if you're having a bad day:
you're still loved
you tried your best
you have what it takes to get past this
you have support available should you need it
it is okay to feel overwhelmed
please cry if you have to
if it affects you, it is important

Seventy-one percent of cancer deaths are caused by cancers not commonly screened. When cancers are diagnosed early before they have had a chance to spread, the overall five-year survival rate is four times higher than when diagnosed in later stages. A single blood test that can screen for more than 50 cancers seems to work fairly well in the real world, a preliminary study reveals. The Galleri test detects a cancer signal shared by more than 50 types of cancer through a simple blood draw. The test has a 0.5% false positive rate, which means it is highly accurate. If you look at the 12 cancers that account for two-thirds of all cancer deaths in the U.S., this test finds 67% of them. The NHS system in England is doing a large-scale study to save billions by finding cancers and treating them in the early stages. Experts called the findings an "important first step" in seeing how the so-called multi-cancer early detection test could fit into real-world care.

Grieving, what truly is it? Some people mention the 5 stages of grief but in reality its never really those five you truly feel. You dont always feel guilty, angry, or sad. Sometimes you dont even accept theyre gone, you will never truly forgive yourself if you were the one who survived. You wont ever forgive yourself or accept that they're dead especially if its suicide, you dont always circle the 5 stages of grief. Some people dont make it past anger, some people are so angry for surviving longer than the person they love to the fact that they kill so they feel better about themself. Some people arent monsters for doing what they do to cope, some people just need a reminder from right and wrong. Some people maybe just need a hug. Some people survive anothers suicide and realize how truly lucky they are and they dont grieve they only accept, that isnt selfish at all. Grieving and not grieving is okay. Taking your own life because you feel upset that you survived someone else's murder you are not alone. No one will truly ever be alone, no one will truly be hated either, there is more love in this world than hate yet people focus on the hate because its more impacting this world rather than love. It will be okay if you are grieving a loved one that passed, just know that there will always be someone to grieve with, you're not alone.

I think very little relationship advice applies universally, even across traditional marriages or cohabiting while monogamous. Ultimately, even people with healthy dynamics are playing by their own rules that are in regular negotiation. I will take this chance to drop more unsolicited advice based on what I have personally learned in my marriage. These are some pieces of wisdom I think may apply fairly universally across monogamous cohabiting relationships or traditional marriages.
If it costs you little to no effort to do something affectionate, go crazy. Examples include telling your partner you love them, holding them, kissing them, complimenting them, a firm pat on the ass, grabbin’ their ass, HOLDING THEIR HAND ANYWHERE, helping with a small chore that isn’t usually in your department, taking a walk… If it’s easy for you to do a nice thing with them, do it with regularity.
As long as you have a choice, choose home over work every time. If you are salary and not suffering with an immediate and urgent deadline, never work over 40 hours. The hustle culture will not get you what you think it will. Even if it does, I would question the cost if you are in a serious monogamous relationship. If one of you or both of you are climbing like that and it’s known or mutual, fine. I am saying; if it’s debatable, it will always be better to be at home with your partner than at work.
Find the humor in everything and share it as much as possible. Develop inside jokes and talk shit from time to time. Laugh at each other and yourselves, as long as it’s not mean and direct. Laugh it off if there’s a snafu during sex. Sex that ends in laughter is still great sex. Share stupid jokes and stories. Life gets heavy. Help make it light whenever you can.
Intentionally date with regularity. Go on a big date every week and a mini date during the week. Any chore can become a date. Refreshing wardrobes together can be fun if you go out to eat and add another destination with a view on the way back. A grocery run can be a date if you stop for dessert or refreshment beforehand. Go to museums, do a flat hike, visit gardens, visit parks, get lost in any downtown or old town, get in some water, lie down on some fancy grass, sit on a nice bench… Just break out of your routine with your partner and get out of the house together.
Recognize when you’ve reached saturation. Some people need more alone time than others. Take a day to yourself if you need. Take a solo trip if you need. Visit a friend or family if you need. Get therapy if you need. The more you are in touch with yourself, the better you will be as a partner.
Communicate effectively as possible. If communication can’t succeed, plan an exit. Recognize it takes time to learn to fight fair. People easily cave into the 4 horsemen. Some people are raised thinking name calling, harsh start ups, stonewalling, and contempt are normal or acceptable. Sure, sometimes it can’t be avoided. Don’t make the mistake we used to make of fighting through it. Call that shit out and call for a break. Don’t be afraid to apologize. No one deserves to be seriously called out of their name, a sudden outburst while they are calm, the silent treatment, or constant negativity. If your parter tries to hit you with that shit once, tell them you don’t deserve it. Ask if you can help a little or if alone time would be better. If it’s a pattern, ask if counseling would help. Shit, my wife and I went to a horrible couples counselor and still learned a lot about our relationship. If you can’t gain ground facing these issues, don’t be too proud or ashamed to dissolve the whole thing. There’s nothing shameful about breaking up or even divorcing. If you think about it, it’s always good news.

