#Food #addiction #recovery is about much more than the food.
We have been ‘using’ food as drug to make us feel better. Sugars, grains and processed foods give our brains
Dopamine
Oxytocin
Serotonin
Endorphins
in unnatural amounts
The ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters.
A thread
1/8
If we don’t learn new ways to balance these brain chemicals naturally we are more likely to relapse at times of temptation, stress, loneliness, boredom or sadness. This means building some new habits.

How will you get your daily DOSE? ⬇️

DOPAMINE
The neurotransmitter of motivation, reward & MORE. Drives cravings. We can get dopamine from accomplishing tasks, exercise & doing unpleasant things like a cold plunge! Listen to Anna Lembke on the food junkies or read her book for more info. foodjunkiespodcast.com/episodes/episo…

1/🧵 Update on Long COVID Prevention‼️

Do meds & vaccines ⬇️ #LongCOVID risk?

1st meet @pamelarbishop, a scientist in forced early retirement due to LC:

“I oscillate between fierce determination to get better & abject horror at the daily destruction of my body."

read on…
2/ A case-control study of 9k unhospitalized COVID pts treated w Paxlovid btwn March & June 2022 versus 47k patients w no antiviral or antibody treatment.

All >= 1 risk factor for hospitalization.

The results are surprising if you think about it.

Why?
bit.ly/3WKmo1V
3/ It’s NOT a randomized trial, so we don’t know why people did or didn’t get Paxlovid.

In practice, we givemeds more aggressively (or want them ourselves) if we’re sicker.

So you might think those who didn’t take Pax would be less sick & do better. That’s not what was found…

Do you know that 2020 and 2022 are the two worst years for #poverty reduction since at least 1990? Why?

The pandemic dealt the largest setback to global-poverty reduction efforts. (1/4)
The #income losses of the world’s poorest were twice as high as the world’s richest in 2020.

The poorest also faced large setbacks in #health and #education, with devastating consequences, including premature mortality, and pronounced learning losses. (2/4)
Extreme #poverty is concentrated in parts of the world where it will be hardest to eradicate:
- in Sub-Saharan Africa,
- conflict-affected areas,
- and in rural areas. (3/4)

Peace yall, 

Some comrades and I are hosting an AA meeting every Wednesday for Black, Indigenous, and people of Color (BIPOC) who want to stop drinking and/or drugging. Details for the meeting are in the graphics below. ImageImageImage
This meeting will be a place to read and discuss the BIPOC, working-class, and leftist roots of the 12 steps and push back against conservative and neoliberal traditions that claim to be the only history of AA and the steps.
Left-wing and right-wing cultural, spiritual, and behavioral science traditions went back and forth to create AA and the 12 step programs.

It took my legs a few minutes to warm up this morning, but glad to report that long morning walks remain easy, in contrast to later in the day. #Totnes is waking up beautifully ☀️
5 miles walked this morning, with no adverse effects. Then strimmed & mowed a lawn. Great to not be worried about my heart and lungs as I got a real workout from the gardening. However, I'm mindful of the warnings of some with #LongCovid that I should continue to pace myself.

1/🧵🎥 How do “Dominoes of life” fall in critical illness⁉️

A pt arrives awake & talking but vomiting. In just 8 hrs he nearly dies of sepsis 🤯

Lung & kidney failure, heart attack, coma.

How can this happen & can we save him?

This🧵can help us understand the “arc of illness”
2/ His disease is Ascending Cholangitis

A gall stone lands in his common bile duct

📍Pain & vomiting
📍He’s admitted to the ICU
📍GI performs an ERCP to place a stent, bypass the stone, drain pus & control the source of sepsis
📍Add fluids & antibiotics
📍But he gets worse
Why?
3/ We bypassed the septic source (stone) & drain the pus, but dominoes were already falling.

Bacteria had gotten into his blood.

Too much inflammation & capillary blood clotting occurred, just like in COVID.

What happens when “cellular” dominoes start to fall uncontrollably?

Let's talk about #Tether - THREAD

Start with ew fun facts from their rules for using the #Tether services 🤡

Thread 🧵⬇️
[1/x]

In Tether's terms of service we can find information that #Tether doesn't have to buy back $USDT tokens, should anyone wish to exchange them back into $USD, if it does not want to.
[2/x]
The terms state that Tether reserves the right to delay the redemption of tokens at a time if such a delay is necessary due to lack of #liquidity, unavailability, or loss of any reserves held by Tether to support USDT Tokens.

