Survival Mode Losing my Mojo

My favourite saying over the last few months has been, "it's ok, I am just in survival mode". It took time out in Broome to realise that I have been in survival mode for the last 15 months since Covid when life changed in so many ways for all of us. I lost my mojo, my spark and direction. [...]

Menopause: Who am I?

Menopause isn't something we openly talk about and yet it is a conversation we should be having. Menopause, when you google it, is described as “a natural decline in reproductive hormones when a woman reaches 40’s or 50’s”. This sounds very calm and natural and I was not prepared for the chaos that would come with this so-called natural [...]

Lessons Learnt in Business

I have just celebrated my 50th Birthday, and my husband made a speech about my working life and talked about how I had always been self-employed, and I realised from the age of 18 I have worked for myself. The reason may be something to do with not liking being told what to do. It got me thinking about [...]

Time

Are you like me, are you always running against time? I try to cram so much into my life and generally that is good, I do like to be busy, but I also have to make sure I have downtime. And that I am spending my downtime with the people that are important to me. Time for me is [...]

Obturator Internus

Fridays fact: Obturator Internus and its link to the pelvic diaphragm. I have just run my first anatomy quiz, and one of the common questions that tripped people up was on obturator internus. Obturator internus is one of the deep six muscles, which are the lateral rotators of the hip. As a group, they laterally rotate the thigh at [...]

Hyoids

I want to share my love of the hyoid muscles. I travel and teach a lot and often suffer from throat and voice problems. After many trips to the doctor as well as throat lozenges and medication, I realised it was because of muscle tension in my neck and throat. These muscles had a big part to play in [...]

Sub Occipitals / Tension headaches

I love writing my Friday facts and love these group of muscles, but this Friday fact has been a challenge, keeping it short and trying not to go too far down the rabbit hole. This subject will lead to a longer article. Today’s Friday fact is on a beautiful group of four paired muscles at the base of your [...]

Impostor Syndrome

As well as anatomy, I love peoples behaviour and quirks, including my quirks and insecurities. Have you ever felt like you didn't belong, that you weren't good enough, or thought to yourself just before an important presentation "who am I, I shouldn't be here." The international journal of behavioural science estimated that over 70% of people would experience impostor [...]

The Pelvic Floor / Diaphragm

I think there should be a pelvic floor appreciation fan club; it is impressive anatomy. The pelvic floor muscles give support to the organs above, the bladder, rectum and uterus in females, they help you control bladder and bowel function, they are important for sexual function/orgasm, help with core stability and act as a blood and [...]

The beautiful pterygoids – with the coolest name

I have a list of favourite muscles, and this one is top of my list along with the adductor magnus and obturator internus. I am hoping I am not the only one with a hierarchy of favourite muscles. I would love to know what other peoples are? In my very first dissection I decided the pterygoids would be my [...]
