Read sad story last night about Dr. Bucci, 50 year old Phychology & Brain Sciences Dept. Chairman, at Dartmouth that committed #Suicide 11 months after a lawsuit was filed by graduate #students in his department. He
2/ was NOT accused of sexual misconduct, but named in the suit for knowing about the professors’ inappropriate behavior as the Chair.I share many of the same feelings he expressed to friends and colleagues in his emails before he took his own life like: the case was deeply
3/ personal; reputation had been damaged; physical health diminished; false portrayal of his actions; being blamed unfairly; allegations & process “unfair”; how can they ever undo what they did to me & #wronglyaccused. Similarly, how I had reported the #disability

Just wanted to share with you an experience I had yesterday. Many of you won’t know me, or my story, or much less care. But I’m gonna tell you what happened anyway. A massive row took place between me and those supposedly closest to me. After many battles
against my demons, and issues with my living situation, this was my tipping point. I drove away with every intention of ending my life. As ‘luck’ would have it, it was @andysmanclubuk day. I decided to drive there, and see if I could be dissuaded from going
ahead with my plan. I arrived very early so I sat in my car and cried my eyes out. I then texted my mental health advocate out of desperation and told her what I was going to do. She then sent the police over. When they arrived they put me in the police van

آپ نہیں جانتے کہ آپ کے اردگرد نظر آنے والے بظاہر پرسکون اور خوش باش لوگ کس ذہنی دباؤ، پریشانی اور اندرونی ٹوٹ پھوٹ کا شکار ہیں۔ہمارے دوست، رشتہ دار یہاں تک کہ ہمارے ٹین ایج کو پہنچنے والے بچے پڑھائی اور بے پناہ بڑھتے ہوئے مقابلے کی فضاء سے متاثر ہو سکتے ہیں۔
ہمیشہ اپنارویہ مشفقانہ اوررحمدلانہ رکھیے
ذہنی پریشانی کے شکار کسی شخص سے کبھی مت کہیےکہ۔

-تم صرف عبادت یادعا میں دل لگاؤ

-تمہارا اصل مسئلہ تمہارا اپنا رویہ ہے یہ سب پریشانی صرف تمہارےدماغ کی پیداوار ہے

-ہم سب کےساتھ کوئی نہ کوئی مسئلہ ہوتا ہے۔یہ تمہارےاکیلے کے ساتھ نہیں ہے
-جو کچھ تم محسوس کرتے ہو یہ کوئی انوکھا نہیں، ہر ایک کبھی نہ کبھی ایسا محسوس کرتاہے

اسکے برعکس انہیں محبت سےاحساس دلائیں اور بتائیں کہ

- کچھ بھی ہو تم بے حداہم ہو۔تمہاری خوشی اہم ہے

-سب سے پہلےاپنے آپ سےمحبت کرنا اپنے آپ کو اہمیت دینا سیکھو

-کبھی اپنے آپ کو جج نہ کرو۔

My cycle of relationships

OCPD: There are several rules/standards/expectations that you need to follow. If you don't follow it, I'll walk away.

mode changing

BPD: Kenapa dia tak follow rules aku? Dia benci aku ke? Aku punya efforts sikit pun tak dihargai & I'm better off dead.
Interference of inner demon,

Bind: Hahahaha! Kau tengok mana ada orang peduli dengan kau & rules kau itu. You're too naive to believe people will always be there for you because they don't. But, aku ada dan aku rasa dunia ni bukan tempat orang baik macam kau. Let's go to heaven
I'm really scared of humans kerana aku akan kehilangan kawan-kawan setiap hari. Jumlah ini meningkat dari masa ke masa terutama sekali apabila aku gagal untuk mencari ketenteraman abadi. Terlalu banyak kegagalan yang aku hadapi melibatkan hubungan aku dengan manusia.

#SuicideAwareness I very nearly didn’t make it to 2020. I don’t even know how I’m still here. I need to thank those who helped me up when I fell down.This is a thread about how grateful I am for being alive today.
From 2016 to 2019, I was stalked, sexually harassed, threatened and intimidated by a man from my society where my family and I were renting an apartment because it was close to my college. I was pursuing law.
In early 2018, after the man attempted to run me over with his car and later forcibly grabbed my hand and tried to touch me, my mother and I decided to take action. I was afraid but I knew we had to do something. Ignoring him had not worked.

