With clearly too much time on my hands, I’m very worried about Juno Temple’s breasts which are seemingly being cut in half by her bustier - it really looks painful!
I have no idea how you could ever be described as “scruffy and unkempt” but surely we’re not STILL judging our fellow women by how they look instead of LISTENING to what they’re saying???
I absolutely LOVE Airyday and had no idea this was the incredible story behind it. I react to chemical sunscreens and so do my kids so I have to use zinc-based sunscreen. Blending skincare and sunscreen has been a game-changer and I’ve tried several other brands which feel nice but if you rub your eyes you won’t think they’re so nice anymore. Somehow Airyday is magic and doesn’t hurt my eyes so I’ve found my holy grail!
Love to hear your recommendations. Need serious help with understanding how what looks to me like a great (and probably firmly fitting) crop top can give enough support for big boobs? I’ve never gone without underwire (except when pregnant/breastfeeding and it wasn’t a good look!) and I can’t imagine this holds you in place???
Thank you so much for this article and I really feel for you and your son. My son is on the autism spectrum, has ADD and anxiety and struggled throughout primary school. At age 6 he had his first and second aggressive outburst and his school removed him from class for 3 weeks. After that he refused all attempts by staff to get him back into the classroom.
Thank you so much for writing this for all parents - even those without neurodivergent kids. We’re far from perfect but we’re committed to loving our kids and trying to do the best we can with what we have.
I’m so sorry you were treated without compassion when the medical professionals could see you were shaking and crying and where was the INFORMED consent? We need to do better when working with people who are injured and scared as people often are when they’re in hospital. There are many wonderful healthcare professionals who see the patient as a whole person and if you have a choice, it’s great to have these people as part of your support team.
My son has all the same diagnoses as yours and I feel your struggle. He has been suspended many times from “normal” schools and from schools for kids with behavioural and emotional disturbances but I have battled on with an imperfect education system.
In her interview, Mandy Moore says Ryan Adams did NOT offer her a private apology - did that change or is this a typo?
Before I read this, I thought I had an understanding of eating disorders but this showed me I really had no idea what it feels like and how much mental effort is involved in living with it. I wish it would be easier for you but hopefully you know you’re doing an amazing job just showing up for the challenge.
As a mum of 1 neurodiverse child and 2 neurotypical children, I’ve been both amazed by people’s kindness and stunned by the the lack of insight of a few. A brief interaction at the supermarket is NEVER the right time for a counsellor to deliver unsolicited advice - it sounds extremely unprofessional.
I cringe when I remember the times I silently judged others until my youngest son started to struggle at school. Now I know how some kids can look like they’re exploding when they are extremely distressed.
I know what it’s like to have a close friendship end and years later still be trying to work out how it all disappeared. I wonder if it is easier to imagine that your friend’s husband is the one influencing her rather than seeing your friend as being the one responsible for letting the friendship go.
