i’m your venous (week 3)

It’s been three weeks since I re-commenced applying caster oil on my venous lake morning and night – for 5 minutes each time.


i really wasn’t as pained as i look

Definitely faded, though probably more in the photos than in real life. There are some quite small lighter patches developing, but the overall size is unchanged. It really does look like a GiantHideousDeformity in the mirror, so it is difficult to tell which is reality. Probably somewhere in the middle.

It is still pretty tedious – even more tedious when you leave the cap off the caster oil overnight and spill half the bottle over your bedside table.

It was a little while after this that I plateaued, then abandoned, my last attempt – this time I’m definitely going to power through (for science!) and see where it takes me.

  1. Thank you very much for the update! It actually does look like it has faded a bit. I see what you mean about the jury still being out though. Venous lakes are hard to photograph, so it’s challenging to clearly see the difference. I think lighting has something to do with it as well. Perhaps a side by side comparison of before and after pics might be helpful? Anyway, you aren’t in this alone. I’ve decided to join you on this journey, and I’m finding it hard to see a considerable difference myself. Like you, I’m going to power through though cuz, you know, for science! đŸ™‚ Thanks again. Look forward to the next update!

    • Oh brilliant, I’m excited to see if it works for you! It does get really tedious, but I keep reminding myself it is only 5 minutes (though maybe longer would achieve better results?)

      I definitely need to sort out a premium photo spot for comparison purposes.

      Good luck and please do keep me posted on the progress!
