I've known for over a decade that i'm anemic. It didnt feel like a big deal because it never prevented me from doing the things i wanted to do.
I took Iron and Vitiam C supplements for a while but they made me feel sick so decided not to bother. Yeah, I require more sleep then most people but I exercise often, eat reasonably well, and consider myself healthy.
Recently, I had laproscopic surgery and the doctor (after seeing my blood results) scheduled me in for a fully funded Iron transfusion.
Iron deficiency occurs when the body doesn’t have enough of the mineral iron. This leads to abnormally low levels of red blood cells. That’s because iron is needed to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that enables them to carry oxygen around the body.
The transfusion experience took about 2 hours and the iron felt cold when it entered my vein. I didnt feel anything at first but then later on that day, I almost choked on oxygen. It was like a double breath, a breath s... keep reading on reddit ➡
Huge caveat to this! If you are in a life threatening emergency do whatever possible to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you. Do not endanger yourself by doing nothing!
Taking a deep breath and letting it out slowly stimulates the vagus nerve which can help to suppress some of the initial fight or flight reflexes that can cause inappropriate reactions or cause panic.
The best thing you can do in an emergency is remain calm, assess, and then react. Reacting on fight or flight instincts can cloud your judgment which could cause you to make the wrong decision or react in an inappropriate manner.

y’all like having your fun don’t you?
I’m looking for a game to play when I’m tired of sweating on Valorant or League of Legends. Something to really immerse me. Breath of the wild seems like a crazy adventure, but New Horizons looks very fun and relaxing. I’m a broke 17 year old so I’m really thinking it over lmao
EDIT: Wow you guys really like BOTW huh. In that case I have decided to buy Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Thank you. Ok but seriously I’ll play BOTW.
Guys! I didn’t like Twilight Princess. Just got a switch, loving kart and odyssey. On the fence with buying breath of the wild. Any mom Zelda fans out there who love it? Is it better than twilight? ⚔️
I've often heard that in a rapid depressurization of an aircraft cabin, you will lose consciousness within a couple of seconds due to the lack of oxygen, and that's why you need to put your oxygen mask on first and immediately before helping others. But if I can hold my breath for a minute, would I still pass out within seconds?
I think BotW is alright, but now I can’t stop thinking about how fun it would be to play it with a mate of mine. Anyone else ever thought this?
Edit: To clarify. I absolutely do not mean that the game has to be redesigned and focused entirely on co-op, I mean do you think it’d be cool if the game - AS IS - had an entirely optional two-player feature?
>You touch one willing creature and imbue it with the power to spew magical energy from its mouth, provided it has one. Choose acid, cold, fire, lightning, or poison. Until the spell ends, the creature can use an action to exhale energy of the chosen type in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a Dexterity saving throw, taking 3d6 damage of the chosen type on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
>At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 2nd.
What I mean by "more spells like Dragon's Breath" is more spells that grant fun, flavorful actions in combat. Vampiric Touch is another one.
Where's my "Eye of the Beholder" spell? What about a spell that makes you sticky so you're a better grappler or a spell that gives you poisonous fangs?
Maybe I'm in the minority or maybe I'm not as familiar with available spells as I should be,... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’d never thought I’d reach this point and have a clean slate!
Wow I’m so overwhelmed by all the love and support I have been getting, thank you all so much it means more than you know ❤️
I’ve been practicing these deep breaths in preparation for labour and I was told it’s good to practice when you’re having a poo. I’m shocked at how well it’s working for moving poo along!
Edit: I gave birth this afternoon and this breathing thing, I’m not even sure I breathed at all for the duration of labour. Good for stuck poo though.
I’m thinking about getting it when it goes on sale next (whenever that may be), last zelda game I played was wind waker over a decade ago so I’m curious how different BOTW is and whether or not the insane amount of praise this game has gotten is deserving. Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Wow this got more attention than I expected! Thank you all for your replies! I’ve decided to just buy right now instead of waiting for another sale.
