So it’s been a while. My problem is there is so much corruption and incompetence that it just gets tiring. Priti Patel, Matt Hancock, Michael Gove, Dido Harding, Gavin Williamson and the big cheese, Boris Johnson. And nothing touches them. It’s just sad, that people in my country chose this. I am fed up. Some of them may be trying their best (I actually have my doubts about that) but they are not 5 year olds learning to write, they don’t deserve a treat for trying, they stood saying they were competent, that they could lead the country. If I was grading them it would be a F and see me after class…
So some links, not too much actual news because it’s all a steaming trash fire….

‘I usually end up calling an ambulance’: why migraine pain is not just a bad headache. Ma also sent this link to me, maybe because I’ve had a headache all week and this is often a precursor to a migraine for me. I don’t know why, I assume it’s because of the rising levels of progesterone at the moment because of when it occurs in my menstrual cycle. The best help I’ve had has been from the practice nurse at my doctor’s, she also has migraines and we talk about management of that, when I go in for an asthma check up.
