The new GP last week said to me, rather obviously I thought, you need to get more sleep. And then prescribed Circadin - a hormone called melatonin that your body naturally produces when you're asleep. The theory being, supplementation tricks your body into going to sleep. Well, in the last week I don't think my insomnia … Continue reading In-som-ne-yaaaa
Life has been feeling a little serious lately. I'm not sure why, but there's a lot going on. I'm about to resign from my job, torn between staying and hoping 'things' settle down and leaving and embarking on a new (yawn) journey. I keep finding myself remembering a few months ago, when life was a … Continue reading Things could be worse
Actually I've never had a definite diagnosis before so this is A diagnosis. The Christmas break and some annual leave gave me time to think and to notice adverse reactions to food and alcohol. I came to the conclusion this is enough now. In my endless searching online last year I had come across a … Continue reading A new diagnosis

But like last night, looking back at the writing I realise it had nothing to do with what's actually on my mind at the moment. What's on my mind? Time. … Continue reading os

Let's see, what have I done this week? Said no to a promising new job because of the 4-day induction training course in Sydney. Said no … Continue reading Rambles
On Ch.7's morning show Sunrise yesterday, I watched a segment asking if giving up gluten was actually harmful for you. It featured angry coeliacs' defending their life-threatening aversion to gluten and a scientist whose words were muddled by the hosts, ending up with a story chastising people who give up gluten as jumping on the bandwagon.
