Hi Nicole,

Thanks for sharing your interesting story. I didn't know that, and how aggravating. I'm glad these archaic kind of practices are quickly becoming practices of the past.

Hope you're having a good day!

I do know that women can be awarded the noble prize Maria won the noble prize twice and was diagnosed with aplstic anmia from exposure to radium. I am glad to see how technology can give disadvantaged women a chance to thrive. They I am good I have been doing a lot around ptsd and ndis funding seeing if I can change the system so people don't have to go with out support they only have ndis in Australia

The national disability insurance scheme ndis for short was released in Australia by the government to provide funding for people who have physical disability and psychological disability support the benefits of the program allows for therapy and in home care services to but the system is a mess and people who need support are have to wait 3 months for a review of there case for more funding to be released so I have been trying to get the government to re look at the ndis structure so people don't have to have gaps in support

Oh, I see. Thanks for clarifying:-)

Oh, I was just thinking that was a good system, but, yeah, waiting 3 months isn't super helpful:-( Well, that's definitely a noble cause. Thanks for all that you're doing to help others.
