2020.09.24 22:14 FuckSleepApnea34M. Live in NE Ohio. Have a job. Struggling with depression, anxiety, and severe sleep apnea that has me almost homeless.
I have used up all the resources I have from family members as far as money goes. My employer is very reasonable and understanding and has worked with me not being able to work for weeks at a time. I have a CPAP machine for my sleep apnea but for the life of me cannot keep it on. I have tried taping the mask on and I cannot get more than an hour into sleep before ripping it off. I have now since ordered a new type of mask which isn't a mask but are nasal pillows. Supposed to be much more comfortable and less cumbersome. I have a psychiatrist and a counselor for my mental health. It goes well and I take my medication everyday though I still suffer from bouts of sever clinical depression. The medicine has helped, for this is the first year I have not been to the hospital for inpatient treatment and it has not lasted as long. The problem is I don't have income when I can't make it to work and I struggle every single morning to fight staying awake driving into work. I am now able to get to work at 10am instead of 730am but I still struggle to get a full paycheck which I need weekly in order to pay off bills and necessities. I have a budget worked out down to every single detail and I know what is required of me to meet those needs in order to stay in my apartment. I rent an apartment in a small quaint town outside of Cleveland, OH. I am a plumber and have my own vehicle which is a 2011 Nissan Rogue fully owned. At about $500.00 per week it will afford me my current situation which is; a 1 bedroom apartment, near family, it supports my habit and medicinal costs for cannabis and terrible addiction of cigarettes. It pays the bills, puts gas in my tank which gets me to work. That amount also takes care of food, soft drinks, cat food and litter, toiletries, and internet for the month. $500.00 a week to live in my current situation. I make $19 per hour and will take home roughly $500-$550 per week after taxes. My income can support this and even save some money to eventually make payments on credit cards which my CC debt totals just $3600. Not too bad and I have 100% on time payments all across the board as of this point. My credit score is about 620 with not much history too it. The only loans I'm qualified for are predatory high interest loans at 199% APR. The problem is I still struggle to get a consistent paycheck and now I have asked all that I can of family members for money. They are the reason I am in the position I am in which at this moment is stable and self sufficient. It just wont be permanent and I am trying to brace for the inevitability that I wont be able to afford my current lifestyle and support myself. My depression and mental illnesses pretty much are going to determine my living situation due to the irrational choices I make when I am manic or down in a hole. I cannot support myself in these situations and fall behind on all bills and rent payments let alone anything left to pay debt off on credit cards. I guess in my situation I need to not worry about the debt as much as needing the money just to survive. Just sucks I fucked myself. Woe is me. Anyways that's where I'm at. I guess I need to downgrade my lifestyle. Move to a part of town that is cheaper and closer to work? My commute is 35 minutes. No traffic really though so its not too bad. Quit cigarettes, eat ramen noodles, whatever it takes to bring the monthly expenses down in order to survive. To keep my head above water. Not a whole lot to look forward to living like that. Especially when my dreams and aspirations exceed that of a just getting by paycheck to paycheck on medicaid type of lifestyle. Anyways looking for advice on how to prepare to change my lifestyle and how to downgrade and live within the means my income can provide. I have had over 60 legit jobs in my life I can guarantee that but I think I found an employer that has compassion and humanity. He wants to give me a raise to $24 per hour if I can get control of my absenteeism and tardiness. I don't plan on going anywhere, I get satisfaction from the work I do and my employer is really a great human being. At this point I'm just trying to prepare myself as the patterns in my history all point to not maintaining a consistent income.
2020.09.24 22:09 dumbeggbabyhuge oopsie...dropping out of my college fr..
So, I thought I was being wise by taking initiative and taking an algebra course over the summer before my freshman year begins. They told me that if I failed the course, I'd have to switch out of my major. I thought "no biggie, I got this in the bag! It's just algebra!" WOW my duMBA-- anyways, I was getting 88% and above on quizzes, 100% on assignments, and I understood the material very well. The final is worth 50% of our grade, and we need a 75% in the class to be considered "passing" the class. With quarantine and all, studying at home has definitely affected my mental health, and my house isn't really work-friendly. My house is very noisy and my parents stress me out so much, and I have severe test anxiety when it comes to math because I suck at it. During the test I kept thinking about how this class is in the way of me and continuing in my major. Even the proctor reached out to me after the test and let me know that I looked very stressed out and she wanted to check on me. I failed the final, which resulted in me failing the class. It really was a matter of poor test taking skills rather than poor math skills, nonetheless, I must face the consequences. Turns out, not only do i have to switch majors (I'm a bio major) but I have to completely switch out of the college of natural and agricultural science and into the college of humanities and social science. I thought "okay...not what I wanted, but I'll make it work! How about majoring in psychology since that's an available major?" Nope. I can't major in anything relating to math. Matter of fact, they're not letting me take a single math class again. I literally can't do anything STEM related at this college because I failed this class. REALLY? OOWEJDOJW IM PAYING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND YOU WONT LET ME GO BE STUPID IN MATH? PLEASE??? I want to go into med school, and I need to meet math prerequisites, which I can't fulfill at this university anymore. I'm thinking about trying to transfer to a better university, but until transfer applications are due, I'm not sure whether I should go to a cc and transfer to a better university, or if i should stay at my current university and stick with my undeclared humanities major while taking random courses that are interesting, then transferring to a better university once the applications are due. Just a note, the university I'd love to transfer to is a really amazing yet selective university (a private uni, not UC) and I've had my eye on it for so long. I don't know if attending a CC would lower my chances of admittance over transferring from a 4 year public university. Do you think that private uni's would prefer a student coming from another uni over a cc? Additionally, if I do transfer, should i mention this whole ordeal? Would mentioning this situation paint me in a bad light? I was thinking that maybe I should make my transfer app focusing more on how I have many interests, such as violin, philosophy, compsci, and medicine, and how my current uni doesn't really allow students explore all their passions and avocations. So sorry for this block of text. I appreciate any advice I can get because I'm seriously in a tough spot right now and I feel quite stupid. If you were in my situation, what would you do? I was thinking about transferring out of this uni before this situation happened because I truly stand by my earlier statement, that it's hard to explore your interests here (simple example of that is that I wanted to take a foreign language and they told me it wouldn't give me any credit no matter how good I got at the language, and that they highly discourage me from taking a language. This was when I was a bio major.) TL:DR I failed a math class so I can't take any more math or science classes at all, got kicked out of my major and forced to be in humanities. I want to transfer but idk if i should transfer from my current uni to a prestigious school or from a cc to a prestigious school.
