Colleague: This little boy I saw today – you saw him last year when he had a rash and fever, and you thought it was early chickepox or another viral rash. Did you know it later turned out to be Serum Sickness-Like Reaction from amoxicillin?
Cranquis: What? Man, I don’t even remember what that condition presents like.
Colleague: I didn’t either! Here’s an UptoDate article on it.
Cranquis: Thanks. (reads article) Oh man, that kid DID have all these symptoms. I totally missed the SSLR diagnosis!
Colleague: Don’t feel bad, I would’ve missed it too.
Scene II: 4 hours later, Cranquis in a different patient’s exam room
Patient: So I woke up with a painful bumpy rash over my joints this morning and felt feverish, and my knees hurt.
This is only HALF of the tape it takes for me to be able to dance. I also able to wear a knee support too. It’s normal for me and everyone in my dance class now but when I stop to think about it, I can’t help but be proud of myself!
6 years ago I was told I’d never dance again. Not to dance again. My physio still stands by this. I have a bone condition that means with every movement,my joints slip in and out of place.
Does it hurt? Oh boy yes. The smallest things like texting or walking or brushing my hair hurt. But I couldn’t leave dancing.
It means I go home after class, strap myself up with ice packs and hot water bottles, lie on the sofa crying with pain, but it’s worth every minute.
I am a fighter and I will achieve what I want to in life. No condition will stop me.
Hi friends, as some of you may have figured out from a few things I post sometimes- I have EDS. (Ehlers-danlos-syndrome) I am quite lucky in that it doesn’t massively effect me on a day-to-day basis, however it does make me tired, my fingers dislocate (note the splints) and my joints generally hurt quite a bit if I stand up for too long etc. For those of you who know about EDS, there are different types which effect people in different ways. I suffer mainly from types 1 and 3 - hypermobility and classic. (Classic effecting the collagen in skin so I don’t heal as well and I scar really badly. Hypermobility it basically what it sounds like - I’m flexible.) I decided to share this because for the most part, EDS is invisible, this makes it really hard for people both to be diagnosed and recognised for the fact they are just as disabled as someone who is visibly handicapped. Anyway, thanks for reading. Have a great disabled day of visibility!
“I am a maniacal worker, and if you’re not working as hard as I am, I am going to let you know about it. That’s why Shaq and I still have a good relationship: He knows I have zero fear of him. I would tell him what he was doing and what he wasn’t doing. And vice versa. There were times when we absolutely could not stand each other. We could not be in the same room together. But we challenged the shit out of each other.
He had years where he was lazy. But during those three championships we won? To say he was a beast would be an understatement. To say I didn’t learn things from him that I still use to this day would be a disservice. To be fair, I think what happened is that, as you get older, your body starts breaking down, and you have to really love the process in order to get through that.
Like, right now, I hurt. My ankle joints, my knee joints. My back. My thighs are sore. But for him, with his big toe and his knee, it became very hard for him to get up in the morning and push through those things. He might not have been as willing to do those things at the time, and I wasn’t thrilled about that.” - Kobe on Shaq.
I was prepared to get angry, but I literally I have these hot waves of anger going through me, and for some reason, it’s making my joints hurt? I haven’t felt this enraged in a long time.
My heart goes out to the people of Ferguson. I wish there was more that I could do. If anyone knows of any kind of outreach or aid program that’s legitimate, PLEASE let me know.
This is an American problem. If you are an American citizen and you’re turning a blind eye on this, you’re one step closer to being the next victim. Ferguson police are breaking the law. They know they are breaking the law. They are throwing down their badges and removing their name tags. They know that they are no longer upholding their oath to serve and protect. If you are not outraged by this, you should be.

Pairing: Poe x Reader
Notes: Every joint in my body hurts… I have a cold… Poe come take care of me s’il vous plait….
“Y/N” She looked over her shoulder and saw Poe running along with BB-8. Y/N turned around to put the last bag into the X-Wing, she was taking for her mission.
“Did my aunt, forgot to tell me something?” Y/N inquired gazing at Poe, he had his hands over his thighs trying to regain his breath.
BB-8 beeped “No, then what is it?”
“You can’t go, is too dangerous. At least let me go with you” Poe declared gazing at her.
“We have been already over this Poe, I am going to do it alone. I don’t want to risk anyone else” Y/N said.
