This person told a big lie:
You probably should not tell lies like that.
...but fucking hell.
Because I think of people who may have actually been dealing with cancer and making it worse by following her bullshit, but then, you should probably listen to a doctor and not a "wellness blogger".
And if a nice woman says it helped her get over cancer then why not give it a go? Obviously we wouldn't, but still.
I remember seeing an interview with her on TV a few years back, way before any of this shit hit the fan, and thinking that beneath the veneer of upbeat self-promotional blether and "wellness"-speak she just seemed like a seriously weird, fucked up person.
so different from 'mentally unwell'.
What is the difference?
'a book deal would be lovely though'
a really dreadful human
it should be the hope that people stop listening to shit posted online by people who have fuck all medical/academic background.
Also, you know, was probably as useful to those who followed her blog as homeopathy.
'Ok, she's human' " yeah, a human bitch!!1
and enjoying posting on drownedinsound with you fellows
is pretty telling isn't it. What a cunt.
so I didn't have to play tennis in PE, always felt bad about it but this puts into into context
ROSCOE: I haven't had to make your bed in ages Marlon, are you starting to take note of the virtues of tidiness my fine feathered friend
MARLON: I read that lying is morally a dubious thing to do
ROSCOE: That is a different kind of lying
MARLON: Makes sense. I had never assumed that virtue could knacker one's legs so comprehensively
ROSCOE: I want you to know that I'm being really kind to you given how objectively stupid your decision-making narrative has been
MARLON: You see Roscoe now I feel like you're being calculated, and would actually rather you just called me a wally
ROSCOE: Fine, you're a wally
MARLON: The time's passed Roscoe
(outside we can hear the modest hum of traffic on the roads)
MARLON: The time has passed.
(the sound of a siren fades in and back out, all dopplery and that)
MARLON: I don't know what implications this has for our professional business partnership
and that it's the one that really gets us back on track with the plot progression.
I can only assume she is suffering from Munchausen Syndrome (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munchausen_syndrome), but still. As someone who lost their mother to cancer last summer (8 weeks from diagnosis to death), I find this enormously offensive.
could make a few bob I hear
I should read to the end before posting. Sorry if it seemed nasty.
