i think i have nerve damage

“Were you a Slytherin?” Harry asked innocently.

Moody snorted. “Hufflepuff, if you must know. Class of 1951.” Then, Moody noticed the surprised expression on Harry’s face. “Does that surprise you, boy? That someone with my background could have been a Hufflepuff?”

“No sir,” Harry said sincerely. “I have great respect for Hufflepuffs. It’s just … you’re the first Hufflepuff I’ve ever met who, well, never smiled.”

The man gave his rasping laugh again, and the left side of his mouth crept upwards once more. “Nerve damage! From the same curse that cost my eye! The right side of my face is permanently incapable of smiling properly. In fact, Potter, I’ll have you know when I graduated from Auror Academy, Witch Weekly picked me for their Most Charming Smile Award.”

At that, Harry looked even more shocked.

“What, Potter?” the man said irritably. “Did you think Gilderoy Lockhart invented the damned thing?”

You woke up alone in your bed.

“Leonard?” You softly say, reaching your hand out searching the bed.

“I’m here, Y/N,” he responds from near where the table sat. The scraping of the chair on the floor indicated he got up and three steps later, the bed dipped with his weight and his warm hand covered yours. “How are you feeling, darlin’?”

Can we please talk about this for a second. Even for someone without nerve/joint/whatever pain, how the FUCK does this sound healthy? “You get a break say every 2 hours, you can sit for about 15 minutes,and get a one hour lunch break”.

Let’s break this down. That’s one hour and a half for let’s say an 8 hour shift. Doing the math with percentages, this means a cashier is still on their feet (standing) with minimal movement change (no stools, or a PATHETIC “fatigue mat” that is really only a few centimeters thick) for 80% of their shift. HOW THE FUCK IS THIS HEALTHY? 

I have talked to NUMEROUS cashiers who have said they’ve been diagnosed with osteoarthritis (a form of very painful joints), spider veins, and even nerve damage from being a cashier because their companies refuse to use proper ergonomics (the science to basically helping prevent work based injuries by taking preventative steps) to help their cashiers out. These cashiers were all in their 20s and 30s, by the way. 

This has always MYSTIFIED me. Why, oh WHY do people think that people standing with minimal movement for 80% of their shift is somehow healthy, even with minimal health problems? CEOs, I know we are just fucking numbers to you, but actually fucking talk to your cashiers. Look at the NUMEROUS studies showing how this is NOT HEALTHY AT ALL and is an anatomical time bomb for something bad to happen to us!

Killervibe 13 please! Love your writing btw :)

13. “You’re not okay.”

Cisco flinched and pulled away. “Your hands are so cold.”

“That’s the point.” Caitlin grabbed his arm and pressed her fingers against the wound. “Stop moving. I haven’t stopped the bleeding yet, and if you keep moving, you’re going to lose even more blood.”

He stared at his arm, fascinated and a little awed as ribbons of frost spiraled from Caitlin’s fingertips and across his skin. He’d gotten in an ugly tangle with a metahuman, but his real foe turned out to be the barbed wire fence behind them. Twenty minutes ago, his arm had been lacerated almost to the bone. He hadn’t gotten a good look at it- he tried once and almost passed out -but he had known from the frequency of Caitlin’s concerned tuts that it had been ugly. Now, it was still bleeding, but it was a much shallower cut. His skin was healing before his eyes.

“I’m sorry it’s taking so long,” Caitlin apologized. She tilted her head down and a clump of hair fell in front of her eyes. She dyed it constantly, but it always faded away within a couple of weeks. Currently, it was the lightest shade of strawberry blonde- in between her normal hair color and her frosty one. In addition to the dye jobs, she wore a lot of foundation and dark lipstick these days.

“Hey, it’s cool.” She shot him an exasperated glance through the curtain of her hair. He held a hand up. “No pun intended, I swear.”

“Sorry,” she said again, more quietly. She glanced down at the wound at his arm, scrutinizing it. “How does it feel?”


“Ha.” She pressed her fingers against the edge of the cut. “You have to tell me if it gets too cold. It would be pretty ironic if I caused nerve damage while I was trying to fix it.”

