People who refuse to #VoteBlue b/c they're mad about #M4A won't get ANY healthcare bills up for a vote, not even the 3 rx-price bills already passed by the House b/c McConnell blocks them. He's blocking 400+ House bills right NOW. newsweek.com/mitch-mcconnel…
People who refuse to #VoteBlue because they're mad about #M4A will deliver unto us a #conservative Supreme Court for decades to come that would OVERTURN #M4A if it passed & were challenged by #Republicans the way Trump is asking them to do RIGHT NOW w/ the #ACA. Image
If you agree with the #democrats that healthcare is a human right, then #VoteBlue. If you want to pressure Congress to pass #M4A, #VoteBlue. The #Republican Party is BLOCKING basics like rx drug prices & challenging the #ACA in court.
If you agree with #dems that healthcare is a human right, then chances are high you agree that #BlackLivesMatter, that the #ClimateCrisis is not a hoax, that a president should not demand #CDC to slow the #Covid19 testing down & his CDC director says ok, then #VoteBlue.
If you agree with #dems that healthcare is a human right, then chances are you agree that women should decide what happens to their bodies. #Kavanaugh has already written--in a Supreme Court decision--that he'd overturn #Roe. Trump's replacement for #RBG is prolife. #VoteBlue Image
If you agree with #dems that healthcare is a human right, chances are you agree that having a president who can keep the country safe & who'll act globally to keep others safe, too, from war & disease & famine, #VoteBlue.
If you agree with #dems that healthcare is a human right, then chances are you don't want google search results for "children in cages" to be photos from the United States of America. #VoteBlue Image
If you agree with #dems that healthcare is a human right, then you probably care that the Trump administration kidnapped children b/c their parents LEGALLY sought #asylum & didn't fucking bother to keep track of who their parents are. #VoteBlue #VoteBlue Image
If you agree with #dems that healthcare is a human right, then chances are you don't think there are "very good" white supremacists & anti-Semites. #VoteBlue Image
If you agree with #dems that healthcare is a human right, you probably also don't want a white nationalist president who has "dozens" of staffers with ties to white nationalism. #VoteBlue americasvoice.org/blog/trump-adm…
If you agree with #dems that healthcare is a human right, you probably want a president & a cabinet that put protecting lives from #hurricanes, #ClimateChange, and #COVID19 ahead of playing #golf, #tweeting, & watching #FoxNews. Image
If you oppose #MassIncarceration & the #DeathPenalty & sentencing children to death in prison, then #VoteBlue. #Bidenp's proposing the most progressive crim justice reform in history.

🟡 These are my students. Their lives depend on free people to #VoteBlue. Image
Reporter: Will the president accept election results?

@PressSec: "The President has always said he'll see what happens & make a determination in the aftermath."

🔵 "VoteBlue for what?" Give me a fucking break.

#Migraine is a neurological disorder, not a terrible, disabling #headache," expert @DavidDodick explains. #Pain is "just 1 clinical manifestation deriving from a sensory processing disturbance affecting the nervous system" (Morgan, Lancet 2020). /Thread thelancet.com/journals/laneu…
Billie lost her insurance when #migraine disabled her: “There are days I don't see anything except for shapes." Visual warnings are the most commonly recognized auras, but these symptoms are highly variable, both in different patients & on different days for the same patient. 2/
Difficulty speaking or speaking clearly is another common #migraine symptom, either preceding or during an attack.

Poor St. Husband. He watched this clip & said, "Yup, that's you." I spent a lotta years in school to talk like this. 3/

A Yale study of 10 patients found 1 dose of #psilocybin can cut #migraine frequency in half for 2 weeks. Each patient did 1 session with placebo, 1 with the drug. People who felt most high got the least migraine relief. /thread newatlas.com/health-wellbei…
The Yale researchers who conducted the small, but 1st of its kind study suggest #migraine patients might benefit from microdoses or sub-hallucinogenic doses of #psilocybin. Understanding how psilocybin prevents migraine might open new pathways for drug development, as well.
I did 2 #migraine clinical trials. I'm glad someone else took this one for the team. I hated Methysergide (Sansert), now discontinued, which was synthesized from lysergic #acid. A 1965 study said Sansert users experienced a "confused feeling of unreality." Tell me about it.

“[W]idespread & variable dysfunction of the nervous system…comprises the aberrant brain state of a #migraine attack” (Charles 2017).

Daily/near-daily migraine is continuous migraine. Imaging shows our brains *always* look like brains during an "attack" (Brennan 2018). >thread
Recurrent #migraine & #pain aren't benign. “Long-lasting &/or repetitive pain over years leads to profound functional as well as structural changes in the brain networks" (Brennan).

Ineffective treatment is a leading risk of progression to continuous migraine. #MedicalTwitter
Brennan & Pietrobon's paper "A Systems Neuroscience Approach to #Migraine" (Neuron 2018) is @headsUPmigraine's favorite. I excerpted it for others like me who aren't fluent in #neurochemistry:

Even if they support the #DeathPenalty, most people think that only people who've killed should be killed.

🔴Prosecutors never claimed #DustinHiggs killed anyone, but #Barr has scheduled him to die 5 days before inauguration. Deeply moving video: /thread vimeo.com/194702182
#DustinHiggs was in his early 20s when he drove a shooter from a crime scene. Prosecutors said the shooter "acted alone," but they failed to get the #DeathPenalty. So they accused Higgs of being the mastermind.

The shooter got life w/ no parole. Higgs is to die on 1/15/21.
Jurors did NOT hear mitigating factors that might've led them to choose death in prison by no parole over execution. They didn't know he was 10 when he was his mother's f/t caretaker as she died of breast cancer. Nor did they know he has learning & developmental disabilities.
