so i put it to good use

Idk, I'm still not at all interested in this season of TO. I just feel like they keep lying to us about everything. They said last year that Haylijah were finally over for good and tried to put the blame on Trump. I was so glad they were finally done, so if they're not I just can't get excited about the show at all.

How can someone be a good patient? I'm in the hospital a lot more than I'd like but I always try to say thank you and not use a call light unless I really need help with something, but I know nurses put up with so much and I wish there was something more I could do.

Dear Anon,

How can someone be a good patient? That’s a tough question and the true answer is likely more complex than the response I will provide. 

A good patient can mean different things to different nurses, but I’ll try to hit what I believe are the highlights and let the rest of Tumblr nursing community fill in the gaps.


Yes, your medications may be scheduled at 9 a.m., but in most facilities, nurses can give that medication an hour before or after it’s scheduled time. This is because nurses have many other tasks and cannot always administer medications at the exact hour they’re due. And if there is a code on the floor, your nurse will likely be tied up for a considerable amount of time and may be late with your meds. Those situations are rare, but can and do happen.

Some nurses will disagree with this next tip, but I think it’s important as your healthcare provider: ask questions about your medications. I usually review the medications and dosages with my patients to make sure everything checks out with regards to their home medications. There have been a couple of times where I’ve had a patient tell me that they take more or less than the hospital-prescribe dosage and after checking with the medical team, we found a mistake had been made and the dosage adjusted. Some nurses prefer that a patient just be quiet and take the medication because the med pass will go faster, but that’s not in the best interested of the patient.

You, as a patient, have a right to refuse any medication. Do not just swallow pills without knowing why. Don’t ever let a member of your healthcare team tell you that you “have to take this,” because as long as you are of sound mind, you have the right to refuse any medication or treatment. Again, this isn’t what some nurses want to deal with, but a good nurse will be patient with the patient (ha!) and try to explain the need for the medication.

Call Bell

The call bell is not room service or a direct line to a concierge. It’s a hospital, not a hotel, contrary to what HCAHPS scores (I hate them with a passion) encourage. If you need to use the bathroom and require assistance, use the call bell. If you have new onset of pain or other symptoms, use the call bell. If you’ve had an accident in the bed, use the call bell. If it’s something truly urgent, use the call bell. If it can wait until we check in on you, then perhaps wait. Of course, this is all common sense if you ask me and I don’t think this advice will do anything to change how patients behave. Those with common sense and respect for their medical team will not use the call bell except when needed. And those who abuse the call bell and feel entitled will continue to use the call bell excessively and become annoyed and unpleasant if their “needs” are not met immediately.

Respect the Nurses

Most people seem to think that nurses work for the doctors. Wrong. Nurses work with the doctors. I can’t speak for all nurses, but I have eight years of college, one year of residency, and more than 1400 clinical hours before I even sat for my national licensure exam (NCLEX). I am known throughout the medical team as having the most thorough physical exams of any nurse or doctor at my hospital. As a result, I’ve had doctors come back to re-examine a patient and find previously undiagnosed conditions. While I am still learning (we never stop really), I know my shit and I’m good at my job. Just because I chose not to become a doctor does not mean that I am not intelligent. 

Doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, X-ray techs, lab techs, PT/OT, respiratory, and many others make up a collectively highly-trained and educated medical team. Medicine is NOT an exact science. We do our best to treat what we believe to be the cause of your condition, but sometimes it takes some time to find the true etiology of an illness.


It sounds to me like you are a good patient. The type of patient a person is depends largely on what kind of human being they are. If a person is an asshole outside of the hospital, they’ll probably be an asshole in the hospital. If a person is kind, thoughtful, and respectful outside the hospital, they’ll probably be the same as a patient.

That being said, I think by educating all patients - and not that bullshit brochure patients get when they’re admitted - but a true, come-to-Jesus, heart-to-heart education, we may be able to have better overall patient/medical team interactions and experience.

