    I do not know if it has been broadcast outside of the UK but I have just had the pleasure of watching "Billy Connolly's Big Send Off" in which the now 71 year old Scottish comedian (who has Parkinson's) looks at how we view death. I know it does not sound like a subject that lends itself to...

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    Our story is definitely as complicated as they come. Bare with me as the story may jump. I met my husband in 2000. He would always come into where I was working at the time. I didnt know at the time that he was younger than me as he dressed and acted older than 17. I was 19 and fresh out of...

    One of my smartest and most earnest friends passed away two days ago. He was one of my first guy friends, my first kiss... We have been friends since I was 12 and I'm now 25.
