An update on life, death, babies and boyfriends.

It’s been so long and I have so much to update you on, I will try to keep this in some type of format and not make it too boring! 1) Dad Last month I wrote about how the hormone treatment for my dads prostate/bone cancer was no longer working, and that he needed chemotherapy. […]

200 Followers! Thanks Guys!

Never in a million years, when I started this blog, did I think I would still be writing it now, nearly 2 years later, have over 67 thousand hits, and over 200 followers! During the time I have been writing the blog, I have been on such a journey. The blog has changed from my […]

Body dysmorphic or just plain ugly?

Why is the National Health Service so bad?

I know I should be grateful that in this country we get free healthcare (although when you think about it it isn’t completely free as we pay for it through taxes) but I am starting to feel completely let down by the NHS. I had an appointment this afternoon with a psychiatrist but Karen the […]
