2023.06.02 11:44 Severe_Body_7872 Problem with skin care and beauty standards in Sri Lanka?!

Hey Guys, I am 24(m) and have been facing severe skin issues( acne, eczema, ) myself since puberty. Im currently doing research on skin care and have been convinced that plant based products are much more effective and sustainable, would you guys agree? and secondly i noticed the main stream narrative in sri lanka when it comes to skin care is indirectly hinted towards skin complexion(color) rather than skin health, am i seeing things or do you guys see it as well?
Id like to know the struggles that you guys go through with regards to skin care and your opinion in general, feel free to jump in !!!
These are my current issues with skin care -
  1. Way too many options - there are so many products out there marketed on different angles it makes my skin issue seem more complex than it is
  2. Routines - Same as before, every routine I see includes a number of different products and way too many steps, shouldnt skin care be easy and convenient????
  3. Skin color over skin health - Even some of the derms that you see in SL nudge you towards whitening creams rather than helping you keep your skin healthy,

2023.06.02 11:43 UhhhhhWhat-vector7 5 years with stomach problems. Finally being tested for H pylori.

I’m 28m, about 5’9” and currently 230 pounds. When I was 23, I was about 180 pounds, and into the keto diet a lot and 1 meal a day fasting, and a lot of black coffee during my fasts. I had no idea what this could do to my stomach.
Then one day I felt sick and felt like a balloon was expanding specifically on the left side of my stomach. Panic and anxiety followed with much googling and webmd’ing. My stool was dark and so thought I was dying. I even started feeling nerve pain in random parts of my body, and extreme fatigue, and overall just shaky all the time. I didn’t have health insurance and took advantage of the fact that the ER wouldn’t turn me away. I didn’t feel like I had any other option, but none of the ER doctors or Urgent cares gave a shit, and just kept saying I had “gastritis” and “anxiety”, but ran no tests. How could you know what’s going on inside my body without actually running tests and taking a look inside right?
Anyway, I gained about 40 pounds from stress eating and letting the anxiety take over my life. I eventually started cutting carbs again, fasting again, and when Covid hit, I had a lot of free time and was able to focus on my mental health. I lost 30 pounds again, and although the stomach issues were bad, they weren’t terrible, and overall, I felt so much better. I thought I had got it under control with diet and supplements “psyllium husk, glutamine”, for about 4 months. That was 2 years later when I was 25. Then one day at woke up with crazy heart palpitations and difficulty breathing. I went to the ER, and they did blood work and chest X-rays and found nothing. Again said it was anxiety. I then gained back that 30 pounds I lost in the coming months.
One day I finally got health insurance, got a primary care physician, and he sent me to a cardiologist for the breathing problems and heart palpitations. They did a full work up and said I was experiencing PVCs, but had not idea why and said if I lost some weight and managed my stress, it should be fine. I lost 10 pounds, started focusing on things I enjoy, and it happened, the PVCs stopped (sorta). I still feel out of breath all the time. ESPECIALLY after eating, but it’s better. However, I would still have a day every now and then where I would feel some stomach pain, and odd,y flu like symptoms. Almost incapacitating, and I would have to sleep it off. I knew there was still something wrong and I couldn’t live with that happening forever.
Now in the past year things have gotten worse. One day last November I had this sharp pain somewhere inside me on the left. Almost above my stomach and below my heart. And it would stretch from my front and I would even feel it in my back. Specifically on the left. Especially when I would breathe in. It was debilitating and again, went to the doctors, ran blood work, ct scan, ultrasound, GI Cocktail (which actually did not numb the pain) and nothing. They said I was perfectly healthy except my cholesterol is high. I’m like mf I cannot breathe and Im in pain, like where do we go from here?
I ate nothing but oatmeal and salad for a couple of weeks and well, it’s mostly subsided, so now that’s all I eat, but keeps coming back and now my gastro issues are worse than ever. Constant diarrhea, pain no matter what I eat, (in specific places too, like sharp pinches in my intestines?), always out of breath, even when resting, nerve pain and twitching, feels like my kidneys are inflamed, my heart feels like it’s twitching, back pain, my lungs feel sore and tired, I constantly feel my heart too, like why? That doesn’t feel normal. Some acid reflux but shockingly not often.
Finally after many doctors, my new pcp requested an h pylori test. Breath test and stool sample. If it comes back positive, that means I’ve had an H pylori infection for 5 years… I can only imagine the damage that’s done to my insides.
At the same time I’m praying it comes back positive, because the only thing that’s been on my mind for the past 5 years is “do I have cancer? Is it lung cancer? Stomach cancer? Colon cancer? Heart failure? COPD? Am I ever going to recover? Is it just downhill from here until I die?”
I’m too young for this and I already feel like I’m 60. I just want my life back.
I guess the reason I’m posting this is because I just want to see who understands. Who has been through the same things. The last 5 years have been hell with no end in sight, and no one I know can relate. Most of my family think I’m crazy, and my poor amazing girlfriend who I met in my prime, a year before all this, has been so supportive but she deserves better than what this has turned me into, and she can’t relate. I feel completely alone here. And I’m a despise my job, and became a private pilot, with hopes of becoming a commercial pilot to get me out of this shit job. But I can’t move forward until my health is in order.
Please let this be H pylori so can finally treat it and hopefully have my life back.

