Update on my dog: I called my friend up who knew what to do and had been studying on animal injuries came by today and bandaged him up. He also gave me extra gauze and medical supplies so I can put on fresh bandages in a couple of days.
He did say we should get him to a vet when possible, and once we have the money we will. But otherwise Trutta is okay.
Thanks for all the msgs and tips you guys gave me today. I was crying and in a panic. So your support really helped.
Idea (necessity) for Ibs, Ibd and other gastro effecting spoonies.
Keep in or very near your bathroom the following items, in a box or other easily accessible and movable location.
- an empty bottle or cup to be filled with water or electrolyte fluid.
- electrolyte sachets (any pharmacy or supermarket should have some)
- baby wipes (trust me, your bottom will thank you)
- Some form of soothing ointment for your bum. (Barrier cream or something. You’ll need it. Trust me)
- A small snack (and few biscuits/muesli bar or something. You could be there a while or need food to take medication with)
- 1 spare toilet roll. (Always have a spare for a midnight flare
- extra medication (you might be in the bathroom for a while, don’t want to miss a dose. Also, pain killers and nausea meds)
- a small stool/cushion/rolled up towel. (You’ll need something to put your feet on. raising your legs stops them from going numb, and is generally more comfortable)
- A book/puzzle book or other time passing hobby that is acceptable to do while on the loo.
- phone charger. (don’t lose your life line)
- a cardigan or small blanket to wrap around your shoulders (being cold and sick are a bad combination)
- sunglasses (I know this seems strange, but migraines are pretty nasty when you’re in a bright white bathroom and can’t reach the light switch.)
Add any more as necessary.

ALL I WANT EXTRA: A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SEX AND GENDER IN THE “ALL I WANT” OMEGAVERSE
I have put far too much thought into the pseudoscience of this story to keep it all to myself, but also didn’t want to make the read so specific that it became squicky, so I figured I would write a brief explanation of how sex and genders are determined in this little fictional verse and what constitutes a male vs female and an alpha vs beta vs omega.
(the timing of this entry is very much related to the content of the next scheduled chapter, in the event that anyone would like specifics on where exactly that syringe is going to be going)
Hey guys! Trying to raise a little extra money for some medical bills so I’m offering up 3 spots for a merpony YCH! It’s a $10 YCH and will be fully colored and shaded, and I can also do any species, so if you don’t want a pony, I can do something else! Thank you all so much and I hope to head from a few of you soon!
In college a couple of years ago I was an A-grade English Literature student who fucked it majorly in an exam just because of the pressure, which I do not deal with well. This was despite having extra time due to medical needs.
In the non-exam essay I got an A, in the mock exam I got an A, my tutor expected me to do well. I thought I would do well, too, but that’s how it goes.
I guess this is kind of related to your post (which I liked, so this isn't negative). I'm curious about how you feel about spoonies going into the medical field (i.e. I'm going to be a nurse)?
I definitely think this is a personal question and there will be lots of different comfort zones here. My opinion is that I LOVE spoonies in the medical field! The kindest doctor I’ve ever had was diagnosed with multiple chronic conditions and therefore was very understanding of me, and caught symptoms that my other doctor’s overlooked.
That being said, I would say it’s probably tough to be a spoonie in the medical field. There’s a lot of ableism in that particular career path and I have met people who have kept their severe conditions secret from their coworkers for fear of getting fired if word gets out about their disability. This is an extra hurdle that medically trained spoonies have to pass.
There’s also the thing to consider that medical jobs can be very physically taxing and with progressive conditions that may require lots of rest days, hospitalizations, and mobility aids, this can make any taxing job seem impossible.
Bottom line is that I would love it if all of my doctor’s were fellow spoonies, as I feel they would understand me better. But in a world especially built for able bodied medical practitioners, I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for disabled folks.
Considering the fact that he and scarlet witch are signed on for a multi picture deal, this already tells us that he may/may not make another appearance. However it could be in a form of a flashback to give more backstory. Nether less I retain the following theories.
My point is that Agent Hill mentioned that he has an increased metabolism. Would that include healing? Like how the flash broke his arm and it healed in an hour due to his fast metabolism. Pietro could already be healing but due to the fact he got shot multiple times he’d need the extra medical attention.
Also why would they put Pietro on a boat if he’d already perished? I get that its a respect thing but in (not all) some movies when a character dies thats it, no more shots they dissolve into the background as it goes up in flames and the story continues. They had a significant moment to show Pietro ‘dead’ on the boat while Hawkeye laid beside him. On a side note I thought this was symbolism of Hawkeyes death due to him bleeding out and laying next to someone already dead etc etc. But luckily, he lives to another day. (Plus him and him fam are too cute.)
I really hope they do bring Pietro back because 1. He’s damn cute. 2. He and his sister are damn cute. 3. He has the potential to become a very likeable character. 4. Imagine the interactions between the avengers and him, specifically Stark investigating his powers.
Stark prodded Pietros side with a pen.
“So how fast are you?”
Pietro shrugged. “I cannot say for certain. However-”
“Stephen Hawking was initially very disappointed when he learned that his assigned Doctoral Advisor was Dr. Dennis Sciama. Sciama was a brilliant cosmologist but at the time Hawking felt as though he’d been placed in the wrong field of research. However, Sciama who was known to put his students needs before his own, was always available for guidance and advice and soon proved to be like a second father to Hawking. After his initial diagnosis, Hawking went into a deep depression and it was Sciama who pulled him out of it and pushed him to continue with his work. Sciama even demanded that the Physics Department pay for Hawking’s physical therapy sessions so that he could work on his thesis without having to worry about paying for extra medical care. Hawking would always credit Sciama as the man who helped shape his career and he was always the first person Hawking called to rely any new scientific findings he may have happened upon.”
