New paper alert! My final PhD paper exploring factors associated with anxiety disorder comorbidity has been published at the Journal of Affective Disorders. Thanks to @GLADStudy and @NIHRBioResource participants for making this possible. Here's a 🧵 of our main takeaways 1/9
Comorbidity between anxiety disorders has received less attention than that between depression and anxiety. Our findings replicated a #NESDA paper to show that anxiety-anxiety comorbidity has similarly severe/complex symptom presentation as anxiety-MDD but distinct features 2/9
Anxiety-anxiety was associated with lower rates of self-reported clinician-provided diagnoses, which may indicate less recognition or treatment seeking/receipt than anxiety-MDD 3/9

"Retirement" from work as a risk factor for #Dementia: experience of 5 recent patients

1. I saw 5 new cases of dementia last month, which apparently started within 6 to 18 months after retirement from work. All were cognitively normal until retirement.

#MedTwitter #Alzheimer
2. Memory impairment was the most prominent symptom. Over a period of time, other symptoms such as impaired calculation, speech impairment, losing sense of direction, poor judgement and inability to do daily activities without assistance, also started. Symptoms were progressive.
3. A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease was made on the basis of detailed neuro-psychological assessment, brain scans and other appropriate investigations.
Two patients had comorbid #depression. Three patients had #sleep disorders- two had #insomnia and one had excessive sleep.

Ein bedrückender Bericht von @totalreporter: durch die Corona-Maßnahmen erlitt er - wie viele, gerade junge Menschen - eine #Depression &, zudem, so vermutet seine Ärztin, erlitt er einen #Impfschaden.
An niemanden ging die Krise mE spurlos vorbei.

„Ich dachte viel über diesen Freiheitsentzug nach. Nicht mehr reisen können. Keine Gesichter mehr sehen können. Das „Menschen sind jetzt eine Gefahr“. Ende 20 merkte ich, dass es nicht mehr geht. Ich begab mich in psychotherapeutische Behandlung.“ 2/4
„Wir leben immer noch unter einem Infektionsschutzgesetz, das theoretisch harte Einschnitte ermöglicht. Noch immer gibt es in Zügen Maskenpflicht, noch immer können wir unser Leben nicht so frei leben wie vorher.“ 3/4

Info utile du jour en #psychiatrie: la mémoire, notre meilleure alliée ou notre pire ennemie? Une fonction qui peut nous jouer bien des tours! On continue aujourd'hui l'exploration de la métacognition ⬇️
Qu'est ce que la mémoire? Elle correspond à la faculté d'intégrer, de conserver et de restituer une information. Elle est composée des mémoires épisodique, sémantique, autobiographique et à court terme (mémoire de travail)
La mémoire est utile pour:
- se souvenir (d'un film, d'un livre, des vacances...)
- acquérir des connaissances (un événement, une date...)
- se connaître (auto-biographie)
- retenir et manipuler 1 info mentalement rapidement (situation de conversation, calcul mental par ex)

Wenn der Tag mit "neuen" Schmerzen und einer #Interkostalneuralgie Diagnose beginnt, ist es ja eigentlich schon sch... genug.
Aber spätestens den Teil danach würde ich dann bitte gerne streichen.😭 #Logopädie Befund sagt #Dysphagie, inkl dringender #Logopädie Empfehlung
(Wann bitte?). Naturlich spricht auch das für #neurogen beding. Ich wäre dann bereit den Tag von vorne zu starten...
Somit hab ich dann eine #neurogene Blasen, Speiseröhren und Darmmobilitätsstörungsdiagnose , was natürlich auch eine Magenbeteiligung relativ wahrscheinlich macht,
Meinte die Ärztin, da die Scheiß #Neuropathie langfristig wohl kaum ein Organ zwischendrin auslässt... tolle Prognose.
Und bestimmt total förderlich für die #anrorexie/#Magersucht, die ich aktuell zwar gut im Griff hab, aber das letzte Jahr hat mir und auch meinem Hilfesystem

Less Than 6 Hours of #sleep a Night Linked to Serious, Chronic Illness
1. Beginning at age 50, those who slept 5 hours or less a night had a 30% higher risk of developing multiple chronic diseases over time than those who slept at least 7 hours a night.
#MedTwitter #MedEd
2. By the time the participants were aged 70 years, that risk had increased to 40%.
3. Higher risk was seen for #diabetes, #Cancer, heart disease, #stroke, COPD, chronic kidney disease, #liver disease, #depression, #dementia, #Parkinsonsdisease, and #arthritis.
Conclusion: It is important to get 7-9 hours of good quality sleep to reduce the risk of many chronic diseases.

