I got 425 degree glue on it at work and when I peeled the dried glue off it took a layer of skin with it

2018-06-05 13:09:33 UTC
2018-06-05 15:08:59 UTC

If it gets any worse or pusses up go see the Dr to get some RX cream

2018-06-05 15:09:33 UTC

Any Dr will be able to give you a topical cream stronger then some over the counter burn gel

2018-06-05 21:58:01 UTC

@Louis Loire - NY thanks. I'm going floating this weekend should I just dress it as normal or do I need to wrap it in a waterproof bandage or something?

2018-06-05 22:36:36 UTC

Or should I even worry about it?

2018-06-09 04:49:05 UTC

I would put a protective layer over it.

2018-06-19 23:34:03 UTC

<@&435155893747974155> can any of you fine people read a blood test chart?

2018-06-19 23:34:12 UTC

Or understand it

2018-06-20 00:08:39 UTC

@Thomas Morrow it definitely needs to be waterproofed, you donโ€™t want river water on your wound. You are bound to get a bacterial infection or a parasite.

2018-06-20 00:09:02 UTC

I would do the following

2018-06-20 00:09:16 UTC

Wrap as normal with your atibiotic ointments etc

2018-06-20 00:09:47 UTC

And rewear with a water resistant tape or find a slightly tight rubber sleeve

2018-06-20 00:23:15 UTC

2018-06-20 00:23:25 UTC


2018-06-20 00:23:32 UTC

THat isn't as bad as I had pictures

2018-06-20 00:23:39 UTC

Almost healed up now. I wear a big band aid over it now

2018-06-20 00:23:57 UTC

That could be gently wrapped with water resistant tape and gauze and be just fine

2018-06-20 00:24:00 UTC

Just to keep the product at work from ripping it open

2018-06-20 00:24:14 UTC

The skin is still thin

2018-06-20 00:24:28 UTC

This is over two weeks later at this point haha

2018-06-20 00:25:04 UTC

2018-06-20 00:25:14 UTC

This is where it was at initially

2018-06-20 00:27:22 UTC

Thanks for all the help btw

2018-06-20 00:27:52 UTC

To all you who who provided feedback

2018-06-20 00:39:34 UTC

<@&435155893747974155> can any of you fine people read a blood test chart? I don't fully understand it. And I have a couple of questions.
I get the results of my lead test back on Friday.

2018-06-20 02:09:11 UTC

What's wrong

2018-06-20 02:09:19 UTC
2018-06-20 11:01:09 UTC

Well the other day I got off work, came home and I went to use the restroom and as soon as I sat down my left arm went tingling numb, so I got right up paced a bit then I started to have upper chest pain, so naturally I think I'm starting to have a heart attack or even stroke. So I took 2 Bayer aspirin and went to the ER. As I was walking into the ER my legs were going numb and I was getting light headed, felt like I was about to pass out. But I don't have any conclusive results yet, they did a mess of tests on me, and the doctor thinks as of right now I might have a DVT.
But I have the results of my blood work and they are telling me it looks good, and my blood pressure is ok too. I always figured that a clot would cause the bp to skyrocket. I don't understand it.
About 12 years ago the girl I was dating got a blood clot in her left arm from birth control pills, her arm would swell up with blood and it was very obvious what was going on there, but I felt like I was going to have a heart attack. Chest got really tight, I never had any trouble breathing but my arm stayed numb with out the tingling. Lightheadedness, lower back pain, legs going numb. It's strange. But I was wondering if anyone understood what everything on these blood test results mean.

2018-06-21 17:27:40 UTC

What brand of supplements do you use? I'm running low on some of mine, which are NatureMade brand and CVS generic

2018-06-27 16:35:48 UTC

@RevStench I'm not a doctor I couldn't tell ya man

2018-06-27 16:36:17 UTC

Those are signs you shouldn't fuck with though

2018-06-29 18:31:33 UTC

@RevStench What other tests did you have? What you're describing is really serious medically so they had to have done a binder of tests.