“It’s not too cold,” Cisco assured her. It felt kind of relaxing to have her cold fingers against his stinging, burning skin. If he laid down on that cot, he could almost fall asleep, but Caitlin would make him get right back up. “You have to admit, this is pretty sweet. The whole regenerative energy deal. It’s like you’re a time lord or something.”

“Or something.” Caitlin studied the wound. “I don’t think I could cut my own hand off and grow it back, though. That’s scientifically improbable.”

His heart pattered a little. “You remember that episode?”

“Of course,” she said primly. “I went evil, I’m not an amnesiac.”

Just my opinion, but I think the pendants are too small to be priced that high. Maybe if you have three at the least sold together instead of only one that would be a reasonable price.

1. I have arthritis, nerve damage and back pain so crafting things is a challenge for me esp this small
2. Small shells are fragile and more likely to break while wrapping. My mother also found each one of those shells, so they’re sentimental and I already broke a lot attempting to make these for my shop a few years ago.
3. I’ll never be making seashell pendants this small again (for the above reasons and more)
4. I’ve also never seen such small shell pendants being sold anywhere else
5. I also always donate a portion of my profits; sometimes I have to sell things a little higher or else I’d be loosing money (if I could afford to just give things away I wouldn’t need this shop to help me raise funds to donate).
6. “Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge… is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound purpose larger than the self kind of understanding.”
Try understanding first and please think twice about what you’re sending (and why).

Remember that your actions and feelings towards another say a lot more about you then it does about that person

Kay, so I know you've got a Zarkon analysis planned in the future BUT would you be willing to share thoughts on the possibility of a redemption arc/what that would all entail? Unlike previous incarnations he actually HAS proven to be genuinely good at a previous point

I think at this point, I don’t have enough information, mostly because… we don’t really know what motivated Zarkon’s turn. There’s a lot about what makes him tick that we don’t have the context to understand at this point.

The first thing I would probably set on is, hypothetical redemption arc for Zarkon would basically hinge on completely stripping away his power over other people. Not only because he’s hurt a lot of people and no one should be asked to sit back and remain patient while he’s still doing damage, but because that’s one of the cornerstones of what’s really unhealthy about Zarkon: he can’t trust anyone that he does not feel like he has under his complete control. Any time he can’t shout someone down or crush them under his heel, that’s deeply uncomfortable to the point that he will make arbitrary and inaccurate justifications.

anonymous asked:

could you please do a post about nerve damage in dog's ears, or point me in the direction of someone who could answer some questions about it? One of my dogs got her ear ripped up (she's a rescue, used to he a bait dog) and she has nerve damage in it, to the point she can't move it around, but I don't think her hearing has been affected. Can nerve damage improve/deteriorate over time? Will it ever affect her hearing? Do you think the lack of movement could make her more prone to ear infections?

Hello anonymous friend. Unfortunately I can’t comment specifically on your dog’s situation, only a veterinarian who has examined the dog can do that, but I can talk very generally about the nerves that are involved in dog’s ears.

Generally speaking a nerve that has been damaged by bruising or crushing might regain function over time, but if they have been severed or shredded, then it is extremely unlikely. It will probably not deteriorate over time after the damage has already been done.

Hearing is controlled by the vestibular nerve, which is internal. Movements of the external ear are controlled by branches of the facial nerve. So if your dog can’t move her ear, she could potentially still hear, just have less ability to pinpoint the direction of that noise.

A paralyzed ear probably wont predispose to ear infections, although scars in the ear canal itself might. It’s the diameter of the ear canal, whether the ears flop over and trap moisture, and how hairy they are that are common predisposing factors, not whether the external pinna can move.

I hate it when men brag about ‘oh man, Bro, i DESTROYED that pussy last night!’.

Pal, if a woman can push out a baby’s freakin bowling ball skull out of her vagina and be pretty intact afterwards then your baby carrot stick dick isn’t going to have any lasting impact.
You underestimate the power of the vagina’s elasticity and strength.

