“What is actual reality?” patients frequently ask, especially those who have a changing sense of reality. I explain that our sense organs evolved with our environment to exquisitely mirror it-so we have to consider this is reality. Us: https://t.co/VOm63Hc41r
What’s the secret in dating a foreign national? Tolerance & ability to accept & sacrifice. I.e., to accept the partner will not have the best job, or that you may need to move to the partner’s country someday. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx
Why is it common for young persons to start a career that is interesting to them but unpractical? Simply, they don’t realize what aging and the real world of life will bring upon them. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx
Do “Partridge families work?” Some do and some don’t. If you are a parent in one, the answer is to know if the kids are able to tolerate the situation and flexibly change who lives with who as necessary. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx
Divorce in Japan? Following the family court leads to the same cookie-cutter outcome no matter what discussion is in the cookie machine. Answer: get out of the cookie cutter machine! How? There are many ways to negotiate using social pressure that a lawyer will never tell you.
What do you do when your estranged parents all of a sudden give a large gift to your child’s school? You can tell the school not to give out your child’s connection to the gift, but we don’t know where it will go next. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx
Postpartum depression: new baby stress, sleep poor, husband not available, etc. Lots of stressors to blame, but the real cause in most cases are disrupted hormones and neurotransmitters, not as easy to see as the stress. Us: https://t.co/VOm63Hc41r, https://t.co/uaoP3ZvxU7
"HUMANS DON'T ACT until there’s a crisis” someone told me today. How true! Career, finances, medical care, finding or leaving a romance, family affairs, keeping an eye on your child. Few people who plan and act regret it, those that act on crises usually end in regret.
So is a belief bubble ok? Say all you can see is that candidates are electable by voting, but you can’t see that all the candidates (from every party) on the ballot are all loyal to a hidden entity that places them on the ballot even if their stated platform is different.
What is a “belief bubble”? It’s a set of looking at some aspect of the world that doesn’t take the larger picture into account. The person’s behavior and thinking will be determined by the attributes of the bubble’s assumptions. Is this bad? See next week’s tweet.
Covid prevention & treatments right under our noses! Vits D & C, zinc, quercetin (in place of hydroxychloroquine), macrolides like erythromycin used for acne, baby aspirin, amantadine (flu drug), BCG vaccine, and more, go look! Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G
The Covid deaths/pop in Japan as of today 972/125,930,000=0.0000077. In the US 129,654/331,002,651=0.00039. The ratio of deaths to pop of Japan vs US 0.0000077/0.00039=0.0197, about 2%. Something is very strange with biology, cultural norms, or the way stats are taken or a mix.
In >200 persons at our center from all over Japan in the last 6 months, only 3 had a few weeks of rough cold symptoms, and all recovered at home on no meds (none were tested for Covid). 1 had loss of smell & taste. Incidence rate of 1.5%, death rate of 0%.
People can have acne then pick on it and have acne & a big red spot. Similarly, people can have anxiety and then get anxious and blow-up many areas of their life. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G
“My dad is a terrible person” is a common complaint. It should be “my dad is terrible to be with”. This is because these dads have mental issues out of their control. Getting away from dad is still the answer but realizing dad is not well can be eye-opening.
