    My Documentary: Diagnosis Uncertain #viisquad #HealthDocumentary #advocate #justice #HealthcareProviders #Documentary

    Hey guys, this is my Documentary. We're hoping to turn it into a series since I have a lot of ongoing things and discoveries. If anyone has any recommendations on where to submit this, please let me know. Also, please let me know if you have an interest in sharing your story. I've been treated TERRIBLY by the healthcare system, and I'm the one suffering and paying for it ultimately. There's some sinister stuff happening within the system, and I'm making a stand. youtu.be/z2janL-IySY

    Compare your results with the machine from the doctor's office when you attend your doctor's appointment. This will reveal if there are any discrepancies.

    Quick Tip Thursday: Request a GAD Autoantibodies Test to Eliminate a LADA Misdiagnosis

    A GAD antibody test can detect LADA through the detection of elevated levels of pancreatic autoantibodies in patients with diabetes who do not require insulin. These antibodies also predict the rate of progression towards insulin deficiency.

    Your healthcare provider is not a superhuman

    As a healthcare worker during the time of the pandemic has been a learning experience that I will value forever. I have learned about myself and my collages and my profession and my allied professions. We are a team through and through!

    I am very proud to be a healthcare provider but, we are human, we are tired and we are stressed. I love that my patients feel like they can relay on me and they always can! I will do whatever I can to help, not because of my oath but because of who I am!

    Anyway, I just want to post and say that all healthcare providers that are tired, stressed, depressed, anxious and still do their jobs despite their own health issues that you can and should take a bow and take a rest. We need you to rest and recharge to do your best!

    Memory Garden

    This is my Memory Garden which I created to honor my precious brother Dennis who completed suicide on 8/21/19. The snow storm destroyed some of the flowers but the snapdragons and small flowers (not sure what they’re called) along the fence survived. It has been my therapy and self care project since august 2020. After months of grief and anxiety following his death then the pandemic started and I worked as a healthcare professional in a facility for elderly people, I hit my breaking point in August 2020. I enrolled myself in a virtual partial hospitalization program and then intensive out patient. My treatment was 4 months total. I learned about self care, meditation, and strength. I worked through my past traumas and how to cope with my anxiety and depression. It was a life changing experience. I made the heartbreaking decision to leave healthcare altogether in February this year and start a new career as a data analyst. I’m working from home now where I am more readily available for my 2 daughters who also have mental health issues. It’s been a huge transition for all of us. My grief for my brother remains as big as ever but I am slowly learning to live my life with the empty space- planting flowers along the way. #Anxiety #Depression #Grief #SuicideLoss #PTSD #HealthcareProviders #movingforward #COVID19

    08:52:00 And still waiting in the ER waiting room

    Make that the not socially distanced waiting room. They did some blood work hours ago, never reported on it. Was supposed to have an EKg due to internal bleeding. Never happened. Still sitting here. Looking around. Waiting. I'm currently three feet or less from the person next to me. They have others even closer with less than a foot apart. People in wheel chairs are ontop of eachother with wheels touching eachother. I'm not at a rinky dink hospital either. I'm at the areas largest hospital, the largest in upstate NY actually at UR Medicine's Strong Memorial Hospital. To say I'm disgusted is beyond an understatement. They have no room here at all. It's nothing new since the pandemic either. This has been the standard of what they call "medicine of the highest order" for years. It's disgusting, it's abysmal, and it's horrific to say the least in the middle of a Pandemic while others sit and act like the virus doesn't exist. #Hospital #COVID19 #MentalHealth #HealthcareProviders #Depression #ComplexUnspecifiedNeuromuscularDisease #CPTSD #PTSD #Trauma

    Question

    Maybe it’s been asked before but... How do you explain to supers about childhood trauma when it becomes relevant? #HealthcareProviders #MentalHealth

    Where would you go?

    If you had the choice to go anywhere- from 1 week to 1 month and would get back to your place after that time- where would you go?

    Me, I would go to the Camino de Santiago in Medieval times. #MentalHealth #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #Depression #COVID19 #ChronicIllness #European #Irish #Anxiety #2020 #NHS #Burnout #HealthcareProviders