2018-06-29 19:21:18 UTC

EKG, MRI, lead and standard blood test, everything is coming back good, according to the tests I'm healthy and I have the heart of a thoroughbred.
I'm starting to think I have an overexposure to mold. So on Monday I'm going to have more specific blood work done. Hopefully something will come from that.

2018-06-29 23:46:36 UTC

Do I need stitches? <@&435155893747974155>

2018-06-29 23:47:26 UTC

Sorry for the blurry picture my hands are shaking a little bit.

2018-06-29 23:48:19 UTC

2018-06-29 23:49:05 UTC

I think it just took off the skin it's not bleeding that much .

2018-06-29 23:49:12 UTC


2018-06-29 23:49:24 UTC

Get some anti bacterial on that shit

2018-06-29 23:49:36 UTC

I think you may need stitches

2018-06-29 23:50:50 UTC

Rub a little dirt on it and walk it off๐Ÿ˜‚
I don't think you need them

2018-06-29 23:51:44 UTC

Clean that shit out

2018-06-29 23:51:54 UTC

Clean it out and make sure it's not deeper than it looks, but if it's not pouring blood, I think you'll be ok

2018-06-29 23:52:12 UTC

lucky you're not bleeding all over the place

2018-06-29 23:52:31 UTC

@Der Seeteufel - SD that needs stitches

2018-06-29 23:52:56 UTC

I'm working on cleaning its easier said than done.

2018-06-29 23:53:30 UTC
2018-06-29 23:54:05 UTC

I'd be going to urgent care immediately.

2018-06-29 23:54:21 UTC


2018-06-29 23:56:52 UTC

I would suggest going to urgent care after cleaning it as well as you can.

2018-06-29 23:57:01 UTC

I'm not going to the doctor. If anything I'll call my buddy on the fire department to come stitch me up.

2018-06-29 23:57:18 UTC

Either way it will need to be cleaned very well.

2018-06-29 23:57:53 UTC

If you went to the urgent care you would be around a bunch of dindus so that may be a good choice

2018-06-29 23:59:51 UTC

@Der Seeteufel - SD Iโ€™ve seen enough wounds in my time to know that one needs stitches.

2018-06-30 00:01:40 UTC

Better to get it done right and be sure than to fuck about and end up with problems

2018-06-30 00:02:15 UTC

this is why I'd suggest taking time to learn to suture

2018-06-30 00:02:40 UTC

It helps when your wife is a PA...

2018-06-30 00:06:49 UTC

Wash that out asap

2018-06-30 00:07:06 UTC

Get a bottle of first aid spray wash it very well and bandage

2018-06-30 00:07:28 UTC

Might not need stitches but can't tell from just pics

2018-06-30 00:14:15 UTC

I put some hydrogen peroxide on it. And scrubbed it out as best I could on my own. I'm going to head down to the firehall and see what my buddy thinks.

2018-06-30 00:14:53 UTC

He said the same thing @Louis Loire - NY

2018-06-30 00:20:23 UTC

@Louis Loire - NY should I use these? It's the only thing I have other than hydrogen peroxide and some antiseptic gel.

2018-06-30 00:40:29 UTC

That gap is about 3mm across and 1 or 2 mm deep boys

2018-06-30 00:46:32 UTC

You know what I'm an idiot. I'm a disabled vet I'm just going to go to the VA clinic tomorrow.

2018-06-30 00:49:33 UTC

Good idea best to get it cleaned by a pro

2018-06-30 00:49:56 UTC

The best thing to clean scrape wounds like that is first aid spray it will come in a spray bottle

2018-06-30 01:02:12 UTC

Yeah my brain took a second to catch up there and I've never really been a blood person so I forgot about the VA. You'd probably have to take my arm completely off to get me into urgent care though.

