Imagine being a competitive athlete that can do almost anything and in a matter of seconds never being able to hug love ones or do the simple everyday tasks many take for granted. That’s how life is when a person is diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) it’s a fatal disease that causes a person to lose complete control of their body and constantly need assistance. Having ALS also means having to watch the body deteriorate when the mind is perfectly aware of its own demise. Being diagnosed with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative disease caused by multiple severe concussions to the head. CTE is a disease that leads to many other abnormalities and only can be diagnosed after death.
As a result of their limited mobility, the patient developed a stage I pressure ulcer on their coccyx. Preventative measures were implemented such as placing foam pad in the area and turning them frequently. However, the patient is at risk for an impaired skin integrity and their ulcer possibly becoming worse. Another problem from being bedridden is that because they were receiving a substantial amount of fluids from numerous IVs, the patient complained of having a disrupted sleep caused by the urgency to void at night. This could be due to the fact that the patient barely engaged in any physical activity during the day, which meant they had no further movements of peristalsis to promote voiding.
Doesn’t everybody need a break from their work to be more effective? Teachers think that homework is very useful to students, but really homework harms students in many different ways. Some kids spend over two hours out of school working on homework that they have gotten that day, and sometimes struggle with understanding why they have to complete that assignment. I think homework is harmful because then kids don’t have a chance to do things that they are interested in. Some families want to know why homework is harmful, how much homework they should get each night, and even the effects of too much homework.
However, students are dropping out of theses out of school activities because of the lack of time. In Denise Pope’s research, she also mentioned that, “...spending too much time on homework [means] students [are] not meeting their developmental needs or cultivating other critical life skills… students [are] more likely to drop activities, not see friends or family, and not pursue hobbies they enjoy [because of homework].” This quote demonstrates how students are rather going to drop out of activities than drop their homework. The irony of this situation is, that in the long run, all of the extracurricular activities a student participated in, will give them more than all of the unnecessary homework they did. Take for example Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs dropped out of college and took elective courses that
Some students wait until the night before a project is due to start it, making careless mistakes; in particular students tend to misuse time cramming before a test, trying to cover weeks’ worth of material in a few hours. Another poor sign of time management is lack of proper rest, which can result in loss of concentration during lectures. Exhaustion is the cause of some students falling asleep while studying. As Harris (2014) observed “a significant amount of students who are unsuccessful in college have spent too much time ‘having fun’ and too little time in their actual studies” (p.108). Many students think that they can get by without studying, choosing to party instead.
How many times have you been overly stressed about a quiz or a test you had the next day? You’ve probably had anxiety at a quiz or a test that you know that you’re going to have, sometimes to the point where you stayed up late to study and wake up early to study even more. In some cases, it can start to have a negative impact on student’s health. It also may decrease participation in classes. Some teachers say it takes time from instructing and teaching.
As is known to all, spinocerebellar ataxia is hard to cure and patients who suffer from this kind of disease will go through enormous pressure. In other words, this disease will affect the patients’ mental and physical health deadly. However the existing medical technology does not work on it well. Therefore, in other words, if nobody really cares about them, this disease will make patients suffer forever, which does not only result in a heavy burden of family but also a burden of society and medical organization. Is it really able to be cured completely?
This happens a lot to other people. McPherson stated in his book Stressed Out in school that homework, “Creates Stress and anxiety.” (McPherson 40). No one should have to have this stress and anxiety at such a young age. Another example is In the article “List of homework should be banned pros and cons,” it says ,“Student’s minds and abilities are tested all day in school, which can be very draining. When they come home, they need to be able to relax and pursue other interests.
His grade went down two letter grades. Once he came back to school, he had a hard time getting his grade back up because he missed important day of notes so when a test came, he didn 't know what to do. His grade struggled for the rest of the semester. Another reason Students should not skip is because this semester I was sick, but I wasn’t that sick and I still stayed home from school. While I was at home, I missed a half a unit and a test prep in algebra and the unit test was the next day.
In “The Yellow Wallpaper” the narrator obviously is suffering from an illness known as nervous depression. The constant blockage from society was detrimental to her health and supplied her with physiological problems as well. For her to go from completely fine to saying the color of the wallpaper “...slaps you in the face, knocks you down, and tramples upon you” can only be blamed on mental problems. The quest for both ladies to gain their freedom was given up on as both husbands in the story weren’t going to allow this. Mental ailments proved to be remotely different from the physical problems the women were
