Like #NathanielWoods, my friend #KennethFoster was sentenced to be killed even tho he wasn't convicted of killing. He was already in the TX Death House when Rick Perry commuted his sentence. Kenneth will serve decades for a robbery at 18, but he is still alive. #RIPNateWoods
My friend #KennethFoster was sentenced to die even tho TX admitted he didn't kill anyone. His sentence was commuted to life. Court-appointed counsel failed to present compelling evidence of innocence for #TroyDavis (GA) & #NathanielWoods (AL). They were both killed.
TX guards moved #KennethFoster to the Death House earlier than planned. Because he wasn't convicted of killing, he protested his own killing by not walking to his unjust execution. I love Kenneth. His dignity inspires me. #DeathPenalty

Things I learned during my little break in Harrogate (full disclosure - I’m home a day early!); 1/ I struggle to walk on carpet (I know!) 2/ not all windows act as sound barriers in any way 3/ cheap mattresses: fuck that shit 4/ I’m only 2 poor sleeps away from barely functioning
The carpet thing? Because of my almost total foot/leg numbness my body awareness is badly impaired when I’m not in full contact with a firm floor. I was like a large, middle-aged Bambi, all flailing arms and wall-grabbing. I also get this (not as badly) with certain shoes #MS
The windows. Oh god, the windows. Damp tissue paper would’ve kept more traffic noise out. Who knew that Harrogate’s Ripon Road is SO BLOODY BUSY?! It was RELENTLESS. I had to play an audiobook quite loud all night to drown it out. I’ve had quieter 4ams in Central London.

The ‘National Journal’ noted that Mike Espy, #MS US Senate Candidate #Election2020-has
liberal social views mixed with his support for cutting the federal budget and protecting Mississippi's defense and agricultural industries.
In 2018, Espy said that he supports free trade.
Mike Espy 🔁#Mississippi US Senate candidate #Election2020-Nov-3.
believes that the decision by Republicans to deny an expansion of #Medicaid is why so many rural hospitals in Mississippi have closed. #MSpol #MS #DemSenate2020 FOLLOW>>@MikeEspyMS
Mike Espy 🔁#Mississippi US Senator #Election2020-Nov-3 opposes a border wall, citing cost concerns.He opposes the Trump administration's family separation policy and said “a solution can be found "with the right combination of common sense and compassion." #DemSenate2020

1. This is a very useful thread #MedTwitter because it tracks common reasoning errors that lead doctors to readily accept psychosomatic dx for #MEcfs and other contested conditions like #EhlersDanlos, #mito, #dysautonomia, #LymeDisease, etc.
2. Start with the duty that defines your profession @strauss_matt - to ensure that every patient with a need for med care (medical testing, treatment, or support) receives it when she seeks it from you. Mistaken psychosomatic dx violates that duty in every case where it occurs.
3. No doctor should have to be told to err on the side of medical caution. Your job requires (a) humility about the limits of dx science and (b) historical awareness of immense suffering caused by psychological explanations for #MS #epilepsy #PepticUlcer #Parkinsons #lupus etc.

We are going to have a frank talk about women’s rights, boycotts and big tents. The vast majority of Americans and the vast majority of Democrats support Roe v Wade and the autonomy and liberty of patents to choose the size and timing of their families. We must #StopTheBans. 1/
People are mobilizing on Tuesday May 21 to rally support for women’s rights and patients’ reproductive justice. (yes, trans and non-binary people can get pregnant too - be inclusive!) We must show support for patients and doctors criminalized under these extreme laws. Sign up! 2/
Sadly, one of our rallies must be in #Louisiana where a Democratic Governor pledged to sign a bill banning abortion rights even in the case of rape and incest. It’s awful and people should ask @LouisianaGov to give patients the same choice his wife had! 3/ cbsnews.com/news/democrati…
