skin-falling-off

Hello everyone and good evening!

I’m working on my post lab and its been a long time since I used landscape for data charts and graphs. I feel awesome (actually I’m sad and stressed inside but I have to pretend I’m having fun lest I will fail). 

I think I’m a perv. But a perv should not think he is a perv. Like a madman must not think he is mad because that destroys the whole point. 

The tough keratin covers of previously damaged fingers are falling off. My left pointing finger regained its sense of touch. Rejoice.

I recently was put on new medication that they have to carefully and gradually increase the dosage. If I take too much, too quickly, my doctor said I could develop an allergic reaction, which could turn into a life-threatening skin rash that could result in visits to the ER or Burn Unit…

Last night, the first signs of a rash popped up. All over my face. Call me Blotchy-Red Face. 

This morning, still Blotchy-Red Face, but now I have little red splotches on my arms and chest. I think I might be having a reaction. 

Called the doc, she said to stop taking the meds and to come in and see her ASAP. 

Get ready to visit me in the Burn Unit, friends…I can’t guarantee you’ll be able to recognize me :(

Skin Pins

Have you ever wondered why your skin doesn’t just fall off? Binding skin to the connective tissues underneath are tiny ‘rivet’-like structures called hemidesmosomes – revealed here with brightly-coloured dyes under a high powered microscope. A slice through human skin shows a gap between the outer skin layers (top in green) and the connective tissue below (top in red). Using a different green dye, the bottom image shows a vital link between them – green-coloured blobs of a stretchy protein called BP230, a vital part of the hemidesmosome, dotted just above the connective tissue. Hemidesmosomes are built to withstand tough pulling forces, but they can also be destroyed by the body’s own immune system. A mysterious condition called bullous pemphigoid (BP) leaves nasty blisters between skin layers. As the causes of BP are currently unknown, a clearer picture of the hemidesmosome may help to figure out what’s going on under the skin.

Ozark the raccoon’s feet, click the pics for more info!

I was planning on removing them from his body immediately, skinning them and removing as much flesh as possible before beginning the Oxidization process, but while gutting him I actually cut myself, so I immediately cleaned it out (it’s all healed up now, there’s just a small scar where the cut was) so I quickly cut his feet off and just put them in a container to begin macerating.

A week or so later I was cleaning out my maceration containers and changing the water, so I decided to check on the feet. The fur and skin was beginning to fall off, so I took them out of the maceration, removed the rest of the fur, and used a pair of small medical scissors to cut off as much flesh as possible.

Over the next week I soaked them in peroxide overnight, removed them, cut off as much flesh as I could, and then put them back. Today I cut off more flesh, before soaking them in Dawn dish soap and hot water in an effort to remove an excess grease, before washing them off and squeezing them dry.

After that, I put them on cardboard, posed them, and covered them in borax so that they’ll dry in place. I’m not sure how they will hold up over time, as raccoons are greasy and I can’t properly degrease due to needing tendons to hold the bones together, but I’m very happy with how they turned out. It’s very tedious, but it’s much better than glueing a bunch of small bones together.

Tell Your Husband When He Touches You It Feels Like You're Being Napalmed Day!

“Like,” he asks, “Like it’s really hot?”

Tell him yeah, dumbass, napalm feels hot.

“Jesus, read a book.”

“But like,” he asks, “Like your skin is falling off your body?”

With a deep sigh, open your laptop and bring up the Wikipedia page for the word “Napalm.”

“I’m going out to the bars,” tell him as you place the laptop on his lap. “Read this so I don’t have to answer any more questions when I get back. I’ll be too fucked up.”

When you get back at 4 am he’ll still be reading the wiki page.

“So yeah,” he’ll say. “Losing skin is part of it. But do you mean it like, I want you just to ravage me so hard until my clothes and skin are ripped to shreds?”

Murmur something non-committal as you pass out. He’ll move to pick you up and carry you to bed, but then he’ll look at the photo of Phan Thi Kim Phuc again and he won’t know what to do.

Tomorrow he’ll ask you if gloves will help.

Happy Tell Your Husband When He Touches You It Feels Like You’re Being Napalmed Day!

The oxidization attempt with the raccoon feet was a success!

They turned out really well, I just need to glue a few parts together and glue the claw caps on! And of course, wait for Spring so I can actually finish the rest of the skeleton…

you wanna know something kind of weird and maybe a little gross about me

well since you’re following me i’m going to assume yes

through some miracle of genetics i have never in my almost-24 years on earth had the privilege (?) of having a sunburn so bad it peels

now imagine my shock at watching flakes of skin fall off my tattoo

i assume this is what they mean by “should peel like a sunburn” but i can’t be sure
