1/ After chatting with @eugenemcfadden I've been thinking about embodiment. These things that are supposedly in our heads: #depression, #anxiety, #autism, #ADHD are for me PHYSICAL. Here are some thoughts on depression, and how it is different from sadness 🧵
@eugenemcfadden 2/ When you are sad, you are perhaps a little more of yourself. It makes you a little Cartesian; your mind, it seems, is noticing that you are feeling things, and knows it will have to wait this absurdity out, until you can go back to the numb comforts of normality.
@eugenemcfadden 3/ You observe a rawness within and without: eyelids and nostrils, follicles and skincells — these are the external, bodily realities that represent the internal shrinking and puckering.

Went to NYC to get castrated. Then was going to head off to Mexico and then maybe Thailand to get more surgery done; maybe even the "final step".

2 weeks before my castration I was on the beach with 2 post-op transgender "women". We were laughing & having a good ole time... til
til they got very serious, looked at me and said, in a sincerity & compassion I'd never heard from them b4, "Don't Do It!, All of my life I thought IF I could just become a woman then I would be happy and I'd find peace & purpose."
he went on to say, "Now I am legally & medically a woman but I am more miserable now than I've ever been. I think of taking my life on a daily basis. Please don't do it to yourself! I just want to die and not exist!" Then the other one looked at me and said...

#Calvin on false teachers who claim #anxiety is a sin, Inst. 3.8.9 #Translating

"Today among Christians there are also new Stoics who consider it a fault not only to moan or cry but also to be sad or worried.

But these paradoxes, of course, generally come from people who, having more practice with speculation than action, are not capable of doing anything but supplying us with such paradoxes.

But we have nothing to do with that iron philosophy, which our master and Lord condemned not only in words but by his own example. After all, he lamented and cried over his own hardships and those of others and he instructed his disciples no differently.

@Metabolic_Mind It's ok to have hope that you can feel better. When you are suffering from any of these disorders, hope is a little scary. You don't want to be disappointed. Sometimes it's easier to practice acceptance of how you are feeling. (3/12) #hope #spoons #chronicillness

People with Generalized Anxiety Disorder are seen to suffer from hypometabolism in the basal ganglia and white matter. This is thought to contribute to their struggle to determine what concern deserves attention & worry constantly.
Could improvement in brain metabolism help reduce some of the symptoms seen in #GAD? In my clinical experience, I would say absolutely.
I help clients transition to a ketogenic diet to help treat brain hypometabolism. And in doing so I see an improvement in #GAD symptoms and a variety of other symptoms associated with other diagnoses.

A woman in whom "pain-reliever" became "pain-giver"

1. 35-year old woman, known case of #migraine for 12 years, presented with increased frequency & severity of headaches for past 6 months (#headache occurred every single day in the past 3 months).
#MedTwitter #neurotwitter

3. She had disturbed sleep and also had features of #anxiety and #depression.
Headache, taking "pain-reliever" tablets, short duration pain relief followed by rebound headaches after 4-6 hours, occurring on daily basis had become a vicious cycle for her.
