    Pity about the invasive questions in the registration process. It's none of your business when my birthday is and you do not need that sort of personal information. If you need stats, do what everyone else does and give age groups.
    Not happy.

    Thankyou @Giovanna_BCNA
    The obvious solution is to lie, but I'm over having my data mined and I resent the attempt to extract information for no valid purpose. It destroys trust, and yes, I know everyone does it but I continue to resist. Have a great night. M
    Tried to register, with accurate answers, cannot view past podcasts 😢. Hope tonight’s went well. Hope to view later. Struggling to recognise why we need to register to view xx

    Thank you @EAA. I will advocate at every opportunity. I have nothing more on the books at the moment, but I have a few ideas fermenting.

    Tomorrow brings a blood test as I'm seeing my oncologist on Tuesday. The breast cancer life...

    I'm feeling rather keyed up and anxious tonight. I'm also going for a walk with a friend tomorrow. Hopefully that will help. I hope you have a good Friday. K xox
