Time: The Frustrating Truth

The concept of time is something that has bothered me for a long while. Some people even believe it to be the 4th dimension… what a load of rubbish. I know it seems quite harsh to say that it’s a load of rubbish but let me explain a little. Time is a purely social construct …

Fightback: Part 4 of n

Well it’s been a strange few days. I’ve been to a work capabilities assessment yesterday, and my god it was draining. Just about two and a half hours talking medical history going as in depth as we could. I think the hardest thing about it was saying certain things out loud. Such as the lack …
