Ich habe nun sehr lange überlegt, ob ich schreibe. Angesichts dieser völlig beschissenen Lage, diesem epochalen politischen Versagen und diesen ganzen Arschlöchern da draußen, möchte ich aber, dass ihr mal merkt, dass Eure "Helden" nicht unverwundbar sind.
2 Jahre Corona. Zig Lockdowns, zig Querdenker-Clowns, zig mal Quarantäne, dumme politische Entscheidungen und der Glaube, dass das med. Personal es schon wieder richten wird. Völlige Planlosigkeit, völlige Ignoranz, grenzenlose Blödheit und die Hoffnung, dass alle durchhalten.
Die Angst sich auf Arbeit zu infizieren. Das Leid, die Qual und den Tod täglich vor Augen. Die Kinder ungeimpft und schutzlos in ihrer Schule und der Kita ausgeliefert. Immer darauf wartend, dass sich einer von beiden infiziert und meine ganze Familie erkrankt.

Top down solutions mean someone that doesn't want to cut back will have to
Obviously not appropriate for everyone, but mass prescription numbers by itself are not evidence that individuals are taking too many

So, @NICEComms released the latest draft of its updated guidelines for the treatment of adult #depression. Although the timeline can be unpredictable, we're probably getting close to the final version. Let's do a thread!

nice.org.uk/news/nice-crea…
If there was ever any doubt that "evidence-based medicine" should NOT be taken to imply sole reliance on the evidence and nothing else, depression guidelines are a prime example. The problem is so large and the treatment options so poor that this is, to a great extent, political.
To remind everyone, in the distant 2004, with Clinical Guideline 23 (CG23), NICE pioneered the "stepped care model" for the treatment of depression and the idea of using exercise for cases of mild depression.

🚨BREAKING: #Fluvoxamine—a cheap drug for #depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder—reduced the need for hospitalization among high-risk unvaccinated adults with #COVID19 in a large placebo-controlled randomized study.
apnews.com/article/db6060…
Among ~1,500 #COVID19 patients in #Brazil randomized for #fluvoxamine or placebo, #fluvoxamine reduced the need for hospitalization or prolonged medical observation by 1/3.

Encouraging results, but please still #GetVaccinated!

#coronavirus #SARSCoV2

Researchers tested #fluvoxamine because it reduces inflammation, likely blunting the downstream effects of #coronavirus infection.

Several earlier, smaller studies showed promising results, but none was as large or persuasive as this randomized placebo-controlled trial.

Okay, that's it. YOU asked for this. Kleiner Rant.

Ich hab gerade folgende Nachricht bekommen:

"Ja Coeur, wenn es dir nicht gut geht, solltest du einfach versuchen, glücklich zu sein und das Beste aus der Situation rauszuholen. Es gibt in allen Dingen etwas Positives. Du bist doch sonst so stark."

Fuck.
Off.
Now.
Wisst ihr, ist lustig. Weil als ich 3 Wochen nicht gegessen und geschlafen hab, mich nur von Zigaretten und Energy ernährt hab, da hat man sowas nicht zu mir gesagt. Da ist man davon ausgegangen, dass ich nur einen schlechten Tag nach dem anderen hatte. Weil ich gelächelt hab.

Excellent @wellcometrust reports about #MentalHealth are like buses, you wait for one and then two come along at once 🚐🚐. Time for a thread 🧵:
The first report summarises what we’ve learned so far about the evidence for active ingredients of effective interventions for youth #anxiety and #depression: wellcome.org/reports/what-s…
It's a fascinating report and covers interventions spanning the cellular to the societal: from gut microbiome 🧪 to engagement with the arts 🎭, from reducing levels of inflammation in the body📉 to neighbourhood cohesion 🏘️

(@manijadegarcia) #Compassion thread here, discussing ideas for survival, stress management, joy & healing using the acronym ACCESS to organize the ideas.

Be back after a break to dig in! 🥰

[QT]

1/
(@manijadegarcia) #Compassion to me is like creating welcoming, gentle internal space for the things I am #accepting—so I can be curious instead of judgemental about them. I'm reminded of indigenous views of trauma as "wisdom" & a "teacher," that can lead us to healing.

2/
(@manijadegarcia) #compassion & #acceptance are closely related in my experience, like a bi-directional positive correlation, (increasing either can increase the other—try not to get hung up on stats "rules.") & #SelfCompassion is super powerful for general #MentalWellness.

Dankbar für dieses Feedback auf den #Burnout-Beitrag gestern.

#Digital technologies, which have become one of the important parts of our lives, have numerous benefits in many areas such as #education, #health, #economy, etc. But, and there is a big but?
What are the costs of #digitalization for #children and #young people? How should families treat children on the internet or social media using? What do the figures tell us? Here is the threat on Children & Young People’s Mental Health in the Digital Age by the OECD in 2018. Image
Almost half of the world is connected to the #internet, and in countries that are members of the OECD almost everyone is #online. For children and young people today, being online and using social media have become an integral part of their lives.

It's #WorldMentalHealthDay. This thread 🧵 is about #depression and #nicotine. A higher % of people w/depression smoke than people w/o depression. Depression is serious. Seek help if you're silently suffering alone. This isn't easily "fixed" by a lifestyle change! #MIAW21

E-cigarette use was not associated with an escalation in depression symptoms.

