I urge you to contact as many employment agencies as possible, put your needs to them, and make your enthusiasm an...

Hey Mrs G I haven't been here for a while myself - but I am so, so sorry to hear that you have not been so well. You are always so kind, it is disheartening that your boss is being selfish, when really the extra little bit he/she has to do is nothing compared to the struggle you have to go through -...

Hey Terry Just a quick comment. I don't really see how thi could be related to ms. However, having said that, I find it interesting that quite a few people with ms seem to have similar symptoms, myself included. Also don't think it is a panic attack - my old GP thought that based on what I described...

Bob, I can already feel the years slipping through my fingers - they were babies just yesterday, now they are little boys who want to do everything for themselves, sigh...Speaking of that, Lew, I get how you feel - as a Mum, my role is that of care-taker and nurturer, and although I still do most of...
