Oana Stănescu, Unwell Women and a giveaway from Happy Immo Club
before this little newsletter falls into its winter slumber, let’s get a little techy.
If you’re entirely new to Web3 and or the world of crypto, I hope this guide is a helpful start to your journey down the rabbit hole. Have fun and always DYOR.
This informal starter pack (LINK) aka Google Drive Doc by SF based investor Jay Drain Rr. was an excellent intro to the topic and reminded me a bit of the first days of the web where every long tail/niche content would find their audience. One of the reasons I fell in love with all things “internet” back in the early 2000s - oh how meta! Feel free to deep dive a little and don’t forget to DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH, ever.
Yours, Julia 🔮

Spirituality Bought a single page rip-off calendar by the Moonsisters that describes the energy of the 🌓 and suggests the most beneficial actions for the day. Don’t judge me - but don’t we all strive for being aligned with the universe? (LINK)
We are taught that medicine is the art of solving our body's mysteries. And as a science, we expect medicine to uphold the principles of evidence and impartiality. We want our doctors to listen to us and care for us as people, but we also need their assessments of our pain and fevers, aches and exhaustion to be free of any prejudice about who we are, our gender, or the colour of our skin. But medicine carries the burden of its own troubling history. The history of medicine, of illness, is a history of people, of their bodies and their lives, not just physicians, surgeons, clinicians and researchers.
In “Unwell Women” Elinor Cleghorn unpacks the roots of the perpetual misunderstanding, mystification and misdiagnosis of women's bodies, and traces the journey (…) to modern day understandings of autoimmune diseases, the menopause and conditions like endometriosis. Packed with character studies of women who have suffered, challenged and rewritten medical orthodoxy - and drawing on her own experience of un-diagnosed Lupus disease - this is a ground-breaking and timely exposé of the medical world and woman's place within it.
