Living With Migraines

Living with migraines can be a difficult challenge. Almost one-third of migraine sufferers experience moderate to severe disability. The head pain and other migraine symptoms make it difficult for many to function during attacks. Migraines are a leading cause of disability around the globe. Despite that, half of those with migraines aren’t under a doctor’s care for the condition.

Migraines impact almost every facet of a sufferer’s life, and people with migraine or severe headaches are even at increased risk for suicide.

If I Won The Magic Numbers

For some unknown reason, my already pretty bad spending habit ( I'm a spender not a saver) has got out of control! It's like I just keep seeing things I like and have absolutely no will power. Now this spending spree would be fine if a) we had a massive pay increase b) hadn't just started building our dream house and should be literally be eating bread and water or c) if I had a lucky lotto windfall.

QUIT SMOKING AND START VAPING

There’s a lot of talk about the many benefits people enjoy when they make the switch from smoking regular tobacco cigarettes to vaping electronic cigarettes. But before you choose a vapid, such as Vape AYR you know that changes can start immediately?

8 HOURS

8 hours after you quit smoking, your body will begin improving. In fact, within these first few hours is when the very first noticeable effect of no longer smoking is seen: the amount of oxygen in your blood will begin to return to normal levels, even if you’re already vaping.

This is possible because the vapour that’s produced by our electronic cigarette doesn’t contain any carbon monoxide, which is found in tobacco cigarettes. This gives your body the opportunity to begin detoxifying the carbon monoxide that you had inhaled so that you can enjoy a greater amount of oxygen in your blood, and this means you will feel better in many other ways as well.

Corduray……Why The Love Affair Continues Through Generations

CORDURAY It may be most closely associated with the ’70s, but the ribbed fabric’s pedigree goes back many centuries.

Autumn has returned—calendrically, anyway—and with it a host of seasonal, perennial favorites. Football graces once again our Sundays, rakes are pulled from the backs of old sheds, and as warmer clothes are rescued from under the bed, a beloved fabric makes its triumphant return: corduroy. The sweetest zip-zip sound two thighs will ever make.

Corduroy’s roots are in the ancient Egyptian city of Al-Fustat. Located near the Nile river, the city became something of a ground zero of tough woven fabrics around the second century.

Worried About Money?

It might not be December just yet, but that doesn’t mean that a lot of us parents aren’t already stressing about Christmas.

Nursing As A Career, A World Of Choices

 IMG_6727

 

"Nurses….Jack of all trades,Master of none" well I concur, yes we are jack of all trades but we can absolutely be masters of them all too.

 

One of the greatest aspects of nursing as a profession is the ability to work in many types of environments and in many different roles. It is a field which is constantly evolving. For me, I've done a mixture of jobs and many post graduate courses, but over the last 14 years I have primarily worked in Emergency departments between Edinburgh, London and Ireland. It's where my nursing heart lies, but I've always been keen to develop skills and dip my toes in other roles from time to time.

Loose fitting clothing can easily get caught in bikes and other exercise equipment if you are not careful.
