Ich habe es schon mal gesagt und sage es wieder:
Messer sind zur Selbstverteidigung bestens geeignet!
Vor allem, wenn:

- du denkst, dass du wirklich hart bist

- du meinst, dass du eine schwere #Depression schon nicht bekommst, nur weil du jemanden getötet hast [ 1/8]
- du Bock auf tagelange Vernehmungen und #Gerichtsverfahren hast, nur weil du jemanden getötet hast

- dir richtig einer abgeht bei dem Gedanken, auf Leute zu treffen, die dich hassen, nur weil du jemanden getötet hast

- du ein #Selbstverteidigungsmittel suchst, das... [2/8]
...nicht distanzwirksam ist, kein Geräusch macht und somit auch nicht Umstehende/Anwohner warnt

- du richtig Bock auf Aids und Hep A - C hast (Nagelbetten offen? Aufgekratzter Mückenstich? 🗡☣Willkommen im Club!)

- du die Worte "Überschreitung der Notwehr" gerne mal... [3/8]

Live tweeting re-watch of #MainPremKiDiwaniHoon henceforth to be referred to as #MPKDH
Thread

First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to

I have heard the worst kinds of advice when it comes to depression. If you say “I’m depressed” you’ll be surprised how many of your friends do hot yoga, eat steamed kale chips, have google degrees, drink seven kinds of herbal tea, & watch TED Talks in their sleep. #mentalhealth
But I get it. I’m trying to understand that when someone gives bad advice, it’s not because they’re bad. Sometimes it’s because they don’t know what else to say. They feel helpless. They have to say something. Anything. #mentalhealth
Many of us have been trained to fix-it. We’re told that silence is bad, so we fill it. It’s hard to say, “I really don’t know.” And honestly, I’d rather hear your bad advice than be alone. I’d rather you try badly than leave quickly. #mentalhealth

I wish #antidepressants actually got rid of #depression.

Don't get me wrong, they're very important. Life-saving even. But living with depression, even at a low-level, day after day can be be: So. Damn. Exhausting. 😏

#MentalHealth #Mentalillness
I've been living with mild/moderate #depression for ≈4 years.

For me this is 'remission'. And I'm genuinely grateful it's not worse.

Sometimes it's OK just to survive each day. But it's not OK when that becomes your life. When you feel 'a bit shit' ALL the time.

#MentalHealth
The elephant in the room, of course, is the environment.

Can I blame my poor #mentalhealth on my behaviours? My drugs? Or the conditions in which I work?

Is it 'natural' for academics to develop #anxiety & #depression given the constant stress & distain?

It was a bit late when i realized that my joints, spine and knee pain is because of stress and depression. Before that i couldn't understand what exactly depression is, how it feels? So, last year my eyes started swelling and I went
.. blind for some hours. I was admitted to hospital when doctors said i had an infection but i had some stress too that triggered it. Well, story goes on. I was suffering from back pain and knee pain for 10 years and no doctor could be able to diagnose what's causing the pain..
.. eventually back in october last year my life experiences started changing upside down, my relations with friends and family bungled. It was really hard for me to cope from it because friends weren't there to counsel and there's a little room in families for talking ..

1 Wisst Ihr, was richtig mies ist an einer frühen Diagnose Asperger #Autismus? Man hat uns gesagt "Das wächst sich aus, im Erwachsenenalter ist kaum ein Asperger-Kind mehr auffällig." Oder "Sei froh, dass Du überdurchschnittlich intelligent bist, das hilft Deinen Weg zu finden."
2 Wer diagnostiziert wurde oder eine Verdachtsdiagnose hatte, "durfte" Sozialverhalten trainieren. In die Augen schauen, Emotionen aus Gesichtern lesen, Gespräche führen, ohne monoton zu klingen. Smalltalk zu halten! Maskieren war gewünschtes Verhalten.
3 Viele von uns galten dann nach durchgestandener Pubertät als "geheilt", haben sich eher ruhigere Jobs gesucht, einen eher kleinen Freundeskreis aufgebaut, in dem sie als verlässlich, aber eher introvertiert gelten. Familien gegründet. Wir sind jetzt 35 bis 45 Jahre alt.

#ProTip for #coping with situational #depression aka life:

Decrease time spent listing to self-help/motivational podcasts & increase time spent listening to stand up comedy. #WednesdayWisdom
The Larry Sanders Show & Veep can be better than any bullshit guru or SSRI for one’s wellbeing.
*combine SSRI with comedy for maximum gains 😉 in consultation w a psychiatrist.

