So back in January, I learnt I had a tubo-ovarian abscess, and there was a plan to treat. I had 3 weeks of 2 types of antibiotics, and then a week after they finished, I went for a scan of Madame O. The antibiotics had done nothing. Not a thing. Zilch. Nada. For my ovary … Continue reading And the Madame Ovary saga goes on…
An update to the blog post from yesterday, if you're interested. This has also been done as a Twitter thread. I actually think my experience shows very much that we still need to change so much in our approaches to women's health. I got a call last night from our Women's Hospital. Turns out I … Continue reading Madame Ovary
I did this as a Twitter thread originally, but decided to stick it all together in a blog too. It's still in Twitter format though - makes it easy to read, imo.

But this morning, I think something may have changed. I have followed and read the work of James (JJ) … Continue reading Protest and Prepare

I believe I was one of 25% of women who was subjected to it by the father of our children. Five years on, and it … Continue reading Child alienation
Bloody EU Referendum
23rd June 2016 we have this cursed (read that as cursED please) EU Referendum. The longer the campaign has gone on, the less I want to hear about it. Except I am listening to, and watching, and reading various news channels and articles, and blog posts. It's like a morbid fascination. Or a scab you … Continue reading Bloody EU Referendum
