1. Your pharmacy should have some kind of wound cleaning solution. There are different brands but usually they contain hydrogen peroxide or saline. Sometime it is enough to wash it at home with mild soap. Keep it dry and look out for any symptoms of swelling or increased pain. In some countries they also sell topical antibiotics, usually it is not necessary if the area is cleaned properly but sometimes it helps in the initial stages if the area gets more inflamed (red).

  2. Thank you so much, doctor! I’ll definitely get wound care solution and monitor for signs of infection.

  3. Well, I was straight before I saw this post. Now, I don’t know. If you’ll excuse me, I have some thinking to do.

  4. You went from Shakespeare to Romeo! Well done!

  5. What about our organization drew you to us and how can you fit in to our mission statement.

  6. You know, I think we're living in a touch-starved society. I am an older woman who lives alone and it is a real problem.

  7. I had dogs in my old state, but they’re my family’s. Unfortunately, I can’t have a dog because I live in the dorms.

  8. That’s great insight! I can’t fall into the spiral of regret over my past! Mate, that’s literally my M.O. 😂

  9. I did this but I don't really have any symptoms. Does that mean I'll be fine?

  10. No. Symptoms may not appear for 24-48 hours, but damage is still being done to your liver in that time. Please go to the emergency department immediately!

  11. The antidote is most effective if administered within 8 hours. It may or may not kill you, but there’s a strong possibility that it will cause damage if you don’t get treatment. I made a post about the effects and symptoms of an untreated Paracetamol overdose. I encourage you to read it, spoiler alert, it’s horribly painful and unpleasant.

  12. What most people didn't know (including myself then) is that Paracetamol contains trace amounts of poison. Ingesting large amounts of Paracetamol is no different to ingesting poison which is why as OP has described the symptom of OD'ing on the drug closely resembles the symptoms of being poisoned.

  13. Tylenol has a toxic metabolite called NAPQI, which is quickly turned nontoxic by glutathione. However, when you take too much Tylenol, your glutathione stores are depleted, causing NAPQI to build up and cause damage.

  14. Tylenol OD survivor here 👋🏻 for a number of reasons, but with my actual experience leading, let me assure you: it gets better, and it is absolutely not worth it.

  15. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. It’s what thing to research Tylenol ODs, but hearing personal stories always hits harder. I can’t even begin to imagine enduring all you did. And I commend you for using your experience to help others here. I’m glad you’re still with us today!

  16. Are you gonna reward yourself with another one of those amazing steaks?

  17. Yk what I just may, along with a cold one 🤙🏼

  18. How much are you on? I'm on 20xr and I forgot to take it the morning of my test and it didn't even show up

  19. Wait you’re saying you’ve taken this much apap six different times…the last time being a few days ago?

  20. Yeah, that’s correct. In case you’re wondering, I did go to the ER for treatment. I plan on that being my last time, I sincerely hope.

  21. Hang on for the official results. I’ve heard mixed things about this pop-up, some say it’s good, others say it’s bad. I know this is nerve wracking, but hang in there, buddy!
