Friends Were There When I Needed Them!
Friends that offered a helping hand and offered cures for cancer are too many to mention. Here are a few for this story. The first thing I think of is when I came out of a respiratory code and was coming off of a respirator, I felt like I was being tortured. The mask over my face, a loud noise coming from near me, and then being strapped down in the bed. As I woke I was scared, until I heard a familiar voice of an old friend.
My heart is aching with such a putrid weight recently. Unfortunately, that is the nature of seasonal depression. The nights have drawn in, the darkness lingers longer than usual and my body begins to shut down in its entirety, with the exception of the constant whirring of my stomach and mind.
Living the Sweet Life
You know , it’s not really true what they say. I’ve heard that “What you don’t know won’t hurt you.” But it’s not true, not true at all. And I’ll throw in a bonus: Ignorance is NOT bliss, either!
We Don't Talk About Periods.
I feel like an experiment. They are testing me for something as if I am divergent or some other species, when in reality, I am a woman. I've tried five different birth control methods, including two IUDs, and the problems are not solved. Why do we not talk about this more? Are we meant to be whispering about this behind closed doors? Absolutely not! We need to know about our bodies, and we need to learn more.
How My First Fish Therapy Session Went
Fish symbolise emotions, and I do need to point out that fish therapy is actually illegal in some parts of the United States, as well as in Mexico, Canada, and in Europe. Fish Therapy (medically known as Ichthyotherapy, or the "holiday" term is a Fish Pedicure and/or a Fish Spa) originated in Turkey, where Garra rufa (toothless) fish have nibbled on the skin of Turkish people for well over 400 years now.
Some Thoughts on Running
This is the confession of an addict. I will admit that I have spent a lot of time not writing about my love of jogging, or running (both words mean different things to me; I will explain them later). Running was one of the things in my life that I came to completely under my own power. It was never something that I was encouraged to do. I never did track and field in school (never even made it onto a team of any kind). I saw no one in my family who enjoyed going for a run. And it was not something that I ever suspected would change my life.
Pints & Parkruns: Cosmeston Lakes
It doesn’t look it today, but Cosmeston Lakes is a reclaimed industrial site. Once, a series of cement quarries dominated what is now a country park. Today, though, it’s transformed. No hint of heavy industry remains and on a crisp, bright autumnal morning the birds emerge from the mist rising from the lake. It’s a scene to inspire thoughts of Celtic mysticism; Wales is the possible birthplace of King Arthur, and it’s not hard to imagine Geoffrey of Monmouth’s legends of Ladies in Lakes playing out right here.

Why Winter Weather Wrecks Kids' Health?
Introduction As the winter months approach, parents often notice a predictable yet frustrating pattern: their children seem to get sick more often. The cold weather itself isn't directly to blame for these illnesses, but it does create an environment that fosters the spread of viruses. Several factors contribute to this seasonal spike in childhood sickness, from the biology of pathogens to the way we behave when the temperature drops. In this article, we'll explore the reasons behind this phenomenon, providing insights into why children are particularly susceptible to getting sick in winter and offering advice on how to keep them healthier during these chilly months.
7 Home Remedies for Knee Pain
Usually, knee pain does not need any help from doctors and most people can manage it themselves. Many of the chronic issues related to knee pain can also be resolved with home treatments.
A Story Behind A Snack
So here I was sitting on a couch trying to unwind, while mom was buzzing around me like bee. The slow energy vibes of the room were being destroyed by the buzzing mother bee. Having had enough I stood up from the couch walked over to my mom, grabbed her arm and dragged her over to the couch.
Combating Laziness in Winters
Cycling indoors has also the advantage that it is low-impact, which makes it a safe alternative for people with joint problems, as it can help with joint flexibility. In addition to working out the glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, and calves of the lower body, it also works the upper body. As a final point, indoor cycling can be included as part of a larger fitness regimen. The exercise can be paired with strength training exercises in order to create a balanced workout routine. It can be used as a supplement to other cardio exercises, such as running or swimming, as it provides variety and prevents boredom during a workout.
United in Adversity
Once upon a time in a quiet town named Harmonyville, diverse families lived side by side, each with its own unique story. The town thrived on the principles of unity and community, but one day, an unexpected disaster struck, leaving the residents facing an unprecedented challenge.
I Don't Know Why I'm Here
I try to live a normal life. It always comes back to the confusion and depression, anxiety and grief. I feel trapped here, and I don't even know where "here" is. This is not the world I grew up in.
My Cancerous Experience With A Spiritual Healer
Background Five years ago, I was 23 years old and experienced a series of strange symptoms. I saw several specialists who ran tests and scans, which showed nothing. They assumed I was stressed and needed more rest.
The Final Members of the Radiant Youthful Crowd.
Tuesday, 18th October 1932 - Villa Santa Maria, Lisbon My dearest Herbert, I am delighted to hear that Mr. Ross is in good health. I sincerely hope he is not overexerting himself with his political endeavors. Mother insists that he should not be preoccupied with matters in the north when London is facing such dire circumstances. I must confess, we waited for more than half an hour for a porter to collect our luggage at the station. It baffles me why there are unemployed men when there is an evident demand for essential workers. However, let us set aside these political concerns, as pondering over them will surely drain my energy. Dolly Matthews claims that I worry excessively.
