May is #MentalHealrhAwarenessMonth and one of the MH issues we never discuss in the US is #grief. It sent me to the hospital two weeks ago. I wrote about that and more here, and got some experts to explain the impact.

Grief: A Mental Health Crisis…
A trauma explained how #grief is impacted by social norms: men are expected to hide/control their feelings. This makes #grief even more dangerous. Men who lose a spouse are more likely to choose suicide. #Grief also leads men to substance abuse.
Women are more likely to experience heart-related problems like I did: #grief has physical ramifications, as one expert said. The pandemic made many of us party to collective grief: as a society we suddenly lost over 1M people we never even mourned.

LET'S EXPLORE🌿Understanding #Grief🌿 The Dual Process Model of grief, developed by Margaret Stroebe and Henk Schut, suggests that grief is a dynamic process of oscillating between 2 types of coping: loss-oriented, restoration-oriented. 1/10
💔Loss-Orientation💔 involves focusing on the pain of losing a loved one. This includes feelings of sadness, yearning, and longing. Acknowledge these feelings and give yourself permission to grieve. It's essential for healing. #grief #GriefSupport 2/10
🌱Restoration-Orientation🌱 is about engaging in activities and tasks unrelated to the loss. It means focusing on daily life and finding a new balance. This can include self-care, hobbies, and social interactions. #HealingJourney #grief 3/10

1/ 🌟 Thread: Disenfranchised Grief 🌟

Let's dive into the world of #grief that isn't openly acknowledged or socially supported, known as "disenfranchised grief". We'll cover its definition, examples, and ways to support people experiencing it. 🤗 #MentalHealth #Support
2/ 🧠 Origin of the Concept

The concept of disenfranchised #grief was first introduced by Dr. Kenneth J. Doka. He recognized the unique challenges faced by those experiencing grief that wasn't openly acknowledged or validated by society. #DisenfranchisedGrief #GriefEducation
3/ 📚 Definition

Disenfranchised #grief is a type of grief that society tends to overlook or minimize. It often results from losses that don't fit socially acceptable narrative, making it harder to find validation and support. #InvisibleGrief #Loss

Two years ago my mum died in hospital from v rare #chemo complications Bcs of covid rules we hadn’t been able to see her during her 3 wk hospital stay apart from briefly in her last 48 hrs on compassionate grounds. We had just come out of the horrific winter20/1 wave

1/3 #Gratitude: I Know What It Is Like…
To Overcome:

* #Homelessness
* Profound #Grief at the loss of hopes and dreams for a loved one
* #Failure - personal and professional

* Being misunderstood in my intentions
* A sense of loss of self and purpose
* Over-inflation of my own ego
* Soul crushing #poverty
* Compassion fatigue - profound in its depth
* Asking God, “Why?”
* Turning too far inward
3/3 * Lack of simple #forgiveness

It's the 1st December. I want to channel how I'm feeling into something positive & so would like to share a little more about what we know happened to Alexander in the hope it'll raise awareness of #sudc. I'm so grateful for the support that has given me strength to speak (1/?) Image
As many know, our lovely 3 year old son Alexander died on Boxing Day 2021. He had mild tummy bug symptoms over Christmas but otherwise seemed a little under the weather, nothing more. He danced to the Masked Singer with Freddie on Christmas Day night. One of my treasured memories
Although a little tired & still with mild tummy bug symptoms, Boxing Day showed no signs of anything more serious. After falling half asleep on the couch, Alexander suddenly had a seizure and suffered a cardiac arrest. He died a mere couple of hours later despite heroic efforts

This mornings rant is for ppl that keep losing ppl.

Or, ppl that keep losing ppl & there never seems to be time to process all the death, or for the people that constantly live in grief since they were young cause people are always dying.

And for Olivia E. #mourning #death
Olivia passed away the other day. Some sent me a screen shot on a story about someone saying goodbye. Apparently it happened last week.

Like all of us I rush to her social media “no way” I think. Looking for an obituary cause we live far from home now. #Minneapolis
My mind floods - which isn’t about Olivia - it’s about losing many friends and chosen family to these common killers 1) fetanyl 2) suicide 3) homicide.

My bias tells me it’s surely 1 of the 3. B/c I’ve lost more ppl to the top 2 - around 15-20 to be exact. #suicide #fetanyl

Important questions for those who may have received blocked property in a #grief #spray #spam attack from blocked #tornadocash #ETH addrsses remain unanswered. #OFAC may give clarity in an FAQ; are a few questions that would be helpful for OFAC to address.1st some background/1
By now all of #crypto knows that #OFAC sanctioned #ETH & #USDC addresses related to #Tornadocash and service providers and many #crypto users are struggling to adapt. Why? /2
We’re dealing with a law designed to regulate legal people & entities, &their property, not quasi-autonomous code used by third parties to transact third party assets to others. Arguably the designation exceeds #OFAC’s statutory authority. That’s an argument for another day. /3

2021 has been one crazy year for me.

Recently took a break from twitter as I needed to think & reflect in solitude.

My biggest learnings / relearnings of 2021 - A thread as random as my thoughts. :))

#Life is fragile.

We never know when it shall be our last breath. Covid just reinforced this.

