London is a magnificent city - few places can boast the same cultural and social variety that is on offer in our capital.

As Parkinson's (or any serious illness) progresses, it's easy to lose one's self confidence. When I was first diagnosed I immediately came across several people who had been living with Parkinson's for some years and therefore had already experienced many of the stages and symptoms that occur as the disease advances.

The latest research shows that the concept of detoxing is deeply flawed at best - and at worse actually harmful. You see the liver cleanses and detoxes itself on a daily basis and is pretty damn efficient at doing its job.

I've often been told 'aren't you a little overdressed?' and I wonder why it would matter. As Oscar Wilde said: "You can't be overdressed or overeducated".
