Vaccination is not a personal choice. It's a social obligation.
Refusing to vaccinate is not a statement of personal freedom, it's an endorsement that you're a selfish fucking prick.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the evidence shows Tamiflu to be as useful as taking an accordion deer hunting?
Vaccine refusal is part of this anti intellectualism being masked as personal freedom.
The hard thing we have to face now as a society? Empathy. Not a race to the Moon. Not winning a war. Just being decent to each other.
There is no vaccine debate. There's scientific fact. It matters fuckall if you don't believe it. IT'S STILL FUCKING FACT. Asshats.
There is a culture of anti intellectualism in America that needs to be fucking curb stomped to the shitcan of history.
Jesus H Christ on a rainbow shitting unicorn, the continued presence of fucking Tamiflu on the market pisses me off as much as non-vaxers.
So here's the moral of the story. The big score in medicine is not a cure, remission or a fix. The score is a CONNECTION. A CONVERSATION.
Waaahhhhhh, I don't want a statin. Wahhhh, I don't want insulin. Wahhhhhhh, I don't want vaccines. So get the fuck out of my practice.
This is a fucking paradox. People don't trust the flu shot but fucking beg me to get on Tamiflu prophylaxis? WHAT THE SHIT.
Nothing fucking sucks the life out of me more in medicine than having more fucks to give than the pt has to give to themselves.
Empathy is being able to fucking sit there and acknowledge there are streams of experience so different from yours but just as valid.
You thank a veteran for their service by making sure they have the necessary support to transition back to civilian life as best possible.
If someone can show me a study that correlates high PressGaney scores w/good outcomes in chronic disease, I am more fucking ears than Yoda.
You wanna support our troops? Stop voting for warmongering asshats who want to send them to horrid shitholes worldwide.
When people move into lower stress job environments, I have seen not just better BPs, but also lipids & even A1cs. All w/o change in rxs.
Medical advice? Seriously? Don't be a fucking asshat and complain about my tweets. Consider yourself warned. I am only served at 120% strength, IN YOUR FACE.
