Why do so many people in D1 missing legs?

Heroin users often get abscesses, particularly when the drug is mixed with corrosive substances which destroy the veins. If they don't get proper medical treatment, the area can turn gangrenous and sometimes the whole limb needs to be amputated. When they visit needle exchanges, the nurses will o

Any personal achievements during the lockdown ? ?

I mean, I'm sorry for outshining the rest of ye, but I just scored 202 points for a single word in internet Scrabble. Not even a crazy long obscure word, it was "touches". All about placement!

What book are you reading atm?? CHAPTER TWO

Just finished Cyntoia Brown's memoir "Free Cyntoia", first book in ages I've read in one sitting ... even though I'd already watched the Netflix documentary and knew the eventual outcome! The book is excellent. For those who don't know her story, she was sentenced to life in prison for killing a m

What book are you reading atm?? CHAPTER TWO

I'm reading Kate Holden's memoir "In My Skin". She's a normal intelligent educated woman from a perfectly lovely family, who experiments with heroin and ends up completely addicted, and works as a prostitute to fund her addiction. She doesn't hold back on the details, it's a fascinating read. Inc

Anxiety and depression thread (Please read OP)

Yes my psychiatrist says the same, works for most people with very few side effects. It's a good one to start off with. Hope it works for you!! You mightnt notice a difference for a couple of weeks, as it takes time to build up in your system, so stick with it!

Anxiety and depression thread (Please read OP)

I'm on it for years, anywhere between 50mg and 200mg, no side effects ... tbh I've never felt it really makes much of a difference, but my psychiatrist prefers to keep me on it. I'm on a lot of other meds too ... I'm on a pretty high dose of Seroquel and going on that was the huge turning point in m

Why does everyone prefer houses over apartments?

I've always much preferred apartments. It feels so much more secure ... does anyone know the stats regarding burglaries in houses vs apartments? I would imagine burglaries are much less common in apartments

Women's Health Issues: LadyGardening for Dummies

I've had the Mirena in a couple of years, I've had no issues with it ... the only thing is, I've never worn a tampon since getting it in, as I heard the tampon can get caught up in the strings and pull it out. :eek: Does anyone know if there's any truth to this ... I'd really like to start wearin

Home Alone

Nope no matter how mature and sensible they were, it's too long, and too serious a burden of responsibility to put on the 12 year old. Also it's the kind of arrangement you'd need to build up very gradually, like start off with much smaller periods of time. But even at that, I just think it's too
