I felt very honored to have been invited by UW Medicine Advancement to speak in front of some of UW Medicine's biggest donors yesterday. The food by Tom Douglas was great, and getting to check out the Ellisons' giant Mercer Island estate was a wild experience. Definitely the fanciest party I will ever go to in my life. #uwmedicine #celebratescholarships #match2017 #uwsom

🐾 University of Washington/ UW Medicine scientists and researchers, led by Dr. Matt Kaeberlin and Dr. Daniel Promislow, are studying how dogs age. Their goal is to improve the length and quality of dogs' lives. If you live in the U.S. and are interested in participating in their studies* or making a donation to fund their research, visit: www.uwhealthyaging.org/dog-aging to learn more! 🖖🏻 📊*One study is longitudinal, open to all breeds and ages. The other study is a FDA-approved drug trial focused on middle age dogs.
🗒Please note: I'm not currently affiliated with this project. My human read about it online and filled out the form to participate in the longitudinal study. She thinks it's a good cause, and she wants me to live fur-EVER. 💜💛 #uw #uwmedicine #dogagingproject #caninescientists #geroscience #livelongandprosper

Fresh pedicure for knee replacement surgery. Need to get a lot done since I'll be unable to drive for 4 weeks. Omg. It will be almost fall by then.

O Captain! My Captain! .
.
Something bothered me about every psychiatrist until I found my forever-doctor. No longer skeptical that this was even possible, I left our first appointment truly optimistic. He was the real deal.
.
.
My thoughts on my previous doctors follow as such:
.
Psych Ward Doc: ugly boots, arrogant, Bully Doctor. .
Recovery Center Docs: minimal attention to me, Ghost Doctors.
.
San Francisco Doc: office looked like a start-up, vacant demeanor, Cyborg Doctor.
.
Hometown Doc: cool, knowledgeable, relatable.... My Doctor.
.
.
His office is quant and comfortable, nothing over-the-top but still nice with calm paintings of boats and such. His presence is welcoming and professional. He pays close attention and speaks carefully, which makes me want to listen. The things that he says have merit. They work. He uses a whiteboard sometimes to make lists or draw charts, pictures. I always leave with a framework for how to think about things, tools to help me navigate troubled water.
.
.
Medication regulation is a component of my treatment but not all of it. He makes sure I get my Lithium tested once in awhile. I go to a lab, a nurse takes my blood, and they test it. At the beginning it was often as we figured out the best dose. Even with getting off of Zyprexa, introducing lorazepam for anxiety attacks, or trying low-dose antipsychotics for hypomania, I have always felt like we were in it together...Committed to finding solid ground.

Thank you to the dedicated psychiatrists, psychologists, students and others working in the psychiatric field. We need your to help to guide us home, it's not possible without you 🌊⛵️💕

💙 I have a new little nephew on the way! However he has quite the fight ahead of him. Baby Mounter has been diagnosed with Congenital Pulmonary Airway Malformation and has a high risk for heart failure. Laura and Jon Mounter are already wonderful parents and this baby is being brought into our world with such love and strength. We are hoping to lessen the financial burden that they are feeling as doctor bills add up and maternity & paternity leave is unpaid for by their employers. They are currently making weekly trips to UW Medical Center to closely monitor baby and will relocate to Seattle around 36 weeks. Baby Mounter is guaranteed to have surgery, if not emergent, within the first year of his life. Once Baby Mounter has arrived we want to make sure both mom and dad can be home to care for him in those early weeks without stress for lack of paychecks. Any amount that you can give will help, even if all you can is a prayer or kind thought! See link in bio for donations!
