(Most) Tumblr users have not had proper medical training

fitchris25:

Do not ask strangers for medical advice.

Talk to your doctor.

If you feel uncomfortable talking to your doctor, get a new fucking doctor, because they are there to help you with health issues.

Strangers on the internet do not know your medical history. Strangers on the internet are just that, strangers. They do not have any incentive to give you well-informed advice.

Can’t really do a proper H&P unless you’re sitting in front of me, anyhow.

This was magical.

lol color me not surprised

Why don't you fuck off? Female victims are often at least a bit safer because police and shelters take them in willingly. Men, on the other hand, are often seen as liars. Abuse shouldn't have to be a gendered issue, but people like you who ignore abused men are PART OF THE REASON WHY IT IS.

HAHAHAHAHA why don’t YOU fuck off? I, like many many many many many many many many many women, am a victim of a large variety of sexual and domestic violence. Do you really think for an INSTANT that women are taken in and given shelter and care that they need while men who are victims of sexual violence languish in the streets? Lemme tell you something, pal: this past school year I personally took two of my sisters to the Department of Public Safety to report rapes and assaults, neither of which resulted in prosecution or actually any disciplinary action at all, despite the fact that they knew the identities of their abusers and the attacks happened on campus. Last November, I was assaulted on campus at Truman State University by a fraternity member and reported the incident through all the proper channels, including DPS and the student code of conduct board and not only does that boy still go to my school, not only is he still allowed to be in his nasty fucking disgusting rape apologist fraternity (AKL chapter at Truman State is full of rapists btw) he has the fucking nerve to smile and look me directly in the eye every time he sees me, he was cleared of all charges and I’m not allowed to talk about the incident because officially it NEVER EVEN HAPPENED. Spring of 2014, I got a “crime alert” email from DPS every other week to let me know that another one of my classmates was sexually assaulted on campus; I assume they only sent out crime alerts for the crimes they bothered to prosecute. 

ALL victims are important, ALL victims deserve and are entitled to care and safety, but media campaigns for men as victims of sexual violence always, without fail, 1) misrepresent the reality of abuse and violence for men by showing them being abused by women when the vaaaaast majority are abused by other men, which 2) directly paints victims of sexual violence as the perpetrators and makes it even harder for them to get care. Not to mention that abuse victims often get to a point where they react violently and angrily to their abusers to protect themselves, but these situations almost always come out in the abuser’s favor because they either use it as an excuse to abuse their victims more extremely or they make the victim appear to be a violent abuser when they were actually just having an understandable reaction to living in terror all the time. I don’t ignore men as victims. I refuse to throw women under the bus in order to draw attention to men who are victims. 

Abuse against women is always gendered violence. When women are raped and assaulted and harassed on the street, it is because they are women. That’s gendered violence. Get the FUCK off my blog and never come back you worthless piece of shit. 

Add to list of Truman rapists - most of AKL. Shocker.

How hard do you think it would be to take care of a 50lb dog during med school?

wayfaringmd:

I am all for having a furry companion during med school. I’m pretty sure my cat is what kept me sane sometimes during test weeks. Dog ownership in med school could be pretty tough, but it could also be very manageable. Depends on a lot of factors:

Things that would make dog parenthood manageable:

  • having a significant other or roommate to share doggy duties 
  • fenced in yard where the doggy can run and play with a doghouse or some shady/cozy area the dog can rest in if left outside during the day
  • doggy door
  • non-mandatory lectures that can be skipped or watched from home
  • housing location close enough to school / hospital that you could slip home during the day to let the dog out
  • certain dog breeds (some can’t hold their pee for anything. I’m looking at you, weiner dogs)
  • a well trained dog (invest in obedience school)
  • nearby dog park or regular park where you can walk / play with the dog

Things that would make dog parenthood harder:

  • all the furs everywhere
  • apartment life (I don’t like the idea of doggies cooped up all day)
  • 3rd and 4th year erratic schedules and long shifts
  • arranging for doggy care during away rotations and vacations
  • 3rd and 4th year rotations at multiple sites
  • sick puppies at the most inopportune times (like right before tests)
  • RESIDENCY and busy life after med school

I love dogs, but the reasons above are why I have a cat instead.

I got no one to help me out with a dog, I travel, I lived in an apartment with nowhere nearby to walk a dog. But my cat is happy to chill by herself in the house all day and can even manage without me for a weekend if I need to go somewhere. And alls I gotta do is feed her, supply her with toys and catgrass, and clean a litterbox a few times a week.

