    Synthetic Antibiotic Offers New Hope Against Resistant Bacteria

    There is great news in medicine this week as scientists at the University of Liverpool have developed and tested a synthetic version of teixobactins designed to eradicate antibiotic-resistant superbugs. The study released this week showed the successful eradication of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in mice and found the synthetic antibiotic accumulates at sites of infection for up to 24 hours in amounts greater than that required to kill superbugs.

    If these results are repeated in human testing, it means future patients will only need to take one pill a day to eradicated antibiotic-resistant infections.

    What is particularly exciting about this development is the new drug can be stored at room temperature for up to a year, eliminating the need for cold storage and increasing its availability to rural and poor communities around the globe. Furthermore, the scientists swapped out certain amino acids in the teixobactins with low-cost, readily available alternatives that reduces the cost of manufacturing the synthetic antibiotic by 2000 times.

    This is a game-changing development for world health. Nearly two million people die worldwide every year from antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and that number is expected to rise to 10 million people a year by 2050. This new synthetic antibiotic has the potential to eliminate that growing threat tomorrow, and that makes this great medical news today.

    Feeling #lonely and depressed. Scared I’ll always be alone romantically.

    #lonely
    I'm 33, single and have only had one long term
    relationship, 3 years, but he didn't love me, and would
    say really unkind things that made me feel not good
    enough.
    Prior to that relationship I dealt with
    alcoholism in my immediate family as a young child and
    teen. So I've always had very low self esteem. I was
    teased very badly for the entirety of secondary school
    because I turned to food as a comfort and was 24 stone
    by the time I left school at 16. My Mom then became
    very ill and spent many months in hospital with MRSA
    and septicemia, and didn't recognise me or my brother
    because she was so ill. It ended with her having her
    right leg amputated. She was unwell for years.

    I went to do my A Levels at 21, got down to 15 stone
    7, was happy and doing well..the month I
    completed my A Levels I was diagnosed with stage 4
    Hodgkin's lymphoma and had 6 months chemotherapy
    and lost my hair and dealt with everything else that
    entailed. That obviously had a huge impact on my
    mental health and I honestly don't think I've been the
    same since.
    I met my ex boyfriend not long after all of that and
    stayed with him for 3 years, but as I said it wasn't a
    particularly healthy relationship.

    My Mom then became very ill again as a result of
    neurological painkillers she was given for the phantom
    pain in her amputated limb, she was taken off of them
    too quickly which caused grand mal seizures for years.

    After that I decided to go forward for weight loss
    surgery, I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, and lost 10
    stone, however I did put about 1.5 stone back on in the
    initial lockdowns as I had only had my op under a year
    prior and my new lifestyle was not ingrained yet.
    Then obviously covid happened which has caused most
    people a lot of stress.

    I have a job in a retail store that I enjoy, when I can cope
    with my mental health. I am also doing a degree in art
    and design, including learning ceramics and
    printmaking which I really love! I often get anhedonia
    though and so can struggle with it when I'm not well.
    Since being diagnosed with cancer at 23 I've been
    certain that I want to marry and have children of my
    own. My brother is married and has a wonderful wife
    and two gorgeous children. So I have a lot of joy in my
    life, I also have a very good relationship with both of my
    parents dispite the alcoholism in my childhood.
    I have some very good friends and I know I'm very
    blessed to have all of these things.
    I want so badly to find 'my person' though and it
    genuinely worries me that I never will.

    Met someone at work last year who I liked and he
    seemed to like me, but all he wanted was fwb which is
    not something I can do, I get too attached and it's not
    what I want. I then went on about 4 dates with a guy
    who I just 'clicked' with, we talked all the time, he
    seemed to be as interested as me and then he just
    disappeared. Came back said he'd made a 'huge mistake' then did it again. It hurts like hell and I'm so confused. He’s now blocked me on everything. #lonely

    #overwhelmed

    #ChronicIllness I am feeling very beat up the past several days, held hostage by the many health issues I face every day. I don't know why, but I think it would make me feel better to be seen. I feel quite invisible most of the time.

    It's a long list, so please forgive me. Thank u so much for providing a safe place for me to 👄 about my diagnoses, and where I can hopefully also be supportive of others.

    Here goes:

    Depression

    Anxiety

    Medical PTSD

    OCD

    Autonomic Neurological Disorder

    Frequent Balance Problems, Dizziness and Falls

    Orthostatic Hypotension

    Involuntary Movement in Extremities

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    Fibromyalgia

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Insomnia

    Sleep Apnea

    Elevated Blood Pressure

    Type 2 Diabetes

    Diabetic Neuropathy

    Arthritis of Spine

    Degenerative Disc Disease

    Herniated Lumbar Disc

    Total Knee Replacement (left)

    The Answer to What Else Can Go Wrong!

    Shortly, before Thanksgiving I developed an infection in my left foot and left forearm. They both cultured for Staph A and the foot also grew MRSA. The forearm was also infected with a fungus. My Simponi Aria In fusions were stopped immediately.

    Shortly before Christmas my Crohn’s ‘s Disease and RA started to come out of remission. A new painful, scaly rash appeared on my elbow. Yes, it was determined to be Psoriasis. My primary said that and I have been hoping he was mistaken.

    I saw the rheumatologist today. I can restart my Simponi Aria Infusions next week. But, I came home with to more diagnosis: psoratic arthritis and autoimmune vasculitis. That made my day! My rheumatologist said he wasn’t surprised about me getting psoriasis and genetically the are in the group with Crohn’s disease. He feels the RA is an in an of group.

    Will never you have it, what Santa brought my for Christmas

    Not a great day today. #emotional #momsbirthday #worriedaboutdad

    Today is my Mom's birthday, she passed away April 21, 2018. It's been a year and a half and sometimes it still feels like the first day my Dad told me. She was 82 when she passed and she looked and acted 62. She would have been 84 today and normally she and my Dad (86) would have done a fast walk to the gym then walked back home. They were married for 60 years and the most wonderful example of what a great marriage is.
    Mom was in the hospital because she had pneumonia, she was doing well and then ended up with MRSA. She was in ICU and they just couldn't save her. One of the nurses slipped up and told me that she had actually vomited in her sleep and choked on it.
    The attachment above is something I have only shared with my Husband and my Mom. I'm sure there are many others that feel the same way I did when I found this. I could have written it myself although I didn't.
    So before your head hits your pillow tonight, if you pray or not, please be thankful for your Mother. I think about mine every day, I miss mine every day, I love mine every day.