So I’m in bed and I was just thinking about Kyle who was super mad at Dorit for getting glammed before coming to the retreat when the rest of them woke up at 5 and came in a modified version of the face they were born with. She goes to Denise’s dinner party and calls her a “ragamuffin” because she doesn’t tend to glam. Then she calls Denise “fake” because she was regular last year and did slightly a bit more this year. She acted as if Denise had never in her life cared about her appearance. So what I’ve gathered is Kyle feels the need to be the one who looks the best. I’ve noticed that she too, has upped her glam.
I’m just really shocked she had the audacity to call anyone fake considering her fake teeth, nose, marriage, businesses, and friendships. She is the worst offender of being fake by censoring her life on tv so we perceive her a certain way. She said husbands are off limits to talk about, her relationship with her sisters, her legal issues. All that’s left is her annual repe... keep reading on reddit ➡
In these times people are reaching for a lot of things to make sense of what’s happening and I have to say, what we’re looking at is the empire coming home. The world police are coming to American streets and we are openly asking if the US military will gun down civilians in the streets. And all I can think about is how Malcolm X said there is no fight for civil rights, there is only the fight for human rights, a global struggle against white supremacy and fascism. That struggle never ended, it started in 1491 and hasn’t skipped a day. And that makes me unable to hold something back.
Now I am not a Marxist Leninist at all, and there are lots of ML twitter accounts saying absurd things or whatever, but people need to have an ounce of perspective on this because there is an overwhelming sense on the left that Marxist Lenininsm “failed,” it was only terrible and evil, and there is nothing to remember. Now we have to look at Sweden and Norway and how they show how socialism works. And tha... keep reading on reddit ➡
The past few years, people have been raving about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Many reviewers act as if it's the second coming of Christ, the game that all others should base themselves off. I do not agree.
To preface this, I am not a long-time Zelda fan. I'm not comparing this game against previous entries in the series, simply looking at this in terms of basic game design.
The Open-World Design
You step out of your resting place at the beginning of the game, and come across an awe-inspiring view. The massive map in front of you, complete with a number of areas that you instantly want to explore, like the corrupted Hyrule Castle or the imposing Death Mountain. And guess what? You can go there! After the first tutorial-esque section of the game, which excellently introduces the different gameplay systems available to the player, the map is opened up completely, and the player can travel to every single location in the map. Anything that piques their interest, th
In February, my grandmom got a horrible cold, with the signature dry cough. I had been following the news and didn’t like what I saw, I feared the worst for her. I would go to her nursing home 1-3X a week to help her. To do her laundry. To keep her company. To help with bills and anything she needed. I have been caring for her for many years, long before she went to the medical wing in her facility. She only ended up in medical at the beginning of the year, right before this madness, because of mobility issues — she was otherwise healthy. In fact, she was gawked at in awe by medical professionals due to her amazing health in her old age. She managed just fine in the independent living wing up until January of this year, and frankly, she should have never stayed in medical and none of this should have happened (but that’s a whole different story).
In Feb, while COVID-19 was known, it wasn’t being handled the way that it is now. Testing was only done if someone became critical. Nursing... keep reading on reddit ➡
Seeing a lot of anxiety and fear on here. If you want an opinion from someone who's been here for decades and have seen a lot of shit this city endured, just know YOU will be ok.
Eventually, the city will be ok. People who have options will leave but will come back (how much can you REALLY do in rural areas?)
For people fear mongering on how they will go after residents? In all the history of this city, curfews, violence, looting, rioting, there hasn't been a movement en masse like that. So please stop with that. Stores are easy targets. Human beings are not.
You are also forgetting that while it DOES take time and effort to get a firearm in NYC, it's possible, and many do have it (myself included). Risk vs reward is not something even the dumbest looter would think is worth it.
I cannot recommend this show enough. It has a solid beginning, but really ups the ante a few episodes in.
I knew it was because of the news.
I'm able to get any game for the switch and I think Zelda looks cool but I'm kinda on the fence about it.
