My @dogs4EU, like all of us are getting old. They need medicines for debilitating conditions of old age. #arthritis #Pain #epilepsy drugs. Yesterday, I found that my vet couldn’t find my Bonnie’s medicine. Eventually, found a new supplier which cost me £15 more. #AnimalWelfare
My @dogs4EU are my family. @SODEMAction @No10Vigil @wooferendum knows them. They were by my side. Now they are frail, I won’t let them suffer. But what if medicines run out? Are pet owners and farmers aware that #NoDealMeansNoMeds due to customs delays. #Brexit raised cost.
How many pets will suffer, be abandoned or even put to sleep as owners can’t/won’t buy their life saving medicines? My vet is very upset. Double whammy of #COVID__19 and No Deal will cause millions of #animals to die! Avoidable deaths of innocents! @DogsTrust is aware. Are you???

Patients with autoimmune diseases, such as #lupus and #RheumatoidArthritis, are having trouble filling their prescriptions since Trump touted their medicine as an experimental treatment for #Covid19. /thread news-journalonline.com/news/20200405/…
“The hasty and inappropriate interpretation of the literature by public leaders has potential to do serious harm" write 2 rheumatology experts in the Annals of Internal Medicine. annals.org/aim/fullarticl…
FL pharmacists report "nearly all of the new prescriptions for #hydroxychloroquine are being issued for the prescribing practitioners themselves or family members of the prescribing practitioners." Some drs are prescribing it to healthy people as a #Covid19 preventative.

Donald J. Trump's misinformation campaign contd in today's presser, jeopardizing lives in the process. I wish I had counted how many times he recklessly played Dr. today, prescribing Rx cocktails for people against COVID-19, asking "What do you have to lose?" Really? Their lives!
Further, many of those living with #Lupus are already struggling to access the meds they need to remain healthy & alive due to reckless guidance he previously offered. Can someone please mute his mic or just limit the Q&A to Fauci? This is criminal, all of it!
Those with rheumatoid #arthritis too. The last time Trump asked the American people, Black folx in particular, "What do you have to lose?" We know how that went. We are living the dire & draconian answer by the hour.

About 10 years ago, I was walking home from a slow-pitch baseball game and party with my team. I was a bit drunk, so I walked instead of driving. On the way home I was mugged from behind and woke up in the Rockyview Hospital in #YYC, with a #TBI #concussion. (1 of 13)
I've had multiple concussions from athletics. Football, hockey, rugby & skiing, plus ran over by a car, not once but twice. (think Super Dave Osborne) plus what I have learned since, repeated mildTBIs from the sports. Likely result, I have #CTE. I get worse each year, not better.
Here is what is happening now. I retired from my business some years ago and stopped working completely, 3.5 years ago. I have other progressive diseases besides #CTE, like #COPD #Arthritis #Cancer and more. It is a heavy load and crippling my abilities.

OK #hospmed19, I had told myself I wasn't going to make another #tweetorial until next week to give myself a break, but I can't help but be motivated by all the amazing #tweeps at this meeting. Long story short, here's a #medthread on #PSORIASIS!

More and more, we are recognizing psoriasis to be a systemic disease. Aside from the psoriatic #arthritis we all know and love, there is more convincing evidence that psoriasis is linked with #cardiovascular disease and risk. As such, #multidisciplinary care is important!

2/
There are many different variants of psoriasis. The most classic is plaque psoriasis, described commonly as "salmon colored plaques with micaceous scale."

Q: Ever notice how psoriasis doesn't really get impetiginized/superinfected but eczema does? Why do you think that is?

5 Life-Enhancing Benefits of Strength Training for Adults Over 55 🏋🏽‍♀️

Strength training and regular aerobic activity help prevent many chronic and degenerative diseases related to #aging.

Here are 5 #health benefits that strength training can provide to older adults...

1/7 Image
1. Stronger Muscles

Stronger muscles protect the joints of the body. Muscle weakness can cause the hips, spine, and shoulder to be less stable and more prone to injury.

A stronger body can withstand the #stress of daily activities.

#strengthtraining
2. Chronic Pain Relief

Many #chronicpain issues are a result of muscle weakness and muscle imbalances.

Strength exercises can correct these imbalances to restore the function and integrity of the joints.

I had another life-threatening heart/lung episode today.
I'm not sure how much of it had to do with my cutting my heart meds back to once a day while appealing the increased price by my health insurance from $120 for 60 pills to $1k for 60 pills.
We had to call 9/11.
Scary.
1/
I couldn't afford to go to the hospital--when you call 9/11 the city charges you $1,200 for the trip to nearest hospital.
They only accept cash.
The EMTs checked me out, told me to take the heart meds the way they were prescribed, established I wasn't in VFib, just SVT AFib.
2/
So all day, instead of doing work that needs to be done, I have been trying to get my heart rate under 140, which given my lung meds increase my heart rate, has been more work: breathing exercises my PT taught me, single nostril breathing @HillaryClinton taught me (try it).
