I have been going over&over this in my head(&w/my therapist) for months now….& it’s time I talked about it out loud. I may be open&pro self disclosure& meds, but as it turns out, I carry a lot of self stigma about being on them. Today-I’m done w/that. instyle.com/beauty/health-fi…

I have never tested positive for any variant but I have felt fatigued for the past 1,000 days.

Nurses: Is your hospital/clinic using doctors &/or administrators for nursing shifts to cover shortages? Or calling in nursing students separate from their usual clinicals? Pls reach out to me. DMs open. Anonymity can be preserved.

If you haven't binged #Yellowjackets yet, this is your sign. "At its core, Yellowjackets is really about the raw experience of being human, and what happens in the face of an unthinkable trauma," @drjessigold writes. instyle.com/lifestyle/yellow…

talk to me about your experience with long COVID for @TeenVogue. DMs open always!
I hope this year the media as a whole can start covering Long Covid significantly more. Long Covid is almost never even mentioned in news podcast episodes on COVID, news articles on COVID, or it’s framed as an afterthought, something to throw down in the 10th paragraph

Apologies for continuing to tweet this, but between the doctor who is working with COVID patients being told not to test by administrators working remotely & a 21-year-old making $7.25 an hour being told not to test, what's happening is bad, and matters: teenvogue.com/story/employer…

Sleep is a luxury when closing your eyes just shows you memories like this….
This shared experience between an ICU physician & the nurses who cared for an young unvaccinated patient they lost is gut wrenching & all too familiar.

Healthcare workers are not heros. We're human.
I talked to @PsychiatristCNS about all things #mentalhealth and #covid19 Esp for healthcare workers and college students…but also more broadly…
