Woah..that was freaky but familiar. Was lying down & decided to get up to take pain meds for #endometriosis and #fibroids and it felt as painful to get up as the day after surgery. In kitchen, sweating, lightheaded. Quickly squatted to avoid passing out holding onto fridge door
..which swung open..but I did not fall. Then once head feeling better, stood up long enough to take meds...then walked, wobbly and lightheaded to chair. I can't quite feel my palms but that will come back. This probably gets to be called 10/10 pain..but maybe really an 8/10
Great..and a migraine too..scotoma.. taking a migraine med and lying down. Man, when it rains it pours.

Mother Nature is such a misogynist.

SO glad I did not decide to rent a car and try to go Finger Lakes this weekend to see peak foliage.

@GOP @GOPChairwoman @realDonaldTrump you guys all want a #greateconomy and to be the party of jobs then do the right thing. Why would you let extended unemployment benefits lapse? You know that causes a #housing crisis. You dont want to fund testing either? That causes cases to
surge. It causes citizens unable to work. It causes children unable to go to school. But you want to cut off #testing for #Covid_19 #CoronaVirusUpdate . You know all of your actions and inactions make things worse not #MAGA. If you wonder why poll numbers are in the tank its bc
people know what youre doing to them. It seems like you all have abandoned America. Youve abandoned #HealthcareHeroes. Youve abandoned our nations #children . Youve abandoned our #nursinghomes. Youve abandoned #mothers and #fathers. Youve abandoned looking out for #Americans. You

1/many This thread contains the words of my amazing sister who is a #nurse #essentialworker working in the trenches fighting #COVID19
She has been encountering life & death situations on a daily basis. Ppl need to open up their eyes & pay attention. #ItsOkayToNotBeOkay
2/ This is loss. This is loosing in OT with 38 seconds remaining on the clock, all the MVP players are in, but the other team intercepts and wins. The other team that won? Death. 5 nights in a row I battled the angel of death on someone very close to my age.
3/ 5 nights in a row I climbed on top of the bed in full PPE: gown, 3 masks, a face shield, goggles, and 2 pairs of gloves to physically try to circulate the epinephrine into your heart for it to restart.

1/13 Our daughter is an #ICU #nurse on a #COVID19 unit at a suburban #Atlanta hospital. Since March on every shift she is facing disease and death on a massive constant scale, more in her young life than my wife and I—both physicians—ever had to cope with. We pray for her daily.
2/13 She is not particularly political, so when she called this week with a combination of fear, distress and anger about our #Georgia Governor’s position on masks we listened. And we had no answers. When she rhetorically asked what he was thinking we couldn’t say.
3/13 When she asked if he understood how many people are so ill from #coronavirus we had no idea. Then we realized our daughter is putting her life on the line daily like so many others and asked what would we do if God forbid we lost her as a result of her service.

THREAD. A few highlights from and thoughts on this interesting @nytimes article, "U.S. Coronavirus Cases Are Rising Sharply, but Deaths Are Still Down."

#COVID #COVIDー19 #COVID19 #coronavirus
"After a minor late-spring lull, the number of confirmed #coronavirus cases in the United States is once again on the rise.... And yet the virus appears to be killing fewer of the people it infects."
"In April and May, #COVID19 led to as many as 3,000 deaths per day, and claimed the lives of roughly 7-8% of Americans known to have been infected. The number of daily deaths is now closer to 600, and the death rate is less than 5%."

1/3 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: nationally epidemic growth continues to slow but outbreaks remain in long term care, shelters, workplaces, etc. Most worrying is community spread in & around hotspots, e.g. greater Toronto & Montreal areas.
2/3 Outbreaks represent closed settings where #publichealth measures can be targeted to #StoptheSpread, however community transmission presents additional challenges for #TestandTrace to control spread at the population level.
3/3 This is where everyone’s TIRELESS EFFORTS ARE NEEDED #DoYourPart:
#publichealth ➡️#testandTrace
#healthcareheroes ➡️treat & heal

1/5 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: another weekend is ahead & reopening continues, but the ever present worry is that if we move too fast, relax too much, #COVID19 will rebound. We’ve got to be mindful of the hotspots!
2/5 Nationally, more than 50% of 🇨🇦’s #COVID19 cases are now recovered and daily case counts continue to decline but there are still active cases in 9 provinces. Québec & Ontario continue to report most (~ 95%) new cases & deaths.
3/5 Hotspots in and around our most populous cities, #Toronto & #Montreal, continue to smoulder, as #COVID19 exploits inequalities, taking hold in communities who experience overcrowding, lower incomes & health inequalities.