2023.06.02 11:37 Maddie_Patt Wholesome conversation made me cry

Wholesome conversation made me cry
Context; I go to Chat every now and then when I need help and can’t find a good answer on my own. My cat started showing some concerning behavior and it’s much too late to call a vet. I asked chat what it could be and what I could do to pay for any vet bills. I’ve been incredibly stressed for her health but am not in a position to take care of vet bills. I had not mentioned the stress prior but Chat gave a simple yet wholesome response at the end of it all. I felt the need to thank it (obviously I know it’s not real but it was something that made me feel better and I needed to vent) and it continued to be very wholesome and encouraging and again, while it is simple and overall a pretty normal response, it made me cry all over again. It’s crazy how much those words can mean, even if they are artificial.
So I guess, shout out to chat and the people who work on it. It’s just doing it’s job but it made a stressful situation more comfortable in an almost human capacity and it’s nicer than most real people lol

2023.06.02 11:32 Pubic_Tiger What are some countries that support LGBTQ communities openly?

I need to know what are some countries that support LGBTQ communities. I really can't handle this f*cking conservative country. Why is it so hard for people to accept change??? Why hold on to these religious beliefs that has no value to you even though there are things that you hate in the same religious stuff? I can't put up with my parents' standards and I really don't care for this country anymore. I don't care if some of y'all call me unpatriotic, my mental health is really fragile and is hanging on by a single string which is on the verge of breaking. I am gonna get out of here as soon as I get my college degree. I just need to know the countries which would give me peace and support I need.

2023.06.02 11:29 sarahealth01 Which Raw Material Is Used for Medical Face Mask Manufacturing?

Which Raw Material Is Used for Medical Face Mask Manufacturing?
The 2019-nCoV prevention and control work has been expanded and promoted, which has increased the demand for raw materials related to prevention and control, such as face masks and protective apparel. This, in turn, has led to increased demand for raw materials related to production. The disposable medical mask has three layers: an inner layer, an outer layer, and an intermediate layer of non-woven cloth made by Medical Face Mask Manufacturers. Polypropylene melts blown non-woven fabric treated with electret. It serves as the intermediate filter layer between the inner layer of regular non-woven fabric and the outer layer of non-woven fabric with waterproof treatment, mostly used to isolate the liquid ejected by patients.

Non-woven fabric, also known as non-woven cloth (non-woven fabric)

The first key component is non-woven textiles. This material eliminates the need for weaving by being constructed of synthetic resin particles held together by adhesives that take advantage of the heat effects of contemporary machinery or solvents to connect and link individual fibres.
Non-woven fabrics are frequently used in items that require safety since they are thin, light, vented, and self-biodegradable. They can avoid dust and bacteria while providing the user with ventilation. Masks, tea bags, tampons, diapers, damp towels, face towels, and many other products.

Filtering fabric treated against germs

The centre liner is made of antimicrobial filter cloth, which can efficiently remove dust from the air. Expert testimony suggests this cloth can filter out as much as 99% of dust and bacteria. This means that the majority of respiratory illnesses can be avoided.

2023.06.02 11:26 threebillboards AITA for complaining to my brother about my mother?

