For $200,000, This Lab Will Swap Your Body’s Blood for Antifreeze
“Cryopreservation is a darling of the futurist community. The general premise is simple: Medicine is continually getting better. Those who die today could be cured tomorrow. Cryonics is a way to bridge the gap between today’s medicine and tomorrow’s. “We see it as an extension of emergency medicine,” More says. “We’re just taking over when today’s medicine gives up on a patient. Think of it this way: Fifty years ago if you were walking along the street and someone keeled over in front of you and stopped breathing you would have checked them out and said they were dead and disposed of them. Today we don’t do that, instead we do CPR and all kinds of things. People we thought were dead 50 years ago we now know were not. Cryonics is the same thing, we just have to stop them from getting worse and let a more advanced technology in the future fix that problem.”
I have serious issues with my own mortality. The thought of me not being here causes me extreme anxiety. Sends me almost into a full blown panic attack. The thought of not being here, not knowing where I am going. It just freaks me out. To think I will be here with my family and then gone. And maybe never to be ever again!! What will happen to my soul? Will I just cease to exist? I should find a religion! Ha. Gotta quit talking I’m getting hot already!
How long before you took your NCLEX did you study? I take mine in about 4 months and I have studied only a little bit and I'm feeling guilty and panicky that I haven't studied seriously yet!? Also, is it normal to feel like despite shoving so much info into your head throughout the year that you have "learned a thing" ( not literally, but I think you get what I mean)
I started about 2 1/2 months before. I did Kaplan and did all the questions! 50-100 questions per day. I also was able to do Hurst! I really loved Hurst the way it kind of dumbed everything down. You are already on overload. It is just soothing! Except the cardio section! That lady is flat out annoying!! Once I took the test I felt like all the questions were easy but I still didn’t feel like I knew the answers. I knew I had failed when the computer cut off at 75! But I passed! Go with your gut and good luck!
(An update) I took NCLEX yesterday & it was horrible. I only had 10 SATA questions which in my head meant I was doing horribly. All meds (I have never heard of) & legal questions! NOTHING I studied.. but I passed! I am officially an LPN (and Monday I start my bridge to RN program) :)
WOO HOO!!! Congrats and good luck!! I felt the same way after I took my nclex! I just knew I failed! But I didn’t! Great job!!
I have 3 girls and it was tough!! I went from being a stay at home soccer mom to a full time student! Luckily my girls were 4 and up! So while they were at school so was I! Then I studied at night! There was a big shock in our family! The first semester back was the hardest because my husband who is active duty navy was working 14-16 hour days will literally 1 day off a month! So a lot of laundry piled up. Lots of frozen meals. But everything slowly went back to semi normal. He honestly, after the first year, helped me with the kids activities. I studied a lot on the weekends on campus.