2020.09.24 21:54 sharknifeeI'm 16, and I can't take it
For the past 5-5.5 weeks, I've been experiencing gurgling noises from my throat all the time. I've never been able to burp, but only since about August 18th (around there) my throat has not been giving me a damn break. I went to the doctor about 4 weeks ago, even showed them the Inability to Burp on larynxopedia, and they were like, "oh, its probably just acid reflux, take some of this pepcid." So I got on pepcid ac. (Acid reflux my ass) Anyway, it's been getting much worse the more time goes on. I had an appointment with a GI doctor about 1.5 weeks ago on probably September 14th. Prescribed me "Omeprazole dr" 20mg each day. Also showed him the website. He said yeah yeah, but it might be acid reflix so let's put you on that. So I stopped taking pepcid and began taking that. He also heard my gurgling noises and he was like "that's because you're swallowing air. I guarantee you if you open your mouth and keep it open, you won't hear any noise." Doctor left the room, I kept my mouth open, my mom looking at me, and would you fucking believe it, it kept making the obnoxious gurgling noise. I had a mental breakdown a few days ago and am begging my mom for surgery because it's getting so fucking bad that it happens every 5 seconds, even when I'm trying to sleep now. On top of the CONSTANT gurgling noises, I get bloated after eating 1 thing (god, I have since forever.) I've never been able to burp. Also, flatulence happens a lot too. Painful ass hiccups. Uncomfortable and sometimes pain in my chest and mid/lower throat. Oh and let me tell you what my mom suggests. "have you ever tried burping? drink soda, it'll make you burp. Swallow some air." Which only makes it WORSE. I'm in online school because of coronavirus. Even when I talk to the teacher the noise happens. When I'm listening it happens. Trying to do work, it happens. Right after eating or drinking (of course) it'll happen. It's so fucking distracting and annoying and uncomfortable and I can't take it. Exercising, like running, it happens too! Also, I'm on the ASD spectrum, so that also makes it infinitely harder to ignore. My mom and siblings and friends hear it all the time too. After crying about it for like 2/3 days (and other things) I'm finally seeing an ENT doctor tomorrow. I can't take this shit anymore. If it's just gonna keep getting worse, I don't think if the chance comes to go back to school that I ever will. The sounds are super embarrassing, loud, constant, and it hurts. I just want a damn doctor to listen to me and not say bullshit like ACID REFLUX. I need surgery, not medicine. I need something that'll help me CONVENIENTLY. Even while writing this my throat has made probably 100 noises...it happens thousands of times a day. If they don't let me get surgery sometime soon, idfk what I'm gonna do. I can't take it anymore. Sorry for the novel, I need a place to rant, and if any of you lovely people could give me some advice, that would be severely appreciated. It absolutely sucks not being able to burp even if I wasn't complaining over 5 weeks ago. TL;DR: Throat been gurgling hundreds/thousands of times a day since mid-late August plus many other symptoms, went to 2 doctors who claim its acid reflux and have given me meds for that, it's just been getting tremendously worse as time goes on, and I desperately want/need surgery, advice, and a place to rant. Thanks for reading.