E-cigarette use was not related to the development of depression symptoms over time.

Du bist Scheisse.

Du kannst nichts.

Du bist dumm.

Du bist faul.

Du weißt nichts.

Du bist (zu) dick.

Du bist hässlich.

Deine Klamotten gehen garnicht.

Deine Haare sehen aus wie ein Hornissennest.

Du schaust alt aus.

Du bist ein Monster.

Niemand liebt dich.
Niemand mag dich.

Du bist falsch.

Du bist hässlich.

Du bist nichts wert.

Du bist nie gut genug.

Wie soll jemand dich lieben, so Scheisse, wie du bist?

Du bist alleine.

Selbst deine Kinder lehnen dich ab.

Geh einfach weg.

Niemand wird dich vermissen, wieso auch?

...
Wenn wir hören würden, wie ein Mensch diese Dinge zu einem anderen sagt, wir wären mindestens entsetzt, wenn nicht sogar schockiert. Vielleicht würden wir den Mut finden, den betroffenen Menschen zu schützen, vor all diesen furchtbaren und verletzenden Sätzen.

Not being funny but perhaps everyone who previously labelled benefits claimants as scroungers, malingerers and far worse, could recognise the difficulties involved.
Maybe imagine also trying to live on a 5th of their income, with #disabilities on top 》》

Almost everyone learned these past 18mths how being unable to earn their own money feels & the #depression that causes; the instability & #stress that brings to a home, family & relationships.

Maybe remember too that whilst able bodied, you were helped during the #pandemic 》》
While I fully understand that losing that help now is a huge blow (trust me I know), it should be understood that the most #vulnerable received precisely zero help. In a period where delivery slots were taken by able bodied people & buses were a no-go, our costs skyrocketed 》》

Hallo liebe Gruppe,

Ich bekomme grad eine Hiobsbotschaft nach der nächsten und ich habe den Eindruck das vieles mit der Impfung zusammenhängt. Ich habe den Eindruck, die Impfung ist keineswegs für Menschen mit Immun-erkrankungen oder schwachem Immunsystem geeignet.
Diese Impfung kann starke Entzündungen hervorrufen.

Seit der Impfung:

Ich selbst: (nur eine Impfung): erhöhte Blutgerinnungswerte

REFLECTIONS ON FORGIVENESS // FORGIVENESS OF SELF // NO CONDEMNATION IN CHRIST JESUS // ROMANS 8:1

Happy Saturday, beloved family! I hope your weekend has been off to an excellent start! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus text for today, comes to us from Romans chapter 8, which focuses on life in the Spirit.

In verse 1, we have THE blessed assurance from God, that there is indeed NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
To be “in Christ Jesus” means that He dwells within us, & us within Him. We are ONE.
So, by sending His own son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins, God made sure that there is NO CONDEMNATION for us.

1/🧵🎥 Leading #COVID19 ICU Doctor @DavidJanz5 in New Orleans, the epicenter of U.S. #DeltaVariant surge, testified before US Senate Committee on Health, Education & Labor. Here is what he said: “Studies of #FrontLine workers caring for COVID-19 patients have shown…👇

3/ Symptoms of #burnout are experienced by over half of critical care physicians. This is the state of the workforce asked to return to the #COVID19 #frontlines for a second, third, and now fourth wave.

I SO respect & appreciate @ZJAyres sharing this today. There is ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY nothing wrong with taking medication to improve your #mentalhealth . I used to be vehemently opposed to taking psychotropic medication…
because of stigma & my Christian upbringing. NOW, based on my own lived experiences & through seeking out EXTENSIVE knowledge in the #mentalhealth space, I have a VERY different view of #mentalhealth & medications than most followers of Christ do.
Here’s the thing. Often times, people NEED medication to bring back the levels of their brain chemicals to where it needs to be. And that’s totally OK. Everyone’s condition is a little bit different.

Mal die Frage an die #notjustsad Bubble, wie Ihr mit vergleichen umgeht. Ein kurzer Thread.

Ich habe seit meiner Kindheit das Problem mich immer mit anderen in meiner Alterklasse vergleichen zu müssen.
Sei es die Körpergröße, Schulnoten, Taschengeld/Gehalt, Abschluss, Familienstand, soziales Umfeld/Wohlstand etc.

Einige dieser Vergleiche wie Körpergröße und Schulnoten habe ich mittlerweile einstellen können. Dafür sind andere stärker in den Mittelpunk gekommen.
Meine Eltern, aber vorallem mein Vater hat mich leider schon früh angefangen mit anderen zu vergleichen. Du bist "körperlich schwächer" als xy, du bist unfähiger als xy, deine Noten sind miserabel, du hast den schlechteren Abschluss, aus dir wird also sowieso nix etc.

"Every new beginning of consciousness, every essential process of consciousness, must first arise from such a state [blocking resistances]; only then is the human being open-minded enough to let the new element in & let things happen." ~Marie-Louise von Franz, Creation Myths, 37
"Many creative people start their creativity with terrific #depression. They have such a well-constructed & strong #ego consciousness that the unconscious must use very strong means—send them a hellish depression—before they can loosen up enough to let things happen." ~von Franz
"I have noticed that people who tend to have those creative depressions, if they can anticipate them by playing, need not have the #depression, & whenever one can induce a person in such a heavy depression to start playing in some way, the state of depression is lifted at once…
