            My psychosis, for all its destruction and wrath, was a love story. When Catherine left London for the US with her husband James, to introduce her family to their newborn son Cato, she could not have envisaged how that trip would end. Catherine would find herself in an involuntary... psych ward in New Jersey, separated from her husband and child, unable to understand who she was, and how she had got there. It's difficult to know where the story of psychosis begins. Was it the moment I met my son? Or was it decided in the before, something rooted deeper in my fate, generations ago? In an attempt to hold on to her sense of self, Catherine had to reconstruct her life, from her early childhood, to a harrowing previous relationship, and her eventual marriage to James. The result is a powerful exploration of psychosis and motherhood, at once intensely personal, yet holding within it a universal experience - of how we love, live and understand ourselves in relation to each other.

            Knowing which health checks and tests to get when can prevent illness, head off problems, and even save your life. This easy-to-use guide explains all the common health tests so that you can understand and manage your wellbeing. When you've had a test, how often do you understand... what the results really mean for your health and your lifestyle? You've probably heard of good cholesterol and bad cholesterol, but what does that mean? And what can you do if you're told your bad cholesterol is high? Why are there two figures to show your blood pressure? Is weight gain hereditary? Be proactive in managing your health by learning more about how your health is measured. Discover what factors influence medical tests, and what lifestyle changes you can make to keep fit and healthy for longer. Explore the variety of tests and screenings you may undergo at a doctor's or workplace health assessment - find out what is tested, why it is tested, and what the results mean. Clear, jargon-free text will highlight the lifestyle changes that you can make to bolster your health. The book first looks at which tests to get when and which factors, including family history and lifestyle, affect your health. It goes on to explain the tests that everyone might undergo; tests specific to age or gender; and specialist tests, such as DNA analysis. The final chapter deals with practical changes you can make to keep you fitter and healthier for longer. There is also a chart for creating a record of your test results. Body MOT is the only visual guide to explain all common medical tests, what the results mean, and what you can do to improve them and take preventative measures so you can minimise the risks and maximise your health.

            This is the story of a family led to confront a crisis they had never foreseen. Aged eleven, their eldest daughter has stopped eating and speaking. Alongside diagnoses of autism and selective mutism, her parents slowly become aware of another source for her distress: her imperill...ed future on a rapidly heating planet. Steered by her determination to understand the truth, the family begins to see the deep connections between their own and the planet's suffering. Against forces that try to silence them, disparaging them for being different, they discover ways to strengthen, heal, and act in the world. And then one day, fifteen-year-old Greta decides to go on strike.