2020.09.24 21:39 ahhshitiforgotUnderlying Issues With Pharmaceutical Medication (IMO)
TLDR *Cause I took my meds earlier =); IMO by the diagnosis and the pharmaceutical pills given potentially lead to later problems. Having this chemical imbalance is a vicious cycle of attempting to "feel normal" and to be "less impulsive". IMO It is in Big Pharms best interest to herb us out for profit of their own by administering their drugs to use (which can be a useful tool after finding that right medication for yourself) as a crutch (or tool for lack of a better word).... And a pill a day is a form of an addiction in my eyes; I don't care if the med is given by a doctor; If we take it daily, its a "habit", although you may not be addicted.... If your doing it daily for your mental state, that sounds like an addiction which is a different prespective I know but If I drink liquor everyday I "May have a problem" If I use "Illegal Drugs" everyday "its A problem" (I Don't), If you drink coffee everyday and suddenly stop for 2 months cold turkey straight let me know how you feel... The issue being (in my case and most likely plenty of others) if we ever decide to stop taking that pill that calms us; Admittingly I will tend to lean on other things, sometimes healthy but most times unhealthy. If you stop your meds, in my personal experience Ive ALWAYS REACHED FOR SOMETHING ELSE to selfmed(coffee, energy drinks, sodas, alcohol, hookah etc). I believe it is because we were given the medicine in the first place. Without doubt we would come up with creative ways to reach our dopamine but would we be attempting to achieve the lasting normalcy that the medications once gave us while off. And whats interesting is because herb has become legal and so much research has been invested into the possible benefits NOW......... even though Big Pharm has a patient/produces their own synthetic herb pill..... Its us who gets stripped of our scripts if we have herb in our system (typically, that if you doctor asks for that sample to check). With circulation that it may be helpful for use to indulge moderately to help with symptoms and other underlying cormorbid we may have; Big Pharm does not want us to indulge at all stating its a health issue with the medication (schedule 1 blah blah blah, which I understand). The fact they don't want to look into it and encourage us to keep taking a pill a few chemicals short of street stuff... suffer through the lack of appetite *in my case, bad sleeping patterns etc is very interesting. I am not saying GO SMOKE HERBS. Not by any means am I stating it would be right for you or that you should participate in any unhealthy activities to self medicate/motivate yourself. Its just observations I have seen, Seem like they want you dependent on their drugs and their drugs only and Im curious if they had their hand in the industry if that would change... to a degree I understand why thing are the way they are but its been a frustrating path for sure, anyways, Y'all stay up. Take it easy out there, Be safe.
2020.09.24 21:20 spoiledsweetI don’t know what to do with my life
Gifts from my parents: financial comfort / good education / paid for my medical degree Strings attached: physical abuse and incest / religious lies / I never wanted to study medicine Sometimes, I believe all of it was good and I should go back home and follow the religion and have an arranged marriage and become a doctor. More often, I insist it’s all bad. I say no to being abused or lied to ever again, but also no to financial stability and anything related to medicine. I dropped everything after graduating medical school and left home to become a stripper. I never saved any money. When the clubs started closing, I planned to start a phone sex business. Instead, I took the chance and did something new. Three months ago, I started work at a call center. I am getting better at staying positive and empathetic and at managing my money. But I want to do more. I’ve always been good at art and I like to write, but neither of those are responsible. I dream of singing or being an actress but those are even less so. I haven’t touched a medical textbook in six years. It would take at least a year of self-study to get anywhere passable. It doesn’t make me happy. But along with having a family, it sounds like the most responsible thing I can do. Maybe I should stay exactly where I am. Is this temporary? I don’t want to be unhappy or unaccountable. I also want to do something. Sometimes I feel paralyzed.
2020.09.24 21:15 Information_LooseHelp with Itching/Irritation/Burning - my cure
Hey guys - not one to post on reddit typically, but i wanted to reach out and share there is hope. 5 years ago after intercourse i was left with what i thought was a YI. I did a treatment of monistat without any success. I ended up going to 25 doctors who did every sort of test in the book. I was negative for all STDs, yeast, BV, diabetes - if there was a test for it, i took it. i was convinced i had yeast and didt understand why it wasnt showing up I was having constant discharge and burning in my vagina. I could barely walk from the pain and the itching was so bad it was waking me up at night. I was at my breaking point and ended up going to the Mayo Clinic in AZ. they recommended me to this specialist below. It turns out my pain was related towards a lack of estrogen in my vagina (not overall - hence why my hormones were always fine). 3 months of treatment and i was 80% better and a year later completely symptom free. Most of his clients are all out of state so he operates mainly on the weekend Monday & Friday. He also does virtual appoints and you can send in a lab sample. Its a slow recovery but i promise there is hope. Read his reviews online for more information He focuses on vulvodynia as well and can offer help. This isn't an ad for him or anything, i just know how painful this can be and i wish someone had posted this for me as i was researching for hours online. Would have saved me a-lot of money and three years of pain. I do NOT recommend him if you haven't already been tested for BV/Yeast/UTIs/ etc as those can be treated by your gyno. Sometimes even trying a few medicines before hand will help.(ex: diflucan doesnt work for me, but regular yeast inserts do). I would go to Dr. Fowler as a last resort if you cannot find answers. He is a specialist and does not take insurance unfortunately https://www.fowlergyninternational.com/ Ill check back intermittently to answer questions - hopefully this helps at least one person!
