    Hi All
    Well my ID name speaks for itself:). I'm 48, Scottish but live in London -- always on the road hame though . Have 2 teenage kids almost left the nest. Am kinda religious (less so in recent months ans also very political, activism and lobbying politicians such as my MP and local MEP I know). Health and Social Care in Barnet leaves a lot to be desired. I believe we are all way too medicalised by the professionals - I have quite a lot of evidence to show that medical interference creates more health problems than it sometimes cures; side effects of meds can cause more problems as well as create mental health issues. We are not told everything about treatments offered in order to make informed decisions.

    I enjoy reading when my retinopathy allows and have been on several committees connected with women's issues and am a member of a few social groups in Barnet, North London.

    I am a child of the 80s music-wise -- into rock and indie mainly from that era and some pop. Tastes now mellow liking Ed Sheran, Katy Perry, Take That, etc, nowadays.

    Enough for now.
    Take care all.
