A desire to pick myself up, 'carry on', focus on future goals; balanced/contrasted with the need to stop the denial; accept the reality of just how serious things have been. ARE. STILL.
My discharge letter uses the words 'fatal'.

2 Mental Health Act Assessments in 7 days.
4 nights in an acute general hospital. For treatment.
*They* can't all be wrong. Exaggerating. Coercive. Risk averse.
*I* have to take responsibility for causing concern.
Responsibility but not blame.
*I* have had to revisit my
Safety plan; again and again and again. And right now that means 'family supervision'. But in my own home. Where I want to be. Where I am safer. At the moment: change is constant and I must also acknowledge that.
And I am still p*ssed off at the way the #MHAA was undertaken

.@blakehounshell’s death by suicide after battling depression spotlights broader issues: as a culture, we stigmatize #mentalillness + laud stoicism (or #toxicmasculinity?). #RIPBlakeHounshell

At 30 mins in, you’ll hear testimony about something called an “immediate suspension order”. This is the admin tool that DEA used to take away Dr Bockoff’s DEA license & take his assets, w/o having to file charges. #DEACenteredCare #Suicide
And this is the same hearing that billionaire law-firm attorneys used as part of their cases. THIS shows how the #LitigationNarrative has had and is still having a direct, deadly effect on patients’ ability to access and maintain medical care related to rx opioids.

L'Ukraine va augmenter les frais de transit du pétrole russe vers l'UE - Transneft
L'Ukraine va augmenter les frais de transit pour le pétrole russe acheminé par l'oléoduc Druzhba à travers son territoire vers l'UE le 1er janvier, a annoncé l'exportateur de pétrole russe Transneft sur son site web lundi.
On s'attend à ce que Kiev augmente les tarifs pour le transport du brut vers la Hongrie et la Slovaquie de 2,10 € par tonne pour atteindre 13,60 € (13,90 $), ce qui portera la hausse totale à 18,3 %.

my magazines were never viable on kindle anyway but I pulled all my ebooks from amazon early (several years ago) because I maintained statistics that showed I made pennies on amazon compared to a single direct sale, which is why I focus on direct sales now
kindle was NEVER going to be the future, amazon is NEVER going to be the solution, this was ALWAYS going to happen so long as any platform attempts a monopoly—the sooner we build alternatives and move on, the better
on amazon, one self-published ebook sale would net me $0.12, if I was lucky

meanwhile, this week I sold one of my paperbacks, which retails for $15, for $60, because I have “pay what you want” enabled on my own platform that people trust more than amazon

Info utile du jour en #psychiatrie: le #suicide, comment le prévenir chez un proche ?
Découvrez et partagez le plus possible ce thread concret, accessible et construit pour vous tous sur ce thème essentiel de santé publique! 1/15 ⬇️
Plus de 9000 décès et 200.000 tentatives de suicide par an en France, 2eme cause de mortalité des 15-24 ans et fléau chez les plus de 75 ans. Ces chiffres, terribles, montrent l’ampleur du phénomène et la nécessité de sa prévention 2/15
Vous allez peut-être me dire que le suicide, on ne peut rien y faire, que c’est un choix personnel, imprévisible ou que seuls les professionnels peuvent faire quelque chose. Sachez que c’est faux, le taux a diminué de près de 33,5% entre 2000 et 2016. On peut tous contribuer!3/15

This mornings rant is for ppl that keep losing ppl.

Or, ppl that keep losing ppl & there never seems to be time to process all the death, or for the people that constantly live in grief since they were young cause people are always dying.

And for Olivia E. #mourning #death
Olivia passed away the other day. Some sent me a screen shot on a story about someone saying goodbye. Apparently it happened last week.

Like all of us I rush to her social media “no way” I think. Looking for an obituary cause we live far from home now. #Minneapolis
My mind floods - which isn’t about Olivia - it’s about losing many friends and chosen family to these common killers 1) fetanyl 2) suicide 3) homicide.