2020.09.24 21:13 doom_iniqueConcerns about changes in my menstrual cycle (long, somewhat complicated)
Hello all, I am pretty much at my wits end here and I'm looking for some advice. I've already updated my doctor (via email) on some of what I am going to write here, but I dont know when or if I will get a response from her. I also dont know what I am looking to get from putting this out here, I just dont know how much longer I can deal with this. I'm 31 (almost 32) and I started menstruating at the age of 11. I dont remember the early years well, but I have always had heavy, painful periods that I could predict down to almost the hour it would start. I dealt with it as best I could with lots of NSAIDS and a few miserable attempts at bc before giving up. I had constant spotting for a year and no reduction in pain levels, so I just opted to take painkillers and use condoms. My mom never had heavy or painful periods so she was sympathetic, but not very helpful. My sisters are not my blood-relatives and we never really talked about this kind of thing. In 2016 I got a tubal and my recovery from that was pretty horrible (lots of pain, swelling, and side effects from the opioids I was prescribed). My doctor said she didnt see any signs of problems while she was operating and she happily told my husband that my insides were "textbook perfect". After recovery, my periods got more painful and I started having more extreme mood swings, but both the doctor who operated on me and my new one told me that it was not unusual. For a couple years this was tolerable as I have had a wfh job since before my tubal. Before I continue discussing my periods, I have to talk about the rest of my medical problems. I have gastro problems that are likely related to celiac and I have other food allergies. I figured these out in my early 20s and I have them well under control. In 2017 I got very sick and was later diagnosed with moderate chronic asthma. My first pulmonologist put me on a heavy steroid. I had to use my rescue inhaler 3-4 times a day for several months, but I got a little better over the next year. I saw another pulmo after the first one didnt want to change anything despite worsening mental health attributed to the steroid and rescue inhaler use. The new pulmo figured out I was having a bad reaction to immense amount of albuterol I was taking every day and she changed up my medicines to combat that. I got a lot better, but I am still having problems. Now my pulmo and a gastro think that my asthma is acid reflux induced. I am currently waiting to hear back from my gastro about the egd I had last month. It is also worth mentioning that my asthma is noticeably worse during my period due to stress and nsaid usage. I would take something else, but nothing else really works on the pain. Currently I take the following prescription medicine (I dont know if any of these really can cause the problems I'm having): *symbicort *montelukast/singulair *albuterol (not as often as I used to use it, but I still need to use it occasionally) *famotidine (night acid reducer) *esomeperazole (morning acid reducer) I also take a couple supplements (iron, turmeric, passionflower) occasionally, and nightly melatonin. Back to my period. Late last year my periods drastically changed. They got heavier, more painful, and the time between periods was very variable. I've had cycles lasting between 24-31 days, and bled between 2-5 days per cycle. Spotting has lasted from 1-4 days after the main bleeding ends. Early this year I switched from tampons to a cup and I think that I am bleeding more by volume than I used to. I have had to empty full or almost full cups 3-4 times a day the first two days of my period. In July I started having pain so bad that I would end up curling up in a ball and crying my eyes out while waiting for the painkillers to kick in. Once the painkillers kick in, I can generally keep myself at a tolerable level of pain/comfort/etc. I saw my gyno in August after my period that month. I told her that things were worse and more painful and she said she'd give me a prescription strength dose of naproxen. I asked if there was anything else that can be done, and she said no because she didnt want to put me on a hormonal bc since I was sterilized and had problems with bc before. Last week I had the absolute worst period of my life.The morning of the first day I was in crying-levels of pain again, but instead of the usual 30ish minutes for the painkiller to kick in, it took almost 3 hours for the prescription. I had extreme hot flashes, intense nausea and dry heaving, and I wasnt able to get comfortable between the couch, bathroom floor, and bed while waiting for the painkiller to kick in and dealing with the nausea. I was barely able to eat anything so I could take the painkiller. I already take it easy the week of my period because I know it will make my asthma worse and that I will be pretty useless for two or three days. But this time it was just so bad and I am afraid that it is just going to keep getting worse. I just dont know what to do now. I updated my doctor about the painkiller and new symptoms, but I am not sure she is going to do anything except try another painkiller. My husband and I are both worried that something is deeply wrong, but we arent sure what it could be. So yeah... thank you in advance for reading this jumbled mess this far and for any comments, stories, suggestions, etc that you may have.

2020.09.24 20:44 dontmindme12345689Did I overdose or have a seizure?
Female, 20 yo, White, No nicotine, No alcohol, 5' 3, 140 pounds, USA. The only medicine is Famotidine 20 mg twice a day for acid reflux and Hiatal hernia. Sorry in advance for the long post but I wanted to give the full story. Last night, I smoked weed and had the worst reaction of my life. I used a THC cart that I had used many times before (before bed to help sleep) and never felt anything close to the way I felt last night. I took a few hits, nothing crazy. Nothing different than any other time I had smoked. After taking the hits, I started to feel the room spinning. I managed to get up and go to the bathroom and get into bed. Once I was in bed, I started convulsing and smacking my hand against my body and I couldn't stop. My legs were shaking too, I couldn't control it. I couldn't feel my body and I did not feel real at all. It felt like my heart was beating out of my chest. I managed to get up to grab my Apple Watch in the bathroom to see what my heart rate was and it was 163. It then dropped to 141 about 40 seconds after. About 20 minutes after I put it on, my heart rate went from 161 to 77 to 124 in about 2 minute. I bent over and put my head on the counter trying to accept the fact that I was going to die. After a while, I decided to get into bed and try to calm down. My bed is about 20 feet from the bathroom. I managed to take a few steps into my doorway but my legs were shaking so bad, it felt like I was trying to walk paralyzed. I'm not quite sure what happened after that but I remember falling backward, hitting my head on the ground, and then my hand punching myself in the nose. I couldn't move so I laid there and grabbed my blanket and accepted that I was going to die right here on the floor. My ears were ringing so loud I went deaf. The entire time on the floor (I think it was around 20 minutes) I was shaking and throwing my hands in the air and smacking myself. After I was finally able to get up, I was shaking so bad but I managed to get my dad and tell him I had smoked and I felt like I was dying. I was fully convinced I was having a seizure. I kept telling him I was going to die. He said I was really cold and pale. An ambulance was called and I went to the hospital, where they said I had just smoked too much. I slept it off for a while before being discharged. Now, my body is very sore, specifically in my shoulders and calves, and where I punched myself in the face. Everything is really blurry and doesn't really feel real that everything that happened actually happened. What I am confused about is that I have smoked this vape many times and never had a reaction like this. Did I have a seizure or just a really bad high? Did I just have an extreme panic attack? I can't really find much information about marijuana overdose online. Thank you for reading and any insight would be appreciated.
