So sore/achy and yet still semi happy.

My hips have not been feeling so great today. Less tight than last weekend but no beuno. Feeling really achy today and a little but of random sharp pains there. Also a bit of tightness in my IT band. I am getting pissed off with all these injuries. I’m doing everything the physio told me. :(

ok this is gross kinda idk but more of my breloom, orville

since hes a fighter i thought what if he over works himself in battle, gets nasty injuries or gets hella stressed and he breaks out into gross spores and fungus’ 

like it can either grow from open wounds or certain patches of skin? something 

altho breloom isnt a poison type his ability is poison heal and i like to think due to using the toxic orb his bodily fluids are mixed with poison 

Your OTP are neighbors in an apartment complex who’ve never really talked beyond saying hello. One evening, Person A knocks on Person B’s door; they’ve injured themselves and need to be driven to the hospital.

A humpback whale sporting an accentuated curved back, spotted Monday off  Port Allen, wasn’t necessarily hit by a vessel, according to an official at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

“We don’t know for sure, any number of things could’ve happened,” NOAA marine mammal response coordinator David Schofield said. “It could be scoliosis, which is any curvature on the back.”

Schofield, however, didn’t discard a vessel collision, saying the animal could have been hit in an early stage, and then got an infection that caused the scoliosis.

Humpback whales are usually dark gray or black, with white spots and patches. The whale spotted by flight instructor Gerry Charlebois had a much different color pattern.

“The white coloration with the dark patches, and the whale lice on the patches, is definitely a sign of not being healthy,” said Schofield, adding that the whale could have swam all the way from Alaska even if it was already sick.

Imagine person A of your OTP is in hospital for surgery. When they wake up after the operation person B is sitting next to them, holding their hand. Person A’s heart rate monitor then proceeds to go through the roof as they get incredibly flustered from seeing person B there, causing the nurses to come running.

I’m writing about this sad experience because, of late, I’ve been feeling low, and I feel the need to ease the burden of my heart.

After eighteen months of internship abroad, which has now come to an end, I thought I’d developed a strong doctor’s personality that would help me administer my professional duties in an efficient and unemotional manner.

I have seen many patients die every week in the ER (Emergency Room) due to life threatening injuries but they don’t have an emotional affect on me anymore. I end my shifts, take a bus to my rented apartment, too tired to give them a thought, too tired to think about anything else except food and sleep.
I never thought I’d admit this but I’ve become desensitized to the injuries, illnesses and suffering of the patients; they don’t teach you in school what you end up learning during your medical practice.

So it happened that on the last day of my rotation at the Burn Hospital, I went to the OR (Operating Room) just before the anesthesiology resident was about to sedate the patient. I found before me a young man lying on the operation bed with a small piece of cloth covering his genitalia.

I recognized him from the morning ground rounds. He was admitted due to high-voltage electrical burn injuries involving his lower extremities.

I tried as much as possible not to look at his burned legs and greeted him and asked if everything was ok but he kept quiet, looking straight up at the ceiling, pretending I wasn’t there.

At that awkward moment two surgeons entered the room, one introduced himself as a plastic surgeon, the other a general surgeon who was a specialist in burn injuries. They told the patient, “We’ll try to save your right foot but due to widespread tissue infection it may not be possible.”
Then they informed him about the surgery and started drawing lines on his back along the places where they were going to take grafts.

Plastic Surgeon: **asked the patient** How much did you weight before the accident ?
Patient: 76 kg
Surgeon: and now?
Patient: 57 kg
Surgeon: Sadly you have no good graft skin on your back! We’re going to take some extra skin off your shoulders.
The patient responded with a deafening silence to this piece of information regarding his operation.

As I took one last look at the patient, I understood why he kept quiet all the time. His eyes were full of tears and he put a shaking hand over his mouth to stop his muffled sobs from being heard.

I wanted to say something to comfort him but couldn’t find the words. Nothing I could say or do would ease his pain. It’s understandable: losing a part of your body is one of the worst things that can ever happen to you.

I left the operating room to give him a few minutes of privacy to cry, and to give myself some time to settle my own emotions.

During the surgery I was called out of the OR to visit outpatients at the burn clinic and I didn’t have a chance to see the patient again. I heard only later that the surgery ended with the amputation of his left leg and reconstruction of the right one.

Next day, I started a new rotation at another hospital.

Imagine Person A of your OTP gets a small cut on their arm/leg and person B starts freaking out and rushes to get a roll of bandages and, once they get it and return to A, they proceed to wrap the whole arm/leg in bandages.

Scientists create sensory neurons from human skin cells in the lab - Could help with spinal cord injuries

By Kristin Baldwin, Ph.D. - 

A team led by scientists from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has found a simple method to convert human skin cells into the specialized neurons that detect pain, itch, touch and other bodily sensations. These neurons are also affected by spinal cord injury and involved in Friedreich’s ataxia, a devastating and currently incurable neurodegenerative disease that largely strikes children.

The discovery allows this broad class of human neurons and their sensory mechanisms to be studied relatively easily in the laboratory. The “induced sensory neurons” generated by this method should also be useful in the testing of potential new therapies for pain, itch and related conditions.

“Following on the work of TSRI Professor Ardem Patapoutian, who has identified many of the genes that endow these neurons with selective responses to temperature, pain and pressure, we have found a way to produce induced sensory neurons from humans where these genes can be expressed in their ‘normal’ cellular environment,” said Associate Professor Kristin K. Baldwin, an investigator in TSRI’s Dorris Neuroscience Center. “This method is rapid, robust and scalable. Therefore we hope that these induced sensory neurons will allow our group and others to identify new compounds that block pain and itch and to better understand and treat neurodegenerative disease and spinal cord injury.”

The report by Baldwin’s team appears as an advance online publication in Nature Neuroscience on November 24, 2014.

Imagine your OTP have been in a relationship for several years, possibly married for a few of them. One day they get in a car accident, and Person A loses all the memories of the past few years- who became president, movies that came out, everything including their relationship. Person B does their best to help the other out. After some time, Person A remembers something- but it’s of when they thought they walked in on person B cheating on them.