Thank you for the question! I know this answer may seem longer than I initially let on, but it’s still just a drop in the bucket of what I could write. I’m hoping the nursing community on Tumblr (nurblrs) will contribute to the discussion.

My friend, colleague, and fellow Harry Potter fanactic @freshrn wrote a book titled “Admit One: What you must know when going to the hospital” that addresses this topic. Check it out!

I get called a cracker all the time by exclusionists! And it's so fucking triggering, as a native person who has had their ethnicity violently denied pretty much their entire life. I just want to scream every time it happens. I'm not white, and I have that information easily available on my blog.

Holy shit

I’m so sorry you have to deal with this.

I also put it right at the top of my blog I’m not white after the first time sth like that happened and still it was a frequent thing for a good while (which at first seriously messed with me), but then again those nasty racists who pull this made such a huge effort to pretend aces/aros/anyone who supports us are all white with a few “tokens” bc erasing and treating like shit ace and aro PoC is acceptable to try and shut up our communities they hate so much

And yeah sorry you have to deal with that shit you deserve better

So we know that Damian is really good at finding out a person's desire. Maybe it was used to exploit their target back at the LoA. But lately he's been using it to give heartfelt presents. I can't help thinking that if he found out that Steph was pregnant once and put the baby up for adoption, he might search for the baby. Maybe he would take several pictures of her and make it into an album and gave it to Steph. Its a nice thought.

Ow, this really breaks my heart </3 

I miss their interactions so much and I think this would be something that 1) he would definitely do and 2) they really could bond over, given Damian’s issues with his own mother. 

I’d love for Stephanie to get to see that her baby is happy and growing up safe and loved, for her to be 100% sure that she did the best thing she could. And I’d love for Damian to realize that blood ties only count so far, and that an adopted family is just as good as any other family.

kagome being elizabeth's maid/bodyguard instead of ciel's headcanons please (i hope eveything gets better over there)

Thank you. It’s a slow process and grief is coming on and off pretty randomly, but I’m adjusting, I guess. Anyway, I’m iffy with this piece, but I couldn’t think of many ideas for your request. Still, I hope it’d be a good read!

This got long so this got the cut. For mobile users, please use your browser app to read!

here’s all the prompts–i’m only taking kuroshitsuji and castlevania requests for a time being.

Her mother was scary. She hated how the woman would always pigeonholed onto her for every little slight offense. Never mind the fact that she would put a bullet in the damn woman’s head quicker than she could draw out her blade.

But, there are mutual respect in between them, even if it doesn’t always look like it. There was a reason why she was hired to stick close to Young Lady Elizabeth. Although Elizabeth was indeed a prodigy in her own rights (more so than her own brother), with blades, she was still soft-hearted—something that Lady Midford was continuing to work on.

This came about only because Elizabeth trusted a wrong person, the person who was responsible for the death of her previous lady-in-waiting, Paula.

Lady Midford managed to keep the reasons behind the poor woman’s death a secret from her grieving daughter, to prevent any unnecessary guilt—they were quite close. Seeing her daughter’s frailty she decided to take advantage of her old Phantomhive connections, to find someone suitable to guard her daughter. And, so, there she was—Kagome who worked with the previous head of the Phantomhive years ago, as his personal assassin.

While beautiful in a subtle sort of way, Kagome looked as meek as they came and was easy to be underestimated. Jack of all trades, master of the few. Even Francis took a step back when Kagome demonstrated her skills on her demands—she was hired immediately.

Kagome wished Lady Midford hadn’t picked her.

Interviewing your Crystals

This is a fairly simple spread that I came up with after buying some new crystals and not really knowing what to do with them. This is just one of the many ways you can get to know your crystals and find out how to put them to good use!

1. What are your energies?
I consider this to explain the overall ‘personality’ of the crystal. If you aren’t great at sensing energy, or can’t get a fix on the energy, this could help you.

2. What can you heal/cleanse?
So many people use crystals for healing and cleansing themselves, spaces, etc. Consider this the form of cleaning your crystal is best at.

