I see the posts where people talk about others assuming because they are vegan they must be super healthy and only eat vegetables..

I see the posts where people talk about others assuming because they are vegan they must be super unhealthy because they “can’t eat anything”..

Why aren’t there more posts talking about people just accepting others eat a plant-based diet and don’t expect them to be a certain wway

AMEN.

cheriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii:

mundane things that hurt when you have ulnar nerve issues:

eating cereal

attempting to braid your own hair

driving

waking up in the morning with both arms bent oh god why

typing

brushing your teeth

clipping your finger nails

literally anything that requires you to be in a position where your arm is slightly bent at all

I have this same problem. Driving is tough, talking on the cell phone is painful unless I use speaker phone, drinking or eating food is tough because I often drop utensils or plates or cups due to the weak grip, brushing my teeth is painful…… and yeah literally anything that requires your arm to be bent.

This is what the car of a library employee and MLIS grad student looks like!! LOL.  The blue wig is from when I dressed up as “Thing 2” for our winter reading program.

RECOGNIZING A STROKE

Remember the ‘3’ steps, STR . Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster.
The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions :

S * Ask the individual to SMILE ..
T * = TALK. Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (eg ‘It is sunny out today’).
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS .

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call the ambulance and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

NOTE : Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is
1. Ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue.
2. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A prominent cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
