“About – Come In”
In 2007 a simple accident resulted in a broken neck leaving me paralysed from the neck down and unable to breathe on my own. I am connected to a ventilator 24 hours a day.
I have been through some tough challenges and been lost through dark times but I have also laughed and loved, probably more than I did before the accident.
It has taken this turn of events for me to truly appreciate what I always had in life. It has also helped me to see the failings of my old lifestyle. I didn’t realise how selfish, vain, materialistic and ignorant I could be (that list is by no means exhaustive).
I live a very different life now and although I am far from perfect, I am aware of my weaknesses and slowly working away at them.
No questions are off limits so if there is anything you would like to know, ask. Hopefully I can tell my story, share some experiences, talk about my feelings and no doubt have the odd rant. More than anything, I would love to help if someone is struggling through a disability or that of a loved one.
I’m keeping this brief but sketching the outline will reveal a little more if you wish.
Feel free to say hello at any time.
