Unhappy New Year

Please enter your email address here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply These might be the most important resolutions you need to remember this year…For many, the new year is a time to imagine great possibilities. Sadly, there are others of us who struggle to get into the spirit, whose depression and anxiety is even exacerbated by the turn of that first calendar page. During this heightened time, the loss of a loved one, financial difficulties, or any big life change that may have happened during the previous year can cause overwhelming feelings that can manifest as crying spells, irritability, fatigue, sleeping more often, insomnia, panic attacks, or suicidal thoughts.It is essential to remember that, even when things seem hopeless, they’re not. These emotions are not uncommon and are treatable. You don’t have to feel miserable for an indefinite amount of time. Irma Acosta, PA-C, an experienced, bilingual physician assistant at Apopka Family Practice, says that after starting treatment and following up a month later, patients more often than not feel tremendous relief and are glad they decided to do something about their mood.Resolve to Give Yourself a Break: 4 Things to Remember about depression as the new year startsNo shame. You don’t need a reason to be depressed or anxious. Sometimes you just are. Needing help doesn’t make you weak. “Some of my patients come in saying they don’t know why they can’t just snap out of it, that they have nothing to be sad about,” Acosta says. “But depression and anxiety are medical conditions that need treatment, just like you would seek help for hypertension or diabetes.”Sad vs. Depressed. It is normal to sometimes be sad or “stressed,” when life is difficult. But when those symptoms begin to affect your life, you should reach out to your primary care physician for help. Do you feel withdrawn, angry, or have a lack of interest in activities you once enjoyed? “During an office visit, I will typically listen as the patient talks about how their mood is affecting their life, and I’ll talk about treatment options,” Acosta says. “The patient and l will then decide on a course of treatment together.”You have options. Treatment options might include:Referral to a psychologist or counselor. “Sometimes talking through the emotions and underlying issues can make a tremendous difference to a patient. Just the feeling of being ‘heard’ is very important,” Acosta says. “For religious patients, Florida Hospital’s spiritual counselors can call and pray with a patient, as well as connect the patient to local churches in the area who might offer free counseling.”Clinical depression is a medical issue and can be greatly relieved by medication. “Some patients are concerned that starting a medication for their mood may turn them into a ‘zombie’ or might make them dependent on the medication,” Acosta says. “The truth is that many of the medications we use these days can be tolerated easily; are not sedating; and are safe to use for as long as the patient needs, as long as they comply with routine monitoring.”Don’t tough it out. “If someone is anxious or depressed during this time of year, it’s not unlikely that they have a chronic condition which was simply exacerbated due to the holidays and all the changes January brings,” Acosta says. “Ongoing issues should absolutely be addressed in a doctor’s office visit.”Sometimes anxiety and depression can become so severe that a person may consider taking their own life. Signs of someone having suicidal ideations include: verbalizing their wish, thinking/talking about how they would do it, or withdrawing from their significant others/friends. If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, call 911.Make an appointment for your next health screening with Irma Acosta, PA-C, at FHMedicalGroup.com, or call (407) 886-1300.  Irma Acosta is a certified physician assistant at Apopka Family Practice who is fluent in English and Spanish. Working with Dr. Rae Ringenberg, her clinical specialties include depression, anxiety, weight loss, skin cancer screening and well-woman exams.