The reality was that… she doubted her magic tricks, as Han had been calling them. Yes, the famous Luke Skywalker was her father… but he has left when she was just a baby and had no training whatsoever if she failed, at least it would not cost more lives hers only, but who cared… her father didn’t…. at least Han and Leia would be sad about it.
“But before you go, I need to confess something to you” Poe said holding Y/N’s hand.
“Bird boy, didn’t you have a meeting with the General” Han said behind them. Y/N pulled her hand out of Poe’s grasp.
Y/N felt Poe’s dismay at the interruption of her uncle. “Are you going to stop me from going too?” she asked rolling her eyes putting her back against the metal stairs of the X-Wings she crossed her arms.
“No, I wanted to tell you that you must be careful. I don’t want to give a piece of to your father” Y/N scoffed at the mention of her father. “Whether you like or not, Luke is your father” Han scolded Y/N.
“Yeah and I am Sith. Can I go?” Y/N asked looking at Han.
“Don’t say things like that Y/N. Being a user of the force is a great responsibility” Han said.
“Tell that to my father. Now, if you finish lecturing me; I have a mission to complete” Y/N said with a small smile. “May I go?”
“Yes, but remember don’t do anything stupid” Han said embracing her softly. “Remember your father loves, he may not be present but he left for your safety”
“Hmmm…” Y/N nodded and Han step back.
“Let’s get going Chewie, we don’t want the princess to start crying” Han smirked and Y/N narrowed her eyes at him.
“Psh… you wish” Y/N said waving her hand as Chewbacca and Han walked away. She turned her attention to Poe. “You wanted to tell me something?”
“No, is alright. It can wait until your return” Poe said smiling at her, Y/N frowned she felt a wave of sadness, maybe it was because she will gone for a long time she thought with a smile. “Okay then, I am not good with goodbyes” she said awkwardly looking at the floor.
“I know” Poe smiled putting his hand out to her. “Until then, Ms. Skywalker” he said with a smirked.
Y/N rolled her eyes and shake Poe’s extended hand. “Until then, Mr. Dameron. BB-8” she bend down a place a kiss into its spherical head.
“Why didn’t I get a kiss?” Poe said with a fake pout. “I thought I was your favorite”
“Keywords, was; Mr. Dameron. Take care, I will came what I want to know that confession of yours” She said climbing the steps to her X-Wing. “Later” she sat in her seat and as the cabinet closed she could swear she heard Poe whispering she loved her. “Most have been the wind”
“No way” Y/N gritted her teeth as she was dragged through the metal corridors. “I am lady, I should be treated with respect” she hissed, then she was pushed roughly into a cell.
“Shut up” one of the Stormtroopers said.
“Make me” Y/N said with a smirk, but she only received a slap from the Stormtrooper. “Now, give the keys” she said after taking a deep breath and closing her eyes.
“Here are the keys” The Stormtrooper said handing her the plethora of metal keys.
“You will go and tell, that I have escaped after five minutes” Y/N said feeling a slight headache forming in the back of her head.
“Got it” Y/N smirked as she put the memory stick into her boot. “Now…” she growled when red lights started to flash above her.
“The prisoner has escaped, you’re authorize to shoot and kill” an electronic voice announced through the intercom.
“Great” she mumbled looking for an escape root. “Air vents, it is”
Y/N stood in the vast forest looking around for her X-Wing. “I should have put an alarm on it” she whined looking at the empty spot.
“General, a word” Poe asked at Leia wholooked a the stations of the First Order in the outer systems.
“What is it?” Leia inquiered.
“Y/N’s , X-wings it was shot down” Leia sat in the closer chair she was too.
Han entered the command center joking with Chewbacc when she saw Leia with tears in her eyes. “What happened?” Han said kneeling in front of her.
“Y/N, X-wing was shot down” She whispered looking at the ceiling. “I…”
“No, it can’t be. She… that planets is filled with scanvangers maybe one of them…” but Han stopped at the shaking of Leia’s head.
“Then I will go, I am going to find her” Poe said he ran even before Leia and Han could opposed to the idea.
Y/N moaned in pain, she had fallen down a very step hill. The first thing she checked that the memory drive was safe. Breathing hurt, she closed her eyes, she really didn’t what to know what happened.