Dudettes and also dudes: 
please, I beg you, 🙏🏼 develop strong bones! And balance! A friend fell for no good reason and shattered her leg in a million pieces. For a second time, the second leg, just when the first one started to heal from the previous fall. She has a few pounds of hardware in that leg. She’s bedridden AGAIN, which will weaken her muscles and make her more prone to falling. It’s fucking heartbreaking, and it happens all the time among my age group. 😫
No, drinking milk is NOT preventing osteoporosis.
Start exercising in whichever way you can, and lifting, whatever you can, and it will NOT “make you look masculine.” Get to it please 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 advanced osteoporosis is horrible

You can have everything in the world and still be the loneliest man. And that is the most bitter type of loneliness, success has brought me world idolisation and millions of pounds. But it's prevented me from having the one thing we all need: A loving, ongoing relationship.

TW: Suicide. I’m talking about prevention, but if you’re triggered, please don’t read ❤️
Here is something I’ve been thinking about today. The best way to prevent suicide isn’t to share a hotline number or a list of reasons to stay alive (though those things are good.) The best way to prevent suicide is to prevent people from getting to the point where suicide is a viable option. It’s to create an environment that actually helps people be healthy. Adequate housing is suicide prevention. Education and medical care are suicide prevention. Religions and morality are suicide prevention. Libraries, concerts, beautiful music and artwork are suicide prevention. Fair legal procedure and equality are suicide prevention. Protecting the forests and oceans and animals is suicide prevention. Being a good role model for a child, being a good friend, creating a strong and healthy family are all suicide prevention. And my goodness it isn’t enough to help people who are already hopeless and mentally ill, we have got to create a world that is good and kind and hopeful enough that less people become mentally ill in the first place.

We get a better understanding of our health when we see it from a holistic perspective. Taking care of us as a whole is essential to healing.

Scientists have harnessed the power of a woman’s hyper-sensitive sense of smell to develop a test to determine whether people have Parkinson’s disease. The test has been years in the making after academics realised that Joy Milne could smell the condition. The 72-year-old from Perth, Scotland, has a rare condition that gives her a heightened sense of smell. She noticed that her late husband, Les, developed a different odour when he was 33 – 12 years before he was diagnosed with the disease, which leads to parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years. Milne, nicknamed “the woman who can smell Parkinson’s”, described a musky aroma, different from his normal scent. Years later, academics at the University of Manchester have made a breakthrough by developing a test that can identify people with Parkinson’s disease using a simple cotton bud run along the back of the neck.

Eradication isn't the only goal - step out of the black and white world. Less sickness is achievable with any mitigation at all. Every little bit helps. Maybe you got sick with a cold. Wear a mask when you go out so that someone else doesn't get what was actually flu from you. You don't directly benefit, but if more people are like you, there might be less of a wait if you or you loved ones do need a doctor. Or maybe avoid crowds indoors to avoid also getting & spreading RSV or COVID. You don't have to get infected with every airborne illness every time it comes around. Or wear a mask all the time indoors and avoid getting & spreading even when asymptomatic. You will be making the world a better place. Ask your employer for better ventilation, and turn on filters that you control. Etc. It all adds up even if you don't see the effect. Even if you get sick, maybe you don't spread it. Maybe you do spread it, but only to 1 person instead of 10. Also little known fact: often the less virus you inhale, the less sick you get when you do get sick.
