Good morning TPC! We are excited to launch the TPC Doctor's Lounge where we can come together and have conversations on a platform created by doctors and owned by us -- TPC! Every time we create content and posts on social media we are giving away our intellectual property and ownership to big tech companies. Now, we have the opportunity to come together and own our content and data. Join TPC today and let's work together and create solutions that work for us! - TPC Board Member

#Social #Anxiety can be very stressful for children and can prevent them from making friends and performing well in school. Never hesitate to bring your child to the #Pediatrician or #ChildPsychiatrist if you notice him/her to be sad, not have friends in school, or have difficulties with academic performance. A proper evaluation can help make the correct diagnosis, determine the best treatment, and set him/her on the path to good #Mental #Health and fulfilling life experiences.
The term #ElectionStressDisorder has been used to address the #Anxiety that almost #TWO #THIRDS of #Americans feel during the current election process. If severe, it could actually lead to #Depression. My professional advice is to:
*Try your very best to continue with a healthy balance in your daily life, that includes family time, work and an exercise routine.
*Try also to catch up with friends and family, and *Consider reducing the amount of time spent watching TV and on various social media platforms.
Today I want to share important information about #NARCOLEPSY. This is a medical condition characterized by frequent daytime sleepiness or drowsiness. It can lead to serious social and physical consequences for the patient, such as not being able to stay awake in class or falling asleep while driving. If you or a loved one may be suffering for narcolepsy, please visit your Internal Medicine physician for proper evaluation and management. They can prescribe selective stimulants and medications known as SSRIs that can help manage this condition.
This is an eye opener regarding the power and potential ills of social media! The social dilemma. At myDoqter, we aim to use the power of social media to heal.
