It has changed me (irreversibly I think) into someone who just doesn't accept face value certain pronouncements (especially what govt scientists say I'm afraid!). My poor husband - he used to have a relatively quiet life, and now he's being drawn into giving his views on all sorts of issues, often at the end of a long hard day at work!
I feel I am privileged to have "met" a lot of wonderful people from all different walks of life, who have displayed great endurance and "guts" when up against seemingly hopeless odds.
