Erm, try the following combos, and be reasonable. Don't do it all at once.
>>drink more water
>>eat more pears
>>eat more cling peaches
>>eat more fiber
>>eat more prunes
>>if not want fruit, get a prescription of Colace (docusate). It's derivative of the herb Cola (warm cola is used for endocrine help)
>>if shaving your anus, stop
>>get a script of albendazole incase you have parasites you don't know about
>>if no doctor's appointment available, drink some apple cider vinegar for a stomach parasite cleanse.
>>Go to hippy store (Whole Foods, Lassen's, Sprouts, or store like it) and get Black Walnut tincture. Also, get Wormwood tincture. Parasite full detox and anti-cancer.
>>Orange juice with pulp every morning. My fiance's grandfather had colon cancer and juicing kept him alive until almost 90.

So, I'm wondering if coffee makes my bones hurt and also the same kind of sensation of impending doom as DPH but weaker (only tried it once, no repeat use), could that be a sign of something?
Also how dangerous would it be to keep drinking it, I know it is bad but it is so delicious I can´t keep away (and also having access to actual real life bone hurting juice is kinda rad).

But to get serious again, I´m pretty sure it´s the caffeine now, tried out an espresso blend with some robusta beans in it, stronger brew, got much worse than by the usual arabica.
Also read a kinda scary suggestion, that the impending-doom flavour of DPH is actually because of the strain it puts on your heart. No idea if that´s correct or no, but that would have a very bad implication on me keeping the coffee up.

Anti-Vaxxer Campaign Proposition

Hey guys! It's been many years since I've been on here, but for some reason this site randomly came to mind as a source for an assessment I'm currently working on. I thought I'd post on /med/ as it is crucial that my responses come from people with at least basic knowledge on the matter.

Basically I need to come up with a campaign to raise awareness and ultimately increase the rates of people and children being vaccinated in the Northern Rivers in addition to countering the anti-vax movement.

Considering the areas, the target demographic and possible risks, I've constructed several ideas and narrowed it down to the following:

  • Series of animated comics featured in public transport , shopping centres etc:
Targeted primarily towards children, features a relatable character (child) that undergoes several scenarios in which he/she is faced with a dilemma caused by the topic of anti-vaxxing. This campaign is designed to grab the attention of children with the idea that they will ask and/or pester their caretakers about the issue. The animations will be bright, colourful, and relatively consistent.

  • "Black Plague" Enactment:
A series of visual (and very out-there) street performances which illustrates a dramatisation of the effects of failing to vaccinate. This campaign is designed to be really unavoidable - would occur at several times of a day in busy city areas and would show actors pretending to be suffering from the effects of measles and other highly contagious viruses. No one likes seeing sick people in public - especially in high density areas where illnesses spread rapidly, and this campaign will really bring the issue to light. The actors would hand out brochures/flyers to people that advocate getting vaccinated.

Both these ideas are obviously not without risks, and contain problems, but my goal here is to get feedback on each so that I can choose one to include in my final project.

Anti-vaccine people tend to be anti-liberal, Just by default. So the influx of immigrants 'seeking asylum' thanks trump.<<<<<< Are bringing into the US diseased we do have stored, but are seeing diseases we ave not seen for
decades and decades, what we, as the CDC is or was concerned had been
long sense eradicated, at least in the US. Have now re-surfaced.

The anit-vax people are few. Let them be, I guess, if their religious beliefs like pestilence and disease.

Like this, we are cattle USA, we inoculate beefs, cattle, with all kids of hormones, vaccines. That are detectable in humans and water tables. Yet, if it means anti-liberal, all is fine. Our family breeds cattle to the healthy environments, some immensities that transfer from wild say elk to domestic cattle, we can do that.

The black plague is actually possible. In our world vaults we hold, underneath nuclear detonation proof bunkers. So if need be, we can immediatly create vaccines if the need arises. In mass quantities to inoculate populations as a needed basis.

The sci-fi movies, where ( i am rambling but prove me wrong) There are zombie movies. Where living and living dead are dangerous.

Rabies, for example can take a basic house dog to tun rabid. Which the disease will eventually kill the dog. The plague as mentioned, doe exist in many prairie dog colonies.

(back when, the black plague was misunderstood about where it came from and how it propagated.) I believe cats, especially black cats were viewed as bad luck, furthering the plague, by destroying the cats, the rats, were uncontrolled. Which were the main (hosts) carriers of the plague.

