I was so gung-ho in my last post about regularly posting, it’s great to see that energy, and now to apply it to something else which came up right after I started that path of elimination, and also something else which is in the spirit of elimination, of identifying and eliminating stresses in my life.
The burn on my hands from grad school is now taking center stage as it apparent it is not the cold, dry season which is causing my hands extreme dryness and cracking. The clues I am starting with are that steroids, such as Kenalog, are the only thing which clear it up, and this is most likely from the combination of cleaning up hydrofluoric acid in the lab with a torn glove. My initial theory is to repair the omega-6 lipid skin formation process.
I feel if I can solve this problem for myself, I can apply this knowledge to others with terribly dry skin, much like I used my research into bipolar to help some of my friends with their job searches.
And, because I would like to get the feelings out of the way from the get-go, I feel bad for all the people I at whom I lashed out, put off, and discomforted to the point of not talking to me anymore since I have been in so much pain. I hope to make myself better to avoid such in the future.
