Um for some reason tumblr reset the notes on my disney swimwear post??? Last I checked it was at about 16k but now it’s showing up with around 269….? UUUUUH

As my last post would suggest, work today was FUN. Had an asthma attack in the middle of my shift and couldn’t leave because there was only one other person in the store since everyone else called out…. I would rather not have to do that again ever.

UM. What happened on my blog this morning??? O_____O

dragonemperor18 said: You're underweight? Why is that bad per se (sorry, I don't truly understand why nor your situation).
  • If you are underweight, you are more likely to be lacking vital nutrients that your body needs to grow and work properly. Calcium, for example, is important for the maintenance of strong and healthy bones. Being underweight increases the risk of osteoporosis (fragile bone disease) later in life.
  • If your body doesn’t have enough fat and nutrient stores, you might feel weak. This lack of energy may make it difficult to get through day-to-day tasks at work, home or school. Lack of energy is likely due to a lack of iron in your blood, a nutrient that helps prevent anemia. If you’re not consuming enough iron, you may develop anaemia (a lack of red blood cells), which leaves you feeling drained and tired.
  • Your immune system is not 100% when you’re underweight, making you more likely to catch a cold, the flu or other infections.
  • For women, you may have interrupted periods and find it difficult to become pregnant. Women who are underweight can find that their periods stop. This increases the risk of problems with fertility.
  • As women age, skinnier women are more apt to experiencing pneumonia, bronchitis and asthma. Researchers also say that skinny women have difficulty with “growth-factor” hormones. It makes it difficult to sustain the health of the tissues within their lungs.
  • The Mayo Clinic did a study, and found that thin or slightly underweight people have a more difficult time dealing with arthritis. When arthritis occurs, it triples the chances of it causing further inflammation throughout the body.
  • A study examined the genetics of 75,000 people. They found that people with IRS1, the skinny gene, are more likely to have high levels of fats in their blood. This increases the chances of heart disease. Researchers warn, “Fat stored internally is worse for you than fat stored under the skin.”
  • Individuals with IRS1 are not only in a high-risk group for heart disease, but their chances of getting type 2 diabetes increases by 20%. Researchers say that underweight men are most susceptible to this.
  • The Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden studied data on 6000 women. They found that when the Swedish women were heavier at a younger age, they were less likely to have breast cancer tumors when they become menopausal. However, being overweight later in life increases the risk of breast cancer and of dying from it.
  • A study in Sweden found that skinny or underweight persons are more likely to commit suicide. Those that are underweight are at a 12% higher risk. Those that are overweight experience a 12% decline in risk for suicide.

gdi I lost weight again and am back down to underweight… OTL

Milestone today. Found my first silver hair… XD

that awkward moment you realize it’s been over 24 hours since you’ve eaten a meal…. @______@ brb gonna grab a giant cheeseburger or some shit.

Anonymous said: I have something similar, but instead of sweat glands, it's my salivary glands. My mouth is pretty much always filled with spit, and it makes it hard to speak for extended periods without sounding like I'm gargling, and anything I can take to decrease it ends up drying my entire mouth, throat, and sinuses out too much. My tap is either off, or full blast :/

I’m sorry to hear that, Anon. :( But apparently the Robinul stuff I take can also be used for the issue you described, if you haven’t already tried it? If you have and it doesn’t work, then I hope you eventually find something that works. :<


Anonymous said: Is there a name for the sweat condition? Just curious - not trying to apply labels. I'm glad you found something that works! Maybe there will be something even better in the next few years.

There is, but it’s long and I don’t know it…. xD Like, the doctor came in and was like, “looks like you have blah blah blah of the blah blah and blah” and it was all big words so I just kinda stared at him all @_____@  if that’s what the kids are calling it these days, yes. LOL

Anonymous said: Hi! I have the same sweating problem as you ahgugh it sucks! My parents won't let me get any prescription things for my sweating because they think that it'll just go away BUT IT HASN'T so I just end up wearing hoodies all the time. I got really nervous during my first con because I was so self conscious about it ;~; Hopefully I can get botox shots or something ahhhh How long does it hurt?

It honestly doesn’t hurt so bad! Like, they’re only little pricks here and there. As long as you don’t exert yourself after(I drove home and there are lots of turns, so it made it a bit more sore) you’ll only be a little tender for a few hours, but no actual pain-pain. lol

One of the things we did before deciding on the botox was put me on a prescription for Robinul, which also helps prevent the sweating. I still take this along with the botox since I really sweat a whole lot. :’D ahaha

But yeah, I was the same as you… I would always just end up wearing baggier clothes and more layers which would just make me sweat MORE. Dx it was a horrible cycle. Even in the winter when I was shivering and cold I’d still be sweating. LOL WHICH WOULD MAKE ME EVEN MORE COLD. I DON’T UNDERSTAND BODY, WHY?? XD

So I would suggest talking to your doctor about your options. This is technically a cosmetic issue and I was referred to a dermatologist, so it likely wont be your normal doctor if you have one. I wish you luck, though! I know how self conscious it can make you. :(

Anonymous said: 20 shots? Why?! D:

Botox into my sweat glands… because I am a gross sweaty person… OTL

No one else in my family has this problem but me and it’s really upsetting. I’ve tried every prescription deodorant under the sun and nothing has worked(and those that did stopped working after a few weeks of use).

From first hitting puberty until just last year, it affected my life greatly. I couldn’t wear any light colored shirts in fear of sweating through them in public, and the amount of money spent on new clothes due to them getting wrecked from the sweat was just jhgjhgj it is seriously my biggest insecurity.

It would also cause things like fungal infections WHICH ARE GROSS, DO NOT WANT.

There’s lots more but I don’t want to get too into it. xD But basically, the shots are uncomfortable, but they prevent the excessive sweating for 6-9 months and it’s amaaaazing. Got it done for the first time after AX and I wish I had discovered it sooner because hooooly shit it makes a huge difference and I’M SO HAPPY. BUT MY ARMPITS HURT NOW. LOL

TIL I’m good at Lazer Tag. xD Red Team(my team) only had 5 people against Blue Team with 16… we only lost 3200 to 3600, with 4 of the top 5 scores in Red Team. I took 2nd place. :D