My mother called me last night to ask if I’d be visiting for the weekend and I said I wasn’t sure yet as I’m not feeling great. In her next sentence she went on to explain the activities a relative is doing for her birthday, my relative is having a spa thing at a local hotel and my mother said these words ‘she’s having an hour spa thing at ‘hotel name’ but don’t worry threebillboards you’re not invited’. That was obviously really hurtful so I said ok I won’t be over this weekend to see you, then my oven timer went off and I said I had to go. I texted my brother a little later to vent about what was said and about a couple of other familial issues - we do this for each other from time to time - vent and support. But this time he completely turned it around on me. He rang our mother and she denied she said it! Now he’s calling me a liar, saying I’m hurtful, and that I have mental health issues because I think everyone hates me. I’ve been trying to make him understand I’m not lying, that’s what she said to me and I’ve every right to be upset. He finished the conversation with telling me ‘facts don’t care about my feelings, that he loves me but I need to see a mental health specialist and that he doesn’t have time to do this today’. All I wanted was some compassion and an acknowledgement that she shouldn’t have said what she said, instead he completely attacked me.
My brother was the only one in my immediate family I felt I could talk to but now it feels like I’m alone. I just need to know was I the asshole for venting?

2023.06.02 11:19 Nowhat32 I self-diagnosed after 17 years of the death sentence that is Treatment-Resistant Depression

I started Vyvanse 30mg today and although I have really dry eyes... nothing else. I procrastinated maybe more than normal. I have a slight headache feel MEH. I am in the middle east this medication is hard to get, asking after 3 days on it will make me look like an addict. They will suspect addiction. I work in an environment where I could never share my diagnoses and it is hard to afford the therapy not just financially but with time. Oh and I am hungry !! despite my doctor telling me be careful with this you will lose a lot of weight.
Today I arrived late at work for the millionth time. I sat down and did nothing from my to-do list. I did everything except my to-do list. I spoke to people, I put emojis on comments in MS Teams. Why am I like this!!! Everything is urgent. I need to go home on time for my kid and yet there are 25 mins left on the clock and I still haven't started.
My son is 2 and he is just the best. I don't want him to be like me. My husband will be so dissapointed that I haven't come home euphoric. After watching me try a million meds for depression, watch my libido turn to nothing- there were high hopes that this new diagnoses and new hard to come by addictive medication would really help.

