Dads are awkward people to but presents for at christmas time, they usually end up getting something mundane like socks, or a tankard, or slippers. Boring. So i put myself in his shoes, no easy task, im a size 5 and he is a size 13, and came up with a fab present! Like me, he has an interest i...

Just 5 weeks ago i went into hospital to have teeth removed. When i was born it was quite apparent that i was a bit poorly, i had no finger nails, toe nails, which was down to a calcium deficiency, and the cleft pallet. Eventually the finger and toe nails came, though they look shabby right no...

An Evening with Charlie Waite

After Ansel Adams, Charlie Waite is probably the most well known, best loved landscape photographers who has ever lived.

no evidence of psychosis

As some of you know, i went to my GP in december and told him about my gender identity issues, since then things have really moved apace, so swiftly.

No, not on some weird faddy diet, and no, its not the eating disorder. Been a tad poorly these past few days, no appetite, felt like...

Suddenly stopped working again. Cant seem to face it right now. Cant focus. There is more to my struggle than an eating disorder, and i think it is time to seek proper guidance, so in the new year i will be making an appointment with my GP to see whether or not i do have gender dysphoric issu...
