So I burned myself fairly bad but I'm not really sure if it's bad enough I should seek medical attention. I'm diagnosed bpd and it not the first time I've burned obviously but this is the worst one I've had in several years and I am lacking perspective as to whether it is bad or not

Thanks

Fellow borderline here. Honestly, it looks like it's going to be okay. I recommend cutting yourself instead of burning if you gotta self-harm. Also, sorry you have BPD and were very upset; that's genuinely too bad.

You didn't ask but DBT is legit, as is EMDR (just cause borderline's usually from a trauma background). Hope you feel better soon.

So I've been seeing a doctor and testing out different medications to "fix" my depression/anxiety for the 2nd time now in a few years.

The first time I was given an ssri, then had the dosage upped later after noticing nothing, and then had an additional drug prescribed to me which wasn't covered by my insurance leading to an argument with a family member. The argument combined with my frustration due to a lack of results after months of taking these pills lead me to stop cold turkey(with no ill effect that I can recall).

Now prior to my 2nd foray into solutions to my lingering depression/anxiety problems I dealt with some serious medical problems and had to get surgery etc. During this time I was ofc prescribed a fair amount of opiates. I'd been prescribed opiates before a few times and had left each experience seriously not understanding why people liked opiates. This latest experience left me feeling similarly after having what seemed to be an "oxy hangover" one morning I stopped taking the pills for what I thought would be forever(leaving me with lots of extra pills). Well, one morning I had crutched my way outside to smoke some weed and listen to the snow plow show as usual but after smoking and returning inside I decided to take one of my leftover pain pills to see how it effected the weed high. It ended up being an incredibly good experience and I finally "got" it.
This continued on for a few weeks where I binged on my pills until I ran out. During this time I was completely "cured" of my depression/anxiety(I think it's likely I'm somewhat autisitc/have aspergers as well), and was completely functional/wanted to do things(I wasn't sedated or anything like that). I found myself craving to talk to other people and actually being happy/carefree(a complete 180 for me). It was a truly amazing experience. As I said eventually I ran out, had a little cry knowing it would be over when I had the last of my pills but even then because of the effects of the drug I just put it to the side and continued on as if nothing was wrong. I experienced no withdrawals(interestingly) besides just being sad that it was all over.

So here I am again dealing with months of being on depression/anti-anxiety medications that just don't work and my current anti-anxiety medication has actually given me insomnia which means I need to take sleeping pills every night if I have work the next day or I'll stay awake(though ofc in a very unmotivated state) till 7am(like right now! I actually think I've built a tolerance to the sleeping pills now since I took plenty like 2 hours ago and here I am).

Being a competent person and not looking to seem like I'm "drug seeking" to my doctor I've kept my knowledge of drugs a secret and have done some slight experimenting on my own by ordering a "strong" anti-anxiety drug(etizolam) to see if pursing benzos would be worthwhile and though I could be wrong I didn't really notice much of a difference in my negative mental state but it did put me to sleep like a baby which was nice compared to the nightmare filled dreams I have with these sleeping pills.

So it seems like pursuing benzos is a waste of time. I also have quite bad ADD which I feel like I should pursue as that may improve my quality of life significantly. I've never done any kind of amphetamine/stimulant besides caffeine so I have no idea if it's likely to help much.

My depression/anxiety is completely logical and unrelated to brain chemistry etc so I feel like I'm basically fucked. I'll never get an opiate prescription for my problems(assuming these positive effects would continue longterm anyway) and while weed made things somewhat better(hard to say as it's been so long since I've smoked, but remembering all the good laughs and positivity I felt after a smoke was great even if it's something that would eventually end it was a nice thing to look forward to) it's not an option for me right now either and won't be until some of the shittiest things going on in my life right now are done anyway.

Any suggestions on what I should pursue with my doctor or am I just fucked?

Hello /med/. I've been dealing with a nasty case of "plugging shitloads of drugs". Tonight, RIGHT after emptying a syringe into my ass, I felt the urge to pee. But I couldn't relieve myself, or else the drug solution would have leaked out of my rear as soon as I let loose a stream of pee. I'm sure many of us have had the same problem during bouts of diarrhea.

So, is there a way to keep my butthole clenched tight while simultaneously relaxing my urethral sphincter? Thanks in advance; with all the traffic this board gets, I know it's hard to keep up with new posts.

So I shaved the other week and didn't use any cream and had sex with someone.

And this area became sorta soft bumpyness.

I don't know if it's just been irritated from that, and a 4 day bender of masturbation and jelquing, or a combination of being on a groin fold and my job causes alot of sweat and grossness.

