Here is Sophia’s 3rd Birthday😊. You can see why she got the nickname Sweet Sophia. October 20th will be her 11th Birthday and our first without her. 💔

Many have asked what you can do to honor her life so I came up with some ideas. Thread...
•Wear the shirt of her heartbeat if you have one(sorry I don't have them for sale) & post about her. Feel free to post & tag me and use #SweetSophia

•Do a random act of kindness in her memory. Feel free to post about it, tag me and use #SweetSophia & #RandomActOfKindness
•Donate to @Sophias_Voice @ . I started this organization in her honor and continue it in her memory. I've been quietly helping others since a month after her death. It's helped keep me going when I felt like giving up.

Currently sat in A&E here in Guernsey and thought I’d take a picture of the charges. Quite sobering and genuinely I’m missing the nhs. Cherish your #nhs #cherish #healthcare
This isn’t including the cost of an ambulance either
An ambulance call out cost can be anything upto £360.

On a serious note:
Tuesday is my father's 2nd yahrzeit
Sunday 4/21 was the 2y anniversary of his death.

In reflecting back, I have some thoughts for #medtwitter, #Jews and the general public...

#death #dying #grief #PalliativeCare #medicine
1. Condolence notes just need to say, "I am thinking of you" or "I was sorry to hear your news" or "I am sorry for your loss."

Don't overthink it, and don't offer false platitudes. Send your note or make your call, and the person who is #mourning knows you care.
2. Show up.
For #shiva, for #kaddish. The first week, there's a lot of people around in a #Jewish house of mourning. Then everyone goes home, and we are left alone.
Offer to go to lunch. Bring dinner. Take a walk.
Join us in shul. Kaddish that first time in services was hard.

I've been thinking a lot about this(thoughts in video)lately.
Our story makes its way around the world over & over again on a consistent basis. This means more exposure, LOVE, connection, & support but also more hate, criticism, judgment, assumptions.
Please think before you make judgments, assumptions, & criticism about what you would/wouldn't do if you were in someone else's situation. Truth is, you have no clue what you’d do unless in that situation & you certainly don't have all the info about someone's story from a post.
Please be kind, compassionate and accepting.
Don't be the kind of person who adds any pain, stress or sadness to a person who is likely already dealing with a lot. #BeKind

It's #BellLetsTalk and for so many who struggle with #mentalhealth concerns, this day raises awareness and builds a culture of #compassion. Let's never again hear someone say, “just snap out of it” or “it’s all in your head.” @Bell_LetsTalk
Each of us may have different levels of understanding when it comes to #mentalhealth. Mental health is neutral. It’s not bad or good. It’s not necessarily positive or negative. It just is. #BellLetsTalk
A tooth ache will put you in the dentist’s chair. The flu is a reason to see the doctor. There’s no shame. Seeking help for #mentalhealth support must also be a safe experience. There's simply no other choice when your mental health is cast in shadow. #BellLetsTalk #EndTheStigma

I’m going to take a break!

I’ll post some upcoming work/interviews I’m doing but likely won’t be reading/responding to comments for a bit.

Sophia’s surgery is next Friday & not knowing if she’ll have reconstruction, a long hospital stay or lose her kidney has been hard on me.
I’m trying to do a better job of listening to my mind, body & heart when it’s telling me to step away & take a break. I can feel my peace escaping me & the anger & stress rising.
The many ignorant comments, assumptions, judgements, and the lack of acceptance for another human being(my child!) because of disabilities & deformities is discouraging and overwhelming to me right now. I can’t deal with all of this on top of the anxiety of her upcoming surgery.

Hey @Walmart, I have a story for you. Tonight I visited store 908 in Orlando. I was on my phone reading my shopping list when an employee approached me. He was a young man between 18 and 25 I’d guess. In a very high-pitched, falsetto, Mickey Mouse-like voice, he said,
“Can I help you find anything?” Now, my first thought was “Oh my, what an unfortunate thing it is, to go through life as an adult male with that voice.” But, I shrugged it off and thanked him saying I was good. Since I was near the toy aisle, he then asked if I was shopping for
toys for anyone. I said I was just going through my shopping list making sure I had everything. And then, to quote Will Smith as The Fresh Prince, “ life got flipped, turned upside down.” Bryan then looked at me and said “Ok, thank you for shopping at Walmart!”

Goodnight everyone.

I want to thank all of you who have supported me via this platform for so long. It means so much.

Whatever holidays you celebrate please celebrate in safety and spread what love and kindness and material relief you are able to those around you.

2018 managed to be marginally better than the two that preceded it thanks to the hard work of so many of you in #TheResistance. Thank you for all you did and do and know that we are working to save more than our nation. We are working to preserve our humanity.

I do not know what the future will bring. I had begun to think that the worst had past but with JIm Mattis retiring I worry that now things could get much, much worse.

It is our work to make sure that does not happen.

Remaining plugged in and staying educated are key.

Thank you @AprilDRyan for addressing Trump/GOP attack on America Women for what it was/is: Anti-America. I do need to add, it's also a great example of the uselessness, the actual danger to Democracy of reactionary "reporting." 📎 Note: #BeBetterMedia (1)
#MonumentalMediaFail -- references women exercising their American right to petition their government -- a majority government, by the way, that in majority numbers does not respond to them (U.S. citizens) face to face in meetings &/or in town halls W/out noting Trump is ... (2)
a self-confessed sexual assaulter of women under investigation for conspiring W/a foreign adversary, i.e. Putin, to install himself in the Oval Office &, per, a preponderance, of evidence (our eyes & ears) an obstruct of justice installing his protection on the Supreme Court. (3)
