, and definitely healthy. Definitely better than shit.

Waking Up To Mummy’s Homemade Food

My Mummy made wantan mee (translation : ‘mee’ means noodles in Chinese) with chicken soup for lunch (which is my brunch) today. I had 2 big bowls of wantan mee. Yes, I can eat a lot. 

 

 

I love my Mummy’s cooking and she doesn’t cook lunch nowadays. She cooks dinner everyday so it’s a nice treat to get to have her food earlier on in the day. It’s healthy food.

 

Please excuse my voice in the video as I have stuffy nose from a cold for the past few days. I was sleeping for 12 hours (with some break in between) for 2 days. Much needed rest after working hard to finish off and deliver an order for event items customisation last week, then a bit of leisure time last Saturday to blog at the St. Paddy event.

 

If you want to see a bit about the event items I was customising, you can have a look at this link here. It is also Myle Enterprise’s 6th anniversary this month, so happy birthday to my lovely business, Myle Enterprise. If you need any events services, event planning, emcee or blogging about event matters, do keep in touch with me here or at myle@myleenterprise.com.

 

I’m glad in a way that I can catch a cold as it means my body knows when to break down and repair internally instead of just pushing it to my skin. Apparently, skin is the biggest part of our organ that can eliminate toxins from our body. My skin is always inflamed and itchy, so I’m in pain everyday. In a way, I’m always sick. So now if I fall sick like catch a cold, it lets my body repair internally and also it’s making the unwanted toxins out like through phlegm. It’s like being sick for a while then I feel better and no pain rather than to feel pain everyday but have unwanted toxins inside.

 

I mentioned in my previous blog post that I drank alcohol. I made sure I drank a lot of water that night which help to keep me hydrated and my eyes were alright. Usually if I’m dehydrated, it will draw water from my eyes and make it swell or shrunk. With the weather being so hot in Penang (sometimes up to 40 degrees according to the weather report in my phone’s widget), even if I drink a lot of water, I still feel dry. I just drank some rehydration salt and I feel better. I have also started using my body lotion again and I apply my natural oils after I put on my body lotion, so it’s hydration with protection. My skin is looking much better now. Make sure you drink more water especially if you’re in warm countries and keep yourself hydrated.