TCU takes a new step to help sexual assault victims

first_imgFacebook Facebook ReddIt ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Review: ‘Black Panther’ delivered even with high expectations William Konig printTCU has created a new position to support victims of sexual assault.The director of Title IX advocacy and education is a certified advocate who can offer confidentiality to those seeking.Leah Carnahan, who most recently was an assistant dean in Campus Life, formally took on the role on June 1.Dr. Darron Turner, TCU’s Title IX coordinator, said Carnahan’s new role is as certified advocate and that she now has confidentiality to those with whom she talks.This new position comes as colleges and universities across the country grapple with the rules of Title IX.Turner said when the news broke this past spring about Baylor University’s mishandling sexual assault cases against football players, “TCU was already in the process of looking into their Title IX policies.”“We are always talking with students about what is most needed, and we are always looking to make adjustments to our policy as we see fit,” said Turner.He added that having a victim advocate who has confidentiality when talking with students isn’t required by law.Carnahan, who has worked at TCU for 14 years, has been doing advocacy work as the assistant Dean of Campus Life for the past three years.“To know I can make a difference and help someone through a very difficult process is what keeps me going,” said Carnahan. “When students choose to tell their parents and the parents thank me for being here to support their child is also why I do the work I do.”Carnahan’s duties include educating students and serving as an advocate for students reporting to law enforcement, the Title IX coordinator or any mandatory reporter for TCU.“Come and speak to me as the campus advocate to know more about your rights, options and resources,” said Carnahan. “If students are not comfortable with that, I always encourage students struggling with anything to reach out and speak with a counselor at the counseling center.”Part of Carnahan’s job is to provide immediate crisis support, information and referral to student victims. This includes an on-call crisis response when a student chooses to go to the hospital.“We will talk about reporting options, support resources for physical and emotional wellbeing as well other options available to them,” said Carnahan.

Beijing Book Fair: RSF urges publishers to reject Chinese censorship

first_img Receive email alerts After last week’s Cambridge University Press controversy and as the 24th Beijing International Book Fair gets under way, Reporters Without Borders urges international publishers not to get involved in the Chinese regime’s censorship. “As academics, we believe in the free and open exchange of ideas and information on all topics not just those we agree with,” said Christopher Balding, an associate professor of business and economics at the HSBC Business School in Shenzhen, who launched the petition. “It is disturbing (…) that China is attempting to export its censorship on topics that do not fit its preferred narrative.” March 12, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out more News August 28, 2017 Beijing Book Fair: RSF urges publishers to reject Chinese censorship GREG BAKER / AFP News ChinaAsia – Pacific Economic pressureFreedom of expressionInternet Organisation The censored articles, the oldest of which dates back to 2001, address such sensitive subjects as the Tiananmen Square massacre, Tibet, Taiwan, Xinjiang, the Cultural Revolution, uprisings, corruption and… the biographies of former leaders. Another CUP publication, the Journal of Asian Studies , has confirmed that the Chinese authorities also asked it to block access to about 100 articles in its online archives. Ranked 176th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, China is currently detaining more than 100 journalists and cyber-journalists. April 27, 2021 Find out more Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes “We urge international publishers not to become accomplices to this project, which is likely to cost them their souls and their reputations. As in all cases of blackmail, giving in to threats just encourages the blackmailers to step up their demands.” Publications that contradict the propaganda China wants to rewrite the world But the subject has been on everyone’s lips ever since the Cambridge University Press, a prestigious British academic publishing house, announced last week that, at the request of the Chinese authorities, it was blocking online access from within China to over 300 articles in the archives of its China Quarterly journal for Sinologists. The announcement set off a storm of protests in the university world, with more than 1,300 academics signing a petition. The CUP finally backed down and restored access to all the articles, but the reputation of this venerable British institution, which began publishing in 1534, thirty years before Shakespeare’s birth, has taken a knock. News It is hard for the Communist Party’s simplistic rhetoric to effectively challenge the conclusions of articles that are regarded as authoritative throughout the world. to go further “Far from being isolated, these two requests are part of large-scale plan deployed by the Chinese authorities with the aim of rewriting the world in a way that suits them,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia bureau. On the other hand, articles by international academics that are written with great care and are subjected to anonymous peer review before publication pose a threat to the Chinese regime because they provide students, academics and dissidents with an exhaustive store of scholarly knowledge on which to base their work. Help by sharing this information The organizers of the four-day Book Fair, which began on Thursday, are highlighting the anodyne themes of “lifestyle, home-making, health and wellness” and officially there is no censorship. Officially launched in 2011, the “Chinese Wikipedia” project is reportedly employing around 20,000 Chinese academics and has already produced more than 900,000 articles. The sole – but significant – difference from the original is that its content is written “with Chinese characteristics” (meaning in line with propaganda) by closely supervised academics. A Chinese Wikipedia under construction RSF_en China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison The CUP defended the decision on the grounds that it was necessary “to ensure that other academic and educational materials we publish remain available to researchers and educators” in China.” In other words, it wanted to ensure that it kept a presence in the Chinese market. News Until now, the regime’s censorship has focused on leading Chinese-language publications targeting the general public. After recently tightening their grip on the national media, now described as the Party’s soldiers, unleashing an offensive against bloggers and citizen-journalists and reinforcing the “Great Firewall,” China’s leaders have news coverage under control. As part of its efforts to isolate China from the “unacceptably” libertarian attitudes of international academics, the regime is also developing its own online collaborative encyclopaedia. The original Wikipedia, which has been offering Chinese-language content since 2001, was often censored and was finally blocked for good in 2015 after co-founder Jimmy Wales publicly rejected censorship by Beijing.