2023.06.02 11:19 DoNotLikeTheSun I cannot forgive my dad for his promises

My dad didn't touch any alcohol for the past 20 years due to his health, but he's "drunk" for almost all of his life. When I said drunk, this man is living in his own world built by the ego of a young ambitous new grad. He graduated from top school back then, got accepted into good companies, which already gave him better head start than most people. But his ego was too big he always got into arguments and fights with the managers. None of his job was longer than 12 months. My mom paid for their wedding, their house, and even his motorbike so he had something to travel to work. After multiple job hopping, he asked her for more money to open his own business. The business went on for a few years and went bankrupt. Our family was in debt and my mom, the one who borrowed the money for him, had to worked hard to pay the debt.
He promised a lot but never made a single one happen. I once wished for a cotton doll we saw on the street, and he said he'd buy me one next year if I could stay in top of class. I did it and he never bought me that doll. I wished I could have a big house with my own room so I could decorate the walls purple. Ironically, he promised again and again, but never did it. So on and so on, I could keep the list go on forever. If I want something, I had to get it by myself. Which is weird to think about when you have both mom and dad and a loving family yet you have to do everything by yourself. I started working since I was 12-13, did homework for my classmates in exchange of money. But thing didn't stop here. Dad found out I had money and he asked me to borrow it. He never returned the money in time as he promised. My heart shattered having to beg him to return my money. Eventually he would return them, but I was so tired of keep begging him. The bigger the money, the longer time he'd return.
The longest time I've had begged him was 1 year for $500. $500 was 1-2 months salary back then in my hometown, but it took a kid like me years to save up that much. Dad opened a second business after my mom finished paying all debts and he said he needed money again. He knew I had $500, which was all of my saving at that time. He asked me to borrow it, promised he would return double the money in 3 months. Just like all of his previous promises, not only I didn't receive the profit, I also didn't recieve back my original money. I begged for him again, and it took me 1 year to finally got my money back. Dad gave me $500 as new year's money, saying I should be grateful for receiving such big amount of money as if he gifted me something, while knowing damn well it was my money from the beginning.
This man thought he was destined for something special, and he would become rich soon. He talked about how he'd have been billionare for a long time if he had enough money, as if he didn't borrow tons of money from my mother and put all of us in debts for years. But he still kept talking about a dream he could never reach. The reality was that I, a teenage girl, still had to sleep in the same room with my parents because our house was too small and only had 1 bedroom. I can never forget when I finally had my own room, it was used as a laundry room and altar room as well. Every night I waited until the incense smoke had faded so I could get back to my bed. The candles must be lit all night for the altar so my room was never completely dark. I thought we were poor, but funny thing is we weren't even that poor. Years later I found out my mom had money and secretly bought a bigger house outside. But she was afraid dad would know about it, then asked to sell this house (which she bought 100% with her money) so he had more money for his business. She said dad also borrowed her a lot money like me and she had to act poor to avoid him finding out about her assets. I was devastated. This must be a joke. Learning that you could have access to better thing in your life if your dad wasn't a narcissist who believed he just need "a little bit more money" to become a billionare.
At first I was angry with my mom. The final straw was when I realized dad already knew everything about it. He knew my mother had other assets and another house. But he decided to play dumb and made everyone life's miserable in this house so my mother gave up and just told him the truth so we could all move to the new house after he sold the current house for money. The wife and husband had been putting on an act for years. Years of living in a slump. Years of miserable life couldn't have anything nice. Years of working hard to have good grades and money believing I would "save" my family from this situation and built them a new house. I tried to escape from poverty just to realized my parents, and especially my dad, was the one forced me to stay there.
I moved out after highschool, worked 2-3 jobs while attending college full time at the same time. At that point I was numb anyway. I didn't care anymore and just want to focus on my career. I opened a small business which made good money for a person to live comfortably. I stopped talking to my dad for a long time, but still in contact with my mom. She told me I should forgive my dad because he was a good dad after all for providing me food and clothes, and he had tried his best. I refused, because I had tried multiple times in the past, but in the end he'd always showed his true color: selfish. He seems to be more generous now as he had earn good money in recent years, but his behavior didn't change. I have seen him giving money to other people more than to his own family. He probably thinks family relationship is low-maintainence because we're related by blood so he didn't put much thought and effort into it.
He's turning 51 this year, yet still dreamed the same dream 30 years ago. This man love his family, but he loves his dream of becoming a succesful man more. At some point I think he realized he wouldn't become a great person he'd always want to, but too proud to accept failure. I believe he only starts to care about father - daughter relationship because he's getting old and lonely. Somehow he manages to make the same mistake he'd always made, thinking he's still have a lot of time to figure things out. Maybe I'll forgive him one day, maybe I don't. But I'm tired waiting for him. I don't want to let him borrow my love and takes forever to return it.
Better cried on my own rather than being fed with another meaningless promise again.

2023.06.02 11:17 ProfessionalLow1921 The Best Luxury Item in the World: Back To Youthful Skin

The Best Luxury Item in the World: Back To Youthful Skin
In this world of materialistic pursuits, people chase after various luxury items. However, in my opinion, the best luxury item in the world is not gold or silver jewelry, but a youthful and radiant skin. It is our beautiful proof and a testament to our appreciation of life.

https://preview.redd.it/z8chzgkvnk3b1.png?width=442&format=png&auto=webp&s=bfc902b39e76b676857bd38c2f47ec6dc322bba9
Youthful skin is like a gift bestowed upon us by the heavens. It is an irreplaceable treasure, more valuable than any wealth. Money cannot buy young skin; it is the culmination of time accumulation and care.
Youthful skin is the result of both internal and external cultivation. When we focus on inner balance and maintain a healthy lifestyle, our skin naturally exudes health and radiance. And when we diligently nurture our external appearance, carefully selecting skincare products and practicing moderate care, our skin blossoms with a youthful glow.
When we possess youthful skin, we no longer need extravagant embellishments to prove our worth. We confidently showcase the beauty within us and radiate a natural glow.
Youthful skin is a luxury item because it is a rare and priceless gift. It reminds us that the most important things in life are health and confidence. Let us cherish this luxury, taking care of our skin while nurturing inner tranquility and beauty.

2023.06.02 11:16 FirmAd8811 Being betrayed by people I considered as my friends. I am truly lonely.