Taliban In Pakistan Derails World Polio Eradication
Last January Salma Jaffar was shot while she was going door-to-door in Karachi, giving children drops of the polio vaccine.
"Even when they took out the pistol, I couldn’t understand why he was taking out the gun," Jaffar says of the two men who pulled up on a motorcycle and started shooting at the vaccination team.
"But when he opened fire, that is when I thought it was the end of the life," she says. "My first thought was that I won’t be able to see my children again."
Jaffar was shot four times: twice in her arm and twice in her chest. She spent the next three weeks in an intensive care unit.
Three of her colleagues weren’t as fortunate and died in the attack. They are among the more than 60 polio workers who have been killed since the Pakistani Taliban banned polio immunization in 2012.
Today the militant group continues to threaten to kill not only vaccinators, but also parents who get their children immunized. That threat has had a chilling effect on anti-polio efforts nationwide. And it completely halted vaccination drives in some Taliban-controlled areas. It’s in these places that the crippling virus has come roaring back — and threatened to stymie global efforts to wipe out polio.
The worldwide campaign to eradicate polio has been going on for more than two decades. It has cost more than $10 billion. Now the success of the campaign hinges on whether Pakistan can control the virus.
At its peak in the 1950s, polio paralyzed about 350,000 people a year around the world. This year, so far, there have been only 128 cases recorded. Ninety-nine of them have been in Pakistan. And the South Asian nation is the only country in the world where the number of polio cases is rising significantly.

Oh good. These geniuses are now behind the anti-vaccine movement.

The edict by the Islamic militants to ban immunization was in response to the CIA’s setting up a fake hepatitis vaccination campaign in Pakistan. The covert operation was part of an attempt by the U.S. spy agency to verify whether Osama bin Laden was holed up in the city of Abbottabad.
" there are certain areas in Pakistan where the people resist [the polio vaccine] because the CIA used the polio campaign for intelligence purposes"
Like many Pakistanis, Ur Rehman erroneously says the CIA operation against bin Laden used a polio campaign for cover, even though it actually used a fake hepatitis B campaign. “The one who can use hepatitis for intelligence,” he says, “they can use polio for intelligence.”

Militarization/politicization of humanitarian efforts in this manner is hindering efforts across the board.
This is particularly bad, but even the well-intended inclusion of NGOs in the “hearts and minds” campaign has set back the ability of aid workers to reach people who now see them as part of a foreign invasion.

Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told , one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to  and f*** , the local media are reporting exclusively.

“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.

In further discussions with journalists from the media, the  stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”

“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.

The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.

“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.

THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE

I spent my first two weeks of medical school in a headspace that made me honestly question my own sanity. I’ve always been an anxious person, though I usually internalize it well. This was different than anything I’ve experienced….

Can you whine about anything else? Please. We'd love to hear more. Do you know how many moms would LOVE to stay home with their babies and do all things domestic, but have to work many hours everyday away from their homes to help support their family -- AND THEN they come home to still do all the housework that doesn't magically do itself while they're gone. Put your woes in fucking perspective, you ungrateful whiny ass trollop. Or at least, mature the fuck up and pipe the fuck down about it.

Guess what you dumb fuck.. I am going to school so I can go back to work in a few years. Then I will be that mom away from her kids all day, that comes home to house work that doesn’t magically do itself. I will not apologize because my husband has a job that can support us all, and allows me to stay home with my boys while also earning an education. I will also not apologize for expressing myself when I am having a shit day. So sit the fuck down and shut your goddamn mouth.

Thank you anon because it’s seems like she is ALWAYS whining. I always want to say get over yourself! If you get the right to express yourself constantly on a public forum then ya know what? Everyone else can too. If you don’t like it YOU can ignore it.

The reblogs are nice though.

What is this

Pardon the interruption, acatnamedjezzabell, just a quick tip: don’t ever use someone else’s blog as a medium to have a cunty conversation with your shitdick anon friends. Your blog is your place to post your opinions. You do not have the right to drag people you do not know into your shitty views. The only reason I am reblogging the original post is because 1) the original poster and I are friends. She does not know you, and after this bullshit, I guarantee she does not like you. 2) I wanted it to have some context. 

Keep your own asinine thoughts on your own heinous blog, you sad excuse for a human. That goes for you, too, anons.

"If you get the right to express yourself constantly on a public forum then ya know what? Everyone else can too. If you don’t like it YOU can ignore it."

Dude, it’s someone posting about their personal life, not making a political statement. One bears scrutiny, the other does not. The inability to make that distinction means your mom didn’t raise you right. I guess I pity you for that.

If you have enough time to criticize someone’s personal life via their blog, their safe space in which to do so, then you need to step up and get a day job. If you have one, you better quit slacking off and get back to work.

I hate to invite myself in [I promised myself I’d quit doing that], but this sort of thing has been going on a lot across my dash lately.
