this is your periodic reminder that old-timey medicines did not fuck around
Yeah that’d probably handle a cough.
That’ll do it.
Back when medicine was a party in a bottle.
This week we started the Victorian era in summer camp. I had to explain early-modern medicine to the 7 to 11-year-olds without discussing heroin or vibrators. The struggle was real.
I love how people reference medical documents from this era as proof that corsets cause harm to people. *facepalm*
- Have you eaten in the last 4ish hours?
- Have you had something to drink today?
- Can you have something, even if just milk or water or cup’o’noodles or toast with something yummy on it, if you haven’t, please?
- If you have any injuries, can you please take care of them for me?
Whatever you have or haven’t done today just know you’re super strong and I am so proud of you
Okay you can go back to blogging now~ <3