Police: Suspect who allegedly killed off-duty officer dies in shooting

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NASHVILLE, Ky.) — A 34-year-old man accused of shooting an off-duty officer late Thursday in Kentucky is dead after a police-involved shooting, authorities said.The officer who was killed in the line of duty had been driving his personal vehicle when the suspect pulled him over a little after 5 p.m. while impersonating a cop, the Hopkinsville Police Department said in a statement.Shortly thereafter, the suspect, James K. Decoursey, allegedly shot the officer and fled, police said.Decoursey absconded on food before stealing a white Chevrolet pickup truck with Kentucky license plate 2070GH, according to police.The officer who was shot, Phillip Meacham, was taken to Jenny Stuart Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.Meacham, 38, was married and had two school-aged children. He’d been with the Hopkinsville Police Department since May of last year after 12 years at the Christian County Sheriff’s Department.Gov. Matt Bevin wrote on Twitter that there is “no greater sacrifice than that of a person willing to lay down their life for another.”The shooting of Meacham occurred in Hopkinsville, a city in the western part of the state, ABC Nashville affiliate WKRN reported.

As Hurricane Florence hits the Carolinas, Superstorm Sandy survivor helps pay it forward

first_imgChip Somodevilla/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — A New Jersey woman who survived Superstorm Sandy and received help from strangers is calling on people to step up and return the favor to the people in the Carolinas who are in the crosshairs of Hurricane Florence. Joan DeLucia has formed a group of New Jerseyians and set up a Facebook page to help transport equipment to residents in North and South Carolina in the recovery process after Hurricane Florence blows through.“They are now in the line of the hurricane so we are taking donations, packing trucks and bringing them stuff to help them out,” DeLucia told ABC News over a phone interview. “Not as much as they helped us but as much as we can right now.”Superstorm Sandy was one of the deadliest and most destructive storms of the 2012 hurricane season. It caused 117 deaths and led to approximately 20,000 people having to take shelter, according to the CDC.DeLucia said she hasn’t forgotten the goodwill displayed by the people of the Carolinas during those difficult times.“The North Carolina Baptist men … came in for two, three probably three and a half years and did mold remediation for free,” DeLucia said. “They also did repairs to the home and helped rebuild.”“They stayed here seven days a week, 24 hours a day. They brought a trailer down, made themselves the little spot. And people would go to them and ask them for help. They would do everything and anything they can do.”Hurricane Florence, a Category 1 storm, barrelled into North Carolina early Friday with wind gusts hovering around 100 mph. Officials feared it will drop “biblical” floodwaters.DeLucia knows what those residents are in for.“They’re going to wake up in a few days their worlds are going to be changed. Everything’s going to be different,” DeLucia said. “And we just want to provide a little bit of help.”That’s why DeLucia is urging people who benefitted from the kindness that helped her through the aftermath of Sandy to give back.She is asking for materials like lights, batteries, generators and work gloves, among other things, which she plans to transport down south.Billy Layton is one of the people who helped after Sandy and now needs the goodwill to come back. He stayed in New Jersey for three years after the storm and helped rebuild homes.“I was a coordinator for a rebuilt site. We came up and rebuilt homes that had flood damage after the storm,” Layton, 61, said.On Friday morning, Layton and his family were awaiting Hurricane Florence.“We’re in Lumberton of North Carolina,” he said. “We’re just waiting [on the storm].”DeLucia said to her friends in the Carolinas that even though they’re going through difficult times now, the most important thing is to survive the storm and rebuild afterward.“They’re going to get through this,” she said. “We can replace everything but human life.”Layton, meanwhile, said he is pleased to see the people of New Jersey showing the same kindness he displayed years ago.“It’s very good to see people paying it forward,” Layton said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
