Dear #NEISvoid/twitter, I am VINDICATED (&, uh, still hyper on steroids, FWIW). Awesome Sleep/RespDoc is of the educated &firm opinion (upon reviewing my hospital discharge summary, lung function test results...which the hospital still hadn’t passed on yet as of this morning? 🙄)
...that I have NOT suddenly & completely coincidentally managed to develop asthma for the first time in my life at the tender age of 39 (although he thinks it does sound like a bronchospasm cough, which is literally how I was describing it when it first started happening.
Nor do I seem to have any kind of lung problem, nor a recent past upper/lower resp tract infection). Although apparently he hadn’t received the results of either of the sputum culture tests from the hosp. I’m assuming they were boringly negative or I’d have heard by now, though.)

Listening to Christine Gordon of @ReadingsBooks launch @Jacinta_Parsons’s book “Unseen” - a book not just about the events of enduring & #chronicillness but also about its #complexity. JP hopes that she has captured something of the nuance & diversity of the #LivedExperience...
@Jacinta_Parsons says the path to dx is an underappreciated & often lengthy aspect of the experience of chronic illness - it’s not necessarily an easy path to getting a diagnosis & treatment.
When the change in your health is incremental it can take years from the onset of symptoms to eventual diagnosis. I am fascinated w the transformative power of the diagnostic moment #crohns #socdx

@FandomjunkieZee @bennessb Clinical depression, seronegative arthritis/#spondylarthropathy, food intolerances (although I needed help working out the specifics), #EDS, #POTS, #endometriosis, #ActuallyAutistic, #PyoG. Thankfully in the latter case I only had a STRONG HUNCH for days before dx was confirmed.
@FandomjunkieZee @bennessb @threadreaderapp unroll, danke schön! 😄

It was the Chinese president who stopped flights from Wuhan to Australia, not @ScottMorrisonMP. The PM has hesitated in ordering full biological screening of flights from origins of risk. Australia needs to stay ahead of the curve #auspol #coronavirus sbs.com.au/news/australia…
43 flights will arrive in Australia from #China today. @ScottMorrisonMP says travellers will get instructions on what to do if they develop #coronavirus symptoms. But Border Security staff have been told “no mass temperature screening measures will be implemented at this time”
. @ScottMorrisonMP must urgently clarify precisely what biosecurity screening measures are and are not being implemented at our airports. Direct flights from China should now be subject to the most rigorous checks. This is a critical Border Security issue. #auspol #aushealth

#wuhanvirus More than 40 direct #China flights will arrive in Australia today. Only flights from Wuhan are being screened by biosecurity, but those flights have stopped. Why aren’t ALL direct flights being screened? #auspol #aushealth #bordersecurity
#wuhanvirus now reported to have killed 18 people. 630 confirmed infections. Of 22 Chinese provinces & 11 other regions, only 7 have not reported confirmed infections. 5 Chinese cities are locked down but hundreds of millions of people will still travel in Lunar New Year period.
The large number of direct flights from #China to Australia carry thousands of family, tourist and business travellers. Australia will also shortly see a large influx of Chinese students at beginning of the academic year.
