As a kid, I loved the Guinness World Records books. A few years in a row, I received the latest book as a Christmas present. I would flip excitedly through the pages, seeing if any of my favourite records from the previous years had changed. I recently heard about a group from Gloucester in the […]Read More How Long is Too Long?

I was dealing with post-partum depression on top of my already existing depression and anxiety and I ended up hospitalized for a week.
