  • ^Stop using that shit! Those things destroy your flesh! I'm not kidding! Okay, you stopped using them, but let it be a message for everyone else. There's a reason why they say on the packaging you shouldn't use them often!

    Anyway, yeast infection rages on. It's getting mildly better everyday, but I still want to tear my junk off. I'm being a stubborn bitch and not going to the doctor (I don't want more antibiotics) or trying the OTC creams (they never worked before, why should they now?). Getting that fem dolphin shit (I forgot what it's called, that's as close as my brain is getting today) this weekend!

      • Apple Cider Vinegar.

        It'll kill whatever bacteria is down there.

        They say bathing in ACV (4 cups to a small bath) is good, but I found a quicker way.

        Warning: following is quite the TMI post.







        I had a yeast infection wherein the itch was SO bad, I had scratched myself to BLOOD. That's when I realized this was serious. So I sat on the toilet (pants down, of course) poured some straight ACV on to a facecloth and held it to my privates, parting the lips to get the soaked cloth as much inside as I could. Now, because I'd scratched (read: CLAWED) myself to blood, the pain was WHITE-HOT-OMFG-PASS-OUT bad. But I held it there, breathed through it, and when the pain could be felt no longer, I stopped. Dabbed myself with some toilet paper, gingerly pulled up my pants, and crab-walked out of the bathroom. But guess what, NO MORE ITCHING! This was six years ago.

        And I'd do it again over getting any sort of "doctor approved" medicine.

        • Well, other painful stuff down there that is worse than a UTI, that is exacerbated by stress, sucks as well. That's all I'm gonna say about that.

          • Insert a clove of garlic. Seriously. Put a thread through it if you are afraid you won't be able to get it back out. Change it twice a day. It will have you cured from yeast and BV in no time. Will make you stink like garlic for a day or two though.

              This is just bizarre enough that it actually might work. Even if it doesn't, it makes an effective vampire repellant.

                Is that for those 'bite me' moments?

                • Just ate 3 medium sized potatoes. They don't make me sick (luck of the Irish ) but today was definitely a weight gain day.

                  On the plus side potatoes roasted in coconut oil and olive oil are just plain delicious. Expecially paired with roasted pork and beef shoulders.

                  • ACV for yeast infection treatment actually makes sense, but probably only if you get the kind with the "mother" in it or whatever (what IS it?), otherwise it's distilled. It's finally feeling better, last night was the last antibiotic pill I had to take and I don't doubt that the improvement is a direct correlation!

                      Yeah, that "mother" thing kind of scares me. Like some creepy undersea monster movie.

Good news bladder infection is going away but GOTD, disk L4 and L5 are pinching a nerve and it hurts worse than my labor pains ever did. umm yeah, its like that.

                          • Concerning Primal, my gripe is the usual..."but they all DIED by the time they were 30!" And...we know this HOW? ALL of them? How many mummies have we found like Otzi? Where's that written?

                            Oh, wait, they didn't have a written language...

                            • BWAAAAGH my incision is open AGAIIINNNNNNNN AAAAAAAGH.

                              Also it's worse than last time. I am so upset I'm shaking right now. Godeffingdammit.

                              So, let's see. Back to wound care this week. I'll INSIST that they do some kind of culture, give me antibiotics that actually can kill the bug in question, and do the surgery again to try and get the area more stable. Which means more recovery.

                                NOt really. Its the fermentation that forms it. So really it is a collection of bacteria and/or yeasts I imagine. I'm not sure what seeing as how it is vinegar but you get the same stringy, slimy thing in kombucha and other fermented foods too.
