Is this forum for teenagers? Please advise asap because I'm dropping off of it right now if that's what it is. Fricking childish pieces of shit that post adolescent answers. If Neil Peart is a drunk, he is the most functional alcoholic I've ever seen in my life. He is an intellectual, which is why most of you can't relate.
Symptoms and Signs
- While symptoms vary in degree and location, experts say they always include at least one of the following: persistent redness, a propensity to flush or blush easily, small red bumps or pimples and visible blood vessels. Other symptoms are raised red spots called plaques, thickening of the skin due to extra tissue, itchy and bloodshot eyes, rough, dry skin, itching and swelling of the face, and other areas of skin being affected, such as the neck and shoulders. Rosacea is not contagious, and there are no known causes, only hypotheses such as sun irritations, skin bacteria, blood flow, abnormal inflammatory pathways and psychological factors. It has not been scientifically proven to be hereditary, but some evidence suggests that it might be. Often people with the condition can recall a family member having the same condition. A common misconception about bulbous, purple or red noses is that they are the result of consuming large amounts of alcohol earlier in life. But the condition appears in both patients who do drink alcohol as well as those who do not. It is also proven that there is not an increased risk of cancer for patients with rosacea. However, it has been proven that drinking alcohol can compound the symptoms."
Welcome newbie! Most people that post here are not teenagers, but he have our fair share. But things get slow sometimes and we talk about other things, even silly ones like this. The best way not to engage in these types of discussions would be not to post about them.
As for your post, it seems that if Neil has this issue, his drinking makes it worse. I think others here have already made this point.
