Eleven Days After The Fall – when Big Foot (the scale) tripped me in the bathroom in the middle of the night and the bathtub sucker-punched me.
This is the first day I went out absent the face make-up. You know that “It” make-up for people with blemishes or rosebuds or scars or uneven coloring on their faces? It really does do a good job covering up stuff. I could do an Advertisement for this product, made by It Cosmetics, but I don’t have any before pictures of how the make-up actually did cover up the bruises. It didn’t cover them totally, and I did look a little like an American Geisha Girl in the face part, but it covered enough so I was comfortable – and that’s what mattered to me.
It doesn’t cover up swelling though and that was a big part for the first three days. The ‘day after’ pictures, even I couldn’t bear to look at, so I deleted them and went with ‘on the third day’ after the fall, this is what I looked like.
I keep thinking there’s going to be some benefit to me – that the knockout punch corrected something that needed to be corrected in my brain, in my neck. Okay, so I didn’t ‘come to’ speaking a foreign language. But come on…something, anything good, some benefit.
Maybe something was out-of-place from a long ago injury (pick an injury any injury) or a long ago surgery (pick a surgery any surgery) that needed to be put back the way it was originally.
If I needed down time I didn’t take it.
Even when I don’t type because of the high intensity pain, I still cook and write by hand and work around the house and do my physical and mental work-outs and walk wherever I need to shop or visit. I’m tougher than I look and act. I wonder why that is? It must have a survival advantage for me. And for those around me lol.
Maybe my brain and neck wouldn’t have been looked at via a CAT scan – and it needed to be looked at – unless there was a visible reason, instead of me just saying there’s something wrong with my neck and/or brain that needs fixing. State of the Art fixing. Not dinosaur treatment methods reserved for women of all ages and old folks. I’m due for the best there is in medical technologies and treatment options no matter what I have.
I did notice one thing. My left hip pain and left sciatica is gone. That might be temporary. It has never been GONE before. It’s lesser or greater. Never at zero. That hip injury was from the Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman verdict. Payback for me not supporting Trayvon Martin’s right to try to kill George Zimmerman. Trayvon Martin was waiting for a drug hook-up and George Zimmerman was on neighborhood watch patrol.
We’ll see how it all shakes out.
All I know for sure is I’m on the mend for some injuries, others have yet to be addressed, and All my troops are home – circling the greater Cleveland, Ohio area.
IT Cosmetics™ is certified by PETA as a 100% cruelty-free brand, and you will find us listed on their website. Remaining a cruelty-free brand is extremely important to us, as it is to so many of you! IT Cosmetics™ has never tested products on animals, nor do we use animal hair in our brushes—and we have absolutely no plans to change that.
My Comment: However, that being said, I still can’t determine if the two products I used contain animal products. (CC+ Color Correcting Coverage Cream and BYE BYE UNDEREYE). I’ve read about the snail slime and frankly am not bothered by it as long as the snails aren’t. In the past I read that It Cosmetics assured that they weren’t harmed. I wish somebody would find some use for geese poop in Cleveland. The geese would probably like that as well. They poop everywhere. Of course poop can contain animal products if the animal excreting the poop ate another animal, insects, worms, fish etc. It’s getting a little tricky here.
Glycerin can be either plant or animal. And the other ingredients are too numerous with chemical names, so I’m going to reach out and wait for a response. Will get back to this later.
In the meanwhile, I applied make-up to the injured side of my face, even though most of the bruising is gone. I’m not too good at it, since I don’t usually wear face make-up. Plus I can’t see that well up close. In addition, my iphone enlarges every pore, even without high definition. For their next phone they need to correct that.
