WHY FEMINISM IS BAD?
First part Amelia and Abigail, old friends with differing views on feminism, found themselves engrossed in a spirited debate within the cozy confines of a local coffee shop. The aroma of freshly brewed coffee wafted through the air as they settled into plush armchairs, each armed with their convictions.
The PCOScience of Food
When you have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (thereafter known as PCOS within this article), your biggest struggle after getting your diagnosis is managing your weight.

No Name The pig truck swayed in the lane in front of me, tires careening close to the gravel edge of the road and swaying back to the dotted white line. I'd already driven alongside the truck, checking for pigs. Sure enough, I'd seen the thick pink skin sticking out, cut and bleeding, as it chafed against the sharp metal air holes.

And I am sure 100% of women who have a hormonal imbalance that causes weight gain have been basically told by the doctor to “just lose weight.”
PCOS = Painful Cramps On Steroids

But also really proud of all the brave women who are willing to share their stories and the pains they endured to comfort Crawford and let her know she wasn't alone.

Can ADHD Really Work In The Workplace?
Let’s face it, traditional societal norms can make neurodivergent people feel like total outsiders. From school, we are encouraged to fit our unique brains into standardised boxes, and this mentality has unfortunately continued into the workplace.
