Going Private (nothing to do with health care!)

To all regular readers of this blog - I've decided, with reluctance and after much thought, to "hide" this blog and make it available only to pre-approved people with a password.

In the past, as I've written about my own health situation and the politics surrounding Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, I never expected my health to improve to the extent that I would work again. I'm now well enough to begin looking for part-time work. Unfortunately I'm in a country and an economic climate where discrimination of all kinds appears to be rife. Here in Australia I've been advised by many that I will face discrimination for having no local work experience, no local qualifications, for my age, for having been out of the work force for several years... all of this on top of having been diagnosed with an illness that still goes unrecognized and derided by the majority of health professionals. Thus I've decided not to prejudice my job hunt any further - any intelligent recruiter these days will look me up on the internet and find this blog without difficulty.

If you would like to have access to this blog in the future, please leave a comment below with your email address, or write me directly on:, and I'll send you the password (as soon as I've thought one up!).
