A Long Road to Health

Health Journey

The journey to health is a long and winding road (thanks Beatles), but it’s well worth the trip. It’s been quite some time since I’ve written anything here.

Here’s my story (remember, it’s my story and not medical advice). I’m well within my menopause years and had suffered from my… Read More

Hot

Come along on this journey for a moment. Imagine this: You’re sitting in a business lunch meeting with a bunch of young chippies (definition of young chippie – anyone younger than you by more than 10 years).
