Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

Walrusfella, I can't even begin to imagine that kind of diagnosis. I hope that you have the support of all around you in managing your treatment. *hugs* Hi there. It's been a very long time, particularly in internet terms. I posted fairly regularly on this thread in 2012 and 2013 (roughly pages 25 t...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

I think you really wanted it to work... And that was your undoing. The right person will come along when you're happy and doing what you want to be doing, being happy being you. That person will add to your life, rather than take away from it. I'm going through some shit myself. My wife, the woman I...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

So, I haven't posted in a while. I've spent the last year and a half working armed security, which I enjoy. PA school fell apart before it even began... nobody bothered to mention they count all of one's postsecondary education, and I bombed out of college 4 times before getting a diagnosis of adult...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

I really hope that things work out for you and your wife(especially with her MS), hopefully modern medicine can do so much as help her try to maintain a good life. One of my best friend's mothers has MS and it's in the early stages and It's not an easy dose to handle for anyone. We can only hope th...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

First of all fuck those people who told you that it would be a waste of time, I'd say go for it and try to email them and talk to them about your situation. As cynical as I am about people in this world, as I've gotten older the more forgiving I realised they actually are. I had a similar problem w...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

So, it's been almost a year since I last posted. Time really flies! Let's do a general update: I'm out of the ankle boot. I was running for a month, and my left knee started having issues. That turned into me wearing a brace and walking with a cane. An MRI and a joint injection later, I think I migh...

Re: For Want of a Nail - Misha Route (Updated 4-1-16)

I'm now at the point where all I could do is reiterate my previous points - which is something I won't do for SC's sake if nothing else... Just one thing: This is true, but the general likelihood of those happening in a situation where a layperson bystander is the first responder are statistically ...

Re: For Want of a Nail - Misha Route (Updated 4-1-16)

I'm no doctor, but I would expect that you don't just immediately fall unconscious when your heart stops beating (see heart attacks). You can easily argue that Hisao is on his way out of consciousness. In that case CPR is probably still premature but given that Misha is also not a doctor I don't ex...

Re: For Want of a Nail - Misha Route (Updated 4-1-16)

While this is true, I am disappoint that you assume I didn't do my homework. You'll recall the Nurse's dire warning about a blow to the chest, yes? He was referring to commotio cordis . Hisao has Long QT syndrome , placing him at elevated risk for commotio cordis . Commotio cordis is a type of sudd...

Re: For Want of a Nail - Misha Route (Updated 4-1-16)

Defibrillation is indicated for ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia. The vast majority of patients will be unconscious, but some might not be. If a paramedic diagnoses one of those conditions after looking at an Electrocardiagraphy of a conscious patient (or they know the patient's ...

Re: For Want of a Nail - Misha Route (Updated 4-1-16)

Important note to all prospective first-aid-givers: If a patient is still conscious their condition is not bad enough to warrant CPR by far ! With that out of the way, welcome back, good to see you again and all that :-) Long hiatus. Might be a record - so far... That's true in most instances... bu...

Re: For Want of a Nail - Misha Route (Updated 12-25-14)

“Wahahahahahaha~! That was fun! Is everyone okay~?” I want to respond, to move, but no luck. My heart. “Hicchan?” I can't say for sure, but I think it was Shizune’s head. It hit me square in the chest. “Hicchan~!” I can see the terror in her eyes as she realises what's happening. In the same instan...

anyway is this route complete? i see that the last update was way back in 14 and i'm interested in seeing more of her.
Last I checked, this was somewhere in Act 3 (Scene 7 Part 1). There's an index at the head of the thread here.

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

A happy note—I posted an A in microbiology. Now I start Expository Writing, which goes for 6 weeks and is all online. I'm still in the immobilizer boot for my ankle, so still no running. I might call about it; I just want to make sure it's healing correctly. There's a slight risk of severe weather t...

Re: Hanako's Broken Heart Club

Snip Life is rough. To live means to lose. There is nothing you can do about it. No way of getting around it. It just happens, no matter what you do. Honestly in a way I wish I could feel the way about my long past high school days that you do about yours. I prefer to forget everything about them, ...