2018-06-30 02:52:55 UTC

I was thinking you may lose the arm...๐Ÿค”

2018-06-30 02:57:54 UTC

@The Huwhyte Ulf - VA Does IE accept cripples? What about amputees? If I loose the arm I'll get it replaced with a cool hook or maybe some sort of projectile launcher.

2018-06-30 02:58:42 UTC

I wouldn't think you need stitches.

2018-06-30 02:58:55 UTC

I'm no surgeon though.

2018-06-30 02:59:10 UTC

I've super glued my fingers closed so many times...

2018-06-30 02:59:54 UTC

IE needs a cyborg farmer yesss

2018-06-30 03:00:08 UTC

@Der Seeteufel - SD drink something with sugar in it for the shake.

2018-06-30 03:00:27 UTC

It will smooth out the "shock"

2018-06-30 03:00:28 UTC

@Freiheit - CA me too, super glue on the job site is a must

2018-06-30 15:04:25 UTC

No stitches just got it cleaned, steri striped, and bandaged. They said follow up in a couple days if it starts to fester but otherwise I'll be fine.

2018-06-30 15:04:32 UTC

2018-06-30 15:05:00 UTC

Half dox

2018-06-30 15:06:53 UTC

Lol yeah I'm undoxable I work for my cousin so good luck antifa moles.

2018-07-01 21:19:47 UTC


2018-07-01 21:34:39 UTC

Lol that gash was pretty nice

2018-07-01 22:47:46 UTC

It still hurts pretty bad I can still bend my elbow but any time I twist something like a door knob it pulls on it and hurts like hell. I'm just hoping it's healthy enough for the warrior dash on the 14th.

2018-07-03 02:03:42 UTC

Is it infected?

2018-07-03 15:37:51 UTC

@Freiheit - CA nope I just changed the bandages this morning it's actually healing up pretty quickly.

2018-07-03 15:56:40 UTC


2018-07-05 19:56:26 UTC

So if anyone is wondering I finally figured out what has been wrong with me, over exposure to mold. What a nightmare it's been. If you think you have mold/mildew around take care of it immediately.

2018-07-05 19:59:20 UTC


2018-07-05 20:11:41 UTC

@RevStench thatโ€™s sucks man... I worked with a person who got permanent vocal chord damage from exposure to some type of mold/fungi spores in the air when landscaping... gave him a permanently hoarse/very quiet voice

2018-07-05 20:21:04 UTC

Wow that's crazy, I have to see a doctor who specializes in environmental hazards, so far when I'm away from it for a few days I get back to normal, so I'm hoping that's a sign that I don't have any permanent damage.

2018-07-05 20:21:44 UTC

Glad you determined the cause and can now mitigate.

2018-07-14 23:05:42 UTC

Iโ€™ve been told since I started working in healthcare that feeling upset and saddened over the declining condition or death of those in your care is normal and actually a sign that youโ€™re the type of individual that belongs in this field, and this has been the case for me. Iโ€™ve bonded with the people Iโ€™ve taken care of and felt a great sense of loss when some of them have passed away. Lately however I feel like Iโ€™ve been losing this. Iโ€™ve recently felt tired, distracted, and at times even jaded and cynical. I feel that many things have contributed to this; being witness to neglect, working with non whites who can barely speak English let alone properly take care of people, getting to know good people who canโ€™t afford the care they need, etc. I donโ€™t want to ramble on endlessly but I would like to ask others in the medical and healthcare field if theyโ€™ve ever experienced this as well. Did it pass? If so howโ€™d you get past this? Should I consider seeking another career field based on this? Any advice or opinion is appreciated, thank you. <@&435155893747974155>

2018-07-17 15:48:29 UTC

My grandpa is in the hospital after surgery and the staff there is anything but empathetic. I think possibly you just become desensitized.

2018-07-17 15:52:43 UTC

@AidanGillen to be honest dealing with situations like what you just described motivate me to stay in healthcare and be better than that.