1/ Fatigue in Primary Care

It’s that time of year, many of us (myself included!) feel fatigued 🥱

Fatigue is one of the most common presentations in #PrimaryCare yet can be challenging to investigate & manage 🤔

Here’s a #tweetorial on an approach to fatigue 😴

2/ Intended Learning Outcomes

💡To recognise fatigue red flags

💡To develop a diagnostic approach to fatigue

💡To outline a fatigue management plan for those with no red flags
3/ What is fatigue?

‘A state characterised by a lessened capacity/motivation for work usually accompanied by feeling weary🥱, sleepy😴, or a loss of ambition😔’

Fatigue is the most common unexplained complaint in #PrimaryCare, but remember it’s a symptom, not a diagnosis!

'Meet the depressed' should be trending as an effort to help #EndTheStigma of depression and mental illness in America. I'm ignoring the real reason it's trending in order to share some facts.
'Meet the depressed'
1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mental illness each year
1 in 25 U.S. adults experience serious mental illness each year
1 in 6 U.S. youth aged 6-17 experience a mental health disorder each year
Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among people aged 10-34
'Meet the depressed'

19.1% of U.S. adults experienced mental illness in 2018 (47.6 million people). This represents 1 in 5 adults.

4.6% of U.S. adults experienced serious mental illness in 2018 (11.4 million people). This represents 1 in 25 adults.

Here goes our first thread. Singing goes a long way towards managing our own wellbeing. We breath together, we share words and emotions during in each song. Above all we laugh together. I recommend it. #seashanty #folksong #MentalHealthMatters
We have supported each other through some dark times. When we get together to sing, however we are feeling, the songs demand we take a break from our own heads and move into a shared space. A place where we are not alone.
If you are feeling lost or lonely please consider joining a choir, a shanty group or something that involves shared performances. I know that may be a scary prospect but trust me it could be a lifesaver. #ollysfuture #SuicideAwareness #MentalHealthMatters

#pleaseread Thread: Couldn’t understand why I could not sleep. I then realise that it’s four years ago to the very night that I hit my lowest point. I was in despair, borderline suicidal with no idea what to do or where to go. All because of an abusive relationship.
I was with my bully of an ex. He showed such narcissism that led me to believe that absolutely everything was my fault. I was never good enough. I’d been bullied so much that I’d lost over 20kgs in stress and fear in just over 12 months. I’d become a crumbling wreck.
He told me this night he debated leaving me as he didn’t find me sexy. I was ugly. That I didn’t do it for him anymore, and I believed it was all me. I wasn’t good enough. I was frozen. He still wanted sex but then berated me when I couldn’t do it. Too scared. Leaving me in tears

1. Yesterday was #SuicidePreventionDay. At the start of the day, I didn't know the risk of #suicide among female #healthcare professionals is 2⃣4⃣% higher than
the national average🇬🇧 […]. It's a scary thought.
2. After returning to #medschool and learning of the death of one of our fellow #MedStudents, this #suicide statistic really hits home.

For me #SuicidePreventionDay was a day to reflect on these potentially preventable losses; losses affecting my own family & many others... ⚰️💔
3. Most of us know #MentalHealthMatters, but raising #MentalHealthAwareness isn't always enough. We must all do more to speak up, speak out and check in with others before it's too late for another life...⌛️

👉Suicide is scary, but saving a life is simple: #AskTellSaveALife 🎗️

#URGENT #911 Over the course of the next few weeks, I need twitter to show out for me. My children and I, WE NEED A MIRACLE. We are in a crisis of incredible proportions because of an abusive man and the systems that protect men liIke him.

Please keep reading this #THREAD
I CANNOT fight back alone. I desperately need the help of Twitter. And I dont have much time.

A hearing date has been set for OCTOBER 25th.

This is it. The day it will be decided how much longer my 10 & 12 yrold will suffer abuse, how much longer we'll know that man's torment.
What that means is that I have WEEKS left to get anything, everything I can think of that may help and protect us to the lawyer.

I have been working around the clock for months, fighting desperately to protect my children. I've given everything I have and more of what I don't.

I think guys need to talk about our feelings and mental health way more in an open and honest environment.

Where conversations are had between us rather than at us.

I’m tired of my mental health— as a guy being a talking point and not actually being addressed with other guys.
I would much rather have some of my friends talk to me about their feelings, anxiety or depression then to find them dead one day.
In my opinion part of the problem is that media only talks about mental health after someone— typically a male commits a mass shooting.

