    laurens136 commented on Doctors Are Revealing Times When A Patient Said, "I Don't Think This Is Important, But...," And, In Fact, It Was *Really* Important

    As an ER nurse, this is so common. Trying to ask triage questions is like jumping through mental gymnastics sometimes, trying to find different ways to phrase things to get accurate answers.

    laurens136 commented on 27 Reasons Why Putting On A Helmet Is The Dumbest Thing You Can Do

    I worked in a neuro trauma ICU for several years and there’s a reason we call summer “trauma season”- all the motorcycle/atv accidents where no one was wearing a helmet (or any protective gear). I cannot TELL you the damage a helmet can protect you against. Is it foolproof? No, but…

    laurens136 commented on The FBI Has Tracked Down Some Of The Capitol Rioters In Truly Surprising Ways

    The funniest thing is how many of those people had someone in their lives who was more than willing to turn them in. Tells you a lot about the kind of people they were.

    laurens136 commented on 16 Condescending Things Women Have Actually Been Told By Male Medical Professionals

    I was 20 and had been having knee pain on and off for over a year. It finally got bad enough that I was limping. Went to an orthopedic office at my university. The male physician, his 2 male students/interns, and a male scribe walked in. Asked me if I played any sports and when I…

    laurens136 commented on Name One Book You Started But Absolutely Could Not Finish

    The final Twilight book. I was pretty decently into the first few books being that I was in my early teens when they came out and they were all the craze, but I remember getting the last book and being just so not into it. I think I made it like 2 or 3 chapters until the honeymoon…

    laurens136 commented on What Is The Dumbest Way You Have Injured Yourself?

    Sliced my hand open trying to cut a pre-sliced bagel. Had to go to the ER to get stitches, where, ironically, I had I job interview at that I was getting dressed for when this happened. Calling the manager from their own ER to explain I wouldn’t be making the interview was pretty…

    laurens136 commented on What's Your Best Advice For Long-Term Relationships?

    Recognize that relationships are almost never always 50/50. Sometimes you’re going to carry 70% of the burden, whether it’s household duties, taking care of kids or pets, or just being the one giving more into the relationship, and sometimes when you need it, your partner (should!)…

    laurens136 commented on What's The Best Place To Buy Comfy Underwear Online?

    Aerie, hands down. Their underwear is super comfy and in styles and colors that are “adult” enough that I don’t feel like I’m wearing something meant for a preteen. Not to mention their deals are amazing- I just got 10 pairs for only $30!

    laurens136 commented on What Should They Actually Teach You About Money In School?

    How to create a budget that actually works, how interest on loans and credit cards works (that your money goes toward paying the interest off first before paying off what you actually bought), the difference between 401(k)s and IRAs, and how to save for your future.

    laurens136 commented on What Are Your Best Tips For Managing Eczema?

    I get flare ups on my face, and SkinFix’s eczema line has been a lifesaver. A little bottle is $18 but it’s the only stuff that works, is steroid-free (I can’t use steroid products), and actually fixes the dryness without burning or stinging.
