When you accidentally walk into something head first and it shakes you to your core.
Do I play…basketball? WHAT’S BASKETBALL? When you accidentally walk into something head first and it shakes you to your core. Tree branches, lamps, door frames, shelves, you naaame it. @BrandonDotson_ / Via vine.co When you can't hear people in crowded places because you're too high up. So someone has to get on the other's level — obviously it's us. reddit.com When walking through an attic or a basement means tucking your head into your chest and hunching your shoulders forward AF. @livingmilebymile / Via instagram.com When waist height for other people is knee height for you.

Just how difficult is it to get ripped? Alice Mongkongllite / Macey J Foronda Hey what's up, I'm Christopher and clearly not Zac Efron. Christopher Hudspeth I'd eat 90% processed foods, with a salad thrown in there once in a while, as if some occasional lettuce could negate the mountains of unhealthiness that'd come before it. To give you an idea of how deep-fried and takeout-oriented my diet was, take a peek at some of my GrubHub history: View Entire List › [...]

Caz Chisholm is one of the hundreds of women at the centre of what has been dubbed the "greatest medical scandal" in Australia's history and is the subject of an ongoing Senate inquiry, as well as multiple court battles between patients and pharmaceutical companies. Xmee / Getty Images In January 2014 Chisholm was told by her gynaecologist that urogynaecological surgical mesh was the best treatment option for her urinary incontinence (poor bladder control)."I just wanted to be able to run around with my son and kick a ball," the Perth mother told BuzzFeed News.Urogynaecological meshes, sometimes known as transvaginal meshes, are used to treat two main conditions affecting women.One is urinary incontinence, and the other pelvic organ prolapse – when the connective tissue securing the vagina and uterus to the pelvis gives way after childbirth. In the latter case the mesh is implanted under the urethra (the tube that empties urine from the bladder). Caz Chisholm/Supplied The meshes come in different shapes and sizes such as 'sling', 'hammock', 'tape' and 'ribbon' and can be non-absorbable which means the mesh will remain in the body indefinitely. This means it is considered a permanent implant."[The doctor] didn't really explain many of the side effects or possible complications and I just had such immense trust in her," Chisholm said.The plastic net-like implant was put through her vagina to support the urethra.She woke up from the surgery with an "excruciating pain" in her legs which spread throughout her pelvis and pubic area."Even six weeks afterwards I was scared of going for a swim because I didn't think I could recover if I fell over."I felt like I had crawling ants in my pelvic region and I was told it was a nerve thing."Her vulva turned white with the skin disease lichen sclerosus which can be itchy, painful and cause permanent scarring."I was bleeding from scratching it... I was sent to a dermatologist who just gave me a steroid cream."Steroid cream is the approved treatment method for that condition.Nine months after the operation Chisholm was still sleeping with a pillow between her legs and regularly changing the position in which she slept to ease the pain."I [had also] lost all feeling in my clitoris." She decided the symptoms could be related to her implant. Getty "My anxiety was through the roof at this point, so I went online and found women with issues similar to mine, and I realised the only way I could recover from this was to get it fully removed."She set up Australians Pelvic Mesh Support Group on Facebook in November 2014 and it has since connected more than 800 women around Australia, many of whom meet up regularly in person to support each other.“A lot of us have been told that we are imagining it because women are always treated like hypochondriacs," Chisholm said.She could not find a surgeon in Australia who would remove the entire implant but she, [...]

Dealing with unsolicited comments about your disorder:
