Have you ever been to someone’s house, as soon as you enter, it hits you! The smell… It’s very distinct and it is unbearable. The house, their clothes, their hair, even their pets reek of cigarette smell; and the most amusing thing is that they can’t smell it. They literally and truly just can not. […]

  “Have you ever seen a person with dementia? Have you met one? You probably have but you were not aware of their health condition and probably thought that they have lost their marbles!” This is what usually happens!

“Down on sleep, down on the budget, down on time and high on cortisols, coming home to an empty apartment via a quick trip to the 7/11 store (to sack up on cheap Ramen Noodles of course); can you guess what I would have had for Dinner that night? Or as a matter of fact […]