But I'm thinking I may have hpv?

It doesn't look similar to most the things I see on hpv and warts.

But one thing looks like a skintag, and the other part just looks like some skin irritation idk.

What do you think here? Cause there's no test for men who have hpv and I just moved here so I haven't gotten a doctor yet

I'm obviously gonna try and be 100 percent honest with a girl I'm just gonna start to see. But what kinda input can I get from you guys?

It looks small and hardly noticeable. Not just my penis, the bumps

As an adult with the herp, unless you've been fucking unprotected a LOT lately it's probably not an STD.

HOWEVER, if they don't pop like normal zits and just sort of stick around I'd go to the DSS office around you for a free screening. It's a lot nicer to have medicine for dealing with outbreaks if it is what you're experiencing.

Hello/med/, which i assume is populated by the worlds foremost and knowledgable doctors in this exact field, happy to share their extensive knowledge.
Now, Imagine living a life where no matter how much you work out, you will always look scrawny. Imagine being in your late 20s and in great shape but a 17 year old that has never worked out and weighs 150lb wet stands next to you and looks vastly more imposing. The only way anyone would ever know how hard you work out is when you dont have a shirt on. And even then, not looking really proportionately right. This is my life. I have narrow shoulders. Nothing i do helps. Wear a loose shirt, you look fat. Tight, you look scrawny. "Go shirtless or wear wifebeaters/muscle shirts" you look like a douche. I have an enormous head(which is bald and, for whatever fucking reason, seems like the only place i store fat. I have a fat head), which is also bald giving the illusion of it being even bigger. I have bad posture, which seems to be common in tall people, and that doesnt help either.
I dont need too much wider. Literally centimeters would help.
>tldr
Widening shoulders surgically. Is it possible? Is it expensive? How could it be done?

serious question here

I have a crooked nose, it dont really notice it when i look straight into a mirror but in pictures and videos or when i smile its so fricken crooked.

i was wondering if i could maybe , "take fall down some stairs" or hammer my nose till it brakes " with the precision of a samurai warrior" and help it straight with my hands with a towl under my nose would that fix it?

whats the best spot to hit a nose to brake it safely.

thoughts, concerns

What do you think has caused your nose to be crooked? How often do you examine yourself in mirrors or photos? Do your family or friends fail to see what you're talking about when you point it out to them?

A common fixation of Body Dismorphic Disorder is percieving a crooked nose.

self-rhinoplasty is not the most rational response to this situation. Additionally, the following statement,
>I have a crooked nose, it dont really notice it when i look straight into a mirror but in pictures and videos or when i smile its so fricken crooked.
leads me to suspect that you may be experiencing or developing BDD.
If this is the case, the issue could be psychosomatic and anything you do may greatly exacerbate the situation.

I'm not saying this scenario is likely but if any of what I said made some sense, you might want to consider talking to a therapist before you knock yourself out with the ugly stick.
As bizarre as it may sound, I met once with a young man who ended up in inpatient at a psychiatric hospital when he was unable to convince his family, friends and physician of his crooked nose.

I'd advise against breaking it. You may displaced it worse to your expectation of being aesthetic. Consider a rhinoplasty if you are that discontent, or decoration such as piercings may hide the disalignment

This shit is so painful. I absent mindedly tore up my leg with my fingernails a few days ago, not realizing how deep I was getting, and the cuts got infected. I've been draining the pus out, cleaning it with face wash pads (diluted in water so there's not as much alcohol) and keeping it under bandages with neosporin as much as possible. I'm poor as fuck and my physician is like a 2 hour bus ride away so I really want to avoid that if I can. But it legit fucking hurts to put weight on this fucker, like I take a step the wrong way and my head is swimming and I can't think. It's gotten marginally better since yesterday but like damn it's pretty bad. What else do I do to take care of it? When should I panic and see a real doc?
Sorry for shitting up your board guys, thanks for any input

Honestly hard to say it's better from that picture, maybe the light is better so I can see more but it will take a while anyway. Anyway if you say you have a 10/10 pain then they gotta give you tramadol or something better than aspirin. I'm not for pain relief anyway; it's just a signal of distress and you should monitor all aspects of your injury. Probably good to avoid a lot of walking if it hurts, but try to do some light stretching/lounging in the sun and keep fluids up.

I work with special needs children/young people with anxiety and it's a nightmare when they get an injury. They obsess over picking and we have to monitor them frequently to ensure they don't peel off plasters or re-open wounds. I don't want to sound like your mother, it's just that if you want to clean off any abnormalities, use tools that you can wipe down and remove more exactly with. Nails are blunt and trap dirt, which is why it got infected, most likely. Also, lance your pimples from the side and gently roll out the pus. Use steam to open pores. Self care is a wonderful thing to practise on yourself and this habit of yours just needs some refinement.

