Breast Cancer Support: Social Media Twitter Chat, #BCSM

Breast Cancer Support: Social Media Twitter Chat, #BCSM | Evolution of data and health issues | Scoop.it
Are you looking for support after a breast cancer diagnosis? Are you looking for support years after that diagnosis? Are you a caregiver or loved one looking for others with similar experiences in supporting a person with a breast cancer diagnosis? Finding that support is as easy as joining Twitter. Weekly Breast Cancer Twitter Chat Since July 4, 2011, a Tweetchat (Twitter Chat) called #BCSM has met every Monday night at 9pm ET on the Twitter social media network. The “#” is called a hashtag and is used by Twitter to designate group conversations, or group tweets. #BCSM stands for Breast Cancer Social Media group.

Alicia is a three-time cancer survivor, while Jody has learned in the last year that she has metastatic breast cancer. Alicia is really the driving force for the chat’s beginnings.

When I couldn't sleep, I could pick up my phone and start tweeting. There was someone always there to respond. That provided a great deal of comfort and support to have this ‘lifeline’ or link to the real world while in the hospital.” Jody describes meeting Alicia on Twitter. She says, “I wanted to get to know the woman with the awesome, joyful avatar who signed off every evening by tweeting, ‘Good night, and John-Boy.’” Jody recalls, “’You know,’ [Alicia] said to me during our first phone call, ‘I think we are about the same things.’ And that was indeed the case.  We were both interested in how social media could be used to enhance cancer survivorship in general and breast cancer survivorship in particular.” Alternative Breast Cancer Support Prior to Twitter, both founders utilized in-person support groups. Diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1991 during her sophomore year of college, Alicia “… felt I was too young for the adult cancer survivor support group that was held at the hospital where I was receiving treatment…I felt very out of place, with an age difference of over 25 years between me and the next youngest participant in the group….” Without the [...]

Liking Work Really Matters

But while we know intuitively that tasks we find interesting can feel effortless, what does it actually do to our mental gas tank? Can interest help us perform our best without feeling fatigued?

 

Research by psychologists Paul A. O'Keefe and Lisa Linnenbrink-Garcia of Michigan State University, which were recently published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, suggests that it can.

Being interested in a task is essential to being good at it.

It does. When I went into the classroom, it was a place of great creativity for me. As time progressed and School managers decided they knew more than those who inhabited the classroom ecosystem. it was harder to enjoy what we did in the classroom.
