B+ S EDITOR GEMMA SUTHERLAND
I LOVE this time of year. There’s a buzz in the air and it’s a good excuse to have a bit of fun. For many people, that involves indulging in a few beverages (but take it easy, friends – you don’t want to be person at the office Christmas party). If that’s you, now’s the time to show your liver some love by learning how to unclog it before you clog it up again (page 8). Also inside today you’ll find tips on coping while waiting for test results (page 15), the weird body issues we don’t talk about (yes, there is such a thing as a depressed vagina; page 6), and the story of Emma, who had a stroke at 19 and learnt how to thrive with a disability (page 4). Enjoy!