Finishing this book presents a major milestone in my life. You see, approximately 6.5 years ago I was found in a pool of my own blood in a parking lot. I ended up in the ICU with a traumatic brain injury. Here’s what I did to reclaim my cognitive function - a 🧵 1/n
The thing about brushes with death (my particular TBI has a ~90% mortality rate) is that they have a powerful clarifying function. Some of the initial thoughts I had was that I :
a - wanted to achieve fluency in French
b - wanted to really embrace Infosec

There was a small problem though. I was dumber than a bag of hammers. After about six months of recovery - I could barely read a children’s book. It’s not that I didn’t know the words. It’s that they all came at me at once.

Exactly 7 years ago, I spent #StrokeAwarenessDay undergoing emergency #thrombectomy for #basilar artery occlusion. #BAO

Today, I'm still in awe and celebrating how #modern #medicine saved me from locked-in syndrome and enabled me to live a normal life, against all odds.

1/ 🧵
2/ So far, I have avoided sharing this information as part of my professional life, fearing it would somehow disqualify me as a credible clinician-scientist. Finally, I realize that the experience only strengthened my resolve to give future patients the second chance I was given.
3/ What happened in brief:

I was a healthy, 25yo medical student, all excited to have finished the first 10K run of my life not even 5 hours before my family reacted #FAST and called 911.

Almost relapsed on 🥃 when passed over by the Columbus, OH @DeptVetAffairs along with other protected #Veterans. A Civilian Social Work Director bypassed all Veteran Interns serving there for 12 months for another Civilian hire. Medical Marijuana saved my life @lastprisonerprj
This was after surviving 2 deployments in Iraq, an RPG blast, being shot at through a door I was breaching and using Veteran benefits to put myself through school receiving my MSW. The VA still let a qualified and disabled veteran social worker fall through the cracks.
I decided to join National Youth Advocate Program and provided thousands of hours of assessment, therapy, resources and aftercare services impacted by sexual, physical, emotional and verbal trauma. This triggered my PTSD bad, but I fought through it to be there with my clients.

It has been an honour to walk alongside my friend & colleague of 21 years @BinitaKane & her daughter Jasmin on their courageous & inspiring journey. #LongCovid in adults children is real & serious. There are treatments available- sadly only for a fortunate few #TeamClots 1/n
(Everything I say is with the express permission of @BinitaKane). Jasmin is not the only child with #LongCovid who has been shown to have microclots & hyperactivated platelets. They are a consistent finding in kids & adults who have travelled for treatment to Germany & SA 2/n
Globally 100m are affected by this vile illness. In the U.K. alone this figure is estimated to be 1.8m, with 2/3rds reporting an adverse impact on their daily activities. 1% of primary & 2.7% of secondary school children fulfilled the criteria for #LongCovidKids 3/n

Spent more time in the garden today. Insect populations are booming! A bit of sunshine really helps to lift the spirits.

Had a run of 3 good days, but just tried doing *some* of the things my lungs had allowed me to do over the weekend & over-did it by fixing the ball-cock in the toilet cistern! Lowered my guard; lungs are tight again (first time in 10 days) & I'm lightheaded. #PulmonaryEmbolism

1/🧵 Beauty in simplicity
 
For too long in life, I thought success was about climbing in the 🌎’s eyes…higher, better, farther. My physician wife & I are “new parents” to my 58 y/o brother w #DownSyndrome & he’s giving me all kinds of new understanding of what matters.

#COVID
2/ When I come home, Greg is usually hiding from me, like you see here. He thinks so beautifully, “How can I make someone else #happy in the small things in life?”

Here he is hiding in plane sight next to our dog Butter. Look at that grin!

#Recovery
3/ Hide and Seek: He taught me that if he can’t see me, I can’t see him!

At first that seems nutty, but in truth, for me to enter “into #relationship” w you, we do need to SEE EACH OTHER, right?

So who’s teaching who here?!

Thrilled to finally share the pre-print of our study in which we propose a mechanism underlying progression to severe #COVID19 medrxiv.org/content/10.110… Here is our tweetorial! A🧵 (1/9)
Hugely important landmark studies by @VirusesImmunity, @EJohnWherry, @SetteLab, @ScottBudinger and others have proposed that immune system dysregulation is implicated in disease progression and severity. (2/9)
To look for a mechanism of immune dysregulation, we performed multiparameter immune monitoring in a tightly controlled cohort of 128 COVID–19 patients, and used the ratio of SpO2:FiO2 as a dynamic and physiologic measure of disease severity. (3/9) Image