"What's wrong with this BS?"

If you are #depressed, you are living in the past
If you are #anxious, you are living in the future
If you are at peace, you are living in the present

WRONG! But good for teaching.

(quick trigger warning)

This is intended to be educational re: depression & anxiety. It mentions concepts that can be difficult to read about suicide, trauma, and depression. If you're not in a place to read it now, come back later :)

My cat distracts: instagram.com/chasiuthecat/
A psych mini-tweetorial and a bit more #philosophy, but this is important in #medicine and #psychiatry.

Ultimately, I hope it'll be obvious that this quote is simplifying, stigmatizing, and harmful. It's classic pseudo-profound bullshit.

Been thinking about #ADHD ADHD a lot lately, cuz I have it, and thinking about (a lot of) things (at once) is just what I do. (thread)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is really a bad name for it. We have no deficits of attention. We have a surplus of it. 1/
...so much that we have to use up the extra, "floating attention" (yes, that's what it's called) with some other kind of stimulation so we can focus on what we have to focus on. That's why some kids concentrate on homework better in front of the telly or listening to music. 2/
Rather than a deficit, what we have is the inability to regulate our attention. We can't force ourselves to focus on something that we're not already interested in, no matter how important it is. As kids we CAN'T just "pay attention in class," any more than we can fly. We are 3/

#Depression is one of the most common of all #mentalhealth problems. It is also one of the most treatable conditions.

Let's talk about adolescent depression
#DevComs

Image source: psychologytoday.com
@akinlabiJ @dreadnstyn @healthcommng @HealthontheLen1 @_iamperpetua @DebisiBusybee @iam_doctormayor @depressionarmy The adolescent stage is a critical stage.

Adolescents often deal with a lot of issues they are not equipped to deal with that might cause depression.

It is also worthy of note that adolescent pubertal changes also put a lot of strain on them which may also lead to depression
@akinlabiJ @dreadnstyn @healthcommng @HealthontheLen1 @_iamperpetua @DebisiBusybee @iam_doctormayor @depressionarmy If this stage is not managed with care the effects often last till adulthood, causing serious mental issues.

Situations that might cause depression in adolescents includes;
•Broken homes,
•peer pressure and bullying
•Academic expectations or learning disabilities

Im Ben.

Ive lived with #depression and #anxiety for years. I have become a doctor and psychiatrist. I try to help people. Sometimes I do.

My #mentalillness does not define who I am as a person. Or whether I am worth knowing.

Irreguläre Überlegungen zu #Depression als Ausdruck einer narzisstischen Epoche
Die Krankheiten unserer Wohlstandszeit heißen #Burn-out, #Depression, #Narzissmus oder einfach F43.2. Das ist der Diganoseschlüssel einer #Anpassungsstörung. Das Wort verrät etwas...
Und 40 % von uns schlucken Pillen gegen #Depression und überschwemmen die Praxen der Therapeuten und Coaches. Das Internet ist voll davon – alle wollen damit was verkaufen oder verdienen.
Die Wissenschaft liefert wie stets die ideologisch passenden Erklärungen zur #Depression. Mit uns stimmt was nicht, nicht etwa mit der Epoche, sondern mit den Individuen. Denn wir leben ja in der besten aller Welten. Sagt die Ideologie.

People who didn't know much about Marianne #Williamson Googled her after the debate the other night.

Here's a summary of her views on #vaccines, #AIDS, and...Darth Vader.

Oh, yes, it's related.

That's really in her book "A Return to Love" (1992).

Here's a picture of the actual words in the book. #FridayThoughts

Here she is denying that she said #depression is a #scam, then backpedaling and saying she was wrong to say it.

Here's a sample of what we spoke about at #adisorder4everyone in Cumbria:

1. @medsconsult and @recover2renew read 'Cracked' by James Davies (now @CEP_UK ) when published 2013
2. @medsconsult volunteered to help to compile the #unrecognisedfacts document for 2014 launch of @CEP_UK
cepuk.org/wp-content/upl…
@medsconsult @CEP_UK 3. We have collaborated voluntarily with the @TheBMA 's Board of Science to provide real patient experiences of prescribed drug dependence and withdrawal, leading to the BMA ‘call for action’ for support for affected individuals in October 2016

Ich habe kein Recht

Jede #Depression ist anders, hat andere Ursachen, Auslöser & Verläufe.

