    1. Mary, often a little unwell, and always thinking a great deal of her own complaints

      In Jane Austen the Secret Radical Helena Kelly suggests that Mary is pregnant during the course of the novel. Is Mary a hypochondriac? She is the youngest child and like Anne probably didn't get much attention (even less from her mother as she was younger when she died). Have we been unjustly maligning Mary this whole time - could she have a chronic illness? Or is it about being an extrovert and really needing to feed off other people to feel "up"?

    1. Large doses or chronic usage of glucocorticoids reduce collagen synthesis and wound strength
    2. while open wounds require a combination of tissue contraction, connective tissue deposition, and epithelialization to a lesser extent. Chronic ulcers heal by secondary intention similar to open wounds.
    3. By definition, an acute wound becomes chronic if healing is not achieved after 4 weeks of treatment.
    4. Chronic wounds, in general, behave differently in relation to bacterial growth when compared to acute wounds. Chronic wounds develop bacterial growth that is resistant to invasion by antibiotics and is protected from the host immune defenses.
    5. Chronic wounds have a decreased oxygen supply, and for a long time lack of oxygen was recognized as a potential cause of delayed healing.
