    So, apparently your earwax could be key in diagnosing mental health conditions...

    Bit of a weird one!! Very early days as they are still not sure what the levels of cortisol might mean for diagnosis..... but its definitely thinking outside the box.
    I swim that much I dont have any amount of earwax

    I saw that and was convinced April fools had been delayed in the last lockdown!
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
