Fun fact about American health care: if I ever need an organ transplant, I’ll somehow have to hide my autism, depression, and anxiety from the doctors, or else I’ll be disqualified under ideas about quality of life. It’s really great to know how valued disabled and neurodivergent lives are.

So here’s a thing many people don’t know about me: I used to be a medical data analyst. (I still do it occasionally, but not as a full-time job.) It’s a pretty self-explanatory job: I took data - often in enormous datasets - and analyzed it to find patterns. (Obviously, we couldn’t associate these with individual patients; this was just after HIPAA had come into effect, and so this data was very heavily scrubbed to remove any identifiable information.)

One of the patterns I looked for was quality of life and quality of care for people with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI). For our purposes, that meant major depression, bipolar disorder, general anxiety disorder, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, and “other SPMI” (I encourage you to not send me messages telling me how those categories are terrible, because a) it was ten years ago and b) I wasn’t in charge of the categories.) In particular, we looked at injury, illness, and death in people with SPMI, compared with the general population, while they were in the hospital and at certain intervals after they were released (30 days, 60 days, 90 days, 180 days, and 1 year).

People with severe and persistent illness were much more likely to become ill and/or die in the hospital or shortly after discharge than the “general population”. People with schizophrenia had nearly ten times the deaths while in the hospital, and twelve times the injuries and illnesses.

Just as telling were the notes associated with the patient records. There was a significant pattern in the terminology used. In patients in the “general population”, doctors tended to use the word “is”: for example, “patient is suffering from abdominal cramping”. In patients with SPMI, doctors tended to use the phrase “claims to be”: for example, “patient claims to be suffering from abdominal cramping”.

It was clear to us that medical professionals - in general, I know for a fact that there are doctors out there who don’t do this - were assuming that patients with severe and persistent mental illness were inventing some, if not all, of their symptoms - that the symptoms were not real, and therefore did not need to be treated.

And because of that, these patients were falling ill and dying at alarming rates.

This isn’t personal anecdotes. I spent more than a year analyzing this data - which came from actual hospitals in the United States - and finding these patterns. There’s a problem here.

(I would prefer not to give out the name I was using then in public here, but if you’re interested, message me privately and I’ll see if I can get you links to the articles.)


I love that Dalinar basically ordered the Stormfather into bonding him and I’m really hoping that in the future the Stormfather will be just the snarkiest, most passive-aggressive dweeb to Dalinar ever.


We know that harry and Dudley got together on holidays and it was strained but they still did it

And I just love that so much

After the war, Harry coming to the Dursleys and explaining that they’re free now and briefly telling Dudley what happened

Harry insisting that a telephone be kept in the house do Dudley can contact him if he needs

Dudley going to uni and he grows up a bit, in the same way that James did, and like he always retains some level of jerkishness but, as cs lewis would say, the cure had begun

Dudley having a girlfriend who cannot freaking stand his parents and really opens his eyes bc she’s like no Duds that’s not normal parental behavior

Dudley getting over his fear of magic, just a little, and he’s not going to ask Harry about it but he can hear the word wizard without flinching and some of it’s actually very interesting

Ginny and Dudley interacting can you imagine she wouldn’t sugarcoat anything and they go out to dinner and harry excuses himself to go to the restroom and she says ‘you were a complete ass to harry’ and ‘I know’ but she considers him and decides to maybe give him a chance, for Harry’s sake, and tells him so, but that if he messes Harry over she’ll give him a piggy tail again

God basically these two learning from their mothers and being in basically the same rolls but getting over their respective issues, at least enough to see each other a few times a year

Coming to each other’s respective weddings. Dudley being at his mums and finding Harry’s crumpled wedding invitation in the rubbish bin, getting pissy and announcing that he’s going, and he does, and it’s overwhelming and everyone knows who he is but they’re all very polite and he gets roaring drunk with this bloke who plays some sport and he’s hilarious and there’s a little boy whose hair keeps changing and Harry treats him like a son and the Weasleys mean so much to Harry and he sees that and it’s, again, an eye opener for Dudley

Harry comes to his wedding-Ginny, too-and she doesn’t let go of his hand and they shake hands and Dudley tells Harry that he’s glad they could come and Ginny and his wife are both no nonsense kind of girls and they actually click

Ginny and Harry hosting their first big holiday meal and suggesting that they invite Dudley and his wife, too

They spent holidays together so I’m guessing that means Dudley’s wife knew about magic

Their children interacting with each other is just an amazing thing

I need more of this
