Things to do when someone tells you they were assaulted:

  • Express your shock that someone could do such a thing.
  • Ask what kind of support they want from you.
  • Ask before touching them. (Even if you think you’re being comforting, touching an assault victim is often unwelcome.)

Things to NOT do when someone tells you they were assaulted:

  • Do NOT tell a victim how to handle the situation unless they have actually asked for your advice.
  • Do NOT call the police unless the victim has asked you to do so.
  • Do NOT use it as an excuse to confide about your own experience with assault.

Medicinal Plants Worthy of Your Garden Space

Echinacea is not for immunity, it is itself an antimicrobial. Using it frequently has similar problems to those os using prescription antimicrobial drugs frequently. Be careful before using medicinal herbs: Many of them are just as powerful as prescription drugs, and unless you know what you’re doing, you can really hurt yourself.