3. In what ways can you fit into my practice?
There are so many hundreds of ways to use crystals! If you like to have specific crystals for specific things, this will help a lot.

4. What lessons can be learned from you?
Meditating and scrying with crystals can show you many things, and sometimes there are lessons to be learned. There might be a specific message this crystal wishes to get across. 

As an added note, you can also use the first card to figure out what the crystal’s associations might be (that is if you’re like me and don’t always feel like common crystal associations fit 100% of the time).

Feel free to tag me or let me know how this spread works! It worked pretty well for me, and I’d love to see what other people think!!!

Robert Downey Jr.’s been on a pedestal with me since I was a very young man. I’ve just always admired him and been a fan. And I’ve said for years and years and years that I hope the crossover happened because I thought that Drax would have such great interactions with Tony Stark and Robert Downey Jr. And it just all kind of came to fruition and actually it’s gonna happen and it’s good. It’s really good! It’s better than I ever thought it would ever be. I’m really excited.

Immediately (there’s chemistry between us). And here’s the thing– I went to the premiere in London for Avengers 2, and Robert went out of his way to come and meet me and say how much he loved me in the first (Guardians) film and that meant the world to me. So that put me at kind of an automatic comfort level with him.

So as soon as we hit the stage, man, there was no pressure there, there were no walls, I just felt like this guy was very supportive of me and I felt very comfortable with him. I think that’s just him. He’s a very giving actor all across the board. But just for me personally, I felt totally at ease with him and it makes for great chemistry when you’re comfortable with someone.”

Spirit-B-Gone Powder

This is a powder designed to quickly banish a spirit, while neutralizing any of their attempts to harm you. It is not designed to play nice, so keep that in mind when deciding when to use it. Hopefully you will never need it. (Though if you DO use it, I’d love to hear about your results since by nature it’s something I kind of avoid thoroughly testing!)

I mix them intuitively, so the amounts are whatever feels right. Generally this takes more salt, though.

  • Salt (Protection, banishing)
  • Pepper (Banishing, protection)
  • Chili Powder (Banishing)
  • Grey Salt (I make this the same way as most black salt recipes, with the ashes of incense. Grey is neutralizing.)
  • Cayenne Pepper (Banishing, adds strength and speed)
  • Ginger (Banishing, adds strength and speed)

Put it in a bottle or container and give it a good SHAKE!!

Angel in the Darkness (M) pt.7

Originally posted by aestheticvbts

Summary: After a patient urgently pleads you to go and help a friend of his, you naively agree to it. Little did you know, that you would get more than what you agreed to, when he leads you to a brothel, to help a dangerous prostitute named Jeon Jungkook.

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader (ft. Jin, but not romantically)

Genre: Smut (M), angst, mafia!au, prostitution!au

A/N:This is a dark and filthy story! Graphic descriptions of sex (masturbating, etc), heavy dom/sub undertones, drug use, vulgar language use……(alot of smut comes in later) This is a mature read! You have been warned!

part 1 | part 2 | part 3 | part 4 | part 5 | part 6 | part 7

The air conditioning caused the dimly lit room to be abnormally cold, as Jin slightly shivered. He was sitting with his hands forming fists, while his father gave him a stern look.

He didn’t want to be here, that was for sure. He knew his father must have started to become suspicious of him, since it was taking an unusually long time for him to locate Jungkook and you. So when he got another message that his father wanted to see him – he couldn’t stop shaking.

What was he supposed to say? He couldn’t keep lying and give his father the same answer of ‘they are close.’ No, that definitely wouldn’t work this time, as he could tell with the look his father currently gave him.

“Son,” his father spoke with a grim voice. “How stupid do you think I am?”

Even though Jin was nervous, he managed to pull off his infamous poker face as he replied, “What ever do you mean?”

“Save your lies for someone else Jin,” the greying man mocked. “You may be able to fool others, but certainly not me. Now tell me where they are. Now.”
