39-Year-Old Speaks Out After People Made A Meme Out Of Her Misfortune

Five years ago Jennifer Knapp Wilkinson of Missouri became famous, unwillingly and rather ingloriously: the very overweight then 34-year-old was shopping for her family using a mobility scooter to get around Walmart. As she tried to lift a pack of soft drinks into her basket, she lost her balance and tipped onto her side, together with the scooter.

#1

Knapp Wilkinson of Missouri had this to say:

“I thought I saw a flash of light and heard some young girls giggling. I thought nothing of it because I am use to hearing people make fun of me or saying snide remarks. It was nothing new,” she recalls.

But what she didn’t yet know was: the laughing kids behind her put the picture online.

In fact, it landed on a site devoted to making fun of Walmart customers, which captures all kinds of eccentric shoppers — and shopping situations — at the retail behemoth. But it often also propagates a nasty stereotype of Walmart shoppers as unsophisticated and obese. (And let’s take a moment to appreciate how cruel that is, on its own, given the pressures on middle- and lower-income Americans as well as the widespread phenomenon of food deserts — Missouri being an epicenter of that problem!)

So Jennifer’s image spread online as a mean-spirited meme and, of course, she eventually saw it. Reading the comments below the picture was brutal. She’d been injured by the fall itself but now she was truly devastated.

Four years later she decided to speak out:

“The worst thing about this photo is that people think a fat woman tipped over a cart because she was too lazy to get out of the cart to get the case of soda. I have a condition in my spine called “spondylolisthesis” where a vertebra slips forward and out of place. In my case, the longer I stand the more numb and weak my leg become. I fall because of this condition… I also was experiencing a lot of pain and weakness that day.”

“I am also very obese which does not help the situation in my back. I fight my weight daily and have recently joined a gym.”

But it’s “still a battle… The reason I am sharing this is because people think it is funny to laugh at people with disabilities. You can not see my disabilities but they are there and they are REAL. So next time you see photos making fun of people just remember you know nothing about these people or the struggles they face everyday. It is never just harmless fun to laugh at someone.”

You Have Been Drinking Water Wrong Your Entire Life And It Is Affecting Your Health

It is said that drinking water while standing is harmful for health. Everyone must have heard this statement from the elders in family. But have you ever bothered to pay heed to their advice? I am sure many of you have not even given a thought about it.

I have seen people drinking water hastily while standing in a single sip. You’ll be shocked to know that drinking water while standing has severe side effects on health. Health experts recommend drinking water in sips while sitting. But how does it make any difference?

Well! It is an old wives tale that drinking water while sitting can help you get the maximum health benefits out of it. But it is true to a great extent. So lets check out some scientific reasons cited by the health experts which support this old wives tale.

But, do you know that your drinking style also has adverse impact on your health?

When you consume water while standing, it flows down the gut and splashes on the stomach wall. The sudden water splash can harm the stomach wall, surrounding organs and whole gastrointestinal tract. Long term practice may even disrupt the functioning of digestive system.

Filtration of water from kidneys is affected on consumption in standing position.

The sympathetic system of the body is activated on consuming water in standing position. This system is also known as ‘fight and flight system’ of the body. On the other hand, the body is relaxed while sitting which activates the parasympathetic system of the body. This ‘rest and digest system’ calms the nerves and eases the digestion process in the body.

Drinking water while sitting can help in getting rid of GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease).

Consumption of water while standing splashes water on lower part of esophagus harshly. This leads to dilation and relaxation of sphincter (joint between esophagus and stomach). Due to the disturbance in sphincter, acids in stomach start flowing backward which causes burning in the esophagus. This sequence of events causes the sensation of heartburn and ulcers.

If you have the habit of drinking water while standing, then you might become victim of indigestion.
