In our latest Conversation on the Couch we chat to the beautiful Cathy Crawford, a doting daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, friend...the list goes on. I first met Cathy when I joined her workplace in Newcastle in 2002. My first job was to order a bunch of flowers to be delivered to her in hospital after her breast cancer surgery that day. Little did I know, I was about to adopt a surrogate mother/big sister/role model/mentor. Cathy has been there for some of the hardest times life can dish out and that's why I knew she'd give us an amazing, inspiring Conversation on the Couch. Thank you Cath! x
Vanessa Eylward engages us with her insight and wisdom of valuable life lessons from a life well and truly lived, and from her latest life experience, living with breast cancer, for our latest Conversation on the Couch. This is laugh-out-loud funny and poignant all at the same time.

The Well that Ran Dry

My biggest problem for the week has been that I haven't been able to cry. I'm not a crier anyway, I know that, but this week I should've cried but I couldn't. No tears. No matter how hard I squeezed my eyes shut and tried to force them out. Nada.