Reality, any disease could overwhelm populations. Ebola, the right was complying about liberals in general, Drs without borders, etc, fighting the disease in africa. Some had died. As it was easily transmittable.

Considering the CDC and the EHA (world health organization,) the could have spread, to a small right-wing town you ours.

my conscious breathing always causes my body to tense up, especially the pc and back/shoulder muscles. More so when breathing in, and easier to relax when breathing out. But I think whats normal for most is to be able to relax the body irregardless of when one is breathing in or out. for me its like when I want to breath in through my nose, automatically my body tenses up and especially the pc muscle. the pc/bc muscle is constantly twitching throughout the day but its not big of a hassle, but would like to be able to relax ... basically somehow programmed to tense some muscles involountary when breathing in and its hard to figure out how to simply relax the body independent of wether breathing in or out ... One time i took that speed drug and it was like i was more relaxed and had better control of body-relaxation and i could more easily see those automatic tense mechanisms , although had to be very focused ...

anyone else hav this experience?

Could be anxiety. The amphetamine though does dilate bronchial airways in the lungs and among other things can give one a sense of euphoria, or well being. Which could possibly have helped with anxiety as well. Maybe try to acquire an
anti-anxiety medicine. Like a benzodiazapine and see if maybe anxiety may be causing difficulty relaxing and breathing as you should.

Environment, allergies, can cause breathing difficulties. Maybe try an an anti-histimine, benedryl. As for the amphetamine relation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudoephedrine you can get over the counter at your pharmacy. If one of these work, that may help narrow down what is causing issues, if they are related to anxiety or something like allergies. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is often used for anxiety.

Surprisingly, the common "take deep and slow breaths" to calm anxiety naturally can actually cause anxiety in some people!

OP do you sit at a desktop a lot? Sometimes doing nothing because some process is going on but you have to stay there in case something goes wrong? One will find oneself finding false ideas about the most regular things and then it gets into anxiety. The back/shoulder muscles thing tells me something like that could be occurring, especially if your chair isn't the kind you bought after trying 30 at Staples, you gotta find one that follows computer ergonomics and that fits your body best, believe me...and sometimes it's necessarily the 800 dollars battlestations chairs, the one I use right now costed 120 bucks and it was the one I felt most comfortable in.

For the most part, my ear is much better condition relative to where it was in my previous thread. I do have some significant pressure buildup in the ear though, along with Fluticasone spray. I was told to pop my ears often throughout the day and the pressure would subside over time. It is cathartic but, is there much risk or a possibility of overdoing it?

I can at times feel my ears pop simply riding an elevator. Or rapid altitude differences.
I assume there could be certainly overdoing it. Once the pressure buildup
ends, it's like wow. Wondering, if the spray you are currently taking is working
for the best results. Too much, too little, other options as far as the medication treating these.

We have Flonase (and a home brand) we can ask the pharmacist for OTC nowadays here, since 2019 allergy season was known to be particularly awful, I can attest to that. Now summer's almost over and I only ordered new filters for my air filtering device, which I recommend you have some kind of. It's quite cheap, the home brand fluticasone is just 18 bucks, do you recommend it for somebody with sinus / left facial sinus and some Eustachian tube dysfunction. I got something real annoying, that does get better with time, called Tubular Dysfunction, which means your physical configuration of those facial structures are naturally a bit defective and build up and release of pressure is a very common thing.

I know it didn't help with allergies when my ex-ENT (got rid of him after the surgery he's done on my nose, had he went just a bit farther I'd be stuck with something called Empty-Nose Syndrome, but as I saw the 2 procedure sheets I had to read and then sign, one was "cauterization" which is basically breaking your nose cartilage like a punch in the face, and the other, the reason why I got surgery, deviated septum. Thankfully, I refused to do the cauterization, the Doc didn't mention it and I didn't feel good about having sides of my mucus membranes in the nose to be removed, but he went ahead anyway and stopped halfway when he was informed, while I was knocked out on the operating table that I didn't sign for that surgery.

Then the 5 days with huge metal prongs in my nostrils, which I had to go back to the hospittal for him to pull out, it hurt significantly on the left side of my nose as he did that and since then the "Tubular Dysfunction" started, apparently. At least I was prescribed a lot of 60/300 codeine pills, as an opiate naive person, taking 3-4 of those was enough to make most of my post-surgery time quite the vacation.

Had he only prescribed me some strong antihistamine like promethazine, hydroxyzine, hell even cyclizine was still available back in 2003, come to think of it, the best of them all Triprolidine was too, but nope, you're allergic to birch, I'll give you a nasal spray...uhm...when that didn't work then it was time for surgery to him.