2020.09.24 20:25 Lynx537The Nag Hammadi texts were found in Nag Hammadi Egypt in 1945 and carbon dated to the 5th century. How many of you have heard of these or know what they contain? Have you ever heard mention of them even? These are the books and history they tried to erase. Are you curious what secrets they contain?
I post about this stuff every now and then, I have always wished I knew what books they hide in the secret Vatican library, or were destroyed by Alexander the great in the great Zoroastrian library, or the library of Alexandria. After reading the Nag Hammadi texts I feel like I got the gist of our true history and what most legends and religions are based off of. Books by Asclepius the Greek god of Medicine, Seth, Trismegistus, Shem, Adam, teachings of the Resurrected Jesus from his Apostles.......seems unbelievable right? These are like mythic figures and we don't have records of them living, but think of all of those secret and destroyed libraries and that might be where the records were kept. There is a conspiracy here for sure, if these books aren't written by the person that they are credited to then some person or organization has elaborately woven together a cohesive story that spans thousands of years from the beginning of human civilization until our present and they make J.R.R . Tolkien or G.R.R. Martin seem amature by comparison (both directly pull from this original story). The thing is though that this original story exposes the evil shadow governments religion, you know the warmongering pedophile banksters that are the enemy of all of history? Long story short the god of Israel smote them to near oblivion, Alexander the Great conquered them as the Phoenicians, then Rome razed Carthage to the ground in the Public wars. They worship the devil pretty much and want this world to be like Epstein's island, just like Babylon or Sodom or Gomorrah and they kept getting wiped out so they started infiltrating the highest positions, strangling the world in debt through usury, and instigating wars/genocides from behind the scenes. You know the ones I am talking about. Sidetracking, but I know who our enemy is, their gods, their religion, and it would make zero sense to pretend to be mythic figures and expose the whole ugly truth of it in secret hidden books, it would be completely against the bad guys agenda. I am leaning towards a lot of these texts being legit and is a lot of the secret information that they tried to erase. Pope Innocent III ordered a Crusade on the Cathars killing around a million Cathars in total genocide. "Kill them all and have god sort them out" came from the Crusade on them. I know what the Cathars believed and I know their religion is directly based off of these hidden teachings and they were wiped out so their religion didn't spread. I highly recommend the "origin of the world" as one of the first and if you want something different than all the current conspiracy stuff yet is directly related to the root of it all then I think you will enjoy these. Take it with a grain of salt at first, read it like you would the Lord of the rings or something just for the brilliant story, then reflect and see if you can find any truth to what you read.

2020.09.24 20:08 hunterxgreenI’m having the exact unusual situation as a previous poster on the subreddit did. I’m wondering if anyone has new suggestions on what could be going on?
I’ve been having issues ever since a tooth extraction last year. I thought I would never find someone who has so many of the specific issues I’m having, but someone who previously posted on this subreddit describes so many of the specific symptoms that I’ve been trying to figure out for a year now. I’ve messaged her to see if she figured out what it was, but it seems her account is inactive. Their previous post two years ago. Our symptoms and timeline are not identical, so I'll add mine. February 2019- Mild inflammation on lower left wisdom tooth gums. My dentist advises having wisdom teeth removed and prescribes pre-operative amoxicillin in case the swelling is an infection. I later switched to clindamycin because I did not feel I was tolerating the amoxicillin. March 11, 2019- Wisdom tooth extraction. I unfortunately had not had a dental cleaning in over four years at this time due to insurance concerns. I also was unsure of what to do before the surgery and brushed and flossed religiously the weeks prior, but the morning of wasn’t sure if I was supposed to brush so I just rinsed with mouth wash. So my mouth may have had a lot of bacteria. March 18, 2019- One week follow up. Everything has healed except for a bump on my lower right jaw bone, and it feels like it’s pulling from my neck. My oral surgeon says we should give it some time to see if it will heal. March 19- April 20, 2019- The bump on my jaw still grows and still feels like it’s full with a dull pain. I am prescribed clindamycin in case it is an infection. A month and a half after the first surgery, my surgeon decides to surgically remove the bump. April 23, 2019- Second surgery. My oral surgeon tells me the bump is a non-healing, growing hematoma with fresh blood. In his words, he had never seen or heard of anything like it. “One for the history books.” April 30, 2019- One week follow up. The pulling feeling is gone, but there is still excess tissue and it still feels “full.” My surgeon says we should give it some time to heal. As the extraction site is closing, I notice black and a bad taste like dirt just in that area. At this point I feel I have had so many follow up appointments and surgeries feeling that something is wrong, I decide to accept that I have a slow healing area and that I just need to give it some months to heal. For months, there's a "chunk," for lack of a better term, of bumpy tissue. It takes an entire year to almost go away. I can still feel a small bump on the extraction site. At all my dentists appointments that year, my dentist notes that the tissue seems abnormal and doesn’t want to perform any treatment for cavities until the area seems fully healed. The feeling of fullness and intermittent soreness never goes away. January-February 2020- Wisdom tooth site feels sore and full constantly. X-rays do not show anything. My oral surgeon does see a small bump he can move around with a tongue depressor, but says it is scar tissue. I am aware that some would say it is some kind of nerve pain and that there is no underlying pathology like infection, fungus, or necrosis. However, because I had physically observable poor healing that resulted in a non-healing hematoma, I am wanting to ensure that there is not some element of physical poor healing in the site. My dad had an upper endoscopy and his esophagus was biopsied, and they found yeast on his esophagus, which his doctor said was unusual for a patient that is healthy and not does not have a