A tip from your favorite nurse
(that’d be me)
Always have eggs in your fridge
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is
Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
I did some research on this (because I do that now, fucking science get out) and it seems that this was done in the early 1900s somewhat frequently. It was used as a way to treat just about any kind of skin wound, from burn to cut to in at least one case an ulcer. It actually helps the wound heal not by preventing blood loss but by replacing part of the skin tissue and helping it grow.
It also helps in healing scars and reducing their visibility.
Also, if you have a splinter, smack one of these things on there and it will draw it out of your skin. No more shitting around with pliers.
it will also suck the poison stuff out of mosquito bites and stop them from being itchy
woaaah i didnt know!! awesome stuff :D
Did not know the mosquito bite or splinter thing! EGGS—IS THERE ANYTHING THEY CAN’T DO?
They cant fix the economy
So I usually don’t do this, but I’m asking for your guys’ help.
This is Koda, she is 12 years old and has been my best friend since I was 3.
Over a year or so Koda had been showing signs of bad breath and blackening gums of which I just pushed off and thought nothing of. Over the past couple days her breath has gotten worst, her gum line has turned red, and she has began excessively drooling. Last night and today she has been very lethargic and I am afraid she might not be eating.
My family really wants to take her to the vet but we just can’t afford it. So here’s where you guys come in, I made a “gofundme” page, which will be linked under this, and I ask you, if you can, to please donate to Koda.
If any of you have a childhood pet, you know how hard it is to watch them go down in pain. Koda means the world to me and just watching her like this breaks my heart.
Anything will help even if it’s just one cent.
If a man can get enough money for potato salad, Koda can get enough money to live longer
(Disclaimer: in the picture, she just had a bath, that’s why her fur is weird looking)
Update: Koda is struggling to clean/lick her and myself.
I hope this lil angel gets better soon babySignal boost this guys. I know what it’s like, having to put down my baby for not being able to pay for any sort of treatment.
there goes my hero

rape culture hasn’t gone anywhere
ew ew ew what the fuck is wrong with those boys
- its perfectly normal and expected for people to act differently around other people
- you play a different role in everyones life and you act accordingly to that role
- its not being two faced
- it’s “would you act the way you act around your friends at a job interview?”
- no you would not
"So what are your strengths?"
"YOUR FACE HAS STRENGTHS"
im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh
I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.