Taking a breath she looked down, she grimaced. Her leg was at a weird angle. “Okay, breath” she took her leg and looked up the sky. “Son of a–” she shouted bending her leg back in place. “That’s not good” black spots started to feel her vision.
“The last coordinates send by the droid said she landed here” Poe said looking around the vast forest. BB-8 beeped and Poe looked at the direction it had pointed. “You have a tracker in her belt”
“Why didn’t you tell me?” Poe frowned down at the droid. “Yeah, asking if you have a tracking device had been the first thing it come to my mind, BB-8”
BB-8 ignored the calls of warming of Poe, it stopped at the edge of the hill. “That’ s a big fall, BB-8. If you want to kill me, do it a less painful way”
“Poe” Y/N heard someone shout it sounded just like him.
“What?” Poe looked closer to the edge and she saw her. Y/N was laying against a rock waving her hand to him. “Y/N, wait there; don’t die yet” he shouted looking to his sides finding a way down.
Poe and BB-8 had difficulty going down the hill. Finally at the last meters Poe started to run. “Y/N, wake up” he tapped lightly her cheek. Y/N slowly opened her eyes and looked at him. “Hey”
“Hey, I am dead, right?” Y/N said, she felt so lightweight and no pain was present in her body.
“No, you’re badly injured” Poe said looking at the injuries in Y/N. It looked like she had taken all the fall in her leg. “I am going to take you back to the base, alright” softly he carried her to the Y-Wing.
Y/N wake up at the sound of the rhythm of her heart. She opened her eyes slowly, they felt heavy. “Ms. Skywalker” a robotic voice called her.
“Yeah, that’s me” Y/N said rubbing her eyes. “Where I am?”
“The medical bay” Poe responded, as he cranked his neck. “My neck” he whined with a grimace massaging his neck he looked at her.
“He has been all the three days” The droid nurse told her checking the vitals in the monitor above her. Another droid check at Poe who whined about his neck.
“Oh” was Y/N response.
“Nice necklace” Y/N said as Poe sat beside him, with a neck brace.
“This is all your fault, I am doing it because I love you so damn much” Poe said without realizing what he had said to her. “What? I look hideous I knew it” he mumbled under his breath, “Why are you blushing?”
Y/N cheeks were red and her heart beat harshly against her ribcage. The heart monitor went crazy. “Nurse, I think she’s having a heart attack. Y/N look at me” Poe said taking her head in his hands.
“I think I just had the adventure of a lifetime” Y/N said looking at Poe.
“Wh-” Poe was cut off by the soft lips of Y/N on his. He dumbly looked at her.
Did a light upper body workout with a side of some core work this morning to get the blood flowin. I can’t do any kind of pressing or overhead movements but things like rows and curls/pushdowns don’t hurt at all. My regular doctor said it is most likely my AC joint that’s injured because only certain movements hurt and the muscles in my delt are fine (still tryna find an ortho that accepts my insurance & specializes in shoulders), and he said I can still do any movements that don’t cause pain to help my strength, but I’m still takin it pretty easy and giving my upper body more rest than usual so I can heal up!💪🏼 (at Bev Francis Powerhouse Gym)
People don’t understand what I mean when I say I can’t sit
still too long. I say that as a way to make them understand, people know what it’s
like to be restless. In reality, I can sit still all day, I prefer not to but I
can. It’s my mind I can’t keep still, I can’t focus on one subject, mentally I have
to keep moving. I can’t sit through a movie, I can’t focus that long. It’s hard
to have a conversation I hate to keep changing the subject, I’m sorry but I got
bored I couldn’t talk about it anymore. When every joint in my body aches and
moving hurts my mind just keeps going sometimes I wish I could get it to slow
This was me- yesterday.
The coffee today is just as good, but my face, well… not so much. I’m kind of in a mood….. gonna dump my brain for a few.
- I need new music for working out. I’m in such a rut. Please leave suggestions.
- My hips are hurting from added cardio and “lean joints”. As you can see, I’m sitting rather awkwardly to loosen up my hip region.
- I haven’t been sleeping well at all.
- I want to bake a cake. Someone request something.
- My 16 yo cousin has been in Johns Hopkins Hospital for way too long. I just want him to get better.
- I’ll leave with something positive… hmmmm…. OK- things for which I’m thankful: banana peppers, air conditioning, cinnamon swirl dessert delights gum, quality friendships at work, healthy children, icy hot (despite the crotch debacle).