When in reality people that are mentally are significantly more likely to be the victims of gun violence including gun suicide.

#ElizabethWarren's bill reminds me of Romney's advice to youths in 4/2012, "Borrow money, if you have to, from your parents. Start a business... [Jimmy John Liautaud] borrowed $20K from his dad..."

The loan was c. 7/82 and was actually $25K.
$25K in 7/82 = $59K in 4/12
In the first half of 2019, the nat'l average #rent increased by 2.6%.…
Warren declined to be interviewed for this story. In May, at request of media, her campaign released a summary of her outside work. As a senatorial candidate, Warren released a shorter version, which omitted her work for Dow Chemical.

You know, I know you’re new to Twitter and all, so I’ll try to be gentle and honest. All kidding and snark aside. Really. I mean it.

Please, please never do this again. You can’t be serious because until a couple of hours ago you didn’t know I existed. That’s not enough time. 1/
2 Plus you’re in Kansas, or so it seems, and I’m not, and I don’t think you know where I am. So the “program” you’d be recommending would have to be online or a hotline and I can’t imagine what would be likely to help, assuming I needed help (about which you didn’t ask). 2/
3 So I’m kind of thinking your “help” post might have been just a jokey debating tactic. But maybe not. You “diagnosed” @NoLore with NPD so heaven knows what you figure I’m suffering from.

Anyway please don’t ever joke about #MentalHealthMatters on Twitter or any other ... 3/

1/ I would like to share my story of my #mentalillness (Bipolar Disorder II) and how I deal with it, to show that mental illness is everywhere, and that someone can have a mental illness and be successful. I hope this story can empower someone and help reduce the stigma.
2/ I am a successful PhD student in Chemistry. I am happy, I have travelled the world, I have lived abroad for a year, I am a varsity Squash athlete, I have a BSc in Biochemistry and a MSc in Chemistry. But my biggest success: doing all this while managing a mental illness.
3/ A few weeks ago, I woke up and it took me over an hour to get out of bed. After a day of achieving little at work, I went straight home. I did not feel like my usual after-work walk, I did not want to play squash, I did not want to read a book. I had no energy.

Confessions of a bipolar professor (1/5): #hypomania sounds like it is a wonderful thing - increased energy fueling creativity and good times! What's not to like? But for me, I'm in the midst of dysmorphic hypomania. And it just plain sucks.

#bipolar #highered #AcademicTwitter
(2/5) my brain, which has been rigorously trained for decades, suddenly believes that 1 + 1 = blue. I know I am not thinking rationally, but my head is also telling me to do all sorts of crazy things!

#bipolar #hypomania #AcademicTwitter
(3/5) brain: let's destroy relationships! Let's yell at everybody and go down in the flames of angry glory! Let's run away and purchase a house in Spain! Let's be the worst version of ourself!

Rational brain: wait a second....

1/ I want to talk about my Mom's passing today. It was Feb 17th of 2014--exactly five years ago today--that she passed.

Escaping today and watching a ballgame was therapeutic for me. Because I last saw her on Valentine's Day, I get very solemn when "the day" comes around.
2/ I got her a bouquet for V-Day and dropped it off at the Nursing Home where she been for the five months before her death. She had spent months in Convalescent Homes twice before; once for a bad fall and once because she nearly chocked to death while eating.
3/ In the choking incident, she coded while in her room. She had been eating her dinner and began to choke; she aspirated a very large bite of chicken and was unconscious when the staff found her. The pulmonary specialist later told us that she was very fortunate to have...

Sad news about the suicide that occured.

We cannot stress enough the importance of our mental health & the almost zero effort by the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders such as govt & civil agencies to raise awareness about this crippling disease, provide treatment & counselling and curb stigma surrounding it.

We are glad you're feeling better now and you were able to seek and find help to get you there. Again thank you for opening up about such a sensitive topic and doing so in a relatable way that can be easily understood. #ThursdayThoughts #ThursdayMotivation #MentalHealthMatters
Mental health issues is no respecter of persons regardless of who or what we are and millions of Nigerians suffer this harsh reality every single day. Lack of knowledge, information and resources make it a million times worse. #ThursdayThoughts #MentalHealthMatters #WakeUpNigeria
And being a deeply religious nation is a contributing factor for people running from pillar to post, from one church or pastor to one baba or spiritualist, seeking for help against one village person or demon somewhere. #ThursdayThoughts #MentalHealthMatters