compromised immune system and he was given fluconazole. I have a history of pre-diabetes and hyperglycemia, managed by diet and exercise. And I’m curious if I could have uncommon pathogens causing poor healing in the wisdom tooth site. I’ve tried to be patient and give this area a year to heal, things have gotten worse. What the other person and I have in common are aching that lasts years and months after the extraction and that they feel worse when the mouth is "dirty" and slightly relieved when clean. It also doesn't present like a typical infection and seems really unusual. At this point, I've gone through a couple oral surgeons who aren't sure what it is, and found one who at this point is willing to give me an extensive work up. I have a PET MRI scheduled at this point a month from now. This surgeon did a cone beam CT which came back with a slight tissue difference that she said she wouldn't have noted if I weren't in pain. But since I am in pain, she wants to investigate further. She briefly mentioned a jaw biopsy, saying she'd want to avoid that, but I'm not sure if she meant that would be in the cards if my PET comes back normal. I know when I say what I'm about to say, I may lose some of you if you've happened to read this far. But, I hope you can understand that I have been in pain and having issues for a year and a half now, and am seeking relief. There are doctors who do cavitation surgeries, which I know can fall on the woo-woo end of medicine. And my skeptic type self wouldn't have believed I would have reached a point where I'd actually consider it, but here we are. Any help, at all, from a compassionate physician or dental/oral health expert would be deeply, deeply appreciated. And if you read this far, thank you.
2020.09.24 20:01 earl101_sex work is easily harder than being a doctor or lawyer, if you say otherwise you are biased & lying because of your personal morals, a thread:
to be a doctor all you have to do is go to college, to have an onlyfans you have to have an impenetrable mental and keep up with your body indefinitely which is exponentially harder than prescribing antibiotics all day, you also have to be a natural born talent. you cannot be taught how to be good at onlyfans its literally a skill i was born with you either have it or you dont, anyone can go to school and learn other trades. some will say doctors work harder because they "save lives" i SAVE LIVES, the content i produce will exist forever & continue to save lives and brighten peoples days even after i am dead. that is true expertise. sex workers constantly have to deal with slander and degradation where as doctors are praised for sacrificing their lives to medicine?? which anyone can do??? not everyone can do sex work. im not going to praise someone for making a bad life choice, you should be bowing down to those of us with an onlyfans for relieving all men across the world of their stress and worries and making them less aggressive and less likely to cheat i also make more money than my doctor so if you wont listen to the facts, that should say something, if they work harder why do i make more? someone brought up a good point, commitment; sex work is probably the biggest lifetime commitment you can make career wise, you can never come back from sex work, once you start your reputation is forever tarnished, this is true dedication also humans are by nature social creatures & when you go down the path of becoming a doctor you are well-liked and respected whereas with onlyfans its the opposite therefore youre more likely to become depressed when doing onlyfans and flourish easily when becoming a doctor. i could have easily become a doctor, i graduated at the top of my class, but im more of a high risk, high reward person, dont let yourself be brainwashed into taking the long pointless route for half the cash.
2020.09.24 19:42 1234rawrWibta if I cut my cousin off?
TL;DR My cousin is seeing a doctor who took her off her mood medicines because all the other doctors were “wrong” so now she’s treating me exactly like my mom did and it hurts my mental health also. Am I the asshole for ghosting her? Bare with me i don’t post often. My family (uncles and aunts) has treated me as my moms keeper my whole life. My mom had server bipolar disorder where she would only half way do her medications. Ie she would take both doses once a day. My mom had great times but then every 3 months it was ww3 in our house. She verbally and mentally abused me for years. Tried to kill us both numerous times. To this day I struggle with doing anything because I’m afraid I’m going to fail because I’m “a failure that should have been aborted”. My uncles and aunt kept their kids away from my mom because she wasn’t safe. They didn’t help out with me but left me to deal with it. My mom had strokes that caused dementia and passed away 2 years later. It was hard on me. I was still in high school when this all started to go down. Not once did my moms siblings help me because “we thought you could handle it” I was a senior in high school getting evicted from my childhood apartment because I didn’t have a job well enough to pay the bills. My mom passes and everyone once to grieve like they just loved us both and we’re there for me. 3 years later I’m alone trying to figure things out in therapy and taking medication for bipolar disorder also. I have slip ups and mess up on my medication but for the majority of the time I’m stable. My cousin also has bipolar and her mom passed 6 months after my mom so we grew really close. We live 45 minutes away. I’m the baby and with everything that’s been handed it me in life I struggle with finances because I spent so much time taking care of my mom that I didn’t get to finish college. My town doesn’t have high rates for much besides electricity and I’ve grown up here and made some great friends I consider family(they showed up when my real family didn’t want to). Every time I see my cousin she berates me for my hair (I’m mixed while my whole family is white so they think it has to be straight and pinned back at all times) my skin, my clothes how I need to move to her town so I can help her with her kids. I really considered this in the past for a fresh start but she has 2 adults living with her (her husband and brother). I recently found out I have a sister from my dads side.There has been some discussion of me flying to meet her. My cousin went around to our family function bad mouthing my sister and saying I didn’t need to move up there because I don’t need to take care of another person. Then preceded to tell me that I’m going to take off for vacation these dates because she needs help on vacation with childcare. All of this is exactly how my mom and other family members have treated me. I know it’s because she’s not medicated properly but I have grown to resent her Am I in the wrong for cutting her off?
