Sunscreen, swimsuits, football head injuries (concussions/CTE), dogs and babies… the doctors on Reddit have strong takes on all of these things and so much more. I decided to look at a thread about practices medical professionals have started based upon things they’ve learned from their patients. Some of the advice is good, such as having an up-to-date will and the benefits of quitting smoking. Other things, such as making sure you pee before you get inside ANY car… are a little too much for me. At the end I also share 3 ways I’ve changed my life based on my interactions with patients, including thoughts on skin cancer and coffee and alcohol consumption. Let me know down below if you think any of these will change the way you go about your daily life!
Check out the rest of the thread here:

  • My important life rule is never end a conversation angry. You do not want your last words or last chat with a loved one to be something you regret. I always end my chats with family and other loved ones with I love you. My mother died very suddenly when I was 7 and it made me realize you could be healthy and still die tomorrow. So never leave after an argument or say thing like I hate you because you never know. Also live your life like it could be your last day. Do things you love and not worry about what you can't control.

  • Could you do a video on quitting smoking and cessation programs? I work in LTC and an alarming amount of us smoke, but most of us feel like it’s harder to quit and find other ways to cope with the stress than it is to deal with the complications of smoking. I know that’s wrong, but that’s how we feel.

  • As a dog owner, thank you for what you said about dogs and children. My own dog is a pitbull, and people go to the extreme of thinking they're devil dogs that want to murder (not true, most of them are very sweet and friendly, OR they overreact against that by acting like there can never be any danger and there's no need for precautions. At the end of the day, most of them are good dogs, loving dogs...but still dogs. And one should always exercise common sense caution where children are involved, there's just no reason not to.

  • Like I tell everybody, I can drink a full cup of coffee and immediately go to bed. Coffee and caffeine in general have little to no effect on me. But I don't drink coffee for the caffeine; I drink it simply because I like it and it tastes good. That said, I also drink water and have been trying to do better about getting some exercise in. So far, I'm doing a pretty good job of sticking to it!

Plus side is im basically never gonna be in the sun too much.

  • Standing and sitting both don't work... My back hurts after sitting too long and standing up after the sitting session makes my vision fully black for a minute, my hearing shallow, my legs weak, and sometimes passing out because I have Pots. But because I have Pots, when I tried a standing desk, where I also moved around the room more, within half an hour my vision wouldn't focus, I felt nausea + lightheaded and I couldn't think at all and that's only after about half an hour, even after I sat down for a break, I couldn't focus my vision and felt shaky and tired for 10 minutes. Is there really any solution?

  • Very true, an infant, or toddler should never be left alone with a dog. Not just for the kid's safety either, little ones can easily injure an animal. Of course, injuring the dog is likely to get a baby bitten. I don't care how gentle your dog is, if it's self defense, you can't expect an animal not to attack.

  • when sunburn was mentioned, does it means the reddish, hurts a lot sunburn? or dies it includes your skin getting darker with no irritation or pain whatsoever? i am often confused with this, since people often said they are sunburnt, but having only their skin get darker and their face doesnt hurt....but then there are ppl who counter-attacked them and said "thats not a sunburn" so i would really like if anyone care to explain what is the real sunburnt condition that may lead to a high probability of skin cancer....sorry it sounds stupid.

  • On the subject of Dr's level of experience with my illness is so dang hard when you have a less common disease like Behcets Disease. I have even had a nurse try and say that it didn't exist *till she looked it up and the Dr corrected her, I gave her the benefit of doubt since she was new* or argue with me on the pronunciation of that disease *like what?*. Most Dr's when they read Behcets they look at me and say something along the lines of "I haven't seen this since med school" or "I've only seen this once my entire career" or "I have only had one other patient with this condition". Its a constant learning experience for both myself and the Doctor. Its also an ever changing disease and incredibly hard to treat since as he has put it this disease can be different in each geographic region, or whether your male or female can change how it affects you, enviromental factors. Alot can be a factor in how it acts. Then there is the fact they still dont understand what triggers it, where it came from entirely or all of its symptoms. They know a lot, but there is an equal amount of what they dont know that is the scary part. I have a deadly form of this disease and its incredibly painful. We are just managing it right now the best we can since there is no cure. I trust in my Doctor because he has been honest with me right upfront. He was also the only one I could find that wasn't either across the state or that would take my insurance that even knew what the disease is and bonus he specializes in it *granted it was at the bottom of the list of things he specialized in*. Its been nice to have a doctor that can talk to me. After not being diagnosed for the first 19 yrs of my life and suffering then after being diagnosed and not being able to find a doctor who could help me or even wanted to try because its not an easy disease to treat or they just didnt know what to do, it was beginning to get frustrating. on top of all that I was recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis. I'm sure there are alot of people in these comments section in the same boat as me. It sucks and it is even more sh*tty to have it on top of behcets. I honestly hate living like this somedays and there for awhile I really was close to giving up because the pain is just so intense somedays. However I'm finding light in my life again and doing my best to fight through the rough days. I hope everyone else out there who is suffering can start to feel or find some sort of light in there lives. Find something that makes you want to keep going.

I'm pretty sure what they mean is something like, I'm goin to have wine with my dinner, to help relax or unwind or as a reward for having a good day, it can be very simple purposes, just avoiding it becoming an unconscious habit, which can then grow unnoticed.

  • I started smoking when I was 12 and made the switch to vaping when I was 17 (and I’ve splurged with cigarettes every once in a while). I’ve been vaping for over 3 years now, and when I tried to use the patch I was also vaping. It’s hard to stop, I keep making the excuse that I’ll stop vaping when I want a baby, hopefully I follow through. If you have started smoking it’s a friggin struggle. If you haven’t smoked plz don’t do it cause it’s a b!*ch and a half to stop.

I've been sunburnt on overcast days O__O (Yes now I am very careful. 4 skin cancers in my family... I'm not longer playing with that).
