I am a veteran of the Falklands conflict of 1982 who served in the army for a period of twelve years from 1980-1992. <br />This book is about my personal battle with PTSD, depression and perfectionism (My Black Dog). It chronicles how my illness developed over number of years and how it never really goes away. I liken it to a big Black dog which at times casts a dark shadow over my mental well-being. <br />In order for you to truly understand how I came to be suffering from the above, I need to start at the beginning (1963) when I was two years old. I apologise to those of you that may have read my first book “Cupboard Boy” as this book will make many references to events depicted in that book. <br />Finally, the names of the people mentioned in this book and my own identity have been changed for reasons that will become obvious as you read on. <br /><br />

Впервые издана в 1891 году в серии «Жизнь замечательных людей», выпускавшейся в 1890—1917, а также в 1922, 1924 годах издательством Ф. Ф. Павленкова.<br />"Предлагаемый очерк посвящен, главным образом, жизни Чарлза Дарвина. Что касается его учения, то оно уже было предметом многих популярных книг, которых немало и на русском языке. Всякий мало-мальски образованный человек знает в общих чертах это учение, а если не знает — то должен знать, так как оно лежит в основе всех отраслей биологии и не знать его — значит ничего не знать".

Product Description

This book brings the reader on our journey with nasopharyngeal cancer, a rare type of head and neck cancer. It is a collection of my reflections especially during my medical treatment stage in 2017, and ends with the post-treatment ‘clearance’ stage which will take the next 4-5 years (2018-2022/23) that are the crucial monitoring time period like most forms of cancer. The intention of the book is to highlight awareness to the readers concerning the challenges that both patient and (especially) primary caregiver experience before/during and after. It is hoped that the contents shared here will provide the reader (especially if you are a patient and primary caregiver) with the courage and strength to overcome the challenges that lie ahead.

La rilevanza umana e scientifica del Prof. Vincenzo Disanto è nel suo cammino dalla giovinezza all'inaspettato addormentamento senza risveglio, malgrado l'eccelso e risolutivo intervento chirurgico. Moltissimi, in particolar modo suoi innumerevoli pazienti, hanno manifestato la propria costernazione per la prematura perdita di quel semplice, mite, gentile e generoso medico che percepivano fosse loro amico. Infatti, non ci sono collaboratori, colleghi, discenti, pazienti o tante persone che, per sentito dire, hanno conosciuto il suo discreto contegno, innata squisitezza d'animo, l'abnegazione nel compito di primario chirurgo urologo, che non abbiano apprezzato la sua autorevolezza di studioso e inventore della chirurgia urologica mininvasiva: da lui ritenuta "la sua missione per destino", da sempre motivo nella continua ricerca della migliore qualità chirurgica per quanti, tantissimi, hanno posto le proprie speranze di guarigione nelle sue sapienti intuizioni diagnostiche e mirabili mani di autorevole e apprezzatissimo chirurgo urologo.<br />
