“I hate being fat. I hate being thin. But most of all, I hate that I even care.”

Follow 12 year old Becky’s diary as she describes how her young life is dominated by the perceived need to follow ridiculous fashions portrayed by under-nourished models with or without subsequent ‘adjustment’ using photo-editing software. Soon enough she is lying to her family and herself about food and her weight as well as indulging in shoplifting at local stores.

A long stay in an anorexia clinic is the turning point for this ultimately uplifting true story. Becky not only learns to recognise the illness for what it is, she also becomes aware of how it has grabbed hold of others. Dying to be Thin is not a ‘happy’ story but it is an inspiring one and would make an excellent ‘wake up’ call to any Tweenie or young teen who is getting caught up in the low self-esteem – diet – anorexia – low self-esteem vicious circle.

An amazing tale of triumph over adversity

The author, her actor husband Conrad and their small daughter Kate leave London for a new life in South West Scotland. Although they know nothing about farming, they have bought Skeoch Farm, and they are determined to make it viable.

But nothing is easy. The farm is large and run down, and establishing by trial and error what crops and animals are best suited is the steepest of learning curves. While spirits are willing, the flesh is still used to the comforts of city living, and exhaustion, due both to physical work on the farm and arduous commuting to fulfill acting commitments in England, takes its toll.

The beauty of the place and the humour of the situations shine through. After a second daughter has been born, one day the two children are discovered leaving home Dick-Whittington-fashion to ‘live with the fairies’ who according to their lore live in a wood at the foot of the property. Their parents realise with a jolt how much the relentless work has made them neglect other areas of their lives.

This is an honest, gritty and at times tragic account of a pioneering lifestyle in which mistakes are fully and freely acknowledged. It is also a well-constructed, entertaining and often funny story which seizes the imagination on the first page and continues to hold it until the very end.

A minority among millions – lymphedema is a terrible and misunderstood illness

I’ve suffered with lymphedema ever since a bad car crash 20 years ago. The doctors in the UK had absolutely no idea what it was or how it could be treated. The net result was that I was subjected to a great deal more misery than was necessary as well as giving the disease time to get established to such a level as that it is now incurable.

My first visit to a lymphedema clinic was strange and, because I had no idea about what was involved, I was very badly prepared. After 6 weeks I was climbing up the wall. Nowadays, I go prepared and the stay is much more beneficial and comfortable. I’ve put what I’ve learnt into this booklet which I hope will prove an invaluable to anyone finding themselves in my position. I’ve also written the book from the point of view of trying to help sufferers keep down the price of this expensive treatment which often comes with numerous hidden extras.

With some 250m people suffering from lymphedema and this, with its propensity for creating massive weight gain and intense lymphatic fevers, it begs the question, “Why don’t most doctors know about it?”. I don’t suppose this book will be particularly welcome by the medical profession because it’s plain English and easy-to-understand advice means that it is really aimed at the ordinary person and helping make sure that they don’t get overlooked like I was.
