Before this year has ended, I'll be 70 years old. I'm starting to feel my age.

When I hear this song:

I think: "Lying down again".

When I hear this:

I think: "Aching all over!"
I look at the prospect of #DyingOfOldAge and I wonder, #IsThereAnAlternative?

I'm too much of a coward to consider #suicide, in any conventional sense of the world.

I will absolutely not surrender myself to Euthanasia, after all, what's the Youth in Asia ever done for me? !!!
I AM #ALittleBitKinky. I often wonder, couldn't I find a #dominatrix with #AVeryShortFuse, #IrritateTheHellOutOfHer and #GoOutWithABangNotAWhimper?

So I'm looking around me for #PotentialPartnersInCrime.

I had no control over how #ICameIntoTheWorld

Can I control how I leave?

@TomUnabombadil @cheekyosaurus Hi Tom

I'm Ho-oHm

How many seconds did you wait to post that after I'd just told you I was dashing out

@TomUnabombadil @cheekyosaurus The #Woke tried to get Prof #JordanPeterson cancelled for refusing, not to use preferred pronouns, which he is happy to do for individuals, but for refusing to accept legally enforced PC speech

They tried but failed to get him fired

As he had tenure

The whole point of which..
@TomUnabombadil @cheekyosaurus Tried to get #JordanPeterson cancelled & fired but failed as had tenure

Whole point of which is to ensure academics had freedom to raise controversial issues

But got all his funding cut so stopping his research

(Which is why he's had to do speaking tours to raise funding!😱🤦‍♂️)

THREAD: Everything is connected.

And so many of our modern societal problems & issues stem from disconnection.

This thread is about both connections b/w socio-cultural issues (connecting the dots) & also about connections between people. Those 2 things are connected.

What we have here is human disconnectedness caused - in part - or at least greatly contributed to - by technological (over)connectedness. Another big contributing factor, I believe, is our traditional gender norms around #masculinity.

Think about the phenomenon of employer “ghosting” during an interview process when they aren’t giving a candidate the job. I’ve learned it is quite common these days to not let that person know. You just stop communicating.

I haven't seen the SLP filed by the TN govt. But now that I have gone through the order by Justice GR Swaminathan, I am sharing some thoughts here about the order itself - well, because it's a free country. #thanjavur #ariyalur #student #suicide.

No one doubts that conversion takes place in TN. It is not illegal. In fact it is a fundamental right to propagate one's religion as per Constitution. It is only forced conversion which is illegal. (2/n)
Justice GRS seems to ignore these when he quotes the Bible, movies and even refers to a magazine article to say conversion takes place. Yes, we know. But what if, as you did, petitioners refer to movies to bolster their arguments since they contain 'kernels of truth'? (3/n)

#Suicide by Clinic-Referred #Transgender #Adolescents in the United Kingdom. Great piece here urging us to reflect upon & think about, if evidence based #science is still your thing. Biggs (2022) conclusion asks us to question #medical responsibility.…
How do we know if we are acting responsibly when we are offering ‘information’? What information are we offering? What if that information is on risk for #selfharm & #suicide? As a part of our daily #dutyofcare part of the #safeguarding process?
What about if that information is relied upon when we obtain parental consent for intervention with #children & #adolescents? What if that information isn’t true, is inaccurate, exaggerated, inflated, distorted? #science

#Medium #Mediumship, was reading an old #Tufts@TuftsDaily⁩ article from 2008 interviewing ⁦@jessicaalba⁩ about her film #TheEye, watched the trailer:
you do see how see people died, though, if contacted by the deceased, they share their personality, images of what is relevant, what they think is, which can be difficult; I take #antidepressants, and, am #healing myself from illness, some #trauma, too, and, was seeing more,

As mentioned earlier, this a 10 point thread about #SelfHarm and #Suicide.

It comes with a #TriggerWarning.

I will be using my own experience to TRY and educate and encourage reflection, particularly in those who work in #mentalhealth or encounter
individuals who may self harm.

Those with lived experience may find it unhelpful and may want to not to read it.

So here goes...

1) Self harm can take many forms; and one person can use multiple across their life span. I have engaged in at least 7 different behaviours
from my teenage years up until now.

2) Just as the method can change so can the function. 15/16 year old me self harmed for punishment - the belief that I had been the reason for my parents separation. I have self harmed in order to feel in control; to release a build up

Today is 100 days since I was first admitted to hospital after taking a mixed overdose. I won't elaborate further.
Since then I have had 3 admissions; 2 to general wards and 1 to a #mentalhealth unit. I spent time as an informal patient and also detained under Section 3 1/21
I was under #Crisis services until last week...
Today is also the first night in 99 that I am spending alone, so to occupy myself and acknowledge the 'milestone', I thought I would reflect on 10 things that I have learnt in that time...
This comes with trigger warnings 2/21
As I will be speaking about #SelfHarm and #Suicide. I also apologise in advance for any poor grammer - I am typing this out on my phone, unable to use a key board.
These are just my own experiences/thoughts/opinions - they are not meant to be generalised. Nor are they based 3/21

This 👇👇👇 (h/t @joemd)

Also, at midcareer female success is threatening to men our age AND to younger men who rely on patriarchal patronage systems. Women, overpoliced by the system, then, yes, are tougher bosses AND we *do* tend to adhere more closely to ethics.