2018-07-17 15:56:22 UTC

It's possibly the headspace I'm in right now, but I'm leaning towards it's the sort of "stare into the abyss and the abyss stares back" you become what you do. Possibly it's per person on how much empathetic connection you can handle before it begins to wither away. Not sure if that makes sense.

2018-07-17 16:14:26 UTC

Makes total sense

2018-07-21 02:09:14 UTC

I have the same situation as you, it's a line often said that the empathic should be the people in healthcare, but the truly empathetic don't last long from my experience. You need to establish professional distance with patients, and their families.

It hasn't passed for me, I've just channeled my frustration and dissatisfaction into more productive things. Going to the gym more, taking up journaling, meditation, continuing education, etc.

2018-07-21 19:10:29 UTC

@JC17-OR this is really great advice, thank you for sharing. After I wrote that rant I hit the gym really hard and felt much better.

2018-07-21 21:13:15 UTC

Personally, journaling and meditation really help. I've also changed my diet and while mentally it didn't boost me much, physically I feel a lot better.

2018-07-21 21:13:29 UTC

headspace is a good meditation app.

Passed my state CNA exam today gents!

2018-10-01 22:47:05 UTC


2018-10-01 22:49:19 UTC

Thanks! Iโ€™ll be looking into finding work at my local hospital

2018-10-01 22:49:58 UTC

Apparently they offer to pay for nursing school if you work there for a year

2018-10-03 21:57:26 UTC

Anyone ever dealt with a patient with anosmia?

2018-10-03 21:57:47 UTC


2018-10-03 21:59:28 UTC

Iโ€™m working with a client who has it and itโ€™s caused a feeling of โ€œrevulsionโ€ as he puts it towards eating. As you can assume heโ€™s lost a ton of weight because of this

2018-10-07 05:33:04 UTC

First thing that comes to mind is CBD. Second is ginger.

2018-10-07 05:40:26 UTC

By the way, my second choice for a handle was Nature Boy, if that tells you anything. If you're looking for alternative health info, tag me and chances are I'll know something about whatever it is. Traditional/alternative medicine is vastly superior to allopathic medicine when it comes to chronic conditions. Sorry if I'm hurting anyone's feelings by saying so, but that is the case. Of course there are nuances and special cases, but modern medicine does a great job at turning profits and a terrible job at keeping people healthy.

2018-10-09 04:36:26 UTC

Regarding what you guys were talking about earlier. There's a few things I can recommend for stress and trauma (which are different degrees of the same thing). 1) TRE trauma release exercise, 2) Hanna somatics, 3) qigong, 4) stabilize your blood sugar, 5) vipassana (, 6) self oil massage (I use sesame oil). You can also release a lot of tension in the supine position with a couple heavy sandbags on your belly. Just don't do it after a meal.

2018-10-09 04:41:58 UTC

I hope I wasn't too brash with my previous comment. Not sure if we're all on the same page, but I'm not a fan of chronic disease care in modern medicine. It's great for emergencies, but when people go through conventional channels for things like back pain, digestive issues and cancer, they get raked over the coals.

2018-10-09 04:49:31 UTC

@Grossly Incandescent something else that might help : have him keep a thermos of hot filtered water and take a sip every 15 minutes. You can also try making some really strong ginger tea with a little bit of black pepper and have him drink a little bit of that about 15 minutes before each meal.

2018-12-16 02:29:06 UTC

today I learned that leaving cooked rice outside of the refrigerator is super dangerous

2018-12-16 02:30:44 UTC

it causes the growth of heat resistant bacteria

2018-12-16 02:34:42 UTC

rad, I'll be sure to leave mine out

2018-12-16 02:47:39 UTC

I found out after I threw up all my food today

2019-01-21 23:02:19 UTC

Multivitamins: good or bad?

