When I was 17 my appendix ruptured because I thought I was just having period cramps and didn’t go to the hospital so don’t tell me PMS symptoms are no big deal
this actually happened to me during my math final and i didn’t think anything of it and when i was later admitted to the hospital my math prof was asking me ‘you didn’t have to take the final! why didn’t you tell me it hurt?!?!’ and i told him i’ve had cramps worse.
he gave me 100
This is actually an extremely common occurrence simply because in sex ed they don’t teach you how to tell the difference between menstrual cramps and other more serious pains. The way to tell the difference between cramps and appendicitis is that while menstrual cramps are generalized toward the middle of the stomach below the belly button, pain from a swollen or burst appendix will start in the middle of the stomach and relocate to only the lower right side, even lower than menstrual cramps, and is a very localized pain. It also comes on extremely suddenly and will worsen over time or when you make a sudden movement, like a cough or a sneeze.
Basically, if you’re feeling any sort of pain, even if it’s menstrual cramps, don’t hesitate to tell the school nurse or a parent, or if you’re out of school and home even make a doctor’s appointment. Chances are if your cramps are that bad there’s something they can do to improve that as well.
I am boosting the shit out of that reply, because I am twenty-fucking-five years old and did not know how to tell the two pains apart
I am 39 now, but starting back when I was *14*, I was getting pain from burst ovarian cysts that put me in the hospital every 4 years. Every single doc that would poke and prod and check xrays told me I was having appendix spasms (WHAT EVEN???). FOR 15 YEARS. Then I finally got a doc familiar with women’s reproductive health that I had told about the previous stuff that had always been told to me, and he got this completely incredulous look before replying ‘What a load of ridiculous crap from those idiots. There’s no such thing.’
He then taught me how to tell the difference between burst cyst pain, terrible cramps, and appendicitis. That freaked me the hell out because I had been having this issue since I was 14 and not one single doc bothered to teach me how to know the difference. I can’t even imagine if one of those instances had actually been appendicitis and one of those docs had waved me off telling me I just had bad cramps.
In addition to that info up there, burst cysts cause pain in the same are as cramps, but since they occur in the tubes, it will localize on either the right of left side of where cramps happen. BUT they are abrupt and stabbing in nature and can limit your ability to even stand because the pain makes you want to stay doubled over. They generally are pretty harmless though- pain killers will help, but bed rest and heat pads will help your body deal with them. If they are recurring, see an obgyn about getting them checked out- they could mark a larger, but treatable issue.
Two more appendix tidbits, based on my own appendicitis adventure:
-Pressing on the lower left side of your abdomen will increase the pain on the lower right (where the appendix is located). It’s called Rovsing’s sign! And trust me, it’s a noticeable difference; appendicitis pains are awful, but palpitating the lower left side turns it up to 11.
-Appendicitis is often accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Lots of vomiting, in my case. I don’t mean “I feel queasy and food doesn’t sound good,” I mean “the worst hangover you can imagine, but MORE.”
Appendicits is the precursor to a ruptured appendix, so if you catch it at this stage, good news! You are going to need surgery ASAP, but nothing has exploded yet. YOU SHOULD STILL GET IT CHECKED OUT RIGHT AWAY, because once it does burst, it’s dangerous. Mine hadn’t burst yet when they removed it, and I was out of the hospital the next morning; my classmate whose appendix had ruptured had to stay for about a week.

Do you ever just find yourself in the mood for Protective!Derek
Derek snarling at someone who’s taunting him with a threat to Stiles
Derek growling under his breath from the next room (where he was told to wait) as Stiles faces up to the Asshole of The Week with nothing but his sharp wits and even sharper tongue
Derek finding Stiles unconscious and pressing worried kisses to his face, forcing back the instinct to snuffle and whine into his skin, begging him to just be okay before turning and unleashing hell on whoever hurt him
Derek biting his tongue as they come up with strategy that puts Stiles in the line of fire, because he knows his argument will make the stupid stubborn little shit he unwittingly fell in love with even more determined to do it
Derek breaking down a solid oak door to get to Stiles, to protect him, to throw his body between Stiles and whatever is making his heart race anxiously and his sweat acidic with adrenaline, only to stumble into the room and see that the situation is playing right into Stiles’ hands, if the lazy, self-satisfied smirk on his face is anything to go by UwU

Oh my god it’s Sterek in the style of the Secret of Kells I’m so happy rn I could cry. OP is the artist (thought I’d point it out since I just googled for like ten minutes for the source because I am an idiot) and you can find more of their work on deviantart.
mostlyemotional asked: please get started on protective!Stiles though. please we need it do it for the people.
Stiles calmly responding to whatever cutting jibe someone says to try and get under Derek’s skin with that person’s deepest, darkest insecurity, and smiling about it.
Stiles hanging up with a ‘sure, babe, I’m at home right now, just getting into bed, call you when I wake up, okay? Love you,” and throwing the phone on to the back seat of his jeep, shifting gear, eyes flitting to Allison on the passenger side. “He doesn’t suspect a thing. Now let’s go educate this fucker on why we don’t go just go around kidnapping people’s werewolf boyfriends.”
Stiles sitting at the bar of the fancy restaurant Derek’s waiting tables in - the part time job and community college is his ‘fresh start’; he’s keeping his head down and not growling at even the most demanding, assholeish patrons - and pretending they’re strangers when Derek asks what he’s doing there. It all becomes slightly more clear when he ‘bumps into’ the cougar who’s pinched Derek’s butt a total of four times tonight, spilling water down her front, and loudly declaring “oh shit, I hope your dress doesn’t go see-through, hate for you to be leered at and objectified by strangers when you’re just minding your own business….”
Stiles unexpectedly cutting the sentence off with click of the safety coming off a police-issue handgun, right by the hunter’s head, and Derek raising his own in surprise to see him there, eyes cold, shoulders tense. “Hate to break it to ya, man, but the only one who gets to tie this one up for entertainment is me.”
Stiles trawling through their shared Netflix account and giving terrible ratings to any shows or movies depicting house fires, burned out ruins, or people being trapped in smoky places so that they won’t show up in the recommendations. “You didn’t have to do that—it’s fine, really. I’ve dealt with it.” “Shut the fuck up and watch House of Cards with me.” Hands tangling together, a squeeze of reassurance, a responding grip of gratitude.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.
