Bless Our NHS

But damn the Tories and Branson. As I sat in A&E, at 7am, on Tuesday, doubled in pain, I look up and see the wait time list, 10 hours. Now luckily for me I guess, I’m not here with a break, I’m here with internal pain around my stomach and gall bladder and having hadContinue reading “Bless Our NHS”

Such sorrow in Family Values

There was a young man who unfortunately married the wrong woman. He suffered years of abuse and when he found the strength to leave his parents picked up his shattered heart and life and gave him all they had to rebuild his life.

Just when you think life’s getting better, your routine which you count on so much for your own personal sanity is turned upside down. Your home no longer feels the clean tidy safe place it usually is. You are sharingContinue reading “Ramblings of a fraught mind”

The dangers of self help videos

When you suffer a traumatic experience at the hands of someone else, it’s natural to want to know why. Usually people will think it over, talk to friends or maybe even a counsellor and be satisfied that people are so complex, so different in thought patterns and feelings that a simple answer will suffice.
