I was in a car accident as a kid and had to have my stomach pumped from swallowing a lot of my own blood. Why was this necessary?
I tried looking for an answer on google but of course there's only medical answers and I know in this case it must be just a weird bodily thing,
This is an uncomfortable truth for me. I’ve been on medication for a few months after being diagnosed in my late 20s, increasing my dosage in effort to find what works for me. When I have bad days at work, it is very easy for me to think:
>This dosage is too low!
But with honest self-reflection, I can see that those bad days were so bad because I spent most of the workday browsing on my phone. I hardly even bothered to start my work tasks, so how would I know if the medication was helping me focus? I had to come to terms with something.
#Medicine won’t give me motivation.
What I’ve realized is that I need to aggressively rip myself out of my phone, or whatever else I’m doing to procrastinate. After a few minutes of working and I’m engaged in the task, I find I’m able to continue working for multiple hour stretches pretty easily. Taking an hour lunch break kills my motivation and I have to repeat the process after lunch as well. But these hurdles have made me understand how the medication is working for me. It’s not a miracle drug. It won’t magically turn me into a superstar employee. It will, however, help me stay on a task, whether that is browsing Reddit or building a spreadsheet.
It’s my conscious choice that decides which task I do.
So, I have knee surgery in 3 weeks. My doctor said I'll have to take anticoagulant, antibiotic and painkiller pills. I can get away with some chewable painkillers I use, but the other two he said they only have pills, no syrup or anything.
I've never been able to swallow a pill. I've tried everything. I'm gonna list the methods below:
- Chin up
- Chin down
- Pop bottle (lips around the bottle)
- Eating it with a piece of bread (without chewing the pill, only bread passed lol)
- Drinking from straw with the pill in my mouth
- Putting water in my mouth first
Basically everything you can imagine, I still can't. I'm freaking out, is there any other tip I can try?
I am an amateur cyclist and I live in an area where there is little flat ground so it is uphill most of the time and it gets exhausting but my pride doesn't allow me to just walk uphill any tips???
The sick fuck just wants to hear me say “My daughter, Pride, is in my stomach”, but I’m never going to give him the satisfaction.
But her bird collecting has gone far enough now.
This is the third track from the National’s sixth album, Trouble Will Find Me. How do you feel about this song? What are some of your favorite lyrics? How would you rank it among the rest of the band’s discography? How would you rate it out of 10 (decimals allowed)?
