    Good Day To You All!

    Have been tied up with lots of appointments the last few weeks. My new Fibro clinic sent me for a sleep study which resulted in a barrage of heart and lungs tests. I'm still awaiting the results. The stress and worry of all that has made me a bit up and down like a yo-yo days. At least the...

    Do you trust alternative medicines?

    Like someone's said what do you consider alternative. I am suspicious of all treatment. Even doctors can be subsidised by pharmaceuticals. Vitamin and suppliment companies are as huge as them too. They are all, at the end of the day after your money. If they can convince you that you need it...

    Life partners & Care givers

    I have a both sides of the fence perspective. For twenty years I was the caregiver to my then husband. He had other medical conditions but it meant I had a lot of running around after him.
