The pursuit of happiness….

I’m in the month of turning forty. I have always been a greedy girl and have stretched my birthday celebrations out for as a long as possible, usually a week, but as this year is a milestone and one that I was doubtful I’d achieve, I have made it extra long. So celebrations started last […]

Herpes to spark an immune response…..

Another week has passed and there’s not much to report. In the news, canSer is still cropping up with research about herpes being able to spark an immune response and they are now using it for certain trials and canSer types.

Letting go of the niggling thoughts…

Things are going really well on a day to day basis. It’s unreal that only last week I was having treatment in Germany. Thursday and Friday we got back into routine and began a new regime. Pete and I desperately need to feel better and that means making lifestyle changes. Pete wants weight loss and […]
