Epilepsy News: August 2017

There was a lot of news to choose from this month. Researchers have perhaps proved their abilities more than anyone, although the brave investigation of one man having brain surgery maybe gets my biggest shout. Another epileptic individual proved her worth by completing a hefty hike, and volunteers worked well to produce a secure shelter for children with epilepsy in the USA. Negatives can’t be ignored of course. Experts in America seemed pretty surprised and frustrated by a bigger than…

Labelling & Love Will Discharge What’s Old – Personal Review: August 2017

Labelling & Love Will Discharge What’s Old – Personal Review: August 2017

Welcome back; I hope you’ve enjoyed the last month of Summer. Although it wasn’t thrilling for me, I’ve not been bummed out by the spills of disappointment either.

Five Star Review: Another Family Classic

Five Star Review: Another Family Classic

After an untypically warm day in a British city, I made my way into Manchester with my mum and her partner Mike. I can’t remember doing that before, but as always, getting Manchester’s Metrolink into the city was the easiest way to travel. Dressed-up well, we jumped off at Deansgate-Castlefield and took our best guess on how to move towards the Museum of Science and Industry on Liverpool Road. We weren’t interested in going there though – the museum was…
