Love is a mess. Let's be real. It was never meant to be perfect. Perfect is boring. And one thing love should NEVER be is boring. But if it's not boring it's crazy. And crazy love comes with issues and consequence. Just think about all the love sayings. One of the most quoted is "Love is Blind." It means all you can see is them. And that is dangerous. Let's talk about all the other senses love afflicts.

Redditor u/ohwhorable wanted everyone to have a chat about the impacts of love and it's ups and downs by asking.... They say love is blind. What other emotions have disabilities?


Look. Sit.

Fear is dyslexic and bored has ADHD. SamOFart

Lust. 

Lust has Alzheimer's. LeggyBald

It means when you have lust for someone, you forget all the bad things about them. Like in abusive relationships, the partner can be terrible but it doesn't matter, you forget it or switch blame. Raevin_

Pump Up the Volume....

Anger is deaf, you cant listen to reason. with1n0id

I think that sometimes it's good to be angry (not to be confused with rage or what one does in anger). It shows that you do care about something, that it's important to you. 22Savage671

Hangry....

Hunger has Tourette syndrome. Oyska_G

People with Tourettes tend to have uncontrollable tics. You can see for yourself there should be videos on YouTube. SAVE_THE_RAINFORESTS

Repeat Pain...

In some cases lust has carpal tunnel. Terrible_Golfer

I feel personally attacked. Wombat_cannon

Kind of painful, occasionally numb and sometimes tingly?

I think you should probably see a doctor my good internet stranger. ClockworkAnd

Silence....

Depression is mute

Edit: for everyone saying Depression isn't an emotion (some of them surprisingly rudely)...

de-pres-sion
noun

  1. feelings of severe despondency and dejection. varthalon

I think that the silence of depression can eventually become deafening in some instances. When you withdraw, people who love you miss you. They start to notice the lack of your presence. And suicide, there is such an empty void filled with pain because you're not there anymore. That kind of silence is incredibly loud when it comes to emotional pain and loss. I just hope we come to understand that someone cannot just snap out of it, and hopefully we as a society will get a better grasp on how to reach out to someone going through depression without telling them to "Snap out of it."

Proud. 

Pride is tasteless. centrismhurts998

Yeah it's really frustrating hearing things like that. I hear people say how people should have humility, but if a person already feels they have no value then all you do is hurt them. Speaking for my recovery having pride in my emotions, in who I am, in what I can do, that I can do better, that I can be wrong, that I can be better has made all of the difference that I can actually be with people and to give back and support them.

Lack of control.....

Giphy

Anxiety is bedridden, you can't move. sunflowersnlove

Anxiety is really like the controller of so many other things. Some people puke, some pass out, some crap themselves, some yell, some hide, some run, some can't move, some ache, some go numb, etc.

Anxieties disability is lack of control. its_all_4_lulz

 Godspeed. 

Arousal has extremely poor impulse control. Candy_Cake_Jen

Prolonged pain. Been there. Godspeed. MisterBovineJoni

Brain: "She cheated on you and gaslit you in order to manipulate you into staying."

Penis: "she knows how to work it tho"

It's clear which one won. ArchetypicalDegen

The Killer...

Overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer. greendogelol

Slowly, gently, this is how a life is taken. Draeg82

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
