thread: #WhyStrawAlternativesDontWork

i cannot use metal/glass/bamboo/pasta/corn straws during tics. i will injure myself due to #Tourettes.

i eat paper due to #PicaDisorder. i bite down hard regularly during tic storms. this = mulch. i cannot use paper/card straws.

i have a #bleedingdisorder called factor 1 deficiency. during bleeds i cannot drink safely w/o a straw.

the straw needs to be bendable, sterile, & most of all disposable coz i get blood *everywhere*.

gross photos of my typical blood loss here:…

straws help me (often aided) take my medication during a bleed. they help me drink unaided during a tic storm if i am sat down.

they help me not get drink everywhere but my mouth. i use them for hot drinks & smoothies & soup. straws make the world accessible to me.
