Terveystalo – Where the Wellbeing of Patients Comes Last

What a disagreeable doctor I just encountered. Utterly unpleasant and very unprofessional. I have already given a formal complaint to Terveystalo, and sent an email to the chief of staff here at work. But as this was in a league of its own, I will share with you too. As many of you know, I […]

None the Wiser.

You know what happens if you forget to remove the second wisdom tooth? The one your dentist says you should come back to get removed as soon as the other side has healed… About seven months later it starts aching. No wonder I’ve been unable to decide if I’ve got a flu or not. The […]

So much chocolate. So little time!

Trial and Error: Ditching Shampoo

Seeing as I’ve received a fair share of comments on my hair the past two days, I thought it as good a time as any to recap what’s happened since I went to the hairdresser’s last (in October). Going completely no-poo seemed a bit too extreme, so I settled for some sort of low-poo. The […]
