on va mettre un #TW comme ça on viendra pas me casser les lucioles
Vous savez quelle est la différence entre un maxillofacial et le reste du monde ?
C'est que devant ce cas moi je rigole en me disant qu'on va bien rigoler au bloc.
Je vous explique pourquoi
Alors on va éliminer ce préambule tout de suite. Les patients qui font ce genre de geste ont besoin d'aide ce sont des personnes en difficulté et il est important de les soutenir et de les aider. Ce ne sont pas juste des "cas médicaux"
mais la maintenant on va parler juste du cas
Tout d'abord les plaies balistiques de la face c'est toujours quelque chose de particulier à gérer. Sans faire de cynisme le suicide par arme à feu (qui est une spécialité masculine au passage) est une mauvaise idée car surtout une source de séquelles

Okay, enough people are interested. I'll try tokeep it brief. But, be warned, the story is pretty bad, there's no happy ending, and victims of sexual violence might be triggered by it. So when I put in #TW I mean it.

Grover Cleveland (1837-1908). 22nd & 24th President. 1/
Historian Allan Nevins (no relation) praised Cleveland's "honesty, courage, firmness, independence, and common sense." Of course, he wrote that in 1932, when white male historians generally thought of women as objects & impediments rather than human beings.
In 1873 Cleveland is Sheriff of Erie County (NY). While shopping in a department store he sees Maria Halpin, a store clerk. He thinks she's very attractive and begins pestering her for a date. After *several months* of rejecting him Halpin finally agrees to a date. 3/

Balls to it

I've long dealt with people dismissing my takes on #mentalhealth as I'm an aloof academic who only deals in 'the science'. Ergo I rank lower than someone with 'real experience' (e.g. Hari), apparently

You want to know why I'm so invested? I'll tell you


And yes, there is talk of suicide in this, so #TW and so forth. Apologies in advance for any distress, feel free to mute/block/unfollow if that's a bit much.

Why do I care so much about mental health being covered/explained correctly & compassionately, when I've no (known) issues myself? Other than 'It's obviously the right thing to do and only a heartless prick could think otherwise', that is?

As ever, it started in childhood

Sobre saúde mental na academia. Já contei essa história algumas vezes, mas vamos lá. Trigger Warning. #SetembroAmarelo
Fiz meu doutorado em Cambridge, com bolsa CAPES. Era um fudido, pois a bolsa era OK mas a cidade era cara. Isso acabava me juntando com outros fudidos: africanos, latinos e russos.
Eu dividia a primeira casa com 14 pessoas, era o menor aluguel do College. O casarão tinha sido do Fisher, BTW. A primeira pessoa que me recebeu foi o Alex, um físico russo. Foi um dos meus melhores amigos de Cambridge. A gente era uma dupla que trabalhava muito e gastava pouco.

I was going to see Captain Marvel today out of...idk, a sense of duty? I never MIND watching Marvel movies the first time; they're entertaining, just not rewatchable for me. I got all the way to buying the ticket and realized, "I really DO NOT WANT to see this." Here's why.
#tw #transphobia This movie has characters checking a character's genitals to determine if it's male or female and it's meant to be a joke. Just reading about it feels like violence to me. It's so distasteful. I hate this.
The movie has been sold as LOOK THIS IS A WOMAN SUPERHERO, like they deserve a cookie for taking more than a decade to have a woman headlining a movie. It's patronizing and frankly fucking irritating.

What is being hidden in the documents from Judge Kavanaugh's time in the Bush White House? We the People and all Senators deserve to know before any hearings. #NoToKavanaugh #StopKavanaugh #ReleaseTheRecords #TW
Judge Kavanaugh changed his position on impeaching a sitting president after he aggressively orchestrated Ken Starr’s investigation of a Dem president. NO ONE is above the law. #NoToKavanaugh #StopKavanaugh #TW
