MS week 29/04/2013

datingsider for aleneforeldre The week beginning the 29th April is MS week. MS stands for Multiple Sclerosis and it is the intention of the ‘MS Society‘ to really get the public interested and educated about Multiple Sclerosis. Raising awareness of such conditions makes the symptoms easier to understand if you know someone who suffers from the condition. It may also help those who are presenting with the effects of MS to better understand the new research that is going on and to help you cope better with the physical and mental impact of the disease. Multiple Sclerosis is a neurological condition that...

IBS Awareness month

flirtseiten kostenlos The month of April is IBS awareness month (irritable bowel syndrome) and helps to raise the profile of this, often, debilitating condition.

But will this actually deter the youngsters. Will making the packets a little more taboo, increase or decrease the sale of tobacco to youngsters? Well, one would have to ask, is it the...

Frank Bruno mental illness fight

  Frank Bruno’s fight with mental illness has been a very public battle, much as Paul Gascoine’s battle with alcohol. But anything that raises public awareness of issues such as these are always welcome in my opinion. Frank is often heard stating that his battle with his mental health has been the hardest battle of his life. To help him win this battle he certainly needs more help, and he took steps to raise the awareness by visiting the Houses of Parliament and the health minister Norman Lamb. Mr Lamb had invited Frank along to hear first hand, all about his battle so...

How to get the depressed mind motivated!

    When we feel depressed, we feel deflated and de-energised and so it is natural to feel very demotivated, it can be a real challenge. Not only does depression affect the mind it also affects the body, leaving the sufferer feeling exhausted. You know there are things needed to be done, but somehow the will to carry them through doesn’t exist and even the small tasks seem to be too much to take on. To some, even getting out of bed, getting showered and dressed can all seem very challenging. People who suffer from depression often avoid the activities that they used to enjoy...