I do do all:
On #MedTwitter there is a pattern of “callouts”, yes vs all genders & ages, but also pattern of misogyny and misogynoir. It happens towards nurses & doctors alike. One of the reasons I connected with @ShrimpBrokkoli is because I saw a yt male resident ridiculing her online.
I saw that behavior being taught by NON-clinical faculty & that REALLY crossed a line.
If you are a woman + nurse + frontline + Black/WOC, you already live with so much violence towards you. Added online made up drama from a trainee vs nurse?
No, no, & no.…

This is what targeted racial harassment looks like: nitpicking things like “smiled” or “wore clothes like a celebrity, as a celebrity” or “bought cookware.” It is part of the “gold digger” narrative.
This is common in #healthcare#professionalism” where there is hazing & bullying by racist &/or classist made up non-rules lacking standards…yet people are called “breaking the rules.”

It’s exactly how bullies operate: double standards, mislabel/smear, exclude, marginalize.
In the U.K., “BAME” includes the formerly colonized, thus making race constructs or power different from U.S. as latter had race-based chattel slavery.

Thing is, those formerly colonized have many who have internalized self hate & racism.…

#suicide among #students in #highered.
Then TRY, just TRY, to explain to me why #masking/#distancing/#quarantine/#remoteschool are necessary
It's not just the littlest ones, who don't even know what it means to go to school without a #mask
It's not just the elementary students, who aren't growing or developing normally
It's not just the middle school kids. This is when they're supposed to be stretching their wings. It's also the last chance to catch academic issues before high school
It's not just high school students, who are supposed to be getting ready to launch
Or college students, striking out on their own for the first time.

It's Every. Single. One. of them
It's time, even with #omicron, to be done with rules and mandates.
Let our kids be kids

“Model minorities” chase impossible standards? Then let’s try to match of achievement level set by Black women

…who accomplish so much while mislabeled, hated, un-/underpaid, killed, losing their children to violence of others’ fear/anti-Blackness…
This is NOT the standard:

The words we use can derail our best efforts ... or lead to productive partnerships and positive change.

It was a joy to collaborate with @JillHF_AFSP @fatimah_loren @PincusRob @meganranney on this @AMJPublicHealth paper after our webinar discussion

We offer suggestions on how to talk about #firearms, #suicide, and #communityviolence ... we hope it's a useful starting point

It's critical to engage affected communities - including firearm owners - and attention to language may help build trust and partnership
Similarly, #SuicidePrevention needs to engage those with lived experience - and language is equally important. We offer a few examples (h/t to excellent existing resources, e.g.

People with intractable pain are more likely to need LTOT. Things like CBT are NOT going to work and haven't worked for these people and most of them have already tried everything else. Why are we spending billions on research without acknowledging this monumental difference? 🧵
People don't understand that pain is a nuanced topic. There are people who haven't developed chronic pain yet, those with chronic pain at the beginning or middle of their journey, and then there are intractable pain patients. Why isn't research catching onto this?
There should be very structured research strategies taking these differences into account. Maybe @NIH and @PCORI can explain why these differences are not being acknowledged. We need research on LTOT too and what is comparative effectiveness research without a comparison?

Q2 From MJ (@manijadegarcia): It seems uncommon to associate mental health struggles w/ disability. I do see discussions of this during #DEHEM21, which I feel hopeful about.

Academic culture is ULTRA VIOLENT & TOXIC towards people with mental health struggles.


(@manijadegarcia) I am in a #ClinicalPsychology PhD program & have found that clinical psychologists are among the MOST violent & most likely to stigmatize #MentalIllness, mostly due to shame from avoiding confronting their own struggles & training in Western medical models.

(@manijadegarcia) Applicants/trainees in clinical psychology are—as a rule— told NOT to discuss their mental health & are punished for disclosing.

This culture mixes in ugly ways with other core -isms in clinical psychology, like racism.

This was 2 months after high school graduation. My classmate was missing for 7 months. The devastation & grief were immense after the unexpected loss. We were naïve teenagers facing overwhelming sadness. Eventually her death was ruled a #suicide. #ph260720
In 2016, while living with my best friend, I briefly had a #suicidal roommate. The aftermath of my classmate’s death inspired me to study suicide, but I was not prepared to be the caretaker to a loved one in her time of crisis. #ph260720
About me: I choose #suicidology because I have seen the effects of suicide on families & communities. I am a sociological suicidologist turned #publichealth researcher. Learning from #livedexperiences and using #qualitativemethods in #suicideresearch is important to me. #ph260720

For #WorldMentalHealthDay I would like to draw attention to the crisis of incarceration of those with serious mental illnesses. More than 1/4 of men and well over half of women in #prison are diagnosed with some form of mental illness. This represents a huge societal failure. /1
Decades ago, people with #mentalillness whose families couldn't afford adequate treatment were warehoused in institutions in terrible conditions. Litigation forced them to close. They were supposed to be replaced with community based resources so people could get help at home. /2
As is typical in the US, these vital resources never materialized and many thousands of people with serious mental health needs were left with nowhere to turn. Over time, their #mentalillness was criminalized, and prisons became their new warehouses.… /3

Today is #WorldSuicidePreventionDay 

#Suicide is a global public health issue.
All ages, sexes and regions of the world are affected.

There is a lot we can do to prevent suicide
Do you know someone who may be considering #suicide?
Reach out. Offer help.
Let them know you care.


1 in 100 deaths is by #suicide.

Every year, more people die as a result of suicide than HIV, malaria or breast cancer - or war and homicide.
