showed up at the pool on three hours of sleep, adderall and half a box of girl scout cookies and another instructor was there so we rock paper scissor’d for who had to teach and I won so I got to go home! also there were a bunch of USA hockey officials there, that was weird. for some reason the hotel I teach at has kids’ hockey teams staying there like once a month, so I’m guessing they were there for a tournament. Thankfully I was too asleep to say anything dumb.
Judy Foreman, author of A Nation in Pain: Healing our Biggest Health Problem, looks at the prevalence of chronic pain and how we treat it differently in men and women. (via oupacademic)
I’m horrified but not astonished.
So with a man it’s like, “Aw, poor sweet baby, of course you’re in pain—here’s something for that.” And for a woman it’s, “No, but here’s something so you stop complaining about it.”
Not like women know ANYTHING about pain. Jesus. smh
YEAH. SO ASTONISHING.
