    Information Monday

    Today, I’m going to explain what non-communicating Hydrocephalus is.

    Non-Hydrocephalus is also called obstructive Hydrocephalus. It occurs when the flow of CSF is blocked after it exits the ventricles. The word “communicating” refers to the fact that CSF can still flow between the ventricles, which remains open.

    Next week, I’m going to explain what normal pressure Hydrocephalus is.

    It's never to late to (re)start the day

    Some of the best advice a friend ever gave me was "it's never to late to (re)start the day". This concept has helped me turn numerous days around. For example yesterday.

    Yesterday started rubbish. My period started, I couldn't go for my walk because my meds were due to be delivered. I couldn't connect to my work due to recent updates on the servers, then my refrigerated meds came right as a meeting started. Not a good start. So I had a call with a friend to rant and at lunchtime I took an extra long break. I ate, and went off in my daily walk. I took time to process my thoughts and emotions. I took time to immerse myself in nature: listen to the birds, feel the wind, bask in the sun. Then I came back, got dressed in work clothes again and restarted my day. My afternoon went much better.

    So if you're having a bad day today, what can you do to restart the day? Maybe lie down for a bit (nap optional) and do your morning routine again. Maybe call a friend and have a rant. Maybe it's having a shower. Maybe it's going for a walk. Whatever it is I encourage you to do it. It's never too late to restart the day.