Let's have a discussion about vaccination. It's a contentious topic, so a heightened sense of civility (and maybe a little weed) is encouraged. As anyone who has posted on chans long enough knows, when people are passionate about a topic, the greatest barrier to discussion becomes hostility and, sometimes, tribalism. Just look back at /pol/ if you don't believe me.

Months ago, I found a vaccine thread on /n/, related to NY Mayor Bill De Blasio forcing numerous communities to be legally required to receive various vaccines. The thread was largely in support of vaccination, though not necessarily in support of forced-vaccination, and so I made my best case against vaccination, specifically against the MMR and MMR-v vaccines (measles). To my surprise, nobody had any real refutation for my claims, and the thread almost instantly went silent and died.

This thread exists because I found someone who managed to refute many of my claims that I used in that thread: my brother, a scientist who makes vaccines for Big Pharma Hentai. He has proven many of my main arguments invalid or incorrect, so between him, and my best friend who studies vaccines as a graduate student, I have two incredible sources to discuss vaccination with, one who is strongly pro-vaccination (brother) and one is one strongly against the practice (friend).

I'm telling you all of this because I believe I can offer you something that opposes your view (the point of that being to stimulate meaningful discussion), regardless of whether you're for or against vaccination. So what is your take on the topic? Whatever your stance, I invite you to discuss your point of view, and I also compel you to bring your strongest piece(s) of evidence that supports your position here for scrutiny.

My parents were never vaccinated for measles, for them it was just like getting a very bad flu, some throat or er ear infection caused by a virus and you toughed it out, some kids even thinking sweet, no school for a little while

As for me as a kid, I was only out of school for a long time from some virus in my guts, shat liquid and felt ill for close to 20 days, then the bitch of a teacher I had in 5th grade didn't do much to get me back on track, making it my shittiest primary school year, grade-wise. Man it was terrible, the pediatrician checked for a lot of things that were bacteria related and I had none of that.

I can say that the MANDATORY shot for everyone who's going to school or college (2 year old to 20 year old), in october 2001, as there was all of this anthrax going around just 5 hours south of me and even not that far due to the still unexplained 94 year old granny who got anthrax in Connecticut and died. It was a vaccine against 2 kinds of meningitis, "Menjugate", I know that I felt strangely detached after getting the shot on 2 oct 2001 according to my Health Booklet, basically a little book your parents are given at birth up here in this province where medical entries of importance are added, which includes vaccines I had as a kid, that one was the last entry, I didn't get the shots again at 18 like you're supposed to for 3 of them, it was 75 dollars, screw that.

All's I know is that an early 80's kid wasn't swarmed by vaccines as much as now, I have about 5 or 6 vaccines as a kid, all were single ingredient, MMR was first tested in 85 by the makers, after 3000 kids trying it, there was so many ill babies, it was banned. Then they shipped it to the UK where the same pretty much happened, then they brought it to Australia, where it stayed more than a few months, more like 4-5 years and then it was banned again (I think) or not used so much, but that explains how come I know so many austists from Australia online and they tend to be 5-10 years younger than me (yeah I'm getting old..37, ouch) and then in 1994 was brought to America and the use never stopped and suddenly there's huge concerns starting about 10 years later and movies and stuff about normal kids degenerating mentally instead of improving.

I just looked at that Health Booklet, my mom wrote in I was "clean", meaning I took a shit by myself at 11 months, man I was a smart kid.

Other random question regarding vaccines : Why are idiot savants in the US Army and such try to make vaccines for bacteria? (Anthrax being the prime example), that makes no biological sense and guys like Tim McVeigh was known to have had about 15 experimental vaccines tested on him in the first gulf war and in the small force left behind in Kuwait when the war was "over". They don't help their case with such non-science tried to be forced into science? It's the only official reason why we even have biological weapons stockpiles in the West.

Also the flu....it's always the flu from the previous season, we had flu shots in the 90's and everybody knew they were useless and expensive and nobody bothered.

Yeah I forgot to say, I got my robe and tinfoil hat, but that Meningitis shot on October 2nd 2001, in college, and it was mandatory for everyone 2-20 except for some doctor's recommendation against it, which is weird, kids get to start to decide for almost everything when they're 14 here. I know that I felt pretty out of it and zombie-like and back then I was in my second semester of college, I wasn't even toking regularly yet then, it was a sometimes thing, I got drunk often, but mostly in the summer, I was clean as a whistle and I remember feeling very weird but it passed...it's kind of strange that it coincided with 9/11 and the one-two punch that was the Cheney anthrax attacks >.> (why did he have the NRC stop all proof of the radionucleide signature that was telling them where it really came from and that Ivins had nothing to do with it. nb

if you have socialized healthcare or insurance just get a (not really called dentist) to do it.
hope you can get er' done.

