4 days since I was diagnosed with a kidney stone stuck in my ureter and I have experienced such a wide range of responses from health professionals. In many ways I wish a vet was in charge of my care. A thread:
1/ turned up at a&e on Sunday morning in agonising pain which started at 6:30am. The triage nurse I saw told me “you can stop crying now” and walked off leaving me without pain relief. Eventually after begging I received a small dose of oral codeine…
2/ proceeded to spend the next 3-4 hours crying and unable to sit still in the waiting room due to renal colic I eventually saw a lovely doctor who thought it was unlikely I had a stone on account of me being a 24yo female, but 10 minutes later when the next wave of uncontrolled

While the past couple of yrs hav undoubtedly been challenging for physicians & everyone in healthcare; it seems the acute on chronic overwhelm and toxic stress is what has led to significant amounts of moral injury, burnout, and for some of us trauma.
As a result dissatisfaction is high and so is attrition. We are struggling right now—healthcare is struggling.

But we can do this better. I know we can, and I know this personally as I found myself with severe #burnout not too long, suffering from #Morallnjury & #Trauma.
Much of my ability to recover was due to my learning with #Lodestar helping to develop more insight into trauma mitigation & trauma responsiveness. The work has been both life & perspective shifting, giving me a renewed commitment to rebuild an equitable healthcare system.

Autism trans 🧵: If your child is high functioning #autistic & just coming out as 'trans': 1. This is likely trauma based & autism based 2. They have been preyed upon or groomed because of their #autism What I mean by this is #autistic children teens or adults are socially
Naive & fullibe Due to their #autistic brain wiring. They do NOT 'see' or understand the bad 'intentions' of others. This gets them into all manner of troubles across the lifetime. They are highly vulnerable & need safeguarding due to their naivety #innocent #groomed #deceived
The way their brain is uniquely wired means they must have healthy responsible role models & mentors in their lives otherwise they are easily manipulated, led astray, taken advantage of, deceived, gaslit & worse. It does matter how high their cognitive IQ is #trauma #PTSD

🔶 Le gaslighting désigne une forme d'abus mental dans lequel un individu manipule la réalité pour faire douter sa victime de ses perceptions et de sa santé mentale. C'est une façon de priver la victime de gaslighting de libre-arbitre.

Liebes @FluxFM-Team,
wir möchten euch gerne auf die Gefahren bezüglich eurer Berichterstattung zum Thema Prostitution hinweisen. Wir sind die Berliner Ortsgruppe des Vereins @SISTERS - für den Ausstieg aus der Prostitution! e.V.u. unterstützen Frauen unter anderem dabei aus
d. Prostitution auszusteigen. Somit kommen wir oft mit Frauen in Kontakt,die ihren Einstieg in das „Business“ bereuen u. erschrocken sind was sie vor ihrem Einstieg für ein falsches Bild v. der Prostitution hatten. Das „Bereuen klingt“ sehr soft. Fakt ist, dass 68 % d.Frauen
durch die Zeit in d. Prostitution Kriterien einer Posttraumatischen Belastungsstörung erfüllen, dessen Ausprägung vergleichbar mit Kriegsveteranen o. Folteropfern ist (wir reden hier v. Frauen,die sich aus eigenen Stücken dafür entschieden haben). Zudem zeigen Studien, dass

@PhillyP3351 @autismspeaks “I had to earn it by interrupting less than a certain number of times. I was so excited.  
We used my love of figurines to help motivate me to learn and become more conscious of my own interrupting”

That is not motivation, but conditioning. Skinner developed that with lab rats.
@PhillyP3351 @autismspeaks “I’m allowed to wait using ….coping strategies and tools, and even hold small toys in my hand. It is considered a success if I wait a certain amount of time without complaining.”

“Allowed to” self Reg?!?!

Success is making others happy, not how you feel.
@PhillyP3351 @autismspeaks “It is done in an effort to make sure that I have the best future possible”

Intent is v different than what is important for an autistic adult life.

Why learn from a person supervised by someone trained only in behaviour mod, and not an autistic org? eg…

The more I’ve learned about #neuroscience and #trauma,

the more I’ve realized that the lies we’re told by society about #individualism, rationalism and human agency/choice have DEEPLY confused us about

why we suffer and how we heal.

A quick 🧵
.We desperately want to believe that we make our own choices based on our own logic.

But #neuroscience is teaching us that our decision-making is SIGNIFICANTLY determined by our affective/emotional state and the ways we’ve been socialized over time.

.Our affective/emotional states are deeply impacted by how relationally safe we feel within our social context up to and in a given moment.

In other words, the extent to which we feel physically safe and socially accepted affects what we CHOOSE and what we DO.

„Und meint eigentlich irgendjemand, ein Freier würde vergessen, dass er gerade über eine Frau drübergerutscht ist, von der er nicht wissen kann, ob sie wollte, oder bei der er sehen konnte, dass sie NICHT wollte, und er hat es trotzdem getan?
Warum sollte diese erlernte Regel dann nicht auch für andere Frauen gelten? Warum sollte man sie nicht auch auf andere #Frauen anwenden?

Ja. #Prostitution ist #Gewalt. Und das #Stigma sorgt dafür, dass wir nicht darüber sprechen. Weil wir uns schämen sollen.
Aber es ist nicht das #Stigma,das uns tötet, es sind die #Freier,es ist die Prostitution.“

Hey #Afghanistan 🇦🇫 Diaspora Twitter...

Especially Pashtun and Tajik diaspora Twitter...

Let's talk about two things today: #trauma and #racism.

