1/🧵 An exacerbating factor in #LongCOVID is the “Quality of Life (QOL) Gap”🧵👇

…when a person’s expectations about QOL are at odds w their reality.
 
“Covid was over & Long COVID hit my brain, heart & GI.”
 
Let me unpack a study of ICU survivors…

2/ Read the thread I attached to the first tweet.

From the cancer literature, we learned about the QOL Gap.

If people appropriately prepare for their “ACTUAL” QOL, there’s a narrow gap and all is well.

If not, #Depression & #Despair too often set in.
3/ This study from Johns Hopkins by @vitaincerta & team adds to our understanding in a way that will apply so well to #COVID ICU survivors.

These are ARDS patients, which is almost always what lands COVID pts in the ICU and later with #PICS.

REFLECTIONS ON FORGIVENESS // FORGIVENESS OF SELF // THE GIFT OF PEACE OF MIND // JOHN 14:27

Happy Sunday, beloved children of God! 🌅☀️
As we wrap up our series on “Forgiveness of Self”, we find ourselves in John 14.
John 14 deals with the well known truth of Jesus being “the way, the truth, and the life.” Internalizing this truth has far-reaching impact in the life of a believer.
Our focus text comes to us from verse 27. Here, Jesus bestows on us, His magnificent GIFT OF PEACE OF MIND. He tells us that though He must physically depart the Earth, He’ll LEAVE HIS OWN PEACE with us.

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.

REFLECTIONS ON FORGIVENESS // FORGIVENESS OF SELF // A STEADFAST LOVE, A COVENANT OF PEACE // ISAIAH 54:10

Happy Wednesday, beloved children of The Most High God. 🌅☀️❤️ Image
Today’s focus text comes to us from the book of Isaiah, chapter 54. Isaiah 54 focuses largely on God’s everlasting love for ALL of His people & how this love HEALS ALL our sorrows. This, however, hinges on our CHOICE to abide in Him, on HIS terms, & not on our own.
Isaiah 54:10 paints a glorious picture of God’s steadfast love for us! 😍
Can you imagine mountains departing & hills being removed? What a sight that would be! How intense would that be?
Is it even likely that such a thing could happen?

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
#vss365
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.

Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

Here’s an idea: how about just turn your vent on or smell the air or just heat your pan and don’t spend $50000 on a new smart stove

Thread de apreciação dos perpétuos de Sandman, escrito por Neil Gaiman. Texto tirado do arco Estação das brumas: Um prelúdio.
#Sandman #Perpetuos #NeilGaiman #Theendless #Dream #Death #Destiny #Despair #Delirium #Destruction #Desire
Desejo tem estatura mediana. É improvável que algum dia se produza um retrato que lhe faça justiça, porque vê-la (ou vê-lo) é amá-la (ou amá-lo) de forma apaixonada e dolorosa, acima de todas as coisas.
Desejo exala um perfume quase subliminar de pêssegos maduros e projeta duas sombras: uma negra, de contornos nítidos, e a outra translúcida e indistinta como a névoa sobre o asfalto fervente.
Desejo sorri em lampejos breves, como a luz do sol resplandecendo no gume de um faca.
