Not Blogging Equals Stress

As I also previously blogged, I haven't been blogging as much recently. And I have been feeling very stressed, and depressed recently. I realized these might be connected. At the beginning of my medical disasters (except my hysterectomy which was 18 months earlier) 9.5 years ago, I started blogging about my medical crap. I was'expressing my stress'(say that three times fast). I trained myself to vent through my writing. Then I haven't been writing, so I haven't been venting.Last night I started thinking (which is very dangerous at times) and realized that I really need to start blogging again for the emotional stress release I need.What is on my mind causing me stress? The bump on my head was a real eye opener to my stress levels. I spent most of last week doing a lot of nothing.I stayed home all week, not just one day as usual. I went to PT on Monday and the doctor for my concussion diagnosis on Tuesday and that was it. I physically was not up to doing anything else. I didn't go to the gym at all. When I go three times a week, I get to see a lot of people and chat with some. I think its my one big'get and see people'event each time I go. I also cancelled my second PT appointment of the week and skipped my knitting group. In not going out, I really isolated myself. Which was very bad. But I did feel so bad the beginning of the week that physically I needed to stay home and rest.By the end of the week, physically I was feeling better but emotionally I was feeling worse. I...

CONCLUSIONS: Lifestyle subgroups of patients were determined by stress, emotional problems, and age. The groups were significantly associated with Aβ42 and diagnostic outcome. This pattern may confound the differentiation between objective and subjective memory problems. Asking about lifestyle variables, in conjunction with neuropsychological testing, could potentially identify individuals who are not likely to have objective memory impairment and guide interventions.

(New York University) Following up on their landmark 2016 study, researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine found that a one-time, single-dose treatment of psilocybin, a compound found in psychedelic mushrooms, combined with psychotherapy appears to be associated with significant improvements in emotional and existential distress in cancer patients.

Also, being a problematic BCS class IV drug, it poses challenges for the formulators. Henceforth, it was envisioned to synthesize an analogue of DTX with a biocompatible lipid, i.e., palmitic acid. The in-silico studies (molecular docking a...

Conclusions: mTBI patients continue to be told to rest for longer than expert recommendations and practice guidelines. This study supports growing evidence that prolonged rest after mTBI is generally unhelpful, as patients in the exposure group were less likely to have resumed work/school at 1–2 months post-injury. We could not identify patient characteristics associated with getting prolonged rest advice. Further exploration of who gets told to rest and who delivers the advice could inform strategic de-implementation of this clinical practice. Introduction In the early twenty-first century, complete rest until...