TL;DR My friends met without me when I was ill and didn't even bother to ask me about my well being.
This happened to me yesterday and I feel very sad. Sorry if this is incoherent. I just wanted to write my heart out and share it with someone who could understand.
We are a group of 4 friends and have been close since school days. We meet occasionally and are good friends. I used to consider these girls as my closest friends who love me and care for me. But something happened yesterday that broke my heart.
We were to meet yesterday to catch up and just have a good time. One friend, Sak and I live quite close to each other and the other two friends live a bit far away. So we decided to meet at Sak's place, she lives only a few mins away from my place. I invited them over to my home but Sak said she has a lot of work to do so insisted we meet at hers. Everything was decided and we were to meet at 6 PM.
Suddenly, at around 2 PM, my stomach started aching and I felt nauseous. I also started vomiting which deteriorated my health further. I was also on my first day of periods so it was a very difficult afternoon I was hurting and crying. Still, I decided I would go if I felt better.
It was evening and was time to go. However, I was not feeling well at all to go there. So I didn't. My friend called my mother to ask if i was coming. My mother told her that I was not well so they can come to our place. She didn't say anything and hung up. They didn't come and I was here, wallowing in my pain. I felt very sad and lonely. They could've come to meet me since we live so close but they didn't consider it important. They didn't even ask me how i was. This made me realise that I'm very much replaceable and no one needs me. I am very much lonely and without friends. This truth is heartbreaking but there is nothing that can mend my heart. This broke my heart. I feel betrayed. Sorry for my rant but I just feel so frozen and numb. I really thought I had friends...

2023.06.02 11:16 cerebral_grooves I cant help falling in love with you. (Our song for a beautiful evening)

It's been a short time. I have to stay guarded. Life is too painful as it is. A broken heart can derail things pretty easy. I know she's guarded as well because of past shithead boyfriends. Things are moving fast though. I went over to her house just to hold her until she fell asleep. It brings me intense joy to make her feel comfortable and loved. I am a giver and a lover. There is a lot that we have to overcome to graduate to an actual relationship. There are kids and dogs and mental illness and health issues. I am curious if we will make it. I had previously given up on love. So it's essential that I stay guarded.
But people, there are fireworks happening. Chemistry is something that can only be felt. It can't be described because it's your gut, heart, and mind all pulling you toward a counterpart. It's indescribable. When we wrap ourselves around each other and kiss. You can hear symphony music. I know it's cheesy but I don't care. It's straight out of a movie.
All these things to overcome are very scary. Some I'm not sure can be. I don't know if my health will hold up for a new relationship. She's got so much life ahead of her and I've been expecting mine to end very soon.
If love can't prosper than nothing will be able to. But I have so much gratitude that I will die happy because this woman made me feel like the coolest person in the world, when I thought that I was just skin and bones.

2023.06.02 11:15 indian_astrology What Happens When Shani Mahadasha Starts? Unveiling the Mysteries

What Happens When Shani Mahadasha Starts? Unveiling the Mysteries
According to Vedic astrology, the Shani Mahadasha period is also called the Saturn period. It holds immense importance in an individual's life, as it signifies the influence of the planet Saturn on various aspects, including career, relationships, health, and spirituality. In this article, we will delve into the mysteries surrounding the onset of Shani Mahadasha and explore its effects on different aspects of life.
Shani Mahadasha
Before we dive into the specifics of Shani Mahadasha, let's first understand the concept of Mahadasha itself. In Vedic astrology, Mahadasha represents a major planetary period that lasts for a significant number of years. Each planet has its Mahadasha, during which it exerts its influence over an individual's life.
What is Shani Mahadasha?
Vedic astrology illustrates the significance of Saturn Mahadasha, also known as Shani Mahadasha. In Vedic astrology, the term "Mahadasha" refers to a major planetary period that influences an individual's life. Each Mahadasha is associated with a specific planet, and during that period, the qualities and energies of that planet dominate and shape the person's experiences.
Shani Mahadasha is the period governed by the planet Saturn (Shani). Saturn is considered a karmic planet in astrology, associated with discipline, responsibility, hard work, and life lessons. The duration of Shani Mahadasha is 19 years, and it plays a crucial role in shaping an individual's destiny.
It is possible to find both challenges and opportunities under the Saturn Mahadasha during the Shani Mahadasha. Spiritual development, growth, and self-reflection are thought to occur during this period. Saturn's energy encourages individuals to face their responsibilities, learn from their past actions, and make necessary changes for personal growth.
