So, maybe you have spent the last 24 hours rage typing to people on social media. Getting your blood pressure and stress levels up. Let me ask, has it helped? Have you damaged relationships? Would those relationships have been there for you when you really needed them? Would they have been there to help you up when you are down?

Oftentimes we find it easier to go off on someone on social media than to their face, and we can damage relationships that way. Maybe you need to take a break, but you really want to go back and see how they responded to your last comment. If you find yourself struggling with a break, but recognize that you need one, here are a few suggestions.

1. You can deactivate an account for a bit. This isn't the same as deleting it.
2. You can snooze someone for 30 days.
3. You can disable the app so that you can only see it on a computer, taking away the convenience of logging on is a great way to ease up.

Not a site I normally share form but this is a great message. There is nothing wrong with sadness and it is very healthy for a person to be allowed to process it.

We shouldn't have to hide our pain. Please understand that sometimes we need room to be able to process our pain and sadness. It is hard enough for us to do it but even harder when there is added external pressure. Reach out!! You matter!!

Some great advice as you celebrate the departure of 2020. Most people have noisemakers and horns for midnight, don't be the one to start it with a taser....or a DWI.

Plan ahead and plan your New Year’s Eve celebration wisely.
Designate a sober driver before the party starts.

New Year Celebration and Safe Alcohol Consumption

So, 2020 is finally coming to an end, as the shortest/longest year any of us has experienced in our lifetimes. It has challenged us in many ways and many people are going to want to celebrate its departure (understandably). But we still need to be safe because the last thing we want to do is begin the new year with new problems and our drinking can lend to that. So Tom, Nicole and I have a discussion on safer drinking.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the ASAP Family to yours. Wherever you may be in the world, with or away from family. We hope you enjoy your Christmas.

As we enter the holiday season, a lot of people tend to look at social media and compare celebrations, gifts exchanged and all kinds of other areas of their lives, but is this healthy. Nicole, Tom and I talk about that a bit.

As we approach the holidays, let us continue to look out for each other and provide immediate help when it's needed. Suicide is a problem across the country and we have to be on belay for our battle buddies. If you think someone you know is considering suicide, please intervene.
1. Ask them if they're considering suicide
2. Care for them by being there
3. Escort them to help if needed

As we #ClimbToGlory remember that #NobodyClimbsAlone

Fort Drum Medical Activity

You may have heard the FDA has recently authorized Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the COVID-19 vaccine. Understandably, some might have a lot of questions as MTFs begin administering the vaccine to beneficiaries.

Initial doses of the vaccine have gone to 16 selected sites across the DOD to test distribution and vaccination plan execution policies. Once the controlled pilot results are validated, the DOD will then begin shipping the vaccine to other locations across the services.

While the vaccine is still in EUA status, the vaccine will be completely voluntary. Vaccinations will occur on a phased schedule based on prioritized populations beginning with healthcare providers, healthcare support, emergency services, and public safety personnel. As the vaccine becomes more available, it will be provided to more of the population.

It is still unknown when Fort Drum will receive the vaccine. Receipt of the vaccine will be based on priority and the results of the controlled pilot. However, once vaccines are shipped to Fort Drum, distribution will follow the phased priority plan outlined by the DOD, consistent with data-driven CDC guidance for national prioritization.

Stay tuned as we will publish more information in the coming weeks with updates and additional information.

For more information on the COVID-19 vaccine, distribution plan, and frequently asked questions, go to https://go.usa.gov/xAC5z.

The holiday season is the second-deadliest time of year for Army private motor vehicle mishaps, which often involve alcohol and other indisciplined behaviors like speeding and failure to wear a seat belt. If you drink, don’t drive, and if you drive, don’t drink.

Last weekend was not a good weekend for DWIs. We can do better. Every time someone drives drunk they are putting you, your family, my family at risk and to be honest, what kind of warrior does that? 10th Mountain is not a place for the Average Soldier (just look outside). We can and must do better.

Fort Drum Army Substance Abuse Program - ASAP

Dr Benham from Fort Drum Behavioral Health joins our ASAP Specialist, Bill, to talk about talking to each other. ♥️

Let's be honest, this Christmas is going to be different than any other, most of us can remember. With travel restrictions, quarantines, and various other things that will interfere with our holiday routine, we may be facing challenges that keep us from getting together. So with that in mind, I sat down with Dr. Benham of Fort Drum behavioral health to discuss loneliness. Of as my coworkers dubbed it, Bill and Todd's Excellent Adventure, and while it has been anything but excellent, the advice is still good. "Be excellent to each other."

Special Topic Tuesday

Welcome to our new Special Topic Tuesday. Today Tom, Nicole and I are talking about anger. It is the season of joy, but you may notice in 2020, more than ever, it is the season of being angry. There are a lot of legitimate things to be angry about, and quite a few that are just not worth it. How to handle it when you do get angry is important.

For those who don't know, December is 3D month. No that doesn't mean the cool glasses at the movies that will make you nauseous as a Tie fighter comes out of the screen (or old school cheesy Jaws, if you remember that). 3D month is Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month. December has historically had the highest rate of drunk and drugged drivers, due to celebrations. The time between Christmas and New Year’s sees an average increase in fatalities involving alcohol impaired drivers by 34%. So here is some helpful info for you to prevent damaging your finances, career or worst of all, SOMEONE'S LIFE.

Good Morning, in this month's edition of the Ready Now Bulletin we address some high risk areas for the holidays as well as some of the concerns with the return of teleworking, travel restrictions and physical distancing measures. Please share this with your Leaders as it can give them some talking points during safety briefs as well as things to check on when doing Leader's checks on Soldiers that they may not have direct visibility of during these times.

Look, we all know this year's holiday meals will be slightly more challenging. Between potential political conversations and COVID conversations. It is going to be stressful. Someone is going to bring it up. There are a few things you can do though.

1. Set boundaries. If you don't want to discuss politics, you are not under any social requirement to do so. There is something to be said for leaving the room or saying goodbye on a phone call before relationships are damaged.

2. Try to understand other people's struggles and why they may feel the way they do. You may not agree with them, but understanding why they feel the way they do, humanizes them.

3. Remember, they are still your family at the end of the day.