Lange war ich davon überzeugt, dass ich kein Rechts habe, dass es mir so schlecht geht. Das es keinen (ausreichenden) Grund gibt (außer meine vermeintliche Überempfindlichkeit).

Von außen betrachtet ist mein Leben bislang erfolgreich verlaufen.

Ich bin mit Geschwistern in einem Haus mit großem Garten aufgewachsen, musste als Kind weder körperliche Gewalt noch Armut erleben. Kein Todesfall einer nahestehenden Person, keine schweren Krankheiten,

keine Scheidung der Eltern...

In der tiefenpsychologischen Therapie fing ich an zu begreifen. Ich lernte die Begriffe „emotionale Vernachlässigung“ & „emotionaler Missbrauch“ kennen. Lernte wütend zu sein

Thread:

#MECFS patients face disbelief that they are sick

Many #MECFS patients are told that they are simply tired, stressed, anxious, depressed, lazy or malingering

How can #pwME respond to such disbelief and lack of understanding??????

See thread below:
2. Below are 7 evidence-based scientifically supported findings that you can use to inform those who dont understand that #MECFS is a multi-organ, systemic and severely debilitating illness

From a lovely review by @HarvardAskDrK in @JAMA_current
ja.ma/2xF3WNT
3. #pwME have deficiencies in 3 organs important for the body's hormonal balances called the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis

Importantly, the deficiencies observed in #MECFS patients are quite different to that seen in #depression

Alison had extreme difficulty in finding appropriate treatment for her son. No traditional treatment worked, “there was nowhere else for Mika to go” “we spent the next 2 yrs following Mika around the country” ... lots of instability, and vulnerability to abuse from staff ...

1/ I would like to share my story of my #mentalillness (Bipolar Disorder II) and how I deal with it, to show that mental illness is everywhere, and that someone can have a mental illness and be successful. I hope this story can empower someone and help reduce the stigma.
2/ I am a successful PhD student in Chemistry. I am happy, I have travelled the world, I have lived abroad for a year, I am a varsity Squash athlete, I have a BSc in Biochemistry and a MSc in Chemistry. But my biggest success: doing all this while managing a mental illness.
3/ A few weeks ago, I woke up and it took me over an hour to get out of bed. After a day of achieving little at work, I went straight home. I did not feel like my usual after-work walk, I did not want to play squash, I did not want to read a book. I had no energy.

A little thread, which I may come back to, for all those #technophobes who blame rise in #suicide on #socialmedia.

First: legit, what rise?
Second: The actual experts do not agree with you, and your fear-mongering is likely causing more harm than good.
cf. Thomas, K, and Gunnell, D. (2010). Suicide in England and Wales 1861–2007: a time-trends analysis. International Journal of Epidemiology, Volume 39, Issue 6, December 2010, Pages 1464–1475.
So, first the data, from #UK (above) and elsewhere (below).

Clearly if this epidemic was *caused* by a *single* factor it would permeate all societies with social media.

For #TuesdayThoughts and #TuesdayMotivation

from @IvanThrone

The Dark Triad Man

ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM #DEPRESSION?

DO YOU FIND YOURSELF SPIRALING IN #PAIN?

Grab your balls.

Pay attention.

We're going to discuss a process.

And you will APPLY IT...

"SICK THOUGHT"

Correcting this is a critical component of vital health as a human being.

Mental health, emotional health, physical health.

There is no way around this, people.

If you are engaged in Sick Thought,

You are going to be Sick.

That's how it works.

Listen!

/2
LEARN:

Thought can arise with ill and disordered pattern, resulting in sickness of alignment of the three realms of thought, word and deed.

Sick thought is malevolent, both in consideration and in internal impact.

Pay close attention here.

Nice @FrontPediatrics paper providing guidance for docs and #pwME in the diagnosis and management of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome #MECFS

#MedEd #MedTwitter #chronicillness #chronicpain #SickNotTired
frontiersin.org/article/10.338…
2. #MECFS is commonly misdiagnosed as a #somatic disorder

#pwME "..have been humiliated or dismissed by other providers, so [doctors] will need to be.. nonjudgmental.. & acknowledge that #MECFS is not a #psychological condition but a real illness"

frontiersin.org/article/10.338…
3. #MECFS symptoms can be diverse, complex, fluctuate and overlap with many other conditions making the diagnosis difficult

This @FrontPediatrics paper lists 33 (!) co-morbidities commonly associated with #MECFS
