Leighton Meesters character becomes obsessed and controlling over Minka Kelly's character and she is described to have a personality disorder. The way it was portrayed many argue was wrong and far from the truth, with it showing further use of stigmatising footage against mental illness.

My brother wrote about his experience of having a sister with an eating disorder and it literally broke my heart into a million pieces. I wanted to share with you all his own words, because this is a family disease!

Parkinson's Is an Iceberg

The on-line Parkinson's community is a great way of connecting through the Internet with others in the same boat. I was truly touched by a new contact I made with a fellow Parkinson's sufferer. My article this week is about an ordinary Joe, just like you and me, except his name is Kendall Lay and he is far from ordinary.

Fear Less and Fearless

Fear! We all have fears, whether it's speaking in front of a crowd, the spider in the bedroom, heights, commitment, failure, success, rejection and the most famous one of all - fear of the unknown. When fear shows up, do you Forget Everything And Run (F.E.A.R)? Or do you Find Excuses And Reasons (F.E.A.R) to hide under the covers of life and stay right where you are?

While I'm all for being passionate and championing a cause, I also believe it must be said that along with any kind of activism must come a strong sense of peace and love.

The world is heating up in these past months, like never before, but it is not because of climate change only. Yes certainly we have now reached level of irreversibility that we were hoping they would never occur, but we have been silly about this for a prolonged period of time.

A gamut of life lessons are embedded within nature. What we as mortal flesh take for granted has the secrets to most of life's challenges. My inspiration and focus of this topic is from a garden, a nice beautiful garden.

As I walked along another Dublin street last week, exactly three decades later, I remembered that younger me. And I reached out, back in time, to him: to remember him, and to bring him into my mind and my heart as I headed into the Mansion House.

When you make a decision of any kind, you are sending a strong and powerful current into the universe. One of the best selling books of all time, The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho has this important message "and when you want something, the entire universe conspires to help you find it". It's true.

Life Is Not Black & White

Born with Gaucher disease and battling for the last eight years with Parkinson's, I became an advocate for both diseases. It may sound odd, but my ill health has taken me on a tremendous journey, one which I would never have dreamt of a few years back.

I'm not sure how I've kept running at such a pace, being an advocate for both Gaucher disease and Parkinson's and it's hardly surprising my batteries are on an all time low. I am driven with unstoppable passion and commitment.

Today, I ask you to do something. Write a bucket list. And start working towards crossing things off the list. Think about what you REALLY want out of life. And love yourself for the person you are.

The Power of Hope

The corporate sector must play a lead role in helping to change priorities, to save our planet and create more hope. But this can only be accomplished if individuals within the corporate sector, and for that matter the government sector, are willing to change their attitudes, not be overly greedy and consider what might be best for those most impacted, those living in poverty and asking "them", and civil society, what they want.

Can media represent us all? Can we find the real beauty that is a woman, that is a human being and celebrate her? Yes, we can. If we make the choice to expand our definition of beauty. If we as women say, we want to see the reality and not just the Photoshop.

No-one Is Broken, Only Lost

From around the age of nineteen, I considered myself a broken person; I was an alcoholic, a prostitute and was plagued by a crippling anxiety disorder. Little did I know that one day it would all be resolved, proving that nothing about me was broken, only lost.

Don't let anyone laugh at your dreams. Or let them tell you they can't become a reality. Sick or well. People used to laugh at me all the time, which is fine, some of my dreams seemed fairly ridiculous.

I've been having a ridiculously difficult time in recent weeks. Months, really. Okay, longer than that, but that's not the point. Lately, it's been especially hard and to be honest, I came apart last week, not something I do easily or often, let me tell you. To be honest, I can't remember when I last ended up in that terrible place.

I marvelled as I saw the tasty specimens with seemingly high IQs and smiles that would make mother buy a new hat. Except. Hold on. Those guys who had viewed my profile hadn't then contacted me. They'd checked me out, and obviously decided that actually no. No, they weren't interested...

So although like most people, I have a "bucket list" I decided being optimistic at heart, I would need to call my wish list something else that was more appropriate, and so I have a "Pink List". Why a "Pink List" you may well ask? Well if you are sitting comfortably then I'll tell you why pink became significant to me.

But once again, those responsible for the attack on the Boston Marathon made the same mistake that all terrorists throughout the ages have made. They did not count on the resiliency of the human spirit. Just as in New York on 9/11 and in London on 7/7, in the midst of all the chaos people have come together and have shown that community is not that easily broken.