2020.09.24 19:29 rubberstuckWhy are we being forced to stay alive?
if it’s my body and it’s my life, why can’t i choose to end it? why can’t i decided to be euthanized? i literally don’t have enough money to live and if i would rather die than be homeless, why is that a bad thing? Edit: mental professionals can’t prescribe medicine to help my actual life situation. i’m not talking about being suicidal. i’m talking about realizing that being alive isn’t worth the trouble of trying to stay alive. sometimes people’s lives just suck. sometimes people are in awful situations that can’t change with medicine. a consenting adult should have the option of ending their life
2020.09.24 19:28 TatsumakiSTORMRecovering from ankle pain after running for the first time in years. I'm not convinced about the therapy I'm receiving and the physiatrist I'm seeing. Should I look elsewhere?
Context: I'm a flat-footed overweight male (~28 BMI) who used to work out at the gym and jog but stopped for three years and a half. Two years ago, I suffered a sprain on my right ankle from jumping a trampoline the wrong way. It took me a while to recover since I got plantar fascitis due to poor consulting from an orthopedist. This was because I didn't start using my right foot sooner and, admittedly, I didn't do the follow-up exercises at home as recommended by the PTs. Flashforward to 2020, my ankle's never been the same. I feel mild pain from walking close to the achilles heel (I think) and the bottom of my feet hurt from standing too much while doing chores such as cooking and washing dishes. Because I wanted to lose weight and become healthier I decided to reintegrate cardio by redoing C25K again. But I got some really scary numb pain and decided to go see a doctor and take some physical therapy. So, I've gone to two PTs and physiatrists that "specialize" in sports. None of them have been any help. The first ones were barely paying attention to what I was doing, and the ones I'm going to now only give me very basic balance exercises on a balance ball. Both are a far cry from the old PTs I used to go to. Because I wanted to start running again ASAP though, I wanted to go to sports medicine type places instead. This isn't even mentioning my current physiatrist; he barely listens to me, recommends shoes with stabilizing support (which I've heard on running and other subreddits is OVERprescribed), and wants me to take 13 more therapy sessions in order to improve my balance further when I haven't felt any improvement whatsoever with my feet pain! Oh, and he arrived late TWICE. Today was especially bad, since I had a meeting at work at 10:00 am. Therefore, I coordinated an appointment at 8:30 am to make sure I don't get there late. 9:20 am, no sign of the doctor. I asked the assistant, and she said he was on his way. "On his way"? He's late by 50 fuckin minutes! I had to reschedule at 1:00 pm. All of this combined makes me want to skip this shit altogether and do some exercise back home until I find someone better. I realize I'm overweight: I've lost 20 pounds already, and well on my way to losing more. But it depresses me I can't even finish day 1 of C25K without my feet feeling like shit, let alone walk 50 feet from my apartment without having ankle pain! Am I right to seek someone else who would understand my situation better? It's been a frustrating month and a half, honestly. I just wanna buy some Vibram FiveFingers and get this over with.
It’s so dumb. Going to the dentist today kicked in my anxiety bad cause i hate the dentist & I left it feeling better but I’m at home now & slowly am getting anxious. Idk why. I just keep thinking of the numbing shots they gave me and how’s it’s somewhat a medicine etc even though I’ve had them so many times before. Then I think about allergies randomly when I don’t have any like that. Then I think about my throat and it starts feeling weird or tight-ish and I think about my breathing and yeah my anxiety spirals. So ridiculous.
2020.09.24 19:00 MorwynMcFuckYouWhat type of abuse is common with fundies that live in a family "compound?"
It seem to be fairy common in these fundie families for everyone to stay at home until they are married. The Duggar, Rodriguez, and the Bates familes are all examples of this. I was wondering what types of abuse this living arrangement typically leads to, because it is very similar to my own (my mom sees the Bates as an ideal family second only to her - yes the narcissism is real). Some types of abuse that I have noticed across the board in these families:
financial abuse (you know Jill gets all the money Nurie made on Etsy, and Lawson was basically forced to take care of the family or else they would starve)
parentification (older children take care of the younger kids while the parents sit on their ass/lay on their back
emotional abuse (the whole "keep sweet" thing basically teaches these kids that having any emotions of their own is bad)
medical neglect (you know none of these kids have had the HPV vaccine at the very least. Some are more anti medicine than others though.)
educational neglect (just watch any of the Rodriguez homeschool videos. The rest, at the very least, fail to teach science and history accurately.)
physical abuse (blanket training and spanking.)
Feel free to comment on any aspects of abuse I missed and why these types of abuse are so common/why some parents feel the need to enforce a compound living situation.
2020.09.24 18:26 smelly_picklesDryness in “no no square”
Hey y’all! I’m in my first month of accutane and my anus and vagina are SO dry!!! My butthole is burning so bad I can barely wear underwear and my underwear is STICKING to me from my goods being so dry. I don’t know if this is a symptom of accutane or of another medicine I’m on/medical problem I have. If this happened to any of y’all do you have any suggestions?
