I SEE THESE ALL THE FUCKING TIME AND IT BUGS THE FUCK OUT OF ME.
IT EVEN DOES THE THING
Fun fact: These are apparently bacteria on your eye that you see when you’re focused enough, just like seeing them under a microscope!
And they said we couldn’t see microbes with the naked eye.
"Oh, squiggly line in my eye fluid. I see you lurking there on the periphery of my vision. But when I try to look at you, you scurry away. Are you shy, squiggly line? Why only when I ignore you, do you return to the center of my eye? Oh, squiggly line, it’s alright, you are forgiven."
I HAVE NEVER SEEN A POST MORE RELEVANT HOLY SHIT LIKE SERIOUSLY I N EVER THOUGHT ANYONE ELSE FUCKING THOUGHT ABOUT SHIT LIKE THIS
OMG I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE AND WHENEVER I LOOK AT IT, IT MOVES TO A DIFFERENT SPOT OH MY GOD
A tip from your favorite nurse
(that’d be me)
Always have eggs in your fridge
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is
Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
I did some research on this (because I do that now, fucking science get out) and it seems that this was done in the early 1900s somewhat frequently. It was used as a way to treat just about any kind of skin wound, from burn to cut to in at least one case an ulcer. It actually helps the wound heal not by preventing blood loss but by replacing part of the skin tissue and helping it grow.
It also helps in healing scars and reducing their visibility.
