@Deleted User thanks. I think I should have specified the pain is related to the outer part of my foot i banged on the rock rather than my ankle itself. Not sure if that changes your thoughts

2017-09-18 01:00:24 UTC  

Probably just a bone bruise then, should heal in the same amount of time.

2017-09-18 02:05:06 UTC  

Bruise with some nerve impingement

2017-09-18 02:11:26 UTC  

Rest, ice twice per day, if sitting keep.elevated if possible

2017-09-18 02:12:14 UTC  

Some nsaid as well ok, ibuprofen 800 three times a day or naproxen 500 twice per day. Always with food.

2017-09-18 02:12:47 UTC  

If not significantly better in 4-6 weeks get xray

First study demonstrating this is live humans

Is the soy boy thing a meme, or does it actually make you a faggot?

2017-09-20 23:22:38 UTC  

I'm surprised how many things contain soy

2017-09-20 23:24:22 UTC  

Valid question, daily stormer had an article a while back praising soy

2017-09-21 16:16:48 UTC  

@Deleted User I know there was a guy who started drinking Soylent exclusively a few years ago, next thing you know, he cuts off his wee wee and grows his hair out.

2017-09-21 23:27:29 UTC  

Soy decreases testosterone

2017-09-21 23:27:50 UTC  

In small amounts is fine, but don't make it a part of regular diet

2017-09-21 23:28:12 UTC  

^^^

2017-09-21 23:28:23 UTC  

Beer should also be avoided, especially IPA

2017-09-21 23:28:45 UTC  

flax seeds and soy

2017-09-21 23:28:59 UTC  

no goy

2017-09-21 23:37:49 UTC  

Cider is a good alternative

2017-09-21 23:38:03 UTC  

I keep beer for special occasions only

2017-09-22 00:58:58 UTC  

@Deleted User that's why Hipsters are such soyboys

2017-09-22 01:00:12 UTC  

Alcohol in moderation, avoid beer, corn syrup, massive amounts of sugar

2017-09-22 01:00:21 UTC  

Be a man and drink some bourbon

2017-09-22 01:02:24 UTC  

Mead is the way to go.

2017-09-22 01:03:39 UTC  

Be a man and go straightedge

Mead 👌🏻

If for whatever reason one of you degenerates needs drug advice, I'm pretty knowledgeable about neuropharmacology, moreso on drugs. Used to be a degen so I did a bit of research on everything I used in the past few years amounting to a decent amount of info on most of them.

2017-09-27 01:34:18 UTC  

Does weed serve any medicinal purpose at all

2017-09-27 01:34:58 UTC  

Or cannibis in any form

2017-09-27 01:35:18 UTC  

Yeah but imo does more harm than good it will help obviously in the treatment of some cancers and the more obvious pain related/insomnia issues

2017-09-27 01:36:12 UTC  

But excessive use will lead to decrease in overall creativity, memory, and intelligence while also destroying your ability to enjoy life without it and your learning abilities

2017-09-27 01:37:06 UTC  

If you're just doing it recreationally every once in awhile tbh you'll be A-OK but don't overuse

2017-09-27 01:37:39 UTC  

Medicinal side is over exaggerated by stoners who just want to get high without sounding like an addict

2017-09-27 01:38:13 UTC  

I'm not, was just curious. Theres a lot of hype surrounding it and I cant tell whats true and whats (((true)))

2017-09-27 01:38:19 UTC  

So basically if you don't have a specific condition it might help with its really not going any good for you

2017-09-27 01:39:09 UTC  

I get the "weed cures cancer bro" argument a lot and besides the fact that it doesn't, 9 times out of 10 they don't have cancer lmao

2017-09-27 01:39:45 UTC  

Yeah. To be honest I think the only really distinct medicinal value it has is treating epilepsy.

2017-09-27 01:40:40 UTC  

I'd argue for its value on insomniacs and people with eating problems too

2017-09-27 01:41:28 UTC  

But yeah it's really only medically relevant for people who have these conditions

2017-09-27 01:42:23 UTC  

I hear it prevents you from going into a REM state through right? When I used to be degenerate I always woke up feeling like I got zero sleep after falling asleep high.
