Be compassionate to yourself
Friday, March 01, 2019      3 comments

Was reading a book that mentioned an obesity study from 15 or 20 years ago (or maybe a bit longer than that) The doctor who was running the study was seeing the same pattern repeat in a large number of his patients - - they would lose substanti... Read more
Fantasy - it's all in my head
Wednesday, February 13, 2019      3 comments
