Re-reading the recommendations from the @McCrindle_ "Future of Church in Australia" report today ... and they are SO close to being helpful!

I think every #AustralianChurch leader needs read the report ... and then take the recommendations one step further.
The first @McCrindle_ recommendation suggests that the #AustralianChurch "... is much more likely to grow if church leaders and churchgoers are engaging with their local communities"

Yes! And this engagement starts in the digital space.
I first started as an online and social media pastor when I moved from Melbourne to New Jersey in 2008 ...

and if there's one thing I've learned it's that churches need to stop using social media to promote events, and start using it to promote conversations.

TL;DR: I'm attempting a 24hour stream today starting at 1:00pm PST for the #WorldOfWarcraft #Shadowlands launch, and I would love it if anyone wants to hang out with me as I get back into streaming.
I've avoided being completely open about my own #Mentalhealth because I don't like the idea of trying to use it or wield it for pity or attention.

That being said, I've learned to appreciate the value of sharing, and destigmatizing mental health discussion.

So why now?
For many of us, gaming has been an invaluable escape during difficult times, whether it be during a pandemic, dealing with personal mental health, or just other general adversity.

I've been dealing with severe #depression for 14 years. I'm 26, so since I was 12.

Remember that comparison is thief of joy.

It’s really easy to look at Instagram & think that someone else has more money than you & by extension a better, cooler Life.

I told Jolie everything. I confided in her with everything.. literally.. and she turns her back on me and throws everything in my face.. she has the nerve to ask:

"Why do you think everyone has given up on you?"

Excuse me?

No need to explain this to someone ..
Who triggers me with the police, abuses me and calls me an ass and a bitch..

Who undermines my abilities..

Who invalidates my every being..
The reason why my #depression is getting worse is because of all this shit I must have to deal with ..for no reason too! Jolie states that I'm playing the victim card. How so!? Someone please explain this irrational logic to me because there's clearly none here..

I am contemplating trust - with particular focus on whether or not I am willing to completely open up to my therapist.

Talking darkness and shadows seemed relatively easy work in comparison to sharing who I am, what I believe, and how I interpret my experience of the world.
I lived in darkness for years. It's victimhood feels like a soft weighted blanket in comparison to the vulnerability of discovering, owning, and being myself.

I struggle to be forthcoming out of fear of judgment and abandonment. So sometimes, it feels easy to cuddle...
into assumption, rather than removing the blanketed shield of silence and speaking my truth.

Today, I am preparing to open up to my therapist about how therapy is going. She asked at the end of our last session and I reacted quite confused, "Good?"

PR firms prepare 60-80% of global news while 6 media corps control lion's share of global news. [Giants: the Global Power Elite by P Phillips].

Contemplating the sound question "what are they trying to sell me?" is always a legitimate/wise exercise.

If the "ideological protectors of concentrated global capital" wanted you to remain calm - the media, in lockstep, would mirror & amplify this desire. Instead we witness a psychological terror campaign waged against populace - w/ a growing acceptance/demand of fascist measures.
Many of the observations from the 2016 article, "Why We’re Living in the Age of Fear" can be explored in relation to what we bear witness to, at present moment. Our #fear is very easy to #manipulate. "We're #wired to respond to it above everything else"…

Thread from April 2, 2020.

"Science shows that early exposure to circumstances that produce persistent #fear and chronic #anxiety can have lifelong consequences by disrupting the developing architecture of the brain."

[National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, 2010]
"While some of these experiences are one-time events and others may reoccur or persist over time, all of them have the potential to affect how children learn, solve problems, and relate to others."
This is a topic worthy of discussion. Consider WEF's rapidly accelerating consolidation of global power. In Jan 2019 WEF exploited the climate crisis by deliberately inciting #fear - in tandem with partners & media. Today it exploits the COVID-19 pandemic.

1. I didn't realize the number of adults on #anxiety medication. It's almost fashionable to some of them, too.

I realize anxiety is a real thing and must be dealt with, but I do not believe medical professionals are always the best method. Especially if they deal with a
2. natural human occurrence with #pharmaceuticals.

Some anxiety is normal and natural. The constant state, no. Believers, our cure for anxiety is to keep our minds fixed on Yeshua - Isaiah 26:3. It's Yahweh's intention that we always go to Him for medical care first. Exodus
3. 15:26 declares I AM Your Physician (literal translation). It makes sense to go to The Creator of your body for proper diagnosis and for a #healing strategy.

King Asa - 2 Chronicles 16:12 - was diseased in his feet and went to the physicians instead of seeking The LORD'S

Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay
#MentalHealth is one of those things that I'm extremely passionate about.
Some of it comes from my own struggles and experiences with #mentalillness and some of it comes from my extrapolated curiosity and interest in human behaviour.

It's a poem I wrote, back in March, 2019, based on my & some of my patients' and friends' experiences with #depression and #Anxiety

Stay with me.
It's going to be a long #Thread


A tenebrous spiral that embraced my mind,
Unscribbled pages and the dried ink of my pens,
Caressing, in disguise, has embezzled my sleep,
Dwelled in the darkness, I lay there unkindered.