1/Thinking of #trees #peat #carbon and #nature and #fires. When are Victorians (without hysterics @theage ) to be made fully aware of the State #auslaws over fines in State Parks for picking up a rock, walking off track and so on. @DanielAndrewsMP/2
2/As it is now there are hundreds of shooting licensed people walking off track. Hundreds of thousands of feral deer, xrabbits,x pigs (latter two a food, anti #poverty source that cannot be culled by shooters) already damaging #native wildlife.Protecting #Indigenous locations/3
3/ @DanielAndrewsMP is key but to lock up (by fines) large areas is #segregation and discrimination. To lock up but then ok if you pay — is a cynical misuse of power. It would be good to hear from #Indigenous Victoria as we already know the value of the birthing trees was/4

Before you put your adolescents on antidepressants, let's have you make sure they are getting all the basic micronutrients they need for their brains to work. You can absolutely initiate nutritional therapies and feel good about that decision. 🧵
There is an extensive evidence base to support its use. "In the study of 478 young adults, it was found that 100 mg of vitamin B6 per day over just one month significantly reduced anxiety with trends towards reducing depression."

The #Fed is watching closely the employment reports to get a better understanding where #inflation is and where it is heading.

Why they do it and what exactly are they looking for in the labor mkt to know for sure the #inflation has peaked?

Let's delve deeper.

A thread.

The #Fed is led by theoretical concepts like the Phillips Curve.

It was first introduced in 1958 and since then updated in several versions.

All of these versions involve #inflation or wages and UR.

So let's explain it in more detail.

2/17 Image
wage growth = LT wage growth - f(UR) + inflation expectations

f(UR) - function of unemployment rate

High #inflation leads to higher #inflation expectations.

With higher expected #inflation workers demand higher wages.

Hence companies are forced to raise consumer prices.

The independence of Nigeria from colonial overlords after 62years is yet to reflect in the lives of the young generation, as many of them see Nigeria as a failed British experiment which is ripe for division.

1/n A fascinating article came out this summer that argues for a plant-forward omni diet, and it contains a very inflammatory headline:

"Debunking the #vegan myth: The case for a plant-forward omnivorous whole-foods diet"

Note author Loren Cordain, a paleo proponent Image

The abstract:

"Veganism is without evolutionary precedent in Homo sapiens species. Strict adherence to a #vegan diet causes predictable deficiencies in nutrients including vitamins B12, B2, D, niacin, iron, iodine, zinc, high-quality proteins, omega-3, and calcium."

Let's review the images quickly because they show some of these dangers.

All cause mortality for #vegans and vegetarians is higher! Image

CN: Depression

Ich weiss nicht wer das gerade heute lesen muss:

Wenn Du gerade von einer #Depression ganz unten im tiefsten Tal festgehalten wirst und sie Dir sagt, das wird jetzt immer so sein-> NEIN! Sie lügt Dich an! Depressionen sind Meister der Lügen!
Sie wollen auch, dass Du Dich wertlos, nutzlos und überflüssig fühlst.
Sie reden Dir ein, Du wärst schwach, würdest viel weniger leisten als andere und überhaupt wäre die Welt besser dran ohne Dich.


Du wirst aus diesem Tal wieder heraus kommen!
Du wirst wieder lachen, weinen und fühlen können!

Du bist NICHT überflüssig- im Gegenteil! Die Welt ist ein besserer Ort, gerade weil es DICH gibt!

Auch wenn Du es gerade nicht fühlen kannst: Du bist unglaublich stark! Denn Du kämpfst jeden Tag gegen das fieseste Monster an!

Info utile du jour en #psychiatrie: les biais cognitifs dans les troubles psychiques, un sujet essentiel!
Aujourd'hui, ce sera les biais d'attribution des évènements et comment ils sont abordés en thérapie
C'est parti ⬇️ 1/13
Les biais cognitifs sont liés à la metacognition ou "pensées sur la pensée", qui correspond à notre capacité à connaître et utiliser nos propres processus de pensées. Elle nous permet de prendre du recul sur la façon d'analyser le monde qui nous entoure 2/13
Exemples de processus de pensées:
- stratégie de calcul mental
- le mot sur le bout de la langue (Feeling of knowing) ou "je sais que je sais"
- nos stratégies propres de lecture ou d'apprentissage (indispensables à connaître et maîtriser en études de médecine par ex)

CN: #Trauer

Die Dunkelheit wirkt so viel dunkler,
Wenn man weiß, dass man nun ohne seinen besten Freund 🐶🐾 gegen sie kämpfen muss.
Ich fühle mich so orientierungslos und verloren. Und ich habe keine Ahnung, wie ich das schaffen soll.
Wie ich den Kampf diesmal -ohne ihn-
Gewinnen soll.

Er war mein Halt, in den aller dunkelsten Momenten.
Bei ihm brauchte ich keine Worte, die mir gerade so fehlen. Er war einfach da, hat mir halt gegeben. Und hat diese Momente mit mir ausgehalten, ohne dass ich etwas sagen, tun oder funktionieren musste.