Do good. Be good. Expect nothing.
Make mistakes but have no regrets.
Forgive . Make peace often .
Live life each day to the best of your abilities.

That's all that can be done!

Always ensure you have a nominee to all your investments. Don't take on unnecessary loans.

Make a WILL !

Inform your spouse / family.
Document everything correctly &

Else, this becomes an added pain later on for the bereaved family !

In the wee hours this morning I heard the heartbreaking news that Anne Rice died, surrounded by loved ones, due to complications from a stroke.
Anne revolutionized gothic horror writing with her layered, humanizing, and sensuous approach to storytelling...
Anne Rice initiated a trend toward more sympathetic portrayals of (say) vampires, telling the story of their eternal power and anguish from *their* point of view, which became the de facto norm for later shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Twilight, and True Blood.
The LGBTQ community in particular embraced Rice's supernatural creatures’ ‘outsider’ status as their own, and she embraced them right back, becoming an early safe haven and trusted voice for queer folk.

Slept badly woke early spooked with the “only 6” headline. I don’t meditate but like to start each day in my garden with a cuppa & birdwatching. Mum loved birdwatching too & we shared little anecdotes & updates. Little reminders like this, that your loved one is gone…
is sad but still comforting. My youngest is whipping up cookies for my brothers birthday lunch tomorrow I’m browsing mums recipes for inspiration I’m the cook. Another sad/happy as mums birthday is a couple of days later & we usually got together for a posh meal out.
Not sure why I’m posting this really, just reflecting on grief and how as a nation we seem to have become numb to the daily figures, cruel & thoughtless for those who covid DOES pose a life/death threat. Just reaching out to anyone mourning, or whose life is forever changed

1/ Παρασκευή με #fosstotounel, και ξεκινάμε #thread με την ανάλυση της υπόθεσης της #Ολυμπίας Κυρήκου, της οποίας χάθηκαν τα ίχνη το Σάββατο, 11 Νοεμβρίου 1995, απο την Νέα Ιωνία. Θα αναλύσουμε μία σειρά από 7 βίντεο της εκπομπής από το 1996 με πρώτο το
2/ H εκπομπή γίνεται στις 2 Φεβρουαρίου, 1996, με τους συγγενείς να απευθύνονται στην νεαρή τότε Αγγέλω, για να τους βοηθήσει στην αναζήτηση. Να θυμίσουμε ότι το #fosstotounel ξεκίνησε κάπου μέσα στο 1995, οπότε βλέπουμε τα πρώτα βήματα της εκπομπής και των συντελεστών..

1/ 🧵🎥 Chronic Pain

#Pain comes in all shapes & sizes. Let’s explore how we process pain. Watch & Listen to what Anderson Cooper tells Stephen Colbert about #grief and #suffering: “You can’t have happiness without having loss and suffering.”
2/ My lucid & kind patient (pic w written perm) uses scalding water as a coping mechanism for abdominal pain from pancreatitis. He wants to share his rationale.

#MedTwitter #ChronicPain #nurse
3/ Before I share what he told me, I first want to make my mindset as his #physician clear: My first job is to believe in him. Then to understand him. Then to devise a plan to help him.

A thread about #Grief.

Disclaimer: I've no formal training in psychology/psychiatry. This is my very personal take. So feel free to take whatever you want, and leave whatever you don't want. 1/2
Earlier this month I faced grief for the first time in a very personal sense when I lost my father to #COVID19. I was close to my grandparents, but it was different with them. And all other deaths I've had to mourn were not as directly impacting as my father's. 2/

My family, knowing how close I was to my #mother, is trying really hard to fill the gap

They mean well, but are wired so differently from me & see the world so differently, that it’s making it worse - I miss her more

She can’t be replaced
She’s gone

I am one of these circles.

I essentially want to be a circle of one right now, though.

Others’ ways of processing grief or their ideas of what I need can frustrate.

Everyone knows I was very close to Mommy.

But only I can take care of myself.
No one else can help me.
It’s not unique to grief. I accepted, a long, long time ago: only I can help myself.

I did find some sense of community in informal grief circles online. That meant a lot and helped in the first month. Now, it is just so personal, what my mother meant to me.

Why is someone who likely does not menstruate a sudden expert on #womenshealth to identify a WOC seeking #data #quality & #integrity as the women?
"Respecting" social science = using respectable methods, not online surveys.
What you see in the tweet and the "study" is ego, defensiveness & flagrant Dunning-Kruger effect for #womenshealth, #menstrualhealth, #COVID19, #vaccine #research.

The best way to demonstrate the value of a field is to be consistent on #quality not…
Academic language on #online #survey #data:
"systematically assess carelessness in a crowdsourced sample" Denial that quick & dirty is poor #quality is an odd use of time & ineffective. One could better defend one's merit, by delivering #quality per best practices and standards.

A year ago, my son Raphaël, also known as the activist IggyFox, died suddenly of an undiagnosed heart condition. Here’s what I have learned in #grief, and what he has taught me.
Even in the depths of despair, we are hard-wired to survive.
So if you are overwhelmed by loss of any kind, remember this: a new seed of new life is in you, germinating.
This is the seed of Future You. You won’t feel its growth for a long time. I didn’t. But it’s there. Trust it.
