Have started developing tiny, paired dark spots in
a much larger developing blister. The last time I
observed this, the resulting lesion looked like the
bite of a tiny viper...
Oh good..more "snake bites" developing.
Second day of swelling and increasing tenderness of the
Hey, I know..lets get a peek at what is brewing just under
Attempts to get a photo of the very faint dark spots and
the surrounding inflammation..fail. Camera/lighting not
up to such...subtle shadings. No worries..the damage
will get worser..and easier to photograph.
Lanced the area nearest the faint dark spots..
transfer a bit of the fluid ["snake venom" to a slide..and..took a look.
..at least the RBC's [red blood cells] are looking
pretty good..considering what they are swimming in.
I have other samples where the RBC's were displaying
crenulations..notches..they looked more like tiny
gears than RBC's. Best guess is that they being
torn up from oxidation/free radical damage. I have been
hogging on the vitamin C..[about 5 grams a day]..suspect
that all that antioxidant is helping the blood cells
avoid being punched full of holes by bad chemistry
being provided in large amounts by the mOrg.
..in this "bright" view, you can't really see the
blood cells anymore; they get washed out to near invisibility...
but the "shiny plastic" looking mOrg junk is VERY obvious.
yeah..this sort of thing is a bit depressing..but...
it's what's on my plate. Will try repeated lancings
and draining to try and avoid getting actual "crater lesions" on the finger...which are QUITE annoying...and
generally no fun at all.
