  1. Impressive portfolio of works Ms.McIver.

    I have to stop reading. Other things beckon. Is it common for this type of thing (reading, contemplating, then engaging) to be addictive? Should it have a warning?

    Hi Linda,
    Enjoyed your article in Brisbane Child Aug 2010 ‘Not Always For the Best’. Funny, I use the ‘good enough, is good enough’ philosophy at work daily, but never with my kids. Thanks for the pointer!

      Thanks Trevor. It’s funny how some things seem obvious once they’re pointed out, isn’t it? But we all need those pointers sometimes.

    Hi Linda,

    I enjoyed the same article as Trevor, in Melbourne Child. You know the saying, “if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well”? I prefer, “if it’s not worth doing, then it’s not worth doing very well.” :)


  4. Hi Linda,

    I read your article in Brisbane’s Child “The Need to Know” and your story sounds similar to so many of our members I felt compelled to write to you.

    I sincerley hope you received a diagnosis for your daughter. My 7 year old was diagnosed with a little known disorder called eosinophilic oesophagitis when she was 18 months old, we were so thankful to finally have an answer for what she was going through.

    I thought you might be interested in checking out the website for the support network I founded for eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders – http://www.ausee.org. Every Mum (and Dad) on this site can relate to your story, regardless of what your daughter has been diagnosed with we are all facing similar chronic health issues and symptoms as you have described in your article.

    Best wishes,
