*allergies

anonymous asked:

What are the allergies of the wired characters?

avera has a chocolate and nickel allergy, zavdiel and nitram have a dust/pollen allergy
maeve and jingshun are allergic to alcohol; erebus is allergic to fur
travis is allergic to particular types of flowers; carrion is allergic to milk

1. Fist: Make a fist around the epi-pen, don’t place your thumb/fingers over either end

2. Flick the blue cap off

3. Fire. Press down into the outer thigh (the big muscle in there), hold for 10 seconds before removing (the orange cap will cover the needle). Bare skin is best but the epi-pen will go through clothing. Avoid pockets and seams. 

- Ring an ambulance even if everything seems to be fine!

More info for those who have asked - 

  • Bare skin is best, but epi-pens go through clothes so don’t stress too much over that
  • Always, always ring the paramedics after using an epi-pen or even have someone else do it straight away. Another dose may be needed which paramedics can administer. 
  • Location, location. Apologies if outer thigh was a bit vague! If you stand up and allow your arms to hang by your side where your fingers fall against your leg is a great place. 
  • Legal issues, in Australia first aiders are protected by a Good Samaritan Act whereby the provision of reasonable assistance to those injured or ill is protected by law. I’m unsure how this translates to around the world but I’ll do some research 
  • Thank you all for reblogging and getting this message out there, and also for sharing your stories! A lot happened while I was asleep but you definitely made my day and could very well have saved someone else’s just by sharing some information and getting educated! Thank you!
On Doctors and Dates

I just broke up with my allergist, and the reception lady seemed really surprised. But I have the same rules for doctors as I do for dates which is that I need:

1. To feel respected 2. To feel like they are listening 3. For them to be polite

That’s my minimum of what I need in any sort of relationship, and this doctor was 0 for 3, so I dumped her.

I’m not all about telling people how to live life, but mine improved so much when I adopted these rules and I highly recommend them

Humans are weird

I saw a similar post about how humans could have the widest variety in diet. Which got me thinking - allergies.
What if although aliens didn’t eat very much, everyone could eat it?
So everyone gets very confused when, told that humans will eat ANYTHING, encounter Human Sarah who tells them she can’t eat ‘peanuts’ and Human Steve who can’t eat 'kiwi’.
When asked why this happened, they simply shrug and say “my body messed up and thinks it’s poison”
All the aliens are left feeling really confused - they can consume actual toxins, but when some are faced with our staple food, can die?

Do you ever just…just sit down and cry, at the goodness of people. Like your heart is breaking from gratitude and hapiness.

Yea? Yea.

Thank you, @dracota, from the absolute bottom of my heart. I really don’t know what to say except that you’ve made a hard part of my life significantly easier. Like I cannot begin to convey how much this will alter what I am able to buy, and eat with the safety of knowing it’s not been messed with or contaminated before it gets to me.

I just…thank you. Profoundly and with all the love I have in my being. Thank you.

IF YOU WORK IN FOOD SERVICE AND SOMEONE TELLS YOU “I CAN’T EAT <BLANK>, CAN YOU PLEASE SEND THIS BACK AND MAKE ME A NEW ONE WITH NO <BLANK>, “ DO NOT JUST FUCKING SCRAPE WHATEVER IT IS THEY CAN’T EAT OFF THE DISH AND RE-SERVE THEM THE SAME PLATE. BRING IT BACK AND MAKE A NEW FUCKING DISH.

YOU CAN KILL PEOPLE.
YOU CAN TRIGGER A SERIOUS ALLERGIC REACTION.
YOU COULD BE HURTING SOMEONE WITH AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES OR OTHER DIET BASED ILLNESSES
DON’T. FUCKING. DO THAT.

'But some people can't go vegan because of allergies and intolerances!'

You’re absolutely right!
And how do we fix that?
A higher variety of vegan food.

What do we need to get a higher variety of vegan food?
A higher demand for vegan food.

How can you help to help create a higher demand for vegan food?

BY GOING VEGAN.

STEP.
UP.
YOUR.
GAME.
