  • Can I go to work sick with pneumonia to my job in a nursing home?

    I serve and cook food in an Alzheimer’s unit in a nursing home. I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia today and told it was highly contagious. I am being trained to become a CNA right now so I know how risky something like pneumonia is for the residents. I told my boss about my pneumonia and I’ve tried calling... show more
    I serve and cook food in an Alzheimer’s unit in a nursing home. I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia today and told it was highly contagious. I am being trained to become a CNA right now so I know how risky something like pneumonia is for the residents. I told my boss about my pneumonia and I’ve tried calling around to get someone to cover my shift, she told me if I can’t find anyone that I need to go in myself. I’d rather lose my job than have a resident I come in contact with get pneumonia and die.

  • Whats a poison that can make someone cough up blood?

    Best answer: Warfarin would do it. It is an anticoagulant, and the person who took too much would likely start bleeding internally, including in the respiratory system and/or digestive system, and cough up blood. It is sold as a rat/mouse poison, and is also used medicinally to prevent thrombosis [dangerous blood clots]. As... show more
    Best answer: Warfarin would do it. It is an anticoagulant, and the person who took too much would likely start bleeding internally, including in the respiratory system and/or digestive system, and cough up blood. It is sold as a rat/mouse poison, and is also used medicinally to prevent thrombosis [dangerous blood clots]. As a medicine it is called Coumadin.
    Vitamin K is administered in the case of warfarin poisoning; but if it's bad, they will give a transfusion of blood plasma or prothrombin complex.

  • People who vape shouldn't breathe my air?

    Best answer: There are many occasions when people should not smoke or even vape around others. There are also other circumstances, such as in the open air where everyone is free to move around and avoid smokers, where it would be okay. I was annoyed when I was about to enter a restaurant, and several guys were standing around... show more

    I was annoyed when I was about to enter a restaurant, and several guys were standing around smoking in front of another restaurant right next door. If I hadn't been with other people, I'd have been tempted to turn around and go elsewhere.

  • Is there any way to attain the feeling of smoking, without actually smoking?

    Let me just start with I am not a smoker, so a substitution for nicotine is not what I’m looking for. I enjoy the physical action of smoking/vaping; that is, putting something to my lips, inhaling, blowing out smoke. It is the physical action that soothes me. However I don’t want to be *smoking* anything. I don’t... show more
    Let me just start with I am not a smoker, so a substitution for nicotine is not what I’m looking for. I enjoy the physical action of smoking/vaping; that is, putting something to my lips, inhaling, blowing out smoke. It is the physical action that soothes me. However I don’t want to be *smoking* anything. I don’t want anything bad going into my lungs. So I guess my question is, is there anything that feels like smoking without actually smoking anything? The thing is, I don’t want to just pretend because the act of blowing out smoke is soothing to me as well. So I guess is there anything like a fake cigarette that blows out fake smoke but it’s not actual smoke? Serious answers only please. I understand this is probably a ridiculous question, but if you have nothing good to say then please just move on.

It seems like mines is mild. All my doctor said just stay away from second hand and if you need an inhaler let us know. I don't have trouble breathing so I don't need it. I'm really scared because I read people get it at an older age and live 2-3 yrs. I just started my life and have little kids. Should I go see a lung doctor?

Yes, my husband smokes weed but stop smoking in the house 4 months ago. She said ok good just let him know not to smoke around you anymore. Now that I'm home an I decided to google and became scared. She didn't make it a big deal but what I search scared me. It's saying it could ever be cure and eventually gets worst, but it seems like it always refers to people that has been smoking for long once again I'm not a smoker.
