“Schizoidia Everywhere” by Dr. W

#Solitary individuals may experience a variety of different emotional experiences & internal conflicts that would not be readily observable from behavior because generally the #solitary look they same because they are #solitary.

However, clinical experience & empirical research have shown that distinctions among #solitary types in connection to emotional functioning, social needs, and attachment-related dynamics vary considerably and have diagnostic implications.

Some #solitary individuals desperately want to belong but fear rejection and embarrassment so strongly that they isolate. This is what is commonly known as #shyness from a normative view & social #anxiety through a pathology lens in children.

So I posted yesterday the video of the shooting done by #Vogue with #Zelensky. It had thousands of views & many outraged reactions. I've read #ZelenskyVogue so you don't have to. A thread. Basically in social psychology, it's called #brand affiliation. We are talking about an/1

entertainer for #Ukraine television to #wartime #president is a deliberate, crafted process. Experts are continuously looking for ways to adjust his image to new circumstances, by affiliation, linking it to other symbols, because at the end of the day people get tired of every/3

🔶 On utilise ce terme pour désigner du harcèlement psychologique ayant recours au mensonge, au déni, à l'omission sélective ou à la déformation de faits dans le but de tirer profit de l'anxiété et de la confusion ainsi générées

🔶 Le gaslighting désigne une forme d'abus mental dans lequel un individu manipule la réalité pour faire douter sa victime de ses perceptions et de sa santé mentale. C'est une façon de priver la victime de gaslighting de libre-arbitre.

I #showered today, went to my eye appointment, and intended to go work at a coffee shop.

My #Depression: *zaps me of all energy no matter how hopeful we were for the day.*

My #Anxiety: I mean what if you go the coffee shop and someone steals your computer or hit your car?
Me takes phone off of #airplanemode to call my insurance company--waits on hold for 45+ minutes... no biggie.

Personal call comes through, I pick up and I REMEMBER
why my phone been on #airplanemode for days.

Humans can be exhausting+ I'm already exhausted. Not the best combo.
Me returns home.

Me:* feels defeated; guilty; exhausted; invalidated; but still NOT giving up.*

Me: *puts phone back on #airplanemode for safety*

Me: *continues be gentle with myself;drinks water; and remind myself that I am important, valuable, worthy, lovable,and enough.*

So I had one lady who messaged me a couple of days back and seemed quite worried.
She told me that it was her 12 year old son who she was worried about.
She shared some screenshots from her mobile phone.
Writing this thread after seeking due consent from the lady. Do read.
She showed me a particular game that her son keeps playing. This was the game. I asked her what it was about.
She told me it was a fantasy love game where in the player had to "dress up and glam up" a girl who according the game developers was ugly looking/ dark / had bodily hair.
For reference take a look at this girl on the right.

I'm becoming more and more convinced that we need to think very carefully about our relationship with #anxiety

More and more voices describe our current situation as an 'epidemic' of anxiety problems and related disorders.
Yet we continue to use anxiety as a motivator for so many areas of life. Increasingly so it seems.

As we do, I'm convinced we are pushing at the edges of our limitations, at risk of stretching ourselves beyond what our humanity itself can actually handle
I remember joking about needing 'the fear' before I really knuckled down to exam revision. It was in part tongue in cheek, in part a reflection of the fact that a little anxiety can sometimes motivate *in the short-term*

We're built with a fight or flight response for a reason

A (LONG) thread for patients with #mecfs #longcovid expecting surgery and the #surgeons #anesthesiologists #crnas and #pacunurses caring for them. I'll share my recent perioperative experience. This is neither comprehensive nor medical advice, but I hope it helps. (0)
1. Recovery was a bitch. I've had general anesthetics before, even in the same organ system. This was not the same body undergoing #anesthesia.
2. Set Expectations: Physicians
Expect long lists of meds, allergies, requests, and questions. Listen to and engage with your patient. They may educate you. Anticipate a potentially prolonged and complicated recovery. This is not a fast-track. Respectfully, don't be a Dick.

