Change causes all kinds of anxiety, it isn’t that I don’t like change – to the contrary nothing makes me feel like I am progressing like a change in routine. Delving into the unknown, in uncertain surroundings and limited resources is crippling. I only have but so many people I trust (none of which are in the room) and yet I am supposed to be open and available to this new group of people that I have to establish trust with. Thoughts of self doubt start to creep their way into my ears, self talk gets negative and defenses go very high. I don’t have the option of not going to work (I forgot to win the lottery) and I can’t go backwards in my career path, what was the point of taking the challenge on in the first place? The question isn’t “Do I stay in the fight?”, it is…

Can a pinched nerve in the shoulder go away by itself?

London Shoulder Specialists

Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve in The Shoulder

A pinched nerve in the shoulder, also known as a compressed or entrapped nerve, can be incredibly painful and debilitating. The good news is that most cases of pinched nerves will resolve itself with rest or over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications, but there is a point when you should seek medical intervention for a pinched nerve in the shoulder.

The suprascapular nerve can become compressed or restricted, either due to direct trauma or due to overuse injury. Shoulder dislocations, labral tears or cysts can all press on the nerve. Repeated overhead movements can result in a pinched nerve in the shoulder so this can be a common problem for athletes such as swimmers or tennis players, or those who work in certain jobs.

A pinched or compressed nerve will cause pain and numbness in the shoulder region. You may also experience…

DWP is trying to co-opt GPs in forcing ill people into work

Politics and Insights

facade welfareYesterday on Twitter, I posted one of my previous posts – Jobcentre tells GP to stop issuing sick notes to patient assessed as ‘fit for work’ and he died in which I discuss a letter addressed to a GP regarding a seriously ill patient. It said:

We have decided your patient is capable of work from and including January 10, 2016.

“This means you do not have to give your patient more medical certificates for employment and support allowance purposes unless they appeal against this decision.”

The patient, James Harrison, had been declared “fit for work” and the letter stated that he should not get further medical certificates. 

However, 10 months after the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) contacted his doctor without telling him, he died, aged 55. James clearly wasn’t fit for work.

There is something to be said about people who work well together, as it is in life – you can’t pick your family or your coworkers. Considering that I have a vast wealth of having less than preferred mixture of both, I find it fascinating when there are a group of people that gel in such a way that it leads to progress and grace.

The other night, while my hair stylist was making an attempt to make me presentable – which trust me is a huge task that takes patience and wine (yes, I see myself better when I have wine). There he was, Jose, my metro-sexual and super exotic hair stylist that has been my hair therapist for 12 years. He is fabulous, tan skin and a giant smile make you feel fabulous right when you greet him. Life was good to me and allowed me to meet…

Hard brexit campaign run by white, male, public school educated, southerners

Pride's Purge

One of the biggest and most ridiculous lies spun by the UK press is that the Brexit vote was some kind of ‘working class rebellion’ – led by Jacob Rees-Mogg, Viscount Rothermere and Boris Johnson – against the ‘establishment’.

The truth is, of course, that the most working class parts of the UK were Remain strongholds: Liverpool, Glasgow, Manchester, Peckham, Newcastle etc.

A quick look at the 44 people running the official hard-Brexit campaign group Leave Means Leave reveals all but one of them are white and male:

And more than 60% of these supposedly working-class anti-establishment campaigners were educated at public schools and are from the south of England.

Somewhat destroying the popular narrative …
