My body is disgusting
« on: November 02, 2018, 06:06:13 AM »
I just blew my nose and as per usual inspected the results.

I have read on other forum boards disgust projected at those who do so.

Why should I be ashamed of the things my body naturally produces? It does so for a reason. And checking the result gives me feedback on the state of (il)health I may or may not be in.

It is time to free myself from the shackles of judgement. The “wider populace”, my FOO, and last but not in the tiniest bit least my inner critic!

What other bodily functions should I celebrate next?

Wow, some people spend way too much time worrying about what other people do.  If they think it's gross, then they shouldn't do it.   

And yes, I also check the contents of my tissues from time to time for no reason other than I'm curious. 

As for other bodily functions, I know a lot of people like to check their poop.  It can tell lots about the state of your digestion.

I agree completely. It's good to monitor not only the input but also the output. The color, texture, etc of certain "emissions" or whatever can be a clue to our health.

Hey Boy22,

I completely agree with you and it's nice to see you standing up against such criticism! We shouldn't be shunned for just being... Human.

And it's important for us to have self care and monitor our bodies from time to time. If being shunned for such thing was appropriate, nobody would ever see a doctor!

Regards,
Ellis.
