alright #EDAW2020 day 7 let's DO THIS THREAD. (I sound like a spin instructor: HEY FRIDAY WHAT'S HAPPENING!)
eating disorder recovery: arguably one of the most under-talked-about-and-yet-assumed aspects of the #EatingDisorders research and advocacy world. Also, what I did my Masters AND PhD on for a total of 530 pages! #EDAW2020
every article on #EDRecovery seems to start with: "we lack a consensus definition of recovery" or "despite high relapse rates eating disorder recovery is possible" or "eating disorders are serious, and recovery is hard" or something similar #EDAW2020

Starting June 1, I will tweet a chapter each day from my new book goodreasons.info about how the light of evolutionary biology can dissolve the mists that swirl around mental disorders. Well, some mists for some disorders. @DuttonBooks @hbes2019 @LondonEvolution @ISEMPH
From the Preface: I wanted to write this book as soon as I realized that evolution could explain why bodies are vulnerable to disease. But the rest of medicine had to come first. Why We Get Sick stirred lots of interest. The new book is about why mental illness exists at all.
For each chapter I address the question, "So what?" Saying what is true changes only views unless it also changes what people do. Mental health clinicians who understand evolution do their work differently and better. For all others, self-understanding is valuable in itself.

Nice @FrontPediatrics paper providing guidance for docs and #pwME in the diagnosis and management of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome #MECFS

#MedEd #MedTwitter #chronicillness #chronicpain #SickNotTired
frontiersin.org/article/10.338…
2. #MECFS is commonly misdiagnosed as a #somatic disorder

#pwME "..have been humiliated or dismissed by other providers, so [doctors] will need to be.. nonjudgmental.. & acknowledge that #MECFS is not a #psychological condition but a real illness"

frontiersin.org/article/10.338…
3. #MECFS symptoms can be diverse, complex, fluctuate and overlap with many other conditions making the diagnosis difficult

This @FrontPediatrics paper lists 33 (!) co-morbidities commonly associated with #MECFS

Borderline Personality Disorder aka Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder is one of the most misunderstood, stigmatised & complex mental health diagnoses (Thread) #BPD #EUPD
#MentalHealthAwareness
One could write pages relating to the condition BPD and a layman’s understanding would still be incomplete. For this reason I am going to try and keep it short, simple and concise as I can and explain to you what BPD is to me.
BPD is intense feelings of loneliness & an inability to sit with myself without resorting to poor coping behaviours #BPD #EUPD #MentalHealthAwareness