Also, you may want to ask yourself why you think leaving lasting damage on a woman’s body is something to be proud of…

aleena-jean-101  asked:

i haven't seen a lot of this in the Junkrat tag, but what are your haedcanons on Junkrat's phantom pain on his missing limbs. Do you think he sometimes has an itch on his missing foot or thinks his missing hand is balled up into a fist and his nails are digging into his phantom palm. And it just freaks him out because he's got pain in limbs that aren't there. Do you think Roadhog or Mercy helps calm him down?

hell YEA i do!!! HELL YEA I DO!!!

as someone whos gone through amputation and a ton of nerve damage i can say phantom pain is really fucking weird even YEARS later lmao- like, its been nearly 20 years since my accident and i still have random ‘phantom’ pains

Junkrat probably responds to his pain like he responds 2 everything else tho; fucking manically. he’ll start scratching his robot hand or flexing his robot fingers but it doesnt do anything, he’ll kick out his peg leg and try to rub where his knee was but it doesnt do anything either. all he can do is pop his prosthetics off and rub where his limbs end- its super frustrating. he probably talks to himself a lot and curses a lot, roll on his side to put pressure on his limbs to try and make the feeling go away- nothing works but waiting it out and, since junkrat is fucking impatient, its probably HELL for him to have to sit and WAIT for the feeling to pass 

i imagine Roadhog met Junkrat probably shortly after he lost his limbs- itd explain why he was so desperate for a body guard (desperate enough that hed split his treasure 50/50, when junkrat is pretty fucking selfish, id see that as pretty damn desperate). Roadhog probably watched Junkrat teach himself to walk again, use his left hand and build his limbs from scratch, but im sure the big guy was there to help him out if he needed it. junkrat’d probably tire out real fast for a long time from hobbling on an improvised pegleg, so Roadhog lending a hand for him to lean on, or just fucking carrying him if he needed it- yea i can see that being a thing. being there when Junkrat started feeling his first rounds of phantom pains was probably odd and made Roadhog feel a little sympathy for the first time in a LONG time- maybe he introduced junkrat to huffing petrol  as a temporary way to stem off pain lol 

on the field Mercy probably noticed it and does what she can. junkrats healing was probably not the best and she probably stepped in to see what she could do to fix him up where his body wasn’t completely ruined- but theres only so much she could do after having those wounds for years. I’d imagine even Lucio would step in to try and calm him down or help when junkrats struck with any sorta phantom pain, hed probably be one of the first ones (Besides Roadhog) to be like ‘Hey man, why not sit n take a breather’ and try and make waiting through phantom pain as easy as possible

tho junkrat is pretty damn tough i think after years of phantom pain, hed be pretty damn used to it, probably just struck with a few minutes of frustration vs being in like, ACTUAL pain. 

Post Sugery

It’s been 10 days since my wrist surgery and I feel fine… mostly. Couple days after surgery I started noticing a painful burning sensation in the palm of my hand. Tonight while sticking my fingers in my cast to try and scratch my arm I noticed that the palm of my hand and near my thumb feels weird, like a tingly sensation, like part of my hand is asleep. I didn’t think to much of it at first because I figured it was probably from being in the cast… and then it occurred to me that nothing else inside the cast feels weird.
I think I have nerve damage in my hand.
I guess it just makes me sad and frustrated.
Maybe it will get better once I start moving my wrist again or maybe I’ll be broken forever.
I don’t know if this is my first broken bone… I may have broken toes and I think I fractured my shin bone, but I never went to the hospital for those. So I guess I consider this my first broken bone. It’s scary kind of… to go 26 years feeling unbreakable and then to suddenly be broken and not just being broken but to not even be able to work.
Just frustrating… 😢

Fire and Ice (Part 5/?) (Bucky Barnes x reader)

Okay, I was asked to do a little more of this one, so here we go…

Part 4

If it had been any other adversary holding you to the ground with their foot pressed against your back so hard that you were sure that the bruises had already begun, you would have simply set their uniform ablaze in a retaliation that always worked. Unfortunately, you had promised to keep your powers quiet for this fight, relying only on your hand-to-hand combat skills against Steve to keep it fair.  Ever since the day you walked up to the compound doors to find Bucky, you had been battling the urge to take the Captain on again, finding him to have been one of your favorite enemies to date; your fights on the battlefield had always been lively and challenging, and you had missed them just a little. But now, with his boot pinching at your skin and tearing the cloth of your shirt, you began to rethink the respect that you had built up for the jerk.

