As with previous blog, I thought I’d share another website. This is useful for those with joint problem. It’s called msm supplements. My mom could use this too but it’s probably not available in Malaysia. My mom has knee problems now, and it sucks because she can hardly walk up the stairs now or walk far at the malls so shopping with her would be a pain in the ass. It’s funny how she always complaint that I’m not taking her anywhere. It’s not that I don’t want to, but she’d walk for a few meters then have a 10 minutes rest everytime.
Just thought I’d share this. If you have somebody with disability and facing the problem mentioned below, they might be able to help. It doesn’t apply to, for example, Malaysians though because we don’t have the social security thingy. I think this only applies in the United States?
Allsup is a leading nationwide provider of financial and healthcare related services to people with disabilities. Since 1984, Allsup has helped more than 130,000 people receive their entitled Social Security Disability Insurance and Medicare benefits. Allsup employs more than 600 professionals who deliver services directly to consumers and their families, or through their employers and long-term disability insurance carriers. Allsup has a 98% success rate for those who complete the SSDI process with us. Complete Allsup’s free online Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) evaluation. Allsup appreciates how difficult it can be to get the Social Security disability benefits you deserve. People who choose Allsup usually get their SSDI award faster. Allsup only charges a fee if we obtain Social Security disability benefits for you. We can help you get the SSDI benefits you deserve, whether applying for the first time or appealing a denial. SSDI is provided by the SSA to people who qualify and have paid into the system (FICA taxes). There is no transaction – we shouldn’t use that word. We can help people file a disability appeal after they have been denied by the SSA. It is convenient and easy to work with us and we make the process easier. And the backlog is due to high demand or rather an increase in SSDI applications. No one pays us to get SSDI either – we are paid a fee for helping people through the process with the SSA
Because of my stupid acne that came back due to graduation showcase stress couple of months ago, I am now left with scars. Stupid scars. No, nothing works. Not even over the counter medicine that I used to use, which is Differin.. I finally bought Cetaphil though 2 days ago, now I just need to hunt for Neostrata. However I’m fedup with all the expensive medications that don’t work. Do acne home remedy work?
I’m soooooo tempted to go back on accutane, or at least a similar one that works the same. So fucking tempted. But then again, when I think about it, I hate having the dry, chapped lips and fucked up menstrual cycle in order to have a zit-free face. I’m already worried that it has done some damage to me. Of course if you take it if you’re pregnant, your baby will be er.. deformed? Urgh.What if it can also do damage to stomach and at the time when you’re having a baby even if at that time you’re not taking it? And I think I’ve been having serious depression problem because of that medicine.
Urgh. Why. Why oh why do some people have to suffer with acne and acne scarring when some people can have flawless skin without even doing much? I hate them.
I wanted to write a blog for a contest but I missed the dateline because I was too busy so oh well. I’ve been missing a lot of topic that I want to write for a blog. Hmm. Okay. I wanna talk about gym.
Couple of weeks ago, I got a call from Fitness First gym nearby that they’re having a promotion. You see, I love FF because they give a starter pack which consist of a bag, towel, water bottle and headphone to be used in the gym.. they also give complimentary beverage so you can drink after a work out or if you just wanna chill and have a drink. They also give out DVD rental. But the thing is, the curve branch has turned platinum.. which means, it’s now an exclusive club and without platinum membership, you can’t get in.
Now, platinum membership. It’s expensive. It will burn my pocket hole. Only perk is that I can have access to all club, including the Curve branch. I like the Curve because it’s easier to park car compares to the one in Uptown which is closer. Uptown is like 5 minutes away, Curve is like 10 minutes. I’d have to pay almost RM700 for joining and RM215 monthly.
But then I got a call saying I can have the student price. I only have to pay RM285-ish and RM189 monthly or something. I guess I can’t pass this up because platinum membership at price of normal membership, that’s a good deal. However my friend has joined Celebrity Fitness recently because they had a Chinese New Year offer. RM400-ish. That’s the same amount I got as student price before lol. Still a bit too expensive. However I can also get RM179 price monthly (student price) BUT I don’t have access to any other clubs other than the one in 1Utama. Urgh. The only reason I want there is because of the classes. They have zumba, and they have a lot of interesting classes, including pole dancing.
Well I guess I’m happy with FF more.. now I just need to have motivation to go there. Well if only they have hot guys in bulky muscles.. full on testosterone boosters.. sweaty body.. lol. Anyways..! Moving on!
Have you heard of colon cleansing products? It’s good to cleanse your colon because that’s where majority of problems come from. I’ve blogged about colon cleansing before but have never tried it until last month where I bought one colon cleanse product. It’s like a local herb company with a famous doctor called Dr Azimuth who created the products. It’s a pain in the ass to drink that thing. This is how my daily routine used to be last month:
1. Drink 1 or 2 glasses of plain water and wait for 10 minutes
2. Drink a glass of ‘colonkleen’ and wait another 10 minutes
3. Drink a glass of ‘bioyouth’ and wait 10 minutes
4. Take a spoonful of ‘Gamatmaxx’ and wait 10 minutes (optional)
Only then I can take my breakfast. By the time I can eat, I’ve already wasted an hour trying to drink the yucky medicine and I’d be already way too bloated to eat anything. Urgh, why can’t all medicines be in one small pill and it’s like a miracle pill where it can cure every single sickness? Because my routine doesn’t end there. After breakfast I had to take 3 pills more – for my asthma, evening primrose, and vitamin E pill. FML.