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

Pause? Yes, Pause

Life has always been a journey. As beautiful as the journey of life is, we become overwhelmed sometimes. And there is always the temptation to push ourselves beyond the edge at this point. However, the truth is,

to pause at some point. A tired traveler needs strength to continue the journey. We may think we need more time at this point of exhaustion, but what we need might just be a brief pause.

Starting my MSc program late last year, I had several plans to execute. At a point, my...

“He didn’t respond to my message, he must be ignoring me!”

Isn't it irrational to make definitive assumptions, when it is impossible to know with certainty, what other person thinks?

Thoughts like these are "Cognitive Distortions"

What are Cognitive distortions ❓
-Automatic and self-reinforcing irrational thought patterns
-Self-statements that are either mildly misinterpreted or entirely inaccurate
If left unchecked, they can become stuck in negative feedback loops of unhealthy thinking.

Types of #CognitiveDistortions include:

There are *so* many benefits to exercising. And while we all know that, it’s often hard to motivate ourselves to do it (especially during the winter months.)

Exercise can help reduce #anxiety, improve your self-esteem, and help you get a better night’s sleep.
While it may be a bit harder to get outside and get your heart rate moving in the winter, here’s a few things you can do:

1) Yoga
2) Walking/running (inside or outside)
3) Swimming
4) Strength Training
Some of these you can do right in your living room!

And if you haven’t exercised in awhile, that’s no reason to feel bad. Every step you take is progress in helping your #mentalhealth.

Stay healthy everyone 💚

Friends, I have #COVID as does my entire family. I've put together this list of helpful strategies that have helped me through the other side, though the rest of my family is still symptomatic. A 🧵!

The most important thing you can do is panic about whether or not your unvaccinated child under 5 will have lasting chronic issues from this virus. I've done a lot of this lately! It's *really* important, because apparently no one has done this, you fucking assholes @cdc

Secondly, make sure you're #vaxxed and #boosted. Wait, you have a child under five? Then just circle back to point 1 and wear down your own immune system by panic-googling symptoms for your kid's specific health problems BEFORE getting a disease known to cause brain damage!

While there’s no way to determine if you’ll develop Seasonal Affective Disorder #SAD (or what exactly causes it), there are a few possible causes to be aware of.

Let’s break em down! 👇
1) Distance from the equator

Well, unfortunately you’re a bit out of luck on this one (unless you plan on picking up and moving to Ecuador, in which case more power to you).

Further away = less sunlight = higher chance of developing #SeasonalDepression
2) History of #MentalHealth struggles

History of #depression, #anxiety, #bipolar and other disorders can put you at a higher risk.

Directness & saying what you mean is important. The receiver also needs to be ready to tolerate this. Society & business places tend to prefer the passive aggressive so being direct does invoke blowback.
There is particular social cost to being direct & going against social norms

if your optics/demographics invoke mental models …say of expected discretion, “civility”, or “be kind” or “softness”


if mental model invoked is “angry Black woman/man”…
“Be kind” is red flag: it identifies the passive aggressive shushing/shaming people who are threatened by @candor & perceive directness as aggression. It’s a fixed mindset trait or a negative consequence when empathy/emotions overindexed in ways to block growth & learning.

A study published in the International Journal of Social Sciences found that software developers are more likely to experience weakness, burnout, anxiety, and stress than their colleagues who perform mechanical tasks.
Over 80K developers participated in Stack Overflow’s 2021 Developer Survey in which 10% of respondents reported having a mental health issue, anxiety, and depression being the most common. Mental health issues are significantly prevalent among software engineers.

🧵 1/#covidvaccine anxiety-SRO view from a #vaccineclinic. In every clinic I’ve been part of (and that’s many) there are always some who are particularly anxious about being #vaccinated. Today we saw several who reported not wanting to carry the anxiety over #christmas.
2/years as a dr have taught me most humans often find uncertainty or new things #anxiety provoking to some degree. #COVID19 and #covidvaccine are all of these things in some measure & patients will go a long way to find a clinic that aren’t reassuring it’s ok to feel #anxious
3/what can help with #CovidVaccine anxiety? Firstly recognise it and accept it. It’s ok if not normal to be worried. #anxiety drives a need to look for reassurance +information- the latter can be conflicting and misinformed and worsen #anxiety. Speak to medical professionals.
