So some shit went down for me personally at the end of 2018. First, let me just say I'm old. I'm not old-old - sorry to anyone in their 80s but that's my definition of old-old these days. I am 48, so I'm Perimenopause old
so the "shit that went down" as I turned the page on 2018 is what began my #AdventuresInPerimenopause, aka the worst medical experience of my life...and I had my ankle surgically reconstructed w/no pain meds when I was 4 months pregnant
a few months before "shit went down" I had finally began to lose some of the 50lbs of extra weight that's been, well a weight, on me for a year. I was on a program, thinking about exercise - that's step 1, right? - and had safely dropped 15 lbs in 2 weeks

76 yr old Mom needs help gofundme.com/76-yr-old-mom-…
In 2011 I was bitten by a tick. I have a brain tumor/IIH & such severe intestinal damage that I CANNOT digest food w/out enteral food RX. It's $198/wk, even w/pharma discount. My (now) 77-year-old Mom is my caregiver but she can't afford it. Don't have enough to eat/save 🏡. 😭
I contracted E
Chaffeensis, Rickettsia of unknown etiology, & #LymeDisease. I just had 8th spinal tap to relieve pressure on my brain.
I'd been on antibiotics for 19 yrs.
I caught Coxsackie B4 virus-a cousin of polio. Lost most use of (L) side.
I wasn't treated for 11 mos. #Lyme

#Canadians better wake UP! This needs to be RETWEETED to every Canadian! Conservatives, Liberals, NDP & Green. Do you know someone with #Cancer Does anyone in your family have asthma, allergies, pain or obese? If you answered, yes! You have a pre-existing condition! #cdnpoli
Do you work at Tim’s, Walmart or some other job of this nature! Guess what, NO COVERAGE FOR YOU! Do you have a job that is absolutely guaranteed, guess what probably not! NO COVERAGE FOR YOU! Can you afford private insurance premiums, $500-$1000 per person, A MONTH! #cdnpoli
Are you willing to bet your child’s life on voting #CPC or for Max Bernier who said he’s ending socialized medicine? Are you willing to bet your life? How about your parents? You better realize ELECTIONS have CONSEQUENCES! #cdnpoli

THREAD! Now that everyone is looking, wanna to learn some history about RVA's racism? @theValentineRVA has a series called #ControversyHistory that explores our difficult history. TOMORROW the topic will be #healthcare disparities. This include's medical college graverobbing.
In December, on our weekly show #MUNICIPALMANIA, we spoke with Dr. Shawn Utsey about his research documented in Until the Well Runs Dry regarding the history at the Medical College of VA of using black bodies in the name of medical advancement.

Part of Utsey's research was around a man named Chris Baker who was the medical college's anatomical man. There is a well documented history of Baker stealing bodies for the medical college. In 1882 Baker & med students were caught grave robbing together & Governor pardoned them.

#Canada is at point where we hear a constant barrage of hate and fear. @CPC_HQ is yelling about a constant Trumpian border crisis that doesn’t exist. We do not have a border crisis. Yes. People have crossed, but, they aren’t wandering around #Canada
#cdnpoli 1/
#Canadians need to realize these people turn themselves into the RCMP. Our border is manned. They know who is crossing. We are obligated to hear their request. Most will be deported/sent back to the United States. As per Safe Third Country Agreement. We have no crisis 2/ #cdnpoli
The @CPC_HQ are stoking fear. When they know the laws. If the #CPC were in power, they too would be dealing with it the same way.
The @CPC_HQ stoking fear is to divide #Canadians
They don’t care about the border they have an agenda. That agenda should scare you 3/ #cdnpoli

An Israeli pharmaceutical company is claiming it will have a “complete cure for cancer” within the next year.

The company is Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies (AEBi), and based on the claims of its board chairman Dan Aridor, the treatment it’s working on is revolutionary.
“Our cancer cure will be effective from day one, will last a duration of a few weeks, and will have no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market,” Aridor told The Jerusalem Post. “Our solution will be both generic and personal.”

Little more than a week before January ends, and I’d really like to be at 1K followers. Here’s a little bit about me in a thread so you can make an informed decision about whether following our campaign for the US Senate to take the seat held by @KamalaHarris is worth your time;
1) I am for #MedicareforAll/#M4A. Here’s a pic of me in Sacramento, supporting the passage of #SB562 which would have guaranteed #healthcare coverage for all #California and provided universal healthcare. It is the moral choice, it saves us money and we support a nationwide plan.
I am for broadening the pathway to legal citizenship for all people interested in coming to #America and allowing us to prosper. I have marched with @UFWupdates @UFWF in the past and plan on doing so in the future. Rights of Mexican-Americans are my rights, porque somos familia.

". . . Democrats in charge of the House, the #MedicareForAll single payer bill is being rewritten, watered down and renumbered . . . Jayapal ’s bill is being written behind closed doors."