2020.09.24 18:21 Advanced_Tower_82What am I supposed to do?
I'm a 19 year old medical student, since I was a little boy I dreamed of becoming a successful doctor, now that I'm studying medicine it seems that all that motivation has gone away, now everytime I'm in a class I think all the time: "when will this be over?" Sometimes I even just want to be hit by a truck and end everything, it's sad that I could even cut my wrists and die and my family wouldn't even notice and if they do it would be too late to do anything, I'm a Catholic who believes in life purpose but I just don't know which one is my purpose, I am tired of everything I don't even want to try anymore, I miss my past self, thinking that everything was better before but then I remember I was equally miserable in the past. I think I need to find motivation to do anything, but a good motivation, not a weak one, bad thing is that I don't know what I am really good at, never really had enough experiences to know who I am.
2020.09.24 18:12 aa_kmI feel like curling up into the fetal position and staying there
I am going absolutely crazy. I've lost the motivation to do so many things. I can't even find the motivation to watch lectures or read textbooks. Honestly, I'm not even learning anything, I'm just turning in assignments before 11:59 and hoping I have enough common sense for the exam. I know I need to study, but I'm just in this weird rut where I can't get myself to do anything besides lay in bed. The second I get on my computer I'm angry at myself for not staying on top of things, and then I'm overwhelmed about how much I need to learn before the next exam. Not to mention that I'm a 3rd year premed and I don't know how I'll ever get into med school now. I thought I'd have my junior and senior years to devote to extracurriculars, but my respiratory and immune systems are lil weak-ass bitches. I can't risk exposing myself to COVID, which means no ECs and no going to campus. I need to start studying for my MCAT, but I don't even know where to start. I want to be a psychiatrist so so bad. I love medicine, I love science, I love mental health - it's honestly one of my only real passions. But now I feel like I don't have what it takes to get into med school; and even if by some miracle I'm accepted into one, how am I gonna survive there when I'm already dying just trying to complete a psych-BCN degree? I just don't know what to do. Can anyone relate? Do you have any advice for me and other undergrads in this position? Pls tell me this is a fixable problem and I'm not just a lazy pos
2020.09.24 18:01 betterthanyoufoundit70 days today
Hi everyone. I have been lurking here for the past 2 months and finally decided to join so I can share my experience. I used for almost 2 years. I'm unsure of exact dosage, but I think it was about 10-15g or so a day. (I used a medicine cup and filled it to 1tsp once a day) Sometimes took 2 doses, but usually cut them in half if I did. And there were times in the first year that I probably used 20g or so each day. I originally started using kratom for back pain. It helped a lot.......until it didn't any more. I quit CT on July 16. I had an episode of vertigo followed by a very weird uneasy feeling and decided that I'm never taking that stuff again. (In case it had anything to do with it). The first month was terrible. No sleep, crippling anxiety, depression, depersonalization, high heart rates, shortness of breath (I had this toward the end of my use as well), extreme fatigue,chest pain. I felt like I was going crazy. I ended up getting a prescription for Buspar to help with the anxiety. I think it helps some, but it's hard to tell. Now at day 70, most of the symptoms are still lingering, but not quite as bad. I can usually sleep 6 hours or so, sometimes more. But still feel anxiety almost every day. Not as bad as before though. I still feel tired in the afternoon. For the last week I have been getting chest pains that have been there all day. Sometimes it's the"normal" center of the chest and sometimes it is the left side and my back. I've had an ekg, blood work, chest x-ray, currently wearing a holter monitor. So far everything checks out with my heart. The doctor says that my heart is fine, the anxiety and constant stress are to blame for the pain. Can't wait for this to pass, I think it gives me anxiety because I keep thinking something is wrong with me. Paws has been a pain for me. I felt like I was getting better around day 50, then got hit with a huge wave of anxiety and chest pains. Man, if I had any idea that this would happen, I never would have used this stuff. Oh well, I'm never touching it again, no matter what anyway. Don't let this discourage anyone. Yeah, this sucks, but soon it will pass and my life will be back to normal. I feel a little better just making this post. If it weren't for this sub, I don't know what I would have done. You guys are awesome and have helped me a ton!
Just following up here. I went into my medical abortion so anxious and more afraid than I’ve ever been. Overall, it was a relatively smooth experience. More discomfort than actual pain. I would give this advice that I know helped me out. Starting the night before, I started drinking LOTS of water. I bought alkaline water since I notice that it hydrates me the best. This helps me during my normal periods so I figured it would be helpful. I’ve always noticed that cramping isn’t so bad when I am hydrated. I also never let my pain medicine wear off. I was prescribed trepadol which I took 30 mins before. Then, I continued to take Motrin every 4 hours throughout the night. Lastly, whoever suggested getting adult diapers during this time was a genius. I didn’t know how much blood to expect and I didn’t want to run into leaking. I lined the adult diaper with a pad and it provided all around protection that I felt comfortable in my bed. Today, I am feeling much better and only took another Motrin this morning. I am continuing to drink lots of water and Gatorade to make sure I remain hydrated. Bleeding has slowed down significantly. I was so anxious going into this based on all of the horror stories on here and my own fears in my head. Overall, my main suggestion would be to really focus on staying hydrated. I believe this significantly lessened my pain.