So I'm going to Japan for a little over two months, from Nov - Jan

Last time I was there I caught some rare shitty flu strain and was actually hospitalized for days in a rural city where absolutely no one spoke English and I know about 100 words. SO sick, despite having my flu shot and being a generally healthy and fit person, that was one of the top five times in my life I was genuinely convinced I was gonna die.

So my thought is, maybe I could get myself sick while I'm still in good ol North America, and time it so I'm basically fully recovered by the time I set foot on a plane, and my immune system will be on high alert. Still gonna get the flu shot too before I bounce.

I'm just wondering what would be a good timeline, and what would be the best way to go about doing this? I'd like to not be obliterated, but fairly ill. Has anyone else done something like this? Kinda like self immunization I guess?

Suggestions welcome.

Bunch of complete aspies in this thread who do not understand correlation does not equal causation. I hope all of you fucks die of the flu.

OP, get your flu shot. Not too sure your other plan is gonna work out, but maybe give yourself a good three weeks before you fly out, to the day you deliberately infect yourself. I recommend playing with a small, sick child (obvs one related to younot a rando but you'd probably get sick in jail) or riding a bus or subway while eating cheetos without washing your hands.

I'd like to report I have successfully made myself very ill.
I bought a giant size bag of really sauce-covered beef jerky and have been eating it by hand in many locations in my workplace over the last three days, and licking my fingers clean afterwards.

Now I'm coughing productively, my sinuses are blocked with severe post-nasal drip and I feel like trash.

I achieved the first half of my experiment, which I wasn't sure would happen. And I don't know how this will turn out, but I assume I can kick whatever has colonized me in the next three weeks or so or at least grab antivirals/antibiotics by the end of two weeks if I don't.

How does one deal with chronic pain?

I was in a car accident 8 months ago that has severely fucked me over. Most everything has healed now, but my back is always a low-grade annoyance that occasionally flares up into agonizing spasms that leave me unable to move for days.

It's very frustrating to live like this. I'm in physical rehab 3x a week, see a doc regularly - nothing works. And I'm not going to take pain meds for life. This is fucked.

I got you OP. For one, seeing your doctor and going to rehab are all great things, even if they don't seem like they're doing anything. I know you said you don't want to take pain meds for life, so you might be open to hearing me out.

Here's what I recommend, as someone who literally only has first-aid level training (and some non-professional experience in public health and nutrition) and shouldn't be recommending anything at all: make dietary changes to reduce chronic inflammation. A lot of different foods (mostly animal products, but not exclusively) contribute to chronic inflammation, which both causes pain and prevents healing. For me, it's my broken thumb. It's not broken any more but when I eat like shit for weeks on end and don't move around enough, it starts hurting chronically. Other injuries flare up too for the same reasons, a bum ankle, a damaged wrist- but when I keep myself eating healthy, drinking lots of water, and getting exercise/blood flow, I find that my pain evaporates. I've been doing this for a few years now, ever since I quit heroin basically, and I'm finding that my injuries aren't merely subsiding in pain, but are getting better! My wrist, which has been a problem every since I injured it years ago, has gotten to the point over the last year where I can do most things again with no pain at all, and a greater feeling of stability. Same with my shoulder.

So yeah if that sounds good, let me know and we can talk more about diet. Next up is exercise. I'm sure your physical therapist is working toward this goal with you already, but it's worth saying that your back will prosper if you strengthen the supporting muscle groups that prop it up. Talk with your therapist about that, and be active and consistent, even after you stop seeing them. Those guys see tons of people, and they know best that none of those people will keep up with the work to maintain recovery, and they accept it begrudgingly. If you show them that you're serious about healing yourself, they'll be more likely to commit to you too.

The other trick is cutting out bad foods without going insane. If you can learn to cook some healthy foods, you'll have a much easier time transitioning to a diet that focuses on avoiding inflammation. Maybe go to /nom/ and ask for recipes, or ask and we can chat about some of my staples.

Back injuries are scary. Just remember that the human body is OP as fuck, and you're not alone in healing yourself.

try getting some massage from an experienced therapist. won't fix your spine or discs or whatever but reducing muscle tension can mitigate pain
