I've blogged for a while...mostly moaning about life, living with the hellish depression and anorexia I've battled for so long. I come across on the blog probably as moody and not a very happy friendly person, but people who know me in real life rarely see that side of me and see me as quite a cheery person who likes to make others laugh. I want to be that person all the time, but anorexia...

Hi, I've long thought about ways to merge physical activity in with a busy daily lifestyle. Many of us just don't have the time to exercise as we should do with our busy schedules. So, a few years ago I decided to pretty much drop public transport to my work place and replace it with running to work! I've found it such a benefit to my lifestyle that I've decided to put together an...

Somewhere around November 18th or 19th of 2007, I started feeling what I thought were Carpal Tunnel symptoms in my right hand. The symptoms included: tingling of my fingers, numbness, and I was having trouble typing. I went out and bought wrist guards, and things designed to help CT patients. The symptoms continued for about two weeks and I promised I?d visit the doctor after Thanksgiving....