I'm writing this thread out of love. I swear🧡. It's about YOU. I really hope you would read this for your OWN sake. 1/n
Let's start with #Trauma:

You, yourself, my diaspora friend from #Afghanistan, have trauma just from being from there.

I know.

It's hard to believe. You are thousands of miles away. You weren't even born there. Maybe you don't even identify as it... but you have #trauma. 2/n
#Afghanistan 🇦🇫 has been a monumental tragedy since 1979. For everyone from Afg. No one has escaped it.

The fact that you may think that you have been untouched is not a fact.

It's a really sad illusion.

You need to accept this if you haven't already. We're TRAUMATIZED. 3/n

This is an example of the way our #trauma can become our traits.

A quick 🧵:

.When we begin thinking similarly to the friends of the main person speaking, it’s often because we ourselves have experienced a lack of safety or betrayal in groups… and often respectively.

As a result, we’ve had to repetitively stay in a self-protective stance in groups.

.When we’re constantly put in situations where we need to be self-protective, that trauma response runs a higher risk of becoming a trait:

a way of behaving/being that we STAY in even when we don’t have to.

Auf mehrfache Nachfrage versuche ich mal einen kleinen Thread zur Einführung in die Bedeutung bindungsorientierter Arbeit in der Arbeit mit Kindern und Jugendlichen, die mit ihrem #Verhalten irritieren und verstören. #Bindung #Jugendhilfe #Trauma #Pädagogik 1/32
Da ich dabei von einem dynamischen Bindungsmodell auf Grundlage neuerer Forschungen (z.B. Fraley & Spieker, Shaver & Mikulincer) sowie systemisch-familientherapeutischen Modellen (z.B. v. Sydow, Jopt) ausgehe, muss ich theoretisch ein wenig ausholen, damit es verstehbar ist 2/32
Die grundlegende Hypothese der Bindungstheorie ist, dass jeder Mensch ein natürliches Bedürfnis nach Bindung zu (erwachsenen) Bezugspersonen hat (Bowlby). Inwieweit dieses Bedürfnis erfüllt wird, hängt mit der Feinfühligkeit der Bezugsperson für Signale des Kindes zusammen. 3/32

Today the European Commission will publish a proposal for a new law which will make the interception, analysis and monitoring of *ALL* digital communications (messengers, forums, direct messages etc.) mandatory.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam
Let me be clear - this is ILLEGAL under EU Treaties and Case Law under the principles of proportionality and necessity. This new law will turn the EU into a surveillance state.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam #childsexualabuse
500 million citizens will be subjected to complete blanket surveillance - the impact on privacy will be profound. Everything we have fought for since 1949 - our values, our principles, our democracy and our human rights, will be undone with the scratch of a pen.

Sinceramente no se bien como se hace esto y una amiga me dijo que necesitaba un título llamativo, asi que... Abro hilo...
Contexto, me mudé con mi familia a Hermosillo a principios del año, a una casa que se nota ya tiene tiempo…
La casa es un completo desastre, las reformas aún no terminan y solo tiene 2 habitaciones, una para mis papás y la otra se rifó entre mi hermana y yo en una penosa partida de UNO, y adivinen quien perdió…

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:

Kashmir Files has given us one more opportunity to look at how we react to others' trauma.

This is important skill beacuse as parents we are constantly puzzled by need to give "appropriate" reaction to children's experiences.

Let's see how we can help.
First principle - hear it out.
If you let children talk about their experience without interruption, they will be able to verbalize their feelings and that act itself is helpful as brain finds words to express and contain distress.
Do not ask for justification of feeling - there is never a justification for an emotion. It is a natural reflex.

All explanations are post-hoc justifications. They have no real meaning.

An in-depth review of Tibial Pilon Fractures.

If you’re interested in orthopedics, you’ll definitely want to check this review out.


To view our past reviews, visit:
💻📱 Image
Most tibial pilon fractures result from high-energy axial loading through the talus.

They are also commonly referred to as Tibial Plafond fractures. The tibial plafond is the distal articular surface of the tibia, which gained the name from its French meaning, "ceiling". Image
The term tibial pilon was first used by Étienne Destot in 1911 to describe the interaction of the distal tibia and talus during axial loading.

Pilon is the French term for "pestle".

The term was later adopted as a term for vertical impaction fractures of the distal tibia. Image

Thermobarics: a primer

First, here is a great chemistry thread by @johnismay.

Summary: thermobarics are a type of explosive that seek to lengthen the time for which the blast produces HEAT ("thermo") and PRESSURE ("baric")

But why does this increase injuries & damage?...(1/10)
(2/10) All explosives cause damage through the pressure wave they produce (in addition to things like shrapnel). The outwardly expanding pressure wave is why you might escape w/burns if you hold a firecracker on an open palm, but you will lose your hand if you close your fingers.
(3/10) If the pressure wave lasts a long time, it is hitting targets with that elevated pressure for a longer time.

Think of pressure washers: focus the flow on one spot, that spot can get damaged. Longer pressure waves mean more energy/damage imparted to anything that gets hit.

A review of upper extremity Eponym Fractures.

It is important for clinicians to be aware of eponymous fractures as they are commonly used and allow for a succinct description of sometimes complex injuries.


To view our past reviews, visit:
First off, what is an eponym fracture?

Eponymous: of, relating to, or being the person or thing for whom or which something is named.

Eponym fractures are named based on the first person to describe them (e.g. Holstein-Lewis) or by an activity (e.g. Chauffer's)
We will review the eponymous fractures of the upper extremity going from proximal to distal.

To start off, what is an eponym for the following lesion?
