Artistic microscope slides produced in the Victorian era (1840~1900) by arranging hundreds of tiny diatoms into intricate patterns. This was often accomplished by using a single hair to move the diatoms in a special chamber that prevented disturbance to the slide. The fabrication of these amazing objects must have required incredible patience, attention to detail, and a steady hand.

Like… I seriously don’t understand why it’s so hard for men to wrap their minds around the idea that female sexuality does not exist for their consumption. & any sexual expression that doesn’t immediately pander to their fucked up porn-ruined brains just gets completely erased and rendered…
Umm, I just read through the Cayston tag. Why do people have such a hard time sticking to the regimen that’s required for this drug? I personally do not find it difficult.
Because I’m a full-time college student at an intense liberal arts college, have a job,…
Everybody is “BUSY.” None of the other things you’ve listed will matter if you’re not healthy. What do you do with all the doses you miss over the course of 28 days?
Well I am healthy and my doctor said it’s okay so I don’t really give a damn. Plus busy to you may be different than busy to me. And I throw them away.
So your insurance pays several thousand dollars for a 28 day supply and you throw a fairly large amount of that drug in the trash? You are wasting something that others desperately need and you take it for granted and then try to justify it with weak reasoning.
If you’re able to discard what seems to be 1/3 of your doses and your doctor is okay with that, maybe you don’t need to be on Cayston. You and your doctor may want to reevaluate your need for this drug. I’m fairly certain your insurance would not want to continue paying if they new you are being irresponsible and not taking the drug they are paying for.
Lol I’m being irresponsible? My doctor knows I’m only taking it twice a day. And it’s really none of your business. There isn’t a shortage of the drug so everyone who needs it can and will get it.
And if my doctor wants me on it then I’ll stay on it. And considering you aren’t my doctor or anyone who really even knows about my health or what I should or shouldn’t be doing I think it would be best if you shut your mouth. You aren’t a medical professional, you’re just someone else with cf who thinks they know it all.
You asked a question, “why is it had for people to do it 3 times a day?” I gave my answer. Just because you disagree with it doesn’t mean you have the right to tell me or my doctor what I should and should not be doing.
And my insurance had nothing to do with it. I have extra doses in case I spill one and if you read the box and keep them un-refrigerated like I do, you’re supposed to discard them after 28 days.
I am not being irresponsible and I actually take great offense at that. My lungs are doing great, they’ve just jumped up 15%, and I can tell you it wasn’t because I sat on my ass throwing away medication.
My arguments aren’t weak; you simply think they are because I didn’t describe my entire day to you. And I won’t. You don’t live a day in my life, you don’t do the things I do, so really you don’t understand how hard it is to get three in a day.
I don’t do drugs or smoke or anything else like many other CF-ers do. I take care of myself the best I can. And quite frankly, shame on you for trying to give me shit about not doing what you think I should. I’m doing what I’m told and instructed to do and much more. Just because I don’t measure up to what you think I should be doing, well, that’s your problem.
You don’t have a medical degree, you don’t know my health or history, and you sure as hell don’t know what I need and don’t need health wise.
You made it my business when you responded and your insurance has everything to do with it. You can get as angry as you want with me but, if you’re skipping doses with a drug that costs as much as Cayston does, you’re ripping off your insurance company in a big way.
I won’t keep going on with this because I don’t have the time or the will to do so. Just know that although you’re healthy now, you won’t be in the future. You should do EVERYTHING you can now to prolong your current health for as long as possible. Also, not all CF clinics are created equal and the same goes for the doctors at those clinics. I’ve met some CF docs who were absolutely horrendous.
Take care and stay healthy.
Listen, you son of a bitch. You asked a question. We are not in a community for you to fucking bitch out people who you don’t agree with. If you ask a question and are intending on judging and giving patronizing advice to people who respond, maybe put a disclaimer on it. Here’s a suggestion “I’m such a fucking asshole, I wouldn’t recommend responding to this.”
Erin is a STRONG, WONDERFUL, AMAZING woman who doesn’t need your BULLSHIT “advice” or response. You asked a question, and she answered. She didn’t answer with a question “What do you think about my response?”
I would recommend you fuck off, you useless piece of shit.
You’re going to law school and that’s how you defend someone? Good luck with your career. Exposing emotion like that won’t get you far when it comes time to defend a client.
I’m not on tumblr to make friends. I could not care less what people think of how I respond to things or what I write in general on my own page.
This will be my last response to all of this. I don’t have the time to be goaded into any further arguments. Thanks for responding though. :-D
Dude like, do you mind
not being a dick to people. You’re being incredibly patronizing, so you’re getting a reaction. Sure, you’re not “here to make friends”, but are you here to troll other CF-ers who are like at least 10 years your junior? come on
Also for real, who the fuck cares if she’s “ripping off” her insurance company. The health of real live human beings is much more important than whether some insurance company is getting paid. Doing Cayston twice a day is better than zero times a day, everybody knows that. Maintaining her good health with this drug (even if she misses a dose here or there) is far more important than whether some greedy company gets their fair share. Her doctors definitely know that, she knows that. Be happy she’s healthy and that she has a means to get the drugs she needs. Just chill.
Or a playstation or a flat screen TV or a newer car, etc and etc. I know people that work under the table for half their pay and get paid on the books for the rest and collect welfare. I know of drug dealers that collect for tax purposes even though they pull in thousands of untaxed money each month dealing. Tell me how I am not supposed to be upset with these people like I am with greedy corporate cronies? I’m not heartless. These people are selfish and unethical.
Except not everyone who has nice things is automatically cheating the system. People are given things as gifts. People buy things and THEN qualify for assistance. People save up for nice things.
You can’t assume what someone’s situation is just by what they own.
We were eating only donated Panera bread, rice, and turnips. My father was sneaking to the various blood banks in town to sell his plasma at twice the rate they allow. My mother was dying due to not having her medicine, which cost well over $1,200 a month after insurance.
My autistic baby brother wanted to do something nice for me.
He worked for months making custom art pieces to sell. He worked up courage despite crippling social anxiety and speech problems to ask the neighbors if he could do chores for them to earn more money - raking the yard, helping clean their house, walking their dogs.
For nine months he carefully hoarded his money in a jar in his bedroom. He counted it every single night and compared it to the cost of what he wanted to get for me for Christmas.
Finally he had enough. He bought me a DS Lite and a pokemon game.
He was so happy.
Until one of our neighbors, a highly conservative jackass, saw me with it outside a couple weeks later. My brother was with me.
The neighbor stormed up and became screaming at us, a pair of teenagers, over how we could be so selfish to spend money on “electronic shit” when we were a family on food stamps. Spittle flying from his lips, cuss words every other second, rage radiating off of him so violently that our father came running out of the house - at a limp, since his spine is broken, which causes him horrific daily pain beyond what I can imagine - to protect us.
My brother was never the same again. There is no happy ending here. That episode in his life changed him permanently and for the past seven years he has almost never left his room and never gone to a friend’s house. He is terrified of the neighbors and believes he is a bad person.
Because of fucking people like you OP.
Because of fuckers who believe that they know what life is like for everyone and have a right to judge.
So fuck you OP. If you know drug dealers, report them, go on and put your ass on the line then. But for fuck’s sake don’t you dare thing you understand what goes on in the life of the people who live in never-ending, grinding poverty. Because you have *no fucking clue* what goes on in the detailed lives of others.
You want to talk selfish? Look in the fucking mirror.
