Year 2 of my #PhD when I was atvthe peak of my #PhysicalActivity and #fitness! This was the time when anything felt acheivable 😀
Loved my #hair that I had grown since the start of my PhD! This was #onceinalifetime thing for me to do! I donated 12’ to @locksoflove #cancersurvivor
Then the #science #reality and #depression hit me! It was the most unimaginable experience! It’s easy to brush off when other people say what depression entails, but the #experience was very profound and physically devastating! I noticed the smallest things around me differently!
At the end of year 5, with the help of many #people I beat the #depression! Ofcourse I had occasional flairs from that #experience. But the #rockbottom was something else! In a way I’m #glad I experienced it ad I truly cared about my PhD #research. @OpenAcademics @AcademicChatter

Zur Abwechslung mal wieder ein langer Thread, der sehr persönlich ist, zu mehreren Themen, die eng miteinander verknüpft sein können und präsenter sind, als manche vielleicht glauben. (1/24)

(unrolled unter dem letzten Tweet)
„Wer ist denn der Mann/die Frau in der Beziehung?“, dürfte so ziemlich jede*r in einer gleichgeschlechtlichen Beziehung schon mal gefragt worden sein, gefolgt von der (zu recht) genervten Antwort: Niemand. Was selbstverständlich nicht nur richtig, sondern vor allem ja (2/24)
der ausschlaggebende Punkt einer gleichgeschlechtlichen Beziehung ist. Allerdings heißt das nicht, dass es innerhalb der Beziehung keine gesellschaftlich vorgefertigten Rollenbilder geben kann.

In der Beziehung mit meiner Ex-Freundin sah sie mich als „männlichen Part“. (3/24)

While we’re on the topic of National Suicide Prevention Month, let’s discuss these ridiculous images that get attached to every article about #suicide ever. They’re called “head clutchers.”

In short: DON’T USE THEM.

#bethere #nspm20 #suicideprevention ImageImageImageImage
They’re ridiculous. They’re unnecessarily sensational and dramatic, and evocative of all those sad, scary, crazy people in asylum imagery we’ve been fed every Halloween, and in horror movies, for years and years.

#bethere #suicide #suicideprevention #nspm20
Those images in our heads we call up when we’re looking for thumbnails for our articles on suicide? All those crazy people? Those people were forcibly restrained, lived in filthy conditions, were medicated beyond belief, experimented on, sterilized. #suicideprevention #bethere

Since the start of the worldwide #pandemic the U.S. government has poured trillions of dollars into the battered economy, hoping to avoid another #depression , While this has kept many businesses across the country alive, it has sparked on what the impact would be on the world’s
financial markets. For years, bankers and #hedgefund managers had been piling on more increasingly risky financial products that the markets were deeming as #safehavens
On a level of the entire U.S. equities market, the sustained lowering of the risk-free interest rate brings
about an inevitable rise in the price of asset classes, as we have seen over the past 12 years.
Having kept interest rates at historically low levels since the aftermath of the financial crisis, the Federal Reserve had very little room to move rates lower when the pandemic

Positive #transformations are always great to see as an end product. The journey to a transformation however is almost always hidden. On the first day of #phd #gradschool in @umasschemengg, I introduced myself by saying....contd.

....I came to the US for the ‘#science’ and ‘#fitness’ industry that is known to be the best in the world. Everyone got a good laugh 😂 out of it. However, I wasn’t kidding at all 😈! I always had this vision of a scientist 👨🏾‍🔬who is also ripped to the core physically 💪🏾.
In that pursuit, I reached my best physique towards the end of year 2 of my #PhD when I also got #married 👩🏻‍🤝‍👨🏽 to @priyankaitkar9. I was still not quite there with the #science. Today, 4 years later, I am successfully @PhDone2020 and getting close to the best shape of my life!

Study found that head pain (#migraine & #headache) has the "strongest association with suicidality" of all types of #pain. The risk is independent of depression & likely linked to altered functioning of serotonergic systems, not poor coping (Ilgen et al).…
"People with chronic #headache or #migraine were 4.3 times more likely to think about suicide, 4.6 times more likely to plan suicide, & 6.5 times more likely to have attempted suicide in the past 12-months than those without chronic headaches" (Ilgen).
Multiple studies report a particularly strong relationship between #migraine & #suicide. But "even after controlling for depression, anxiety disorders, & substance use disorders," most types of severe &/or #ChronicPain are "associated with suicidal thoughts and attempts" (Ilgen).

Today @ONS we release new data on #Coronavirus and #Depression in Adults.
As part of the weekly Opinions Survey this June, we were able to resurvey 3,500 people who had been surveyed on mental health and depression pre-pandemic.

The results are stark - a short thread
First - we find almost one in five adults (19.2%) experienced some form of moderate to severe depression during the Pandemic (2 weeks in June)
This is almost double the 9.7% from before Covid19…
The results are particularly stark for younger adults (16-39) compared with 40-69s and 70 years and over.

The proportion of younger adults with depression up to 31% in June, compared with 11% pre-Covid. Image

To all the new #graduate students starting their #PhD or the ones already in it. It's true that the #journey of a PhD is like #life packed into a few years. You must also understand that it is not your entire life either! Life goes on despite how this journey goes or ends! Thread
I made this #infographic to represent my journey in #gradschool at @UMassChemEng @UMassAmherst. When you're in the thick of things, It will be hard to see the light at the end. Everyone around you will keep telling you that but most of the times it will seem #impossible!
Year 3, 4, and 5, I went through multiple cycles of #depression. I cannot put a finger on anything specific of why that happened. What I realized though, is that every time I came out of that cycle, I found enormous amounts of hidden #energy and #strength.

