Donna carrying her Allbirds pipers My name is Donna. I am 32 years old, live in London and have suffered from Morton’s neuroma since 2016. I had surgery to remove it in 2019 but it had worsened by the time the surgeons reached it, so I’m still on the long road to recovery. I wear insoles to prevent further problems in the same foot (and to prevent Morton’s neuroma in the other).

Hiking became my outlet to reconnect with nature once we left the country. Since my daughter was born, I took her with me and let her feel what dirt looked like and what nature looked like. There is a stream running through the woods where I walk. I would sit there with her and let her listen to the running water and the melody… Read More »How I Taught My Daughter to Appreciate Nature

Obese people are automatically considered binge eaters in society, and mental health professionals are not exempt from this belief. Much of the implicit bias training for eating disorder mental health professionals lacks the appropriate weight bias tools.

Check the Date: Is Your Makeup Expired?

The other day, I did a big clean-up of my makeup vanity, doing lots of old and barely used products.