“The latest Fibromyalgia - ME - Chronic Pain!… Thanks to @item9labs @Travis_Statham @SoIsFibroReal #fibromyalgia #anxiety. Is insulin resistance the cause of Fibromyalgia”
MY RESPONSE: Landmark study or red herring? Study of 23 patients with Fibromyalgia (FM) & small fiber neuropathy(SFN; found in FM & diabetics) showed elevated HgbA1c levels & pain reduction with use of Metformin.
The authors point out the obvious: people with Fibromyalgia are often sedentary due to pain. Sedentary people ➡️ obese. Obesity ➡️ Diabetes, which ➡️ small fiber neuropathy.

It's 'easier' to be angry than to be afraid.
I won't live my life in #fear.

Some weeks though, it is all about the fear and #anxiety.

Will he come after me now?
Because he cleans up well, the judge refused to continue the order of #protection.

Well, he hasn't done anything the past year.

So obviously you are freaking out over nothing.
My life is not nothing.

For @tadorna, #Covid19 made him feel like a #patient - again. We should not ever let #diabetes define us. It made him feel vulnerable because of this whole lot of uncertainties. Lack of #insulin and supplies was a worry.

For Bastian, #PeerSupport was key during this #pandemic. #telehealth for him is uploading his data and having a Zoom call with his endo. We #PwD want digital AND personal interaction with our #HCP.

#Thread September is PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) Awareness Month!
The patriarchal gender bias in healthcare care practice and medicinal research has a negative impact on our well-being!
The impact is huge and diverse! People living with PCOS find it challenging to navigate through the bias that distorts research, diagnosis, and treatment. According to research, PCOS is fast becoming a modern epidemic, especially in Asia.
So what is it? PCOS is a common endocrine disorder that affects people with ovaries, with 20-25% womxn in India and around 1 in 10 womxn worldwide affected by it.

⭐ Parent Blaming & PDA ⭐


Unless you have an #autistic child with #PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance) - it's very hard to fully understand the difficulties & complexities of day to day life - both for the parents/caregivers & the child
Please don't rush to judge - parent blaming is such a toxic yet common & sometimes automatic occurrence
It takes a little more effort, but pls take the time to listen, understand & remove your assumptions - when you come across a seemingly 'bad' parent.
There will always be a reason why a parent may appear to be 'too soft' towards the child;
Why they're not 'disciplining' their 'naughty' child.
Not every child responds well to 'traditional' parenting & due to the #PDA child's extremely high #anxiety, other approaches are needed

1/30 One of the major points of confusion about the #SAT and the #ACT specifically is what exactly is on the test. It’s always worth discussing the content of assessments, especially assessments that are so high-stakes.
2/30 When I started teaching shortly after college, I got into it as a part time job. I was a subject tutor, designing curricula and teaching math. I had always been comfortable with standardized tests, so it seemed (at the time) like that, too, would be straightforward work.
3/30 I’d never “prepped” for the tests myself when I was in HS, so I didn’t perceive/approach them as arenas that required strategy. It struck me that they were simply testing what I’d learned in school and my understanding of language and mathematical reasoning. #edutwitter

In this national longitudinal study of 4570 patients with #heartattack, attendance at #CardiacRehab was associated with a temporal improvement in health related quality of life (#HRQoL) at up to 12 months following hospital discharge. @Heart_BMJ….
‘Health-related quality of life (#HRQoL) is an important outcome measure following #heartattack’, states @benhurdus first author.
Healthcare professionals (& researchers) have historically focused on objective measures of poor health, such as mortality & life expectancy, but often patients consider improvements to HRQoL equally important to length of life.

It was lunch time in #Brazil on a Saturday in 1990 when I decided it was time to be born! I grew up in a large city in #SãoPaulo called #Guarulhos, which in Tupi (native language) means “eaters” or “big-bellied people”. Here’s the proof I am “Guarulhense”:

Software engineering #anxiety, let's talk about it. Specifically, let me try to deconstruct my personal anxiety

1️⃣ classic impostor syndrome: it doesn't matter how good I actually am with some technology/tool/technique. Even if I can get the job done, it still feels far from adequate and I feel like I have to rush to get better to defend my job title & credibility...
2️⃣ future tech gamble: tech is always changing and I need to be ready for the next big thing if I want to stay relevant in the market. But what is the next big thing? I don't know, of course, so I try to check out as many things as I can and often end up feeling overwhelmed! 🤯

Privacy of #mentalhealth status
I was working for some people from. the #DisabilityRights sector in India and had disclosed about my long-term #depression and #fibromyalgia to them (I have done it publicly too but that is besides the point here). 1/n
The lady incharge there started coercing me a few days later to accept that I have Bipolar Disorder and that she will help me get a diagnose and prescription, so that their venture appears "inclusive" for the records. When I refused harassment began. 2/n
My work that was applauded till then suddenly was labelled substandard and anything I said was called tantrum or disorder. Details about my health were shared with other colleagues without my #consent and was used as a slur against me in work spaces. 3/n
