You’ve been targeted: supporting the AMA and RACGP supporting us

Should I just put a down payment on my coffin now, Scott? The identity of my Goliath has changed. Right at this moment “Love versus Goliath” can be translated to love for my own health and Goliath, yet again, is the government. Different political persuasion, this government, but essentially the same beast. This isn’t just about […]

Juggling drugs, rest, exercise – but never the ironing

Today I feel like utter crap. It was our work Christmas Lunch and I had to leave early. I felt dizzy and faint and I had stomach pains. I. AM. OVER. IT. Emotionally, I am over it. Logically I know these things are not so easy to diagnose and I also know that guessing, therefore […]

Do you hate going to the doctor?

Are you one of those people who hate going to the doctor? I’m Radioactive Robyn and I’m here to share my current experiences with my medical magicians in the hope you might change your mind. Your health is important and so much can be treated so well if detected early enough. I remember a friend who was […]

If you love Australia

If you love Australia, I highly recommend you take a few minutes to read the following three articles. The first is by our master of getting to the point with humour, John Birmingham.