Wtf is wrong with her lips? Is it just me or do they seem a little idk odd?

That’s what happens when you have a bad reaction to lip injections. I’m not being a bitch, she literally had lip injections done. Back when she first started dating Jared, a girl named Kelly was running a Cortese fan dedicated website and Cortese would do interviews with Kelly (one was on YouTube, the others were all done in person or by email). They even did a meetup at one point with Jared and fans came by and got their stuff signed/pictures taken. Anyhow, Cortese told Kelly about her experience with lip injections and how it caused nerve damage that was permanent. She never mentioned it beyond that interview, shocker.

Kelly since deleted the website and all the interviews were lost to us. It’s possible someone saved them but I have no idea. I personally think it’s doubtful considering no one actually likes Cortese and if they do I wouldn’t ask them about the plastic surgery because they’ll flip their shit. Like always.

All funned out

Kayaking was great. Peaceful to be on the water, fun to be with friends (30 people from my gym!) but it was too too early. Saturday’s are not meant to be known at 5am.

I think I’m getting a flu. Or maybe it’s just a week’s worth of lactic acid finally settling in from not lifting today….but there was all that paddling which made the damaged nerve in my arm act up so I had to hold the paddle weird which hurt my skin.

I am not even prepared for Father’s day tomorrow. I mean, I have all the “stuff” but I have been avoiding thinking about spending the day with my mother in law.

Tonight a friend of my husband’s was in town and brought his girlfriend for every one to meet and approve of because things are getting serious. She seemed really pleasant, like someone I would enjoy spending time with myself, but I’m not so sure about them together. I wish I could have seen them in a more authentic environment than a restaurant. Like maybe they could work on a car together? I dunno, but something stressful that would bring a very straight edge guy to the point of swearing and then you get to who people really are. The evening of conversation with actual adults was great but I’ve got this silent alarm going off that i can’t quite put my finger on.

In short, I am exhausted both physically and mentally. Socially, I’m just barely topped off.

Would you ever let someone eat your ass? Would you ever let someone suck on your toes? these things do not appeal to me, i personally think they are gross, but, i have just recently found two wrestlers id let do anything tbh id probably even let them hit it on the side of a taco kiosk, they bring out the freak in me. Do you have anyone like that?

1. With an ass the size of mine they’d fucking get lost in there lol.

2. It would be a waste of time cause some days I don’t have much feeling in my feet (I have nerve damage which can make my feet numb if I’m on them too long).

3. I want to say yes, there are 2, but then I’m quite a shy person so I don’t know if I’d ever be brave enough to do a lot of crazy things. Although lately there have been a few wild thoughts involving handcuffs, blindfolds, and a little light blood play that have snuck into my dreams (and I can’t believe I just admitted that on here lol)

Exam Stress

It’s that time of year again; Exams. Every year is the same. You always get yourself into a mess. Stressing out over every little thing. Not too long ago you were crying in the study because you couldn’t figure out an answer. It’s your first year at college, you have to make it count. You’re studying environmental science. You are one of the top students, but you believe that is more to do with your family background than your actual intelligence level. Something you’re really good at is doubting and putting yourself down. You are very bright, you just don’t see it.

“Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday dear (y/n), happy birthday to you.” The whole pack sang as Lydia and Kira placed the candle lit cake in front of you. You knew you were red, you weren’t one to constantly have the spotlight shining down on you and the pack knew that so they kept your birthday underwraps. 

The only ones here were the people you really cared about, in reality your birthday had been yesterday and your parents had thrown a huge party in your honor. You appreciated the gesture but it wasn’t something you truly enjoyed. You looked at the smiling faces around you and blew out your candles–wishing for this year to be better than the last, no murders, no demented alphas, no freaky spirits. 

“So what’d you wish for?” Scott asked while Lydia took the cake from you so she could cut it. “No, you don’t say what you wish for, if not it won’t come true.” Stiles said before you could tell your alpha. Your rolled your eyes and walked away from the two boys who were bickering as to whether or not that superstition was real. 

