We are 5 days away from #Bleedthegongdry Vampire Cup 2017 WUMSS. This is a real story of a medical student who needs blood donation every week to remind us how our donations really #save3lives.
Join our event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1582081135144527/ #linkinbio #VC17: “I am a medical student but I am also a lifelong blood recipient. Every week it takes about two hours to self-infuse my blood product, which is made from the plasma of over 1000 Australian blood donors.
Very few people in medicine know that I depend on blood each week but it doesn’t matter who I am. What matters is that when you donate blood, you never know who you may help or whose life you may change.
Several months ago I received incredible news. After five long years of aggressive treatment, I have avoided permanent lung damage. This seemed impossible after years of deterioration and hospitalisations while waiting to qualify for immunoglobulin treatment, as blood is such a limited resource in Australia.
Without this blood product, my future was bleak. I was 20 and facing a life of progressive deterioration, the prospect of needing a transplant and a shortened life expectancy. My untreated immune deficiency was threatening my dream career in medicine. Blood has given me back my future and I’m so thankful for it.
Please consider donating, we really need it and I hope all blood donors know how much your donation means. I am so grateful. It really is life changing.”
Vampire Cup begins in ONE WEEK and is running until the 17th September! Book your appointment today at www.donateblood.com.au or ask your VC rep for a group booking slot.
Fill in a #Red25 form at the donor centre (or mobile blood van) and under organisation name put in #WUMSS to make your donation count!

The Australian Medical Association has committed to safer working hours for doctors since the 1900s. The pentennial 2016 AMA Safe Hours Audit reveals limited improvement since the last report in 2011. Full report: https://ama.com.au/article/2016-ama-safe-hours-audit

2016 #AMASafeHoursAudit shows that:
► One in two doctors (53 per cent) are still working rosters that put them at significant and higher risk of fatigue to the extent that it could impact on performance, effect the health of the doctor and the safety of the patient. This number has not changed since 2011. ► Registrars appear to be at particular risk with 59 per cent working rosters that place them at significant and higher risk of fatigue compared to 49 per cent of Interns/RMOs and 47 per cent of CMO/Consultants. ► The number of Interns/RMOs working in the higher risk category has also increased by 11 per cent in 2016 compared with the 2011 report.

@sydvention This is my story, @jordanraskopoulos /People think [transition] is a choice between male and female, but it is a choice between self acceptance and oblivion. Trans or die. [on @sydneyMardiGras and Pride month]
Pride is the opposite of shame.
The journey of trans people is often a journey from shame to pride, with acceptance in the middle.
that is why we should never stop having Mardi Gras.

We must continue to match to help those who are still struggling.

that others live their lives without feeling ashamed or the pressure to feel ashamed
Everything that has been achieved can be lost if we take it for granted [on cis/trans labels]

I like being trans.
Being trans has allowed me to help people and I am so so proud.

I want you to think about [the labels]
if we want to be equal we have to think about it too.

If you only acknowledge the sameness in each other, you will begin to marginalise someone who isn't. . .
