    Sisterly love <3

    A bald, alopecia-suffering teen has revealed her bare head for the first time in six years - after her big sister shaved her head in solidarity.

    Brave Emily Morris, 14, has spent nearly half her life hiding her thinning hair after she was diagnosed with alopecia in 2007.
     
    But now, thanks to her 16-year-old sister Lauren - who shaved off her long brown locks to raise money in memory of their mum - she's found the courage to step out in public without her bandana.

    "I promised her that if she shaved her hair off I would go to school without my bandana.

    "I was nervous at first but with Lauren's support I felt I could do it.

  • The REAL Reason You’re Tired All The Time – And It Doesn’t Cost A Penny To Fix

    Feeling lethargic back at work after the Bank Holiday weekend? There might be an explanation for that, and it’s easier than you think to rectify…

    Skip the caffeine, quit snoozing the alarm and unplug your headphones because there’s a real reason you’re tired all the time – and it costs nothing to fix.

    A new survey of 300 GPs in the UK has found that a fifth of all doctor’s appointments are down to tiredness and fatigue, a syndrome which is known as TATT (Tired All The Time).

As well as getting a decent night’s kip, have you taken a minute to look at your hydration levels?

    Of these consultations where patients say they’re absolutely knackered all of the blimmin’ time, docs say one in ten of these patients are suffering from dehydration.

    And the figure is even higher for Londoners, where a fifth of patients who are Tired All The Time simply aren’t drinking enough H2O.

    “I see many people in my surgery who are feeling tired all the time. There are, of course, several reasons that could be causing this, but a surprisingly common cause is that they are dehydrated,” said Dr Roger Henderson, GP