Our campaign has #M4A drafts for House & Senate, .@RepJayapal.
singlepayeraction.org/2019/01/22/sin…
I'm calling on all progressives in congress, .@DemSocialists comrades, and elected officials who campaigned on the promise of #M4A in 2018 & cosponsored HR676 to inquire as to why Medicare For All Bill is being rewritten behind closed doors.
The purpose for Medicare For All Caucus as I understood was to prevent #MedicareForAll #HR676 from being diluted.
We the people, 70% of the population in this country, support #MedicareForAll.
Why is is being rewritten &/or diluted?
What provisions are being removed or altered?

I just gotta say this, and it might take a while and I am probably gonna cry...

I get into a lot of discussions with people who have no idea the state of world we were actually in leading up to @realDonaldTrump, nor where it was going to end up. Thank you God!!!
The #AmericanPeople have been forced into basic slave labor. Unions took over personal #freedoms in the work place, making it impossible to do anything without the #mob without risk of getting fired. #Unions also allowed people that did nothing to keep their #jobs
without recourse. #Goverment stepped in and made it necessary to have a #supervisor, #assistantsupervisor, #manager, #directingmanager, they gave quotas on #race and #gender that had to be met. They all but destroyed #business in #America

The right idea for #healthcare reform, at least the correct train of thought.
Naturally it's nothing discussed on TV.
The right lines to think along with #prisonreform.
Again, NOT seen on TV.

@Aiims1742 @katekelly Nice digs, clever marketing spin, but EPIC is highly disliked by end users. #EHR has significantly disrupted relationships with #patients, led to clinician & pt dissatisfaction, & is seen as one cause of #burnout. @choo_ek @darakass @tgoetz @tmprowell @cardiobrief @DrMJoyner

OK. So there's a piece (no paywall) on @JAMA_current today by Freddy Abnousi (head of #healthcare @facebook), @hmkyale, +@DrJRums "Social Determinants of Health in the Digital Age: Determining the Source Code for Nurture." jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/… #cyberwoke /1
Before you think this is any kind of good news, remember that @Facebook has successfully incinerated democracy in several places, in the process turning all of us into meat puppet data cash machines (we don't get the cash) and now ... #cyberwoke /2
In addition to knowing where we are, who we're with, what we like, and what we think, they want our health data? How big of a FUCK NO, NO WAY, OMFG HAVE YOU LOST YOUR EVERLOVIN' MIND will we have to raise to kill this? #cyberwoke /3

Dear @SenKennedy & @BillMagnarelli: Congratulations on becoming Chairs of your houses in the #NYSLegislature. Some thoughts to keep in mind when making policy. (cc @BikeNYBC @transalt @StreetsblogNYC @NYC_SafeStreets)

1) Transportation choices are shaped by public policy.
2) We need to give people safe, convenient transportation choices. Example, loads of people want to cycle places, but they're #2scared2bike.
3) Transportation is the #1 cause of injury death for kids and #2 for adults. But it doesn't have to be this way. Mortality rate in Netherlands is 1/4 of ours. That's because of good engineering (#VisionZero, transit, etc).

A federal judge ruled the #AffordableCareAct--also known as #ACA & #Obamacare--unconstitutional because #GOPTaxBill removed the mandate.
I've written about ACA since it was devised in 2009 & signed in 2010. Here is a thread📌on what the law does & how it impacts you:
1/
Many Americans are confused about what the #ACA is--and this includes Trump and his #HHS Sect #AlexAzar. A vast array of complex #healthcare statutes are covered under the #AffordableCareAct (also known as #ACA & #Obamacare). So here's a primer to inform you on all points.
2/
The #AffordableCareAct is the comprehensive health care reform law enacted in March 2010 (sometimes known as #ACA or #Obamacare). The #ACA is NOT insurance. It is a LAW that stipulates, in part, what insurance companies provide in their #healthcare plans.

Apple has a section of their website answering questions doctors may have regarding their latest #ECG technology. Where are the answers to the REAL questions #patients want to know about? For example, if I get an alert:

#AppleWatch #digitaltech #wearables #PatientAdvocacy
2) when do I confidently ignore, act upon, or wait to make actionable decisions about alerts I’ve received? #AppleWatch #digitaltech #digitalhealth #wearables #Innovation #PatientAdvocacy #healthcare #medtwitter

While you're focused on a holiday surprise from #Mueller, the president of the United States and his lame duck Speaker have officially been working toward eviscerating the #ACA before #NancyPelosi steps in to save everyone's #healthcare.

Please call your reps & tell them NO.
1/
I'm seriously ill--17M of us have #cancer; 131M have other chronic illnesses. This concerns me & you & people you love.
Like everything else, it's underhanded and under-the-radar.

New insurance guidelines would undermine rules of the #AffordableCareAct
washingtonpost.com/national/healt…
2/
"The Trump administration is urging states to tear down pillars of #AffordableCareAct, demolishing a basic rule that federal insurance subsidies can be used only by people buying health plans in marketplaces created under the law."

They want to take the #healthcare you need.
