I've met women who are overdosing themselves on painkillers trying to manage their pain, who have to sit on black bin liners during their period to protect the sofa, who have been told at the age of 25 that the only solution is a hysterectomy - even one who was told by a consultant gynaecologist that it was normal to bleed for 15 days every month.
Current estimates suggests that OSAS is prevalent in over 15% of HGV drivers and in 2013 alone there were 1,713 fatal road traffic accidents. The large vehicles on our roads recorded more of these fatalities than any other vehicle type. OSAS remains a huge problem, but it is not one without a solution, and a 4 week one at that.
I always keep halloumi in the fridge since it has a long shelf-life. This recipe rewards experimentation. Try adding cucumber, pesto, oliveor basil instead of coriander etc. - whatever you fancy.
Awareness of stroke and its symptoms is going from strength to strength, looking at the success of the annual and well-recognisable F.A.S.T stroke campaign substantiates why this worthwhile activity must continue year on year.
Challenging children have challenging behaviour as does Morgan. He was a lamb really until bullying opened his eyes to being different. It made him realise he didn't fit in and he gets frustrated, upset and angry.
There are tons of round ups of Instagram fitness stars to follow, but depending on the publication and their reader's idea of the 'ideal body', the list is either all long and lean models or hard-core quads of steel body builders. Here are my suggestions of fitties to follow on Instagram now.
The NHS is spending £250 million on two of the first-generation proton beam machines, to be based in London and Manchester respectively, which are due to be operational before the end of 2018.
All this time only barely seeing the beauty of the world go by and getting time to take it all in. Always living by the routine that works so that when the weekend comes it can be used to party or visit the countryside although once there, it is more often than not bypassed as heading to a smaller city to have lunch and shop is more familiar.
I've tried so many different diets to heal this autoimmune disease that I'm embarrassed to even mention them any more. But, like I said, I'm only on an anti-inflammatory diet, not an anti-social one.
If you're untouched by such a condition; never judge people, treat everyone equally, understand these conditions, but never pity them, encourage government/media/corporate investment in removing the social barriers in our way, and simply help normalise disability.
Are we as women simply meant to throw on a leotard and hit up a step aerobics class armed with one pound weights for fear we will "bulk up"? It is really time to help move the conversation along.
Recovery is not a straightforward process. There are plenty of treatment options available (unfortunately at a price, but hopefully this will change...but they do exist), and some treatments are more appropriate for different types of eating disorders, others suit a person better.
My hope is that we can now harness this focus towards the furthering of our knowledge of autism through research. We urgently require evidence-based interventions for autism, but yet the standards of research to support interventions fall significantly below that of other medical conditions.
If you are taken ill on holiday, depending on the condition, you could see yourself being charged thousands and even hundreds of thousands of pounds for medical treatment and the cost of being flown home could cost up to £45,000 just for the ride!
