https://interestingengineering.com/how-exactly-does-chemotherapy-work I visited my best friend today. She is 79 years old and has just gone through the fourth round of six chemotherapy treatments for Leukemia. Her life today is not good. She’s losing weight, she’s feeling tired, she’s anxious and depressed. That’s understandable, you may be thinking, and you’d be right! But she isn’tContinue reading “No Excuse for Depression!”
I was sixteen years old when my boyfriend told me ‘There is no God!’ He was studying at University and had been enlightened, by his new friends, to the doctrine of ‘exestentualism’ (sic) Thats exactly what he told me in one of his letters which I still have to this day.

https://humanperformancepsychology.com/ lots of helpful ideas here! Now I know why I’ve put off doing a blog for such a long time. The Internet definitely brings out the worst in a lot of people. I’ve been maligned, ridiculed and negatively criticised for daring to disagree with someone else’s opinion! The Internet provides the bullies of thisContinue reading “Internet – good or evil part two 👺🧖🏿♀️”

http://www.youtube.com/watch This video is as funny today as when it was first aired. Now I find my generation are spouting the same nonsense to the young. On the other hand I have friends on social media who constantly pontificate about how wonderful things were when we were kids. Selective memories through rose tinted specs…
