I think we all need an aggressively positive spider friend in our lives
Most people are unaware that symptoms of heart attacks in females are different than those of males. Please signal boost. (Based on this post, information from WebMD.)
Memorize this shit. No lie. You would be terrified by the number of people, even in healthcare, who have no idea that heart attack symptoms present differently for females.
I wouldn’t be alive today if my heart attack hadn’t been “male” enough that it was recognizable.
[Text reads: Heart attacks experienced by women are very different from male symptoms. Not all women experience chest pains: it may be in the neck, shoulder, or the jaw. Nausea, shortness of breath, unusual fatigue, and even upper abdominal discomfort, similar to indigestion. Signal boost. This can save lives.]
so like this helped my mom out in a pinch, wish i had reblogged this before
"If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, still respect them. Do not allow the actions of others to decrease your good manners, because you represent yourself, not others. "
Oh goodness, honey! YOU NEED TO EAT!! That’s the number one way to lose weight in a healthy way… EAT!!! Eat healthy and eat ENOUGH!!! Oh my gosh, I eat like there’s no tomorrow. All day everyday! Starving yourself will help you lose weight, but not in the good way and not only will you not be healthy, you wont look healthy. Trust someone who’s already gone through EDNOS and beat it, it’s a completely bassackwards way of thinking. You want to be healthy, but you’re killing yourself. This is making you UNhealthy. I’m not going to go over how much you should be eating/burning/etc. Because I already answered a similar question to that last week HERE, but I DO want to help you. You’re developing an eating disorder, or it may already be full-blown depending on how long you’ve been doing this. (according to the DSM-V, eating disorders become diagnosable if you’ve thrown up 1-2 time per week for three months) I understand how hard it is to lose weight, how bad you want it and how it seems that the only answer is to cut out your food, but that is the disorder taking over your brain. If you don’t get a hold of it now, it will be much harder to get over in the future, trust me. That little voice in your head will get stronger. Don’t listen to you brain when it tells you food is the enemy. Listen to it when it tells you it’s hungry. EAT. Food is not the enemy, there are no bad foods, just a bad relationship with foods. Food is there to help you, to nourish you, to be your friend and help your body love you and you love it back. You WANT food, hell, you NEED food. You say you’re going to school so can I assume you’re pretty young? 12-25? Do you want to grow old enough to see your mother become a grandmother? Do you want to have a healthy relationship with a lover? Do you want to make your friends and family proud? Do you want to get married and have kids? (If you haven’t already) Do you want to watch your family grow older and create new memories and traditions? Then my goodness, EAT! My cousin’s best friend did what you’re doing and died at the age of 16. Throwing up her food tore a hole in her esophagus and caused her heart to give out while she was driving and crashed. Please, honey, PLEASE eat. If you want to be healthy, this is not the way. You WILL either kill yourself or end up in a hospital. If you believe it’s getting to be too much and you can’t stop, please contact SOMEONE. THIS is an organization that might help you. If not, you could probably google many many more and find some in your area. My family helped me so so much. If my mother hadn’t caught me, I don’t know if I would be here today. Talk to your family, they’re here to love you and help you along through life. Also, I am ALWAYS here if you need to talk about absolutely anything. If you feel like you haven’t eaten enough, if you feel like you’ve eaten too much, if you feel like you’re going to throw up, or if you already have. I will be here for you if you need to talk about anything. I will try to help you anyway I can!! <3