My bias tells me it’s surely 1 of the 3. B/c I’ve lost more ppl to the top 2 - around 15-20 to be exact. #suicide #fetanyl

1/ TW: Suicide

September is #WomeninMedicine and #SuicidePreventionAwarenessMonth. Female physicians continue to have a significantly higher suicide completion rate than the general population.

@AMWADoctors @WIMSummit @500WIM @AMWAStudents @AmerAcadPeds @acgme @APPDconnect
2/ One of the first steps toward ⬇️this is eliminating the #shame culture in medicine that keeps so many people suffering in silence when they experience #depression.
3/ Last month, I shared my story of #depression and passive thoughts of suicide during my Grand Rounds. I expected people to relate, but I didn't expect a trainee to share that their #WomeninMedicine trainee friend had died by suicide two days earlier.

🧵Ever wonder what therapists use for #Suicide prevention? We asked: therapists use current best practices (~90%) BUT ~40% of clinicians endorse contracts for safety, no-harm contracts, &/or no-suicide contracts (not good!) #MentalHealthAwareness link👇 1/7 #psychtwitter
We asked mental health (MH) clinicians & MH allies (teachers, #FirstResponders, peer support) what Best Practices (Crisis Response Planning & Safety Plan) & Contraindicated Practices (contract 4 safety, no-harm contract, &/or no-suicide contract) they use. 2/7
Mental health allies endorsed the Best Practices & Contraindicated Practices at lower rates than mental health clinicians. This leaves room for more training on best practices with a focus on removing interventions that don’t help. #PeerToPeer #PeerSupport 3/7

#climatechange🌍🌡 is the greatest threat to human #health👩⚕️. 
Here are 5 ways climate change is impacting our health and how the future could look like if no action is taken. 
A 🧵. 1/11
#climatechange #globalwarming #savetheplanet #climate #climatecrisis #climatechangeisreal
1. Extreme Heat🌡: Heat waves are deadly⚰. One study attributed more than 1/3 of heat-related deaths to climate change. Future warming could result in an additional 2K - 10K deaths/year in each of 209 U.S. cities. 2/11
Heart attacks & strokes can result from prolonged exposure to heat. The heart has to work harder to pump blood and minerals are lost through sweat. Extreme heat can also worsen pre-existing conditions such as kidney damage, especially for vulnerable populations such as 👴👵. 3/11

Henry de Bracton’s (#Bracton) compilation of the English (Canon) Law on #SUICIDE, in the original Latin and modern English. Bracton was a 13th century English Catholic Archdeacon, itinerant judge and legal commentator. His opus magnum, “De Legibus Et Consuetudinibus (1/26)
Anglilae”, is often cited by conservatives as representative of the origins of British and English common law. As you shall see, here, below, the work (and the contemporaneous law) was heavily influenced by Bracton’s Catholic faith. YOU be the judge of that!
The comments interposed by the editor, Woodbine, are indicated in {}. Note that Latin makes heavy use of the “subjunctive”, something long since disused in English and difficult to properly translate, other than in the third person: If the translation reads somewhat (3/26)

1/🧵 Long COVID Brain Science: 🧠

For ~100M suffering 🌎, let’s use data to combat myths & #Misinformation

COVID is biologically dangerous long after virus is gone

#LongCOVID affects our….

📍Olfactory & Limbic Systems
📍 Interferon Autoimmunity
📍PET scans

How? Image
2/ First, Epidemiological comparisons…


Survivors of viral infxns like #Flu don’t complain of 200 long-term symptoms & ~90% ongoing mood disorders.

#LongCOVID pts do.

Flu kills 0.5M/year vs COVID has killed 10X that (5M) in just 2 years.
3/ Consider this:

A study of 150k COVID survivors, hospitalized & not.

COVID survivors had 10-15X ‼️higher risk of considering #suicide at 1 year than 11M control patients.

This is horrifying, yet people still deny #LongCOVID’s importance.

WHY? ImageImageImage
