Do not get a the covid injection. It's not a vaccine. Please do some research. Do not rely on the bought doctors and politicians appearing on the TV spewing propaganda. No one needs this injection. It's designed to kill you. #scamdemic #depopulation #fakenews #wakeup

Fuckkkkk;I feel like these eps are recollections of some of the fucking hardest, most shitty & unpleasant YET life altering lessons my stubborn ass has had to learn to date 😂 I have one hell of a fucking story that I plan to approach multiple podcasts with to engage in a collaboration/ft. episode when someone (and they will) throws me a bone in the future but before then I need to tone down my potty mouth and have been working on it everyday. In the meantime, since discovering you and knowing how much I want this (I can see it, I have lesson's to teach and stories to share with the world) I got the urge to leave a comment and see if you would take me on as a collaborator when/if you ever plan to have a guest on the podcast - I won't have to watch my mouth as much and it would be well-needed experience in doing something I've never done before. I will eventually work in the field of motivational speaking (think, Ted Talks, Brene Brown) but am not currently, but close to beginning my study of Neuroscience, basing a lot of my reasearch around Nueroplasticity and trauma based mental disability/helath conditions, as well as the Science of Psychology. I have experienced quite a few downfalls in what I'd like to think is a pretty short lifetime and what I've managed to do with those short comings and how I've managed to turn my adversary around and "self-medicate" (aka. I don't take anti-depressants or mood stabilizers) to save my kidney health due to my super rare genetic disease (around 50 ppl in QLD, 450 Aus wide with my disease) is pretty cool and worth being shared! Plus, it's a rare X-linked lysosomal storage disorder which may intrest you considering what you're studying and I'd be happy to share anything you might want to know, straight from the source. 😉😌 reply to this if my message tickles your fancy and I'll drop an email address below to begin correspondence. - My leap of faith! Cheers babe, chat soon. *visualising your reply now* 😌

This has brought alot of answers to question I had to my past relationship, always felt that things were not quite right and asked my family and friends for help but they didn't know what I was talking about. Now I know the key signs thank you for being straight forward about it!!
