    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. curious_kitt 25 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    20 something female Med student here: I would actually appreciate suggestions on how to best handle these situations. It honestly happens too often. I consider myself a “bold” person, but for some reason I really struggle with addressing these situations, especially when I’m rounding with the whole medical team and everyone else just laughs it off. Thanks for the guidance!

    The sign in the back just fits.

    [–] A good cooperation curious_kitt 9 points ago in AnimalsBeingBros

    Fun fact: Australian Shepherds are not from Australia. I believe ranchers in the western US/Rocky mountains developed the breed to help with herding. The name is a total misnomer!

    [–] He's a doctor curious_kitt 205 points ago in insanepeoplefacebook

    This. I’m in medical school and have seen two people in the past 3 months with this. Both were young, one in his late 30s, the other in her twenties. If you’re going to go to a chiropractor please don’t do traumatic adjustments on your neck!!!

    [–] What is something extremely dangerous that most people aren’t aware of? curious_kitt 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Yes! And those IV vitamin bags that some health concierge companies are pitching as hangover prevention or whatever. We had a lady in a coma from electrolyte shifts after getting one. I thought it was just vitamins and saline, but maybe they administered the wrong ratio or something?

    [–] What is something extremely dangerous that most people aren’t aware of? curious_kitt 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Chiropractic adjustments are more risky than people know, so be sure your provider knows their stuff. I’m sure it is rare and you need to have underlying risk factors, but I’ll never forget my young patient who was paralyzed and couldn’t communicate after a neck adjustment led to a traumatic vertebral artery dissection.

    Disclaimer: pretty much all medical procedures come with risk. Just weigh the need for it, the providers expertise, and your individual risk.

    [–] What character has an undiagnosed mental disorder everyone just ignores? curious_kitt 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I think Patty from Insatiable has borderline personality disorder. The splitting and blaming kept me watching because it felt like a glimpse into some of my patients’ heads.

    [–] What character has an undiagnosed mental disorder everyone just ignores? curious_kitt 4 points ago in AskReddit

    I always thought Luna Lovegood had schitzotypal personality disorder. Also, narcissistic personality disorder fit Lockheart so well. Mad Eye Moody could have had paranoid personality disorder too!

    [–] Students of Reddit, what is something your teacher did that really pissed the whole class? curious_kitt 15 points ago in AskReddit

    My honors organic chemistry 2 college professor deducted points for asking questions (in class or during office hours.) Total prat.

    [–] What could go wrong? curious_kitt 12 points ago in MurderedByWords

    We can’t forget he also killed at least 20% of the Tibetan population through war and genocide.

    [–] There’s probably at least one anti-vax mother out there whose children got autism anyway and she probably feels like a fucking asshole curious_kitt 2 points ago in Showerthoughts

    I had a patient who’s situation was exactly this. He had autism, and his mom wasn’t only against vaccines but refused to give him constipation medicine because her naturopathic provider said it can harm autistic children some how. They were at the ED for vague fussiness that ended up being because of.... constipation.

    I felt bad for all parties involved. The kid deserved better and the mom was getting bad information and lacked the ability to critically think and protect her family.

    [–] What is the most ridiculous thing you have seen at a party? curious_kitt 2 points ago in AskReddit

    My friend‘s tv was stolen from in front of our faces and we didn’t notice. I think the inebriation level must have been high enough that we didn’t see someone walk in the room we were in and then out the front door with a flat screen.

    We were in high school and she was terrified since her parents were coming home the next day. Someone made a drunken genius plan to throw a rock through the window so they could call the cops and credit it to a break in. I spent a lot of the night talking them out of getting us all an MIP.

    [–] Parents or siblings of Reddit, what name or word was mispronounced by a child, and habitually stuck throughout the years? curious_kitt 10 points ago in AskReddit

    This is reverse, but my dad is a refugee from an Asian country with an accent that I don’t notice. I was well into college when I learned that “cunstered” isn’t a word. As in, “why are you wearing pants with holes? In my culture that’s cunstered very bad!” Yeah, I though it was “considered” with a cultural connotation. Super embarrassing freshman anthropology class.

    [–] [NSFW] What's a time you tried to be sexy/erotic for your SO and it failed miserably? curious_kitt 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Not me, but I’m high school my friend tried to give her boyfriend her first blow job. She sliced his penis with her braces and he had to go the ER because it wouldn’t stop bleeding. They broke up soon after.

    [–] US citizens of Reddit, what are some tips, Dos, and Don't for a foriegner at a wedding to have a good time? curious_kitt 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Don’t be the drunkest person there. But dance and have fun!

    And if you’re a woman or wear dresses don’t wear white or anything too skimpy or overly extravagant to outshine the bride. Wear something classy, modest, and simple. I never thought that stuff mattered but my aunt came from another country to my cousin’s wedding wearing the most extravagant white dress. The bride was too gracious to say anything but my aunt got nasty glares the whole night from other guests.

    [–] People of Reddit who have heard someone say their “dying words,” what were they and how did they impact you? curious_kitt 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I was too young to remember but my family always tells the story of my great grandma who’s health started to deteriorate, and like many others it hit her mind. She was non-verbal for a long time and didn’t seem to respond much to the outside world. I was a newborn when my parents took me to see her and they say it was like she “woke up.” She looked at me, smiled really big, and said “baby” before slipping back into her stupor. She passed soon after.

    I feel really lucky we got to meet even if I was just a nugget. Knowing I made such a strong, badass woman smile even once helps me on my bad days.

    [–] What's the dumbest rule you had in school? curious_kitt 1 points ago in AskReddit

    There’s wasn’t, but since it’s medical school it’s harder to find people to tutor. But perhaps I’m making excuses?

    [–] What's the dumbest rule you had in school? curious_kitt 2 points ago in AskReddit

    My school wouldn’t let you get a tutor or help in classes unless you failed a test. Another teacher had a rule where every time you asked a question he took a percent off your grade.

    [–] The Exit Drug | Full Documentary (2018)- Cannabis as an Alternative to Opiates for chronic pain curious_kitt 1 points ago in Documentaries

    I’m not denying that people can use and be completely functional and never have a psychotic episode or other negative outcome. I was just saying that people underestimate the potential. Potential encompasses functional to worst-case scenarios.

    I think people should be educated and aware of possible outcomes so you can, using your example, choose to wear a helmet or not try to ride a bike while drunk. Or choose lower potency marijuana products or not use if you have a personal or family history of psychosis or schizophrenia.

    [–] I don’t want an 18yr Parrot curious_kitt 9 points ago in instant_regret

    I was so upset when I didn’t see this first in response. Frantically scrolling so the song can finish in my head... thank you, kind person.

    [–] The Exit Drug | Full Documentary (2018)- Cannabis as an Alternative to Opiates for chronic pain curious_kitt 8 points ago in Documentaries


    Thank you for saying this. I am rotating through psychiatric emergency services right now and it shocked me how many people came in with psychotic episodes likely triggered by marijuana. I feel like people, myself included, underestimate that “pot potential.”

    [–] Bella the chicken likes the ant game app too curious_kitt 137 points ago in likeus

    That sounds like therapy sessions in the making. I’m so sorry that happened to you.