@SpeakerPelosi and the #Democrats introduced a massive $3 trillion-dollar stimulus package called “The Heroes Act,” named in honor of the monies allotted to front-line emergency workers.
By: @hijodelcuervo
#Hero #HealthcareHeroes #healthcare #COVID19…
The new bill also seeks to repeal the egregious provisions included in the CARES Act, which allow hedge fund managers, real estate speculators, and business owners to apply them retroactively all the way back to 2017.…
The Democrats’ HEROES act actually goes further in undermining the help offered to small business owners by excluding the Paycheck Guarantee Act.

1/8 Today marks the beginning of #NationalNursingWeek, when we take the opportunity to recognise & acknowledge the important role that nurses play in shaping & humanising development and delivery of health services. #Nurses2020
2/8 We all know that nurses deliver expert care with that special power of nurturing and we are very aware of the many sacrifices they have made to be there for their patients in every area of healthcare during the #COVID19 crisis.
#NationalNursingWeek #Nurses2020

SPECIAL REPORT: A number of the planet’s richest people, including #BILLIONAIRE co-founder of @PayPal @peterthiel, are escaping to New Zealand to shelter in luxury bunkers amid the #COVID 19 #pandemic.
By: @AlanRMacLeod
The new range of luxury private bunkers are dug deep underground in the countryside and are covered with earth, the point being that even neighbors will have no idea that they are there, let alone the general public. 
#COVID19 #Food #TrumpLiesAmericansDie Image
Prices tend to start around $2 million and can reach up to $11 million for units that include luxury bathrooms, gun ranges, and swimming pools. Thiel himself chose instead to buy a bizarre-looking, $4.7 million home replete with a secure panic room.

“What the eye doesn't see and the mind doesn’t accept, DOES EXIST!”

👇 picture of the hands of Thomas Edison’s assistant. Later died from Cancer due exposure to the same ‘invisible’ X-Ray radiation

Why are we discussing this in 2020, during #Covid_19 ?

1/ Image
Radiation is not visible to the human eye and neither is Coronavirus.

The size of the virus is about 0.1 um, smaller than a red blood cell and even some bacteria

Both can have devastating effects , if we do not protect ourselves

2/ Image
#Covid_19 can be transmitted by droplets >5 µm which can quickly form aerosols ≤5 µm.

Besides the well-known transmission by coughing and sneezing, the virus can be transmitted even during SPEECH….in fact the louder you speak, more are chances of transmission..

1/8 Today my remarks focus on the disproportionate impacts and severe outcomes of #COVID19 on seniors. It’s hard to calculate the hardships endured and the grief that remains for those we’ve lost. #OlderAdults
2/8 Prevention & control of #COVID19 in high-risk populations is crucial for controlling this & future pandemic waves. These outbreaks drive up the case fatality rate, accelerate spread, & continue to spillover into the community.
3/8 But it is older adults who bear the brunt of #COVID19. Though an estimated 20% of COVID-19 cases in Canada are linked to long-term care homes, over 80% of all deaths are among seniors residing in these settings. #ProtecttheVulnerable

Love, LOVE @NicoleB_MD for doing this. Shout out to @DrToddWo & @DrJCoftheDC too for their savvy outreach to youth patients- am especially impressed with @DrJCoftheDC of @OHSUNews as a role model in communities of color. @AmerAcadPeds #TikTok #tweetiatrician #Pediatrics
*This* is what it means to create “safe space” - no shaming or judgement, only encouragement, kindness, affirmation from a #tweetiatrician who shares that she too was a #teenmom.
Meet patients where they are.
Be a role model.

@NicoleB_MD @AmerAcadPeds
Am learning so much from @DrJCoftheDC of @OHSUNews - on engaging youth through new forms of #socialmedia like #TikTok and being a role model for #BlackExcellence here in partnership with @NFL players @NFLPA
