Illness And Disease
Turning a blind eye to suicide
Why are the devastating numbers of death by suicide not making front page and news headlines everywhere, every single day? Does it have to be someone we actually love for it to affect and shock us into seeing the reality of how great an issue death by suicide really is?
Is there a healthy way to be ill?
None of us are immune from ever being ill and we have many phrases that reflect that this is an everyday part of life. We cannot always prevent ourselves from getting sick, but is there a healthy way to be ill?
