The German doctor replies: "That's nothing. In Germany, we took part of a brain, put it in another man, and in 4 weeks he was looking for a job."
The Russian doctor replies: "Well, we took half a heart from a man, put it in another's chest, and in 2 weeks he was looking for a job."
The American doctor laughs: "You are all behind us. A few years ago, we took a man with no brain, no heart, and no liver, and made him President. Now, the whole country is looking for a job!"
Yes, my pupils dilate.
Yes, I am focused on my task (That’s kinda the point)
Yes, I do take prescription amphetamines.
But I am NOT a tweaker.
I have a great work ethic, that’s me, not the pills.
I work my ass off 10 hours a day, that’s me, not the pills.
Spacing out mid conversation, missing important details, being impulsive with sex, money and drugs, having a very difficult time maintaining relationships both professional and personal, mind racing at incomprehensible speeds; that’s me, without the pills.
If you’re reading this thinking “It’s definitely the pills” I spent 2 years doing the hardest work I’ve done yet, working 12-15 hour shifts, stone cold fucking sober. Just to prove to myself that I could, and I can.
I have ADHD, not a crippling addiction to hard drugs.
So I can hear you muttering under your breath calling me a tweaker, and sometimes it makes me feel like I am, but I’m not.
And I’m tired of feeling insecure for taking my medicine.
Don’t be a judgy fuck in your day to day lives.
I am ll female. My HL male partner is patient and always kind and openly initiating, but most always accepts my excuses... which is basically one of two things.... we have a toddler and live in an RV. Im a sahm. Opportunities rarely show themselves. This week I started building myself up by shaving a months worth off of hair off everything....and tried to put my head in the right space, day by day. Today I made to effort of catching us both a warm and fuzzy buzz while she took a bath.. More than enough time to get a little intimate and finish one. He politely turned me down and now he's snoring on saturday night. Putting myself out there was a little tough but I was ready and willing. Now here I am feeling just how he did when I brush him off for my sad baseless rejections..... just another perspective for once.
Welcome to our weekly feature, Ask Anything Wednesday - this week we are focusing on Biology, Chemistry, Neuroscience, Medicine, Psychology
Do you have a question within these topics you weren't sure was worth submitting? Is something a bit too speculative for a typical /r/AskScience post? No question is too big or small for AAW. In this thread you can ask any science-related question! Things like: "What would happen if...", "How will the future...", "If all the rules for 'X' were different...", "Why does my...".
Please post your question as a top-level response to this, and our team of panellists will be here to answer and discuss your questions. The other topic areas will appear in future Ask Anything Wednesdays, so if you have other questions not covered by this weeks theme please either hold on to it until those topics come around, or go and post over in our sister subreddit /r/AskScienceDiscussion , where every day is Ask Anything Wednesday! Off-theme questions in this post will be removed to try and keep the thread a manageable size for both our readers and panellists.
Please only answer a posted question if you are an expert in the field. The full guidelines for posting responses in AskScience can be found here. In short, this is a moderated subreddit, and responses which do not meet our quality guidelines will be removed. Remember, peer reviewed sources are always appreciated, and anecdotes are absolutely not appropriate. In general if your answer begins with 'I think', or 'I've heard', then it's not suitable for /r/AskScience.

What's Atossa Therapeutics ?
"Atossa Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company seeking to discover and develop innovative medicines in areas of significant unmet medical need. Atossa’s current focus is on breast cancer and COVID-19. We believe our innovative therapies and delivery methods can benefit COVID-19 patients and transform breast cancer treatment – with the goal of preventing breast cancer from developing in the first place" I will try to focus on a possible near term catalyst for the stock, which is about their Covid Nasal Spray, but their breast cancer treatments in the pipeline are also worth mentioning and researching for sure.
They currently have 2 COVID-19 therapeutic programs under development, one for severely ill patients on ventilators and another for at-home use in patients recently diagnosed with COVID-19 who do not require hospitalization. https://atossatherapeutics.com/product-pipeline/
What should we be excited about?
Well, their current Nasal Spray with AT301 is intended for at-home use to proactively reduce symptoms of COVID-19and to slow the infection rate so that a person’s immune system can more effectively fight SARS-CoV-2. Atossa plans to identify potential partners who are developing COVID-19 diagnostic tests so that AT-301 nasal spray may be co-developed and commercialized with the goal of making the AT-301 therapy available at the time a person tests positive for the coronavirus. Atossa also plans to develop its nasal spray to potentially help prevent COVID-19 infection -- particularly for people in high risk environments -- including, for example, people living with a patient infected with COVID-19, healthcare workers, emergency responders and teachers.