2019-01-21 23:19:15 UTC

I take em

2019-01-21 23:19:22 UTC

Without soy

2019-01-21 23:19:52 UTC

Sometimes an vitamin D during winter

2019-01-21 23:44:41 UTC

Take beef brain and beef liver instead of synthetic vitamins

2019-01-21 23:45:00 UTC

2019-01-21 23:45:13 UTC

Ancestral Supplements has good ones. I highly recommend

2019-01-22 05:04:12 UTC

Scar update from July. Still looks nasty TBH.

2019-01-22 05:05:58 UTC

Sorry if I'm cutting in on your supplement conversation I just don't see much activity in this channel and figured people would be interested in how my wound turned out.

2019-01-22 05:07:16 UTC

2019-01-22 05:24:55 UTC

@Der Seeteufel - SD are you applying anything to the scar?

2019-01-22 05:25:23 UTC


2019-01-22 05:25:52 UTC

I have a pretty prominent scar on my left leg from a motorcycle wreck

2019-01-22 05:26:07 UTC

I've heard tea tree oil helps, but I've never been bothered to apply it

2019-01-22 05:27:33 UTC

Yeah my gf doesn't seem to mind so I don't really care. It's not like it hurts or anything.

2019-01-23 22:57:01 UTC

@Myndrian do you find that you get withdrawal if you quit taking these? I tried pituitary glandulars once before and had weird symptoms when I quit taking them.

2019-01-23 23:52:18 UTC

Nah not really. Take them slow though cause there can be detox symptoms

2019-01-23 23:52:32 UTC

Cause there are a ton of nutrients in brain and liver helping the cells to function properly

2019-02-02 20:31:09 UTC

@Myndrian I recently cooked up some liver. Pretty good! How often do you eat it and in what portions

2019-02-02 20:32:58 UTC

Also, how can one ensure their water quality? I'm inclined to buy water from the store, but I'm not sure where it's sourced from, it could have the same pollutants as those in city water

2019-02-02 20:41:51 UTC

@Kaledin - SD I usually get it from my dad who hunts and we tried doing liver pate but stopped and mainly dehydrate it and put it in pills. But Iโ€™d recommend doing both. Right now Iโ€™m only doing pills of deer and cow liver

2019-02-02 20:43:28 UTC

@Kaledin - SD and I donโ€™t know much about water pollution etc. Iโ€™m mainly focusing on food at the moment

2019-02-02 20:44:08 UTC

@Kaledin - SD oh sorry and portions for me are 2 servings of the Ancestral Supplement brain and liver daily; 12 pills

2019-02-02 20:44:21 UTC

The ones I linked above

2019-02-02 20:52:28 UTC

Currently I'm buying beef liver organ meat directly bc it's pretty cheap

2019-02-03 00:51:31 UTC

Nice nice. It truly is a superfood

2019-02-12 21:52:29 UTC

my chest has been mildly numb all day

2019-02-12 21:52:39 UTC

at what point should I get it checked out?

2019-02-12 21:53:01 UTC

for context, I get bad chest pain every few months

2019-02-12 21:53:31 UTC

I go to my clinic and they just tell it's anxiety or flu or something

2019-02-12 21:53:49 UTC

I occasionally get the numbness but it usually doesn't last this long

2019-02-12 21:54:00 UTC

and I get mild heart palpitations a lot

2019-02-12 22:26:27 UTC

i got heavy chest compressions and chest pain a couple months ago. i was IT fasting and working out. i ended up just going to too hard at trying to lose weight. whats your diet and exercise like?

2019-02-12 22:27:09 UTC

i read too much vitamin D could cause that too

2019-02-12 22:55:51 UTC


2019-02-12 22:55:58 UTC

pretty typical college student diet right now

2019-02-12 23:51:25 UTC

the difference between heart palpitations and heavy chest compressions may not be immediately obvious. heart palpitations are regularly irregular. like your heart cant get a rhythm going. its more serious than just heavy heartbeat

2019-02-17 04:50:33 UTC

my toes have been numb all day

2019-02-17 04:50:43 UTC

at what point should I get it checked out?

2019-02-17 05:01:54 UTC

I'd do that asap
