Please reblog if you know anyone who might take party drugs.

I’m not an emt yet, but everytime I see someone do drugs, I just hope they’re smart enough to remember these points.

As an nurse with ER experience, same thing. Dear God please just tell us what you took. I will not tell anyone from law enforcement or your parents or whoever, I just need to know so I can save your life. Please.

you know doctor patient confidentiality? yeah that extends to EMT’s as well so basically unless you murdered somebody when they pick you up they aren’t going to tell the police because its not their responsibility to do that only if you turn up with giant stab wounds and full of lead will they call the police cause its obvious something serious has happened to you and not just some misguided judgements also it stops you getting the wrong treatment and possibly dying or becoming worse off in the waiting room of A&E.

This^ All of it.

I was doing some diabetes searching for a friend who was asking about the disease and I came across some (not so) fun stats. As of 2011 diabetes mellitus (which is now severely outdated) is the 8th leading cause of death world wide, and 7th in the United States [1,2]. With diabetes causing millions of deaths annually, you’re more likely to die from diabetes than car accidents, and these numbers are going up. In 2013 diabetes ranks closer to 3rd leading cause of death, outranking other diseases such as HIV/AIDS [3]. The American Diabetes Association predicts that by 2050, 1 in every 3 American adults will have some type of diabetes and that the deaths now caused by diabetes already outrank the combined deaths of AIDS and breast cancer[4]. I find it easy enough to assume that the world’s diabetes statistics don’t look too much different than the United States, with the majority of diabetes cases going undiagnosed. Link [5] is a spiffy site that breaks diabetes diagnoses’ down by type, gender, race, and age as well as the cost of diabetes. I found a bunch of sites, each putting the ranking of diabetes differently in their charts, but all of them place it between 8 and 3 in leading causes of deaths.

So the petition to allow transgenders join the army is a really important thing and it has a very small amount of signatures but I know we can get this one all signed since we did manage to get the nonbinary one through! 

I’m probably gonna be spamming you guys with it until it has all the signatures it needs, so please sign it
