↳The world is crumbling into ruin. Armies are marching. Men and women are dying everywhere, in huge numbers. Fields are abandoned and towns deserted. The wrath of the Lord is upon us and He may be intending to destroy the whole of creation.

“Here, let me,” Mingyu says, using his hip to bump you away from the large pot of ramen bubbling on the stove. He takes the wooden spoon from you as you stand there looking offended, arms crossed.

“You always cook,” you huff, jumping up to sit on the counter beside him. He shrugs, grinning at the apron tied around your waist.

You know what story I’d like to see from the Harry Potter universe? A story where the Wizarding World and the non-magic world actually finally collide and work together and it’s… fine. Like, not perfect, obviously, but better than before because christ look at how much each world is keeping from each other! Well-trained magic-users could well be able to end diseases of the non-magic world; non-magic scientists could work out a way to banish Dementors, to restore souls even - science can already quite literally bring people back from the dead -

Natural disasters? Powerful magic users could potentially divert hurricanes and earthquakes, or at least minimize their damage. Your fantastic beasts have escaped? Well, we can use these satellites to pinpoint and track their locations. You wanna explore space, visit Mars maybe? The combination of cutting-edge science and cutting-edge magic can help with that. There’s so much potential there!

(There would be horrible things as well of course. A magic user gone rogue would probably be able to do a lot more damage than a non-magic user, for example. Things would probably be really tricky and terrible in the early days of this alliance. But ultimately, I really do think the positive would outweigh the negative.)

I don’t think this is a story JKR is ever going to write. I’d like to write it.

Summary: The Hanahaki Disease is an illness born from one-sided love, where the patient coughs up flower petals when they suffer from one-sided love. The infection can be removed through surgery, but the feelings disappear along with the petals. Hanzo Shimada is desperately in love with Jesse McCree -- the flower petals he coughs up whenever McCree so much as looks his way are plenty of evidence of that. It is unfortunate, then, that McCree utterly despises him.

Angst and unrequited love are my two favourite things about romance literature, discovering it in the form of this flower trope was strange and endearing. This work is extremely poetic without being corny.

taehyung’s smile could cure diseases and end wars; his smile is the embodiment of sunshine, a reminder that every part of him is unique and beautiful; taehyung’s smile can warm frozen hearts and bring happiness to saddened souls. taehyung’s smile makes one thing clear - his happiness alone is enough to change the world.

puvvythecat  asked:

Most Doctors and Nurses can't treat family members due to an obvious conflict of interest. If a medical professional had to work to save a loved one, how would their judgement be impaired and affect the situation, and ultimately, the patient's life?

Hey there! So, first of all, yes, it is generally considered unethical to treat your family members, except if they’re on extreme ends of the disease spectrum. The General Medicine Council (in the UK, but consistent with international opinions on this topic), says that, except for minor medical treatment and emergencies, doctors should avoid treating their own families or anyone they have a close relationship with. So stubbed toes and heart attacks are both fine to treat, but chronic diarrhea needs an outside doctor. Weird, huh?

Now, does that mean we don’t do this? Of course not. Most people in healthcare have snuck off to start an IV on a dehydrated coworker who had too much to drink last night, or given themselves an injection of an antiemitic if they’re feeling pukey. It’s just the way healthcare works. (I have never done this. I said “most”, not all. And no, this has absolutely nothing to do with the idea that I might get in trouble if my bosses found this blog. Why do you ask?)

Now, as to the meat of the question: emergency care of your loved ones. Man, healthcare workers go absolutely bananas when it’s their loved one on the line.

Look, we rely heavily on objectivity in the emergency arts. When it’s not our family, it may be an  emergency, but it’s not our emergency. And so instead of holy shit pain, fix the goddamn PAIN I can see the big picture: what’s likely injured, what the severity may be, and prioritize life-saving interventions over comfort measures. I can look past pain and see femur fracture, suspect blood loss, she looks clammy, where’s the hidden bleed, is her pelvis intact?  I can also balance pain against the fact that morphine decreases blood pressure, and if it’s the only thing i have on hand, it may do more harm than good. I also can remember to reach for ketamine instead.

Generally, if one of ours–our families, our close coworkers–if one of ours gets sick, we tend to overcompensate. We push our poor coworkers who are trying to help. We become the bossy family members we all absolutely hate. We are not chill when it’s one of ours, friends. Not. Chill. At. All.

That’s because we know what the worst is. We know what it is to watch someone die gasping, or stroke and never wake up. We know what the really bad stuff looks like. And we know the things that haunt us: what we don’t want. Our nightmares are different than everyone else’s.

So yes. Objectivity is compromised. We become every irrational family member we don’t want to have to calm down, except worse, because we know the procedures, we know what procedures do and don’t get followed, and we absolutely know the worst possible outcome. And it’s the absolute worst when the person who’s freaking out is a doctor, but not a useful one in emergencies. A proctologist, a derm doc, a shrink, a radiologist. When shit hits the fan, they’re worse than useless, because they think they remember something from their ER rotations in med school. This is… problematic.A lot of it also stems from helplessness; medical people are so used to being in charge, when we’re not and it actually matters we feel distressed.

I hope this post made any sense. Good luck with your story.

peculiar swedish diseases

The names of some diseases end with sjuka (sickness):

påssjuka - mumps (literally bag sickness)
magsjuka - stomach flu
mjältsjuka - melancholia
vinterkräksjuka - Norwalk virus
 (literally winter vomiting sickness)
sockersjuka - diabetes (literally sugar sickness)
blödarsjuka - hemophilia (literally bleeder sickness)

And some states of mind have names like diseases:

avundsjuka - envy
svartsjuka - jealousy
(literally black sickness)
gubbsjuka - being an older man chasing young women (literally old man’s disease)

It’s not a good idea to call in sick for gubbsjuka.

I’ve gotten a lot of comments since I posted my video last night about my journey with Crohn’s Disease, and I just wanted to thank all of you for your support. I wanted to make that video so that I could highlight something that often gets overlooked in the disabled community, invisible illnesses. I, like many others in the community, suffer from a chronic ailment that is often scoffed at and pushed aside since you cannot tell just by looking at me that I am sick. It’s usually not until people with invisible illnesses have a flare up with their disease and end up in the hospital that people actually think we are sick. 

I wanted to help put an end to that stigma against invisible illness today by sharing one of my cosplay photos, proclaiming my inclusion in the Crohnie community. I urge anyone suffering from an invisible illness to join this and share their own photos under the hastag “#Spoonie Cosplayers” with encouraging text to help end the stigma against people with invisible illnesses. It’s so heartwarming to see others talk about their illnesses that they would normally hide from the public in fear of being ostracized.

I am Colleen, I’m 22 and I am smart, caring, silly, sarcastic, fiercely loyal, a smart ass, a lover, an empath, and all about that self love. And you know what else I have HSV and I am still all the other parts of me, now I just have a new little slice of myself to own and love.

Please send your positive vibes/prayers to this courageous teen choosing to end her life. She suffers from a disease that leaves her in constant pain. The only physical strength she has left is in her fingers.. She uses this strength to spend most of her time playing the Sims.

I know I don’t have much of a voice in the simblr community but I do see all the negativity that gets thrown around.

Let this girl be a reminder that The Sims is an escape for everybody who plays. Behind the username and Sim avatar is a person with emotions and a beating heart just like yours. You don’t know what people are going through… The Sims may be someone’s last true Utopia. Dont take that away from them.

Reading her story was so inspiring and then learning she escapes with The Sims just about brought me to tears. I had to share her story with everyone.
