LPT: Please consider opting-in for Organ/Tissue Donation!

LPT: Please consider opting-in for Organ/Tissue Donation!

LifeStyle, Uncategorized
A reminder that tissue and organ donation is not only for life-saving procedures... cartilage, skin and bone grafts can improve someone's recovery and quality of life immensely. Yesterday my child received an allograft for a knee injury they recently sustained, and this will help to shorten their recovery time and greatly improve their of quality of movement after recovery. They already are dealing with JIA (Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis), so without this she could've been dealing with the implications of this injury for a lifetime. We also have the opportunity to write an (optional, anonymous) letter to the donor's family, letting them know how sorry we are for their loss, but also how incredibly grateful we are for their generosity, and how much it has impacted our lives. ...
LPT : If you’re going to adopt an untrained puppy/dog, do it in the summer months (for your sake).

Something (most) people don’t consider when adopting a puppy is the weather outside when that puppy has to pee in the middle of the night. For your sake, adopt a puppy in the spring/summer because waking up to take your dog out at 2am is never fun any time of the year...But it’s even less fun when it’s 10 degrees outside in December. submitted by /u/sparklemuffin_ [link] [comments]

When you're online shopping most stores will have a policy that if you spent a certain amount (usually around $100) the shipping will be free. There have been many times where I just want something small for like $30 - $50 but then the shipping will add an extra $8-$12 on top of that. Most companies have a Hassle-Free Return policy where they will cover any shipping cost if you choose to return any items. Anytime I'm buying something and don't meet the quota, I just usually add on a few extra items (usually the same item in a different size) then once I have achieved free shipping I buy it and then return whichever one doesn't fit as well. For most people, it won't be worth it to print the return label and go to the post office but my grocery store is right beside ...
technology isn’t ruining childhoods, it’s bad parenting

technology isn’t ruining childhoods, it’s bad parenting

LifeStyle
I'm sick of hearing people say that technology is forcing children to not go outside and have fun anymore (with covid I can understand why people can't go outside) but it's aggravating hearing the argument that iPads and tablets are destroying children. No. It's bad parenting. If you give your iPad to a 4 year old and think that's ok, you're the issue, not technology. You can't blame Apple for making products that everyone uses, you can blame yourself for not treating your child to a better life. I used a laptop since the age of 3 and am heavily invested in technology today, I still had fun and scratched my elbows and knees growing up playing outside because my parents cared. If you let your child use technology so much to the point that their lives are being im...

LPT Cloves for toothache

LifeStyle, Uncategorized
Cloves are a natural anesthetic and can make your pain go away in a few minutes. I have a nerve pain in my jawline because of my wisdom teeth for the past weeks every single day. Yesterday i tried to put a clove between my teeth (no chewing) and i had no pain for 24 hours. submitted by /u/sk_mari [link] [comments]
When people with disabilities do bad Tiktoks( or anything similar for that matter) one shouldn’t say it’s beautiful just because they’re disabled. That’s discrimination. They should be treated normally. If it’s bad, it’s bad.

Encouragement is appreciated. But stop saying they’re good unless they’re good. Sometimes a nice comment might make their day. But I feel seeing exclusively positive comments might make them feel like all the comments they receive are just pity compliments. What if they’re looking for an honest feedback? Edit: Don’t flood comments with xxxtra positivity just because a person is differently abled. Respect that they have a personality beyond their disability. submitted by /u/sneggaa [link] [comments]
