Duke is up on the website! :D

This is my most popular of my blogs so I’m going to spam you with my totally adoptable and totally wonderful foster cat! He’s in need of a forever home, and ready for one ASAP :)

"Duke is an absolutely gorgeous domestic long hair, and he’s 6 years old. He’s a huge sweetheart who loves belly rubs and hanging out with his person, and he’ll spend most of his days sitting by you or watching out the window. He is a little shy at first, especially around men, but he warms up to new people fairly quickly. He gets along okay with other cats, too. Duke was surrendered for having trouble using his litterbox, but since being on treatment for his diabetes, he hasn’t had any issues at his foster home. Duke would make a great companion for someone looking for a sweet and laid back cat!”

High Protein Milkshake Recipe:

I don’t remember if I’ve posted this, but I drank it a lot after my surgery because I was supposed to eat waay more protein than I could digest in real foods. I thought it might be helpful for anyone else with similar issues!

Recipe:
1/2 - 1 cup of tofu
2 cups (or less for thicker shake) milk or milk substitute
1/4 tsp of salt
1+ tsp vanilla extract
2+ tbsp of cocoa powder or chocolate syrup
2 tbsp of peanut butter
1 serving of protein powder

Protein content:
1 cup tofu = 20g

2 cups milk:
almond- about 2g
soy- 12g
dairy- 12g

peanut butter:
8g

protein powder:
20ish (i use vitamin shoppe soy protein powder, which is 26g per serving.)

So you can get around a day’s serving if you’re using all of it and all the highest protein stuff, which is really good, even if you just drink it throughout the day (all in one sitting is a looot to digest for me anyway.)

Edit: adding in ouyangdan’s suggestion: “ouyangdan said: If you don’t like protein powder and aren’t vegan, greek yoghurt goes well in this & adds protein.”

Probably a long shot, but do any of my followers train service dogs?

once i went to a doctor because a medication they gave me wasn’t working and also hurt my stomach because it was an anti-inflammatory, so instead of prescribing a different medication that might work they prescribed another medication to treat the side effects of the first medication. except they didn’t actually prescribe a medication that treated stomach aches from anti-inflammatories, they just prescribed me anti-emetics and told me to drink tea and sent me home to pay for a prescription for a symptom I didn’t have without treating any real issue and if that doesn’t describe american healthcare i don’t know what does.

what they should have prescried is a proton pump inhibitor or other type of stomach acid reducer

Things able-bodied people need to stop saying to the chronically ill.

ahaze:

diaryofaspoonie:

• “At least you’re not dying!”
• “You’re only disabled if you let yourself be.”
• “You need to tell yourself you’re going to get better, else you won’t.”
• “But you can’t be in pain ALL the time, don’t exaggerate.”
• “You don’t LOOK ill.”
• “There’s so many people worse off than you.”
• “I’m sure you don’t REALLY need help.”
• “Sometimes it’s easier to just give up.”
• “Stop being so negative.”

I love especially the last one.
And they do sometimes come from the very same pepple who also say the other shit.

Hank Green on Living with a Chronic Disease (via doingthediagnosis)

Wow. This is so true.

(via endometriosis)

(via helloelloh)

There’s a couple of stages of having a chronic disease; there’s the being sick - like suddenly you’re sick and you don’t know what’s wrong. And that can be super terrifying depending on how severe your symptoms are. Then there’s the being diagnosed part which comes along with this word chronic, which inside of it hiding there is the word incurable - which no one says out loud but which is the worst word. It means, not only has your life changed, your life has changed irrevocably.

professionaldaydreamer2 said:SO MUCH YES TO NEEDING MORE DRS TRAINED IN THIS.

Right!? I mean, if our top experts in EDS things are backed up this far, clearly the issues they treat aren’t THAT rare, and more doctors should realize it’s legitimate and start practicing in these areas!
