The implication of the wider spread of #DIYAPS on out-of-pocket expenses for people with #T1D- Timothée Froment on the conomic burden associated with #diabetes technologies

The amount of out-of-pocket expenses for people with #T1D depends on the limited health coverage of #diabetes technologies & supplies in most countries

For @tadorna, #Covid19 made him feel like a #patient - again. We should not ever let #diabetes define us. It made him feel vulnerable because of this whole lot of uncertainties. Lack of #insulin and supplies was a worry.

How many Employers result in Permenant Job Layoffs because they can't commit to hours...

A #BasicIncome is also a means to protect these workers from loosing Weeks to Months of Income before they qualify for benefits. It's FASTER than EI. It's FASTER than Welfare.
How many mothers need to work 2 or 3 jobs just to pay the rent and bills? Sacrificing #FamilyQualityTime is not helping our society increase benefits of life by not having enough time for family outings, and experiences that can benefit creativity in the workplace.

One of the biggest barriers for changing #ODSPoverty as well as all issues facing disabled Canadians / Canadians with disabilities is media bias.

I have been trying to engage Canadian media for reasons they do not call out ableism or ableists.

1/5
I filed a complaint with @CBCOmbud which was answered by @hambletp with @brodiefenlon attached to the replies.

In the official reply by @CBCNews it explains they they did not view @fordnation 's comments on live TV as ableism...

2/5
They then explain they only report on movements with momentum and did not feel there was enough momentum for disabled issues to be reported.

As well as saying they only report when there is outcry, but then backtracked when I pointed out the outcry that has happened.

I’m level 37 ✨✨✨
Celebrating that I’ve been keeping myself alive - and well - for the last 37 years living with type 1. This month marks my #Diaversay. As I don’t know the exact day of my #diagnosis - it was at the beginning of the summer break - I have decided it's July 7 🎉 Image
I had been having the usual symptoms for some time before I arrived at my grand parents for the holidays: weight loss, unquenchable thirst, constant peeing. My grandma realised something was wrong and took me to the GP.

#type1diabetes #invisibleillness #diagnosis
I thought I’d share a throwback picture to remind me how far I’ve come with living with #T1D for 30+ yrs: rigid treatments in the 1980s, denial in my teen yrs, hiding to inject my life saving #insulin, 1st pump in 2009, 1st #CGM when I was pregnant in 2010, & looping last yr 🟢 Image

Having studied several articles as part of the #PeriodsandPatrakars campaign, we have come upon a pattern in the reportage around menstruation in India. This #Thread hopes to evoke and sensitize stakeholders to undertake measures to responsibly report on menstruation.
There are 2 main categories of improvements the media can make:
A.Use Inclusive Language and Evidence Base
B.Expanding the Range of Issues Covered
A.1) Inclusive Positive Language

Across several articles reviewed, it was noticed that when talking about menstruation, the subjects are always referred to as a binary word ‘woman’ rather than its more inclusive alternative ‘menstruators’.

THE BASIC INCOME THREAD:

I bet the government never thought about these when debating about Basic Income... what if until June 2021 #UBI had happened:

#BasicIncome #Canada #WhatIf #WhyDidntWeThinkofThis #OnlyInCanada
Most families would be able to stay afloat without the cost of borrowing, and by immediate stability it relieved the stress. Domestic Violence can be directly related to Financial Insecurity which increases the risk of increased Health Care costs and Justice system implications
Most families that have jobs if they did qualify for #BasicIncome probably wouldn't qualify in year 2. Especially if it was taxable income. However, the investment in the individual in one year can be enough to secure employment or higher education.

Thread: Comparing the emergency response for vulnerable folks from British Columbia vs Ontario.

I want you to read this thread, then try to tell me that Ford is doing a "good job" for vulnerable Ontarians.

First, let's compare the provincial crisis response to homeless...
In Ontario, they still have the Safe Streets Act which police enforce. This act, if continued to be enforced, will cost lives of homeless people due to them needing to go to more dangerous lengths to not be seen by the police. theconversation.com/ontarios-safe-…
In Ontaro, social programs have been cut, the foodbank is limited to 1 trip per month, ppl are still expected to live on the streets. They opened a respite centre in Ottawa to shower, not to stay at. cbc.ca/news/canada/ot…

Health Minister @GregHuntMP & NDIS Minister @stuartrobertmp must urgently convene a meeting of state & territory health & disability ministers, disability orgs & @NDIS to outline clearly what measures being taken to ensure that #pwd not disproportionately impacted by #COVID19
I am extremely concerned at the apparent failure of the government to properly include disabled people in its #COVID19 planning, leaving the disability community unnecessarily exposed #AusPol
There has been no coordinated approach from the federal government into the impact of #COVID19 on disabled people and, frankly, a disturbing attitude of buck-passing in the context of wider economic concerns #AusPol
