I’m a woman in my mid-20′s and live in the UK. I have just moved from an area in the South(ish) to an area in the North(ish). I’ve just gone back to university to study to be a nurse after having worked in the scientific industry for a few years. I’ve been a volunteer first aider for a number of years since I did my first degree. My other half is a medical professional, as are other members of my family. So therefore I only have time for medical and scientific information that has gone under peer-review and proper scrutiny. You will not find advocacy for homoeopathy, chiropractic practice, reiki etc here – unless it has been shown that they are actually and properly scientifically valid for the treatment of whatever ailment you might be referring to. (So you will find a positive attitude towards acupuncture for the treatment of musculo-skeletal problems, but a negative one towards the use of paracetamol for curing cancer (for the record I was trying to think of something ridiculous for the latter to show my point).) Google Tim Minchin “Storm” if you want a short explanation as to why, as I cannot put it better myself.
The name MadadiousMoggy comes from the fact I have a short attention span, always seem to get under my other-half’s feet, and there always seems to be something going on with me medical wise. I’m not looking for attention, I just want to talk about it all somewhere neutral and put any useful links and information all in one place. Who knows, it might help someone else!
I want to remain anonymous so that I can live my life as normally as possible, and so that people and organisations around me who I care about are also not likely to be affected by anything I post. I may occasionally put up information or useful documents that someone may recognise and be able to identify me from if you already know me in reality. If this is ever the case, might I ask you to contact me and let me know? Oh – and also to keep it to yourself
If you ever have any questions or just want to say hi, please do leave a comment or drop me a line. I may take a while to reply to you, but please be patient. I like talking to people in general, however I will not enter into pointless arguments (unless I’m in a mood) or reply to messages of distasteful intent.
