Avicii´s girlfriend Tereza Kacerova defending herself against trolls in Instagram

Avicii´s girlfriend Tereza Kacerova is defending herself against Instagram trolls but Instagram deletes her postings.

Part 1/2 – Instagram took it down because apparently it violates community guidelines – please @instagram before you do it again, let me know what about me DEFENDING MYSELF against thousands of hateful comments that you DIDN’T TAKE down offends you and I will cross that part out. The way you arbitrarily choose what will and won’t get to be seen by the world is a wrong. You’re sending a message to haters that they can anonymously terrorize and there will be no backlash.

Quicktest – Enkelt sätt att testa dig hemma

Quicktest erbjuder säkra och enkla hemmatester, många av våra tester kan upptäcka orsaker bakom några av de vanligaste folksjukdomarna i Sverige.

Antalet människor som har problem med järnbrist eller sköldkörteln ökar för varje år. Symptomen är bl.a trötthet, ångest, håglöshet och yrsel. Detta resulterar i att personer som besöker sjukvården ofta blir feldiagnostiserade vilket ibland leder till att de, helt felaktigt, får antidepressiva etc.

Quicktest har tester som bl.a kontrollerar följande: Järnbrist, prostata, sköldkörtel, klimakterium och det finns även drogtester, graviditetstester och ägglossningstester.

Den traditionella sjukvården är ofta statisk – därför ska Quicktest prova nya sätt att öka människors hälsa. Enkla hemmatester ersätter inte sjukvården, den ska fungera som ett komplement.

Våra kunders säkerhet är högsta prioritet – därför erbjuder vi endast CE-godkända hemmatester som är tillverkade i Europa.

Cecilia Blankens & Anna Wahlgren

Cecilia Blankens skriver i sin blogg

Kollade på Anna Wahlgren-dokumentären igår och blev så fylld av känslor för den här kvinnan. Har aldrig läst Barnaboken, för att jag nästan alltid när det gäller för mycket av förhållningsregler blir rätt stressad och tappar kontakten med magkänslan och instinkten och till slut varken vet ut eller in.

Men! Jag är så otroligt svag för kvinnor som är som hon. Som har vett att inte veta sin plats, som låter och är för mycket, som inte bryr sig om att passa in och som inte är speciellt intresserade av att klappa medhårs utan månar mer om sin egen integritet och sina ideal.

En del av mig tänker på Anna Wahlgrens ord om att vår viktigaste uppgift som föräldrar är att lära barnen att leva sina egna liv, så att de sen kan bli trygga och starka vuxna.

Det finns en bok skriven av Anna Wahlgrens dotter Felicia Feldt med titeln ”Felicia försvann” och i intervjuer har hon berättat om sin uppväxt och om hur hon var rädd för sin egen mamma. Må Bra gjorde en intervju med Felicia som kan läsas här.

Cecilia Blankens sympatier för Anna Wahlgren togs inte mot väl av hennes bloggläsare.

Och Cecilia Blankens svarar bland annat

 Det verkar finnas lite olika upplevelser av det där, de sju andra barnen verkar inte helt dela Felicias uppfattning.