They decided to play a movie while everyone ate the cake, but for some reason you couldn’t focus on anything. Looking around the room you saw that several people were asleep and others were deeply immersed in the film, you saw this as your chance to sneak off by yourself.

You went outside by the Lake, Lydia was the one who decided to throw you the party and somehow she’d talked her mom into letting us use the lake house this weekend. You stood on the pier and looked out on to the water, you figured you had maybe ten, fifteen minutes before anyone came to look for you.

“Hey.” Liam said as he walked up behind you. You didn’t know much about the newest pack member, just that he had quite the temper and that he was very stubborn. 

“Hi.” You said moving aside so that he could lean against the pier too. He was tall, attractive, he was athletic–you’d seen that from the lacrosse games–you knew most girls would kill to be where you currently were but it didn’t really effect you.

“Happy birthday.” He said awkwardly, you chuckled. “Thanks, that’s original.” You said smirking up at him. “What?” He asked scrunching up his eyebrows. 

“I’m just saying, you follow me out on to the pier, the mood’s really romantic and all you say is ‘happy birthday’? You blew your chance to make an impact.” You said looking back to the lake. 

The stars were reflected on the waters’ surface and you loved the way it looked, it made you feel at ease. You felt like you could just leave the party, run away from Beacon Hills, start a new life as someone who wasn’t a werewolf. You could run away somewhere where no one knew your name or who you were.

“So what should I say?” He said making you snap back to reality. “Hmm?” You asked confused. “If I wanted to impress you, what should I say?” He asked.”I don’t know, something original, something funny, something that’s not awkward.” You said emphasising the last word. 

“Alright, fair enough. Do you wanna go out?” He asked. “That’s not funny.” You said sarcastically trying to hide your nerves. “It’s not supposed to be, I’m asking if you want to go out sometime.” You let out a small sigh. 

“Liam, look, that’s really nice of you, but I have issues, I’m messed up, trust me, you don’t want to date me. I’m damaged goods.” You said placing a hand on his arm. 

“I know we haven’t known each other for as long as you’ve known everyone else, but I think you’re amazing, from what I’ve seen they’re lucky to have you. And I know if you say yes I’d be lucky to have you as my girlfriend–”

“Girlfriend?” You asked shocked. “Aren’t you getting ahead of yourself there darling? I haven’t even agreed to the date yet.” You saw him take in a nervous breath. 

“I know, but I also know that I really like you, and I know where I want us to go. I want to be with you, but if you say no, I will back off and I promise things’ll go back to the way the normally are, but I just want to give us a shot–” You pulled him close to your and kissed him fiercely, you wished for a better year and this was the start of it, you didn’t want to waste an opportunity with him, not if it meant you could be happy. 

He wrapped his arms around your waist and lifted you so that you were sitting on the railing, you pulled him closer deepening the kiss. 

“(y/n), everyone’s looking for–Oh!” You turned to see Kira blushing and looking up to the sky trying to keep her eyes off of the two of you. You pushed Liam away and jumped down from the rail. 

You made your way to Kira but before you went very far Liam caught hold of your arm. “I’ll pick you up at seven.” He said not bothering to hide his smile. 

“It’s a date.” you said with a wink.

Requested by Anon

okay, serious question here

are there any forms of sign language accessible to people with missing/disabled hands, dyspraxia, etc?

I have been thinking I should probably take up signing as a basic communication tool (especially since I was originally taught Signing Exact English, which I later learned is basically a forceful imposition of spoken/written English grammar on ASL, which, I’ve read, not only slower/more cumbersome than ASL but kind of disrespects the fact that ASL is a perfectly valid language in its own right), but one of the reasons I did as badly as I did learning it as a child is that my left hand can’t move very quickly or dextrously due to some nerve damage going on there. I can’t even snap my fingers with my left hand, let alone do fine interpretive movements with it, and that messed with my ability to sign clearly. I honestly don’t even consider my left hand disabled in my daily life (though with this in mind I probably would if I were d/Deaf), but if that alone is enough to cause trouble with signing, how much trouble would someone with even more issues in one or both hands have trying to do it?

I’m not trying to slam sign language as a whole, but I feel like as an accessibility tool it’s still rather inaccessible to a lot of disabled people and I’m trying to figure out a workaround here.