OP here, thanks for the suggestions guys.

The zit has totally healed on the surface of the skin and is no longer painful, but now there is a lump below the skin that's about the size of a lima bean. Totally invisible from the outside, but I can feel it's there. I've never used chewing tobacco but I assume this is sort of what it feels like to pack a fat lip.

I would consider poking it with a sharp pin/sewing needle. But a trick for most thinks is Epsom salts. Amazing stuff. It's not actually a salt. But have had bad bug itchy painful unidentified bug/spinder bites and applied with a wet paper towel and like 10 minutes later what was a few large quarter sized red welts were just gone.

Epsom salts, read up on the uses.

Question for anything with a medical job that draws blood, whether you're a dedicated phlebotomist or an EMT or whatever

How do you find veins in really dark skinned people? I'm pale as fuck and I can barely trace the outlines of veins in my own skin. How do you reliably find a vein in someone who's much more opaque?

I'm thinking of taking a phlebotomy certification and I'm honestly just wondering what the trick is for this so I can get a head start on practicing the non-obvious skills

well, although the growth and development of the blood vessels is ultimately unique to each person like a fingerprint in terms of the smaller branches of the vessels, the major vessels are pretty consistent across humans. the veins of the anterior arm make a v-shape on either side of the bicep tendon. usually the medial vein is injected. it takes a little practice but you can palpate (feel) blood vessels under the skin with a finger or two. first press on your bicep tendon, feel how dense and ropey it feels? not much give, or recoil. now push on the meat of your forearm. feels like skin, fat, and/or muscle. locate a blood vessel and push very sofly on it. feel how it offers a slight resistance, like a pasta noodle, but recoils back up as you release the pressure. once you get a sense of that feeling you can find it with your eyes closed

How far into pregnancy are you?

Some questions from somebody who is both pro and anti choice:

Do you think sperms dying is sinful?
Do you mourn every egg that you flush out with your menstruation blood?
Do you mourn every animal you've killed?
Do you believe a fertilised egg is more capable of emotion and suffering than animals?
Does it have more advanced cellular and neural structure than an animal?
At which point do you believe it's wrong to kill the potential of a life?

I think both being pro and anti choice is valid.
I just believe that you should ask yourself in either case,
why is this different than all the other lives I have killed?

Am I keeping it simply because of what happiness I could get out of it, or what happiness the being could get out of it?
I'd choose never having lived past the womb over living my life in a bed without a single real friend ever. Every time.

Actually, according to a recent OBGYN textbook I read, less than 4% of babies come out with birth defects, even in this dopeheaded age. It will be considered a high risk pregnancy. At 16 weeks, go have your first comprehensive ultrasound. Start prenatals now, not after the appointment. And don't use ibuprofen if you need pain relief, it's dangerous for pregnancy
Use of acetaminophen is safe. And early congratulations on your little miracle.

Crosspost from /stim/, never hurts to get different perspectives.

Essentially, I get really fucked from coffee. I've been without a while without and had two cups today, so it got really apparent how much it affects me.

In short, anything more than half a cup of coffe gives me:
Shaky hands
A sharp feeling in my head, as in ice pick through head but not painful sharp. (keywords are probably; cold and metallic feeling. Drinking something cold after chewing some really minty or eucalyptus/menthol gum, but inside head)
Feeling of impending doom. Kinda like a diphenhydramine comeup only it never get's worse than that. (Tried DPH once out of curiosity, not for me. Didn't fry my brain with DPH addiction. Didn't dose retarded amount.)
General lack of interest in anything at all. Can't even watch a single episode of a series I usually like. Essentially instant depression. (Have used this for studying though. Since if nothing is interesting I might as well do what I usually find boring to get time moving.)

Everything except the shaky hands lasts hours. Or when I think about it I guess it sets in after the coffee wears off. Shaky hands during right after drinking, rest of the stuff grow as the shakes wear off and set in for real maybe some hour after, and last the rest of the evening. Don't feel truly 'well' until I've gotten sleep.

Just makes me wonder if some kind of receptor or something is fucked.
I just drink socially at most once every other month, toke up when weed comes my way but don't look for it actively.
No other substance use regular enough to be counted. And these symptoms have always been there anyway, just that amount of coffee needed to set them in has decreased.

What is your blood type? Certain blood types naturally have more adrenaline and are sensitive to caffiene. If you have been using downers or haven't had caffiene exposure, you can have heightened sensitivity too.
