Don’t ask us why a virtual clinic had an actress acting out a disease that, we think, doesn’t come with a whole lot of moves to follow. Yet it was still able to get that very same actress to realize what she was coming down with before it became a much bigger problem. Hodgkin’s Lymphoma appears in less than two hundred thousand Americans a year, so it’s not the most common thing to see.
As the story even tells us, many people would probably just think it’s the flu. It’s a lot more serious than the flu, but this woman managed to figure it out before it got too far. At the very least, it’s one of the “better” forms of cancer, in that it’s more treatable than some of the others.
You Get Him, Kid
As scary and frightening as this story can be, especially if you know someone who suffers from dementia, it’s hilarious knowing that this little boy stepped into the room, realized that there was an unkind spirit of some nature hanging out and making fun of the great grandmother, and his very first thought was to put up his dukes and take the ghost out the way you deal with corporeal bullies. That kid is going to go far in life.
We’re imagining something a little bit like the Ghostbusters, but it’s just a kid who has boxing gloves and punches ghosts until they run away. You don’t get stuck in a ghost trap, buddy, you’re gonna get a hurting. You think you’re the scary one around here? Kid, you don’t know scary yet.
Brawl in the Examination Room
It’s not often we read a story about a doctor that includes the words “grabbing me by the shoulders and pinning me down” and we end up laughing about it, but here we are. Kids that don’t want to get shots are hard to appease – think about it. You have a big, sharp needle that is GOING to hurt when it goes into the skin and muscle.
That’s almost the entire point. To pierce inside their body. It’s a foreign object that is important, but it’s still a foreign object, and a lot of people aren’t too keen on having one of those getting jammed into their skin. This kid reacted the way we’re sure a lot of people feel like reacting when the doc tells them it’s time for a shot.
My Pounding Head
This person had to go through the nightmarish event known as anesthesia awareness. Usually, this just creates a certain dreamlike quality to the surroundings, but it’s clear that this time it was a lot worse. Getting your wisdom teeth removed is something a lot of people have to go through, and when they’re impacted, that can make it even worse – the teeth won’t even be visible, so the dentist and tech have to get all the way in there to get them out. It’s pretty rough.
Imagine being awake for it! Thankfully, the assistant did notice that this poor person was begging for a bigger hit of the sleepytime juice, and that’s the last thing to be remembered before it was all over.
No. Of Course Not. NO!
Why did this very dumb family think that their baby had all these problems? They thought the child had anxiety because it cried. They thought it had autism because it couldn’t maintain eye contact. And they thought it had bipolar disorder because it would be content one moment, and then angry the next. Even to people who don’t have a background in any of these things, it’s clear that these people were off their rockers.
They wanted psych meds for their two-WEEK-old! That’s crazy! How could they have thought that their child had all those problems, despite it being a literal newborn? Had they done so much research they’d worried themselves into a hole? Were they ultra-schooled in those things but had forgotten to pick up any common sense? It happens a lot these days.
