The Incredible Ageing Woman.

Hi,

.

Today I woke to surprisingly bright sunshine, and forecasts promise a couple of days of unseasonably good, warm weather.

Yeah, possibly, but the seasons pass inexorably no matter what we prefer, or how much we protest their change.

.

It is the same with life.

All of us worry about the unwelcome effects of ageing, finding it hard to cope when the outside of the body begins to differ so much from how we still feel inside.

It is not an easy change to accept, even though it is a natural part of life.

.

How much harder then for a lovely woman in her early twenties to suddenly look about 53 years older within days.

.

According to Nguyen Thi Phuong, a pretty young married woman living in a village in Vietnam, it all began in 2008.

Suddenly, she and everyone around her, were horrified to see that her skin was suddenly beginning to become old, puffy, and saggy very very quickly.

In no time at all she began to look like a grandmother in her seventies.

.

Eventually news of her disturbing condition reached the ears of two dermatology experts, who made their way to her village.

These specialist doctors, one of whom was from the Ho Chi Minh University, talked with Nguyen Thi Phuong at some length, to discover all of the details, and then carried out tests upon her skin.

.

They came to the conclusion that she was most probably suffering from a very rare condition known as Mastcytosis, which is caused when the body produces too many mast cells.

The doctors are perplexed as to what could have caused this to happen, but it has been reported that it could be possible that the illness has been triggered by the long term usage of traditional, and therefore unregulated, medicines.

Of course, further tests will need to be carried out to confirm the diagnosis, but if it is correct then it seems that there is the possibility of the unfortunate lady having a 50-70% chance of making a recovery.

.

Wow, that puts ageing normally into a far more acceptable light!

.

So, do have a good day without too many wrinkles in it!

J.