My recent outdoor photos have been vibrant -- I've been finding unlikely greens despite this summer drought -- but the canvas of my soul has been drab and disorganized. The undulations of a #depression...
...have evaded the consciousness of people exposed to me, but they do comment on my scatter-brainedness as if that is some kind of character flaw rather than a symptom of an illness. The people who probably need to see this don't follow me...
...on Twitter or Facebook, so this is going out to all of you who don't experience me in real life or via Zoom. I am not much of a direct communicator, so I don't state outright "Hey, what the fuck is wrong with you...

I was working for some people from. the #DisabilityRights sector in India and had disclosed about my long-term #depression and #fibromyalgia to them (I have done it publicly too but that is besides the point here). 1/n
The lady incharge there started coercing me a few days later to accept that I have Bipolar Disorder and that she will help me get a diagnose and prescription, so that their venture appears "inclusive" for the records. When I refused harassment began. 2/n
My work that was applauded till then suddenly was labelled substandard and anything I said was called tantrum or disorder. Details about my health were shared with other colleagues without my #consent and was used as a slur against me in work spaces. 3/n

At the end of February 2020, there were 32,890,000 people in paid employment or self-employed work in the UK - officially a record high.

However, there had been just under 500,000 jobs threatened due to #Brexit and the economic uncertainty that (disaster) would have on the UK.
Then came the #Covid19UK lockdown (too late imho), and jobs started to be threatened at an alarming rate.

Campaign groups, trade unions and even the media have talked about a #Tsunami of job losses or how the UK economy is #haemorrhaging jobs.

As of today 12,380,550 #jobs and
#apprenticeships have already been lost or are at risk of bring lost - that is an unprecedented 37.65% of the UK workforce.

The @Conservatives government lead by the failing, compulsive liar @BorisJohnson has provided a number of support packages to boost the economy and protect

Late every night -- as I finish sorting my photos at #Flickr -- a darkness comes over me. Often it comes without subject. This mood is impossible to visualize in a photograph because outsiders expect a cause for every #depression. There is none.
"Cautious" is the title I gave to the last photo. It's the proper state of mind for the times. We need to be cautious. I have been inside since the 7th of July due to #COVID19, avoiding my fellow human beings who walk around without masks, merrily spreading infection.

Today, I participated in a med school's day on mental illness. I found myself indescribably moved hearing another panelist's story abt her sister who died by suicide. "Some people ask me if I am angry at my sister...How could I ever be? I'm sad that she suffered so much" A THREAD
Suicide is highly personal and very sensitive. The darkest moment in my life was the day I decided to kill myself 5 years ago. That day, I entered a horrible spiral of hating myself becuz I was going to hurt everyone I loved. Hating myself only made me want to kill myself more.
I made it through that suicide attempt but I hated myself for being willing to hurt everyone I loved. Coming back from that suicide attempt was the hardest thing that I'd ever done in my life. My depression was actually worse after surviving: my body was alive, my soul was not.

In spite of the atrocious and impolite behavior of dermatologists in my global region, I still promote their #BIGPHARMA consensus of HS. 😎 #HidradenitisSuppurativa
I don't hold a grudge. It's the HS community that does things like that. I'm here for the greater good. And it has cost me. Bigtime.
So dudes, when you publish stuff about the VOICES of HS patients and how inclusive you are in regards to patient involvement in research, all I hear is a public relations exercise.

Not just a personal opinion.

I have lived experience.

I take my #selfies for the purpose of building my #selfesteem. I know I am not more beautiful than other people. I know I am not more popular. The number of friends who view the my #photography is very small. But they are survival of sorts.

Yes, I am a wreck sometimes. I don't believe in taking the pains to look like a person who I am not. If my hair is a mess, then it is a mess. That is how I am. Many people cannot afford to be like I am. They cannot afford to let their #depression show.

These are hard times. People who struggle with depression or anxiety are suffering more than usual, often silently so you don't see.

Maybe you're one of them. Maybe you care about someone who is.

You can feel better. You can help others feel better.
#depression #anxiety
/2 First: you're worth it, the people you care about are worth it. You make the world a better and more interesting place, however depression lies to you. The project of You is worth defending. When it seems like nobody cares, that's usually because you're so good at masking.
/3 In bad times is that it gets harder to perceive other people suffering -- it gets lost in the noise of everyone suffering. So your ability to mask how you feel is unusually effective. The result is you feel alone -- cut off from support by your own success in masking pain.

I have joined the Army of brave souls who completed their #PhD during the global #pandemic of 2020 #COVID19 . I am full of gratitude to everyone that contributed to this mammoth achievement directly or indirectly. 🎓👨‍🔬👨‍💼 @forbeslabumass @JWLeeJWL @UMassChemEng #microbiome #mucus ImageImage
I am looking into ways to have my name on the diploma to be 'Abhinav Priyanka Sharma'. My wife @priyankaitkar9 has contributed equally towards this degree emotionally. Without her love & support it would be incredibly hard to find the courage to keep going when I hit rock bottom.
My parents never went to college but made sure I had the best education possible. Even if that meant keeping me in the city away from them since the age of 5. They have invested their entire life emotionally and financially to my education. Hope I can give back as much as I can.

Many not only make themselves wretched in this way, but they sacrifice health and happiness to a morbid imagination. There are things in their surroundings that are not agreeable, and their countenances wear a continual frown

that more plainly than words expresses discontent. These depressing emotions are a great injury to them healthwise, for by hindering the process of digestion they interfere with nutrition. While grief and anxiety cannot remedy a single evil, they can do great harm;

but cheerfulness and hope, while they brighten the pathway of others, "are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh"
