How do you start a personal series of events when you are not a ‘sharing’ kind of person? How do you be frank and honest for the first time in your life when you’ve always hidden behind a mask, a facade? I’ve never allowed myself to get close to many people, having lived my life in semi-isolation from the majority of society as did many of my colleagues. The work I did defined me and my outlook on life. I did not share personal details. Period.
That was then and this is now. My life has changed to such a degree that trying to pretend that the way I lived my life before my injury is the way to continue is folly. I’m not the person I was seven years ago and whatever dangers that I believed existed have paled into insignificance compared to what I now face daily. I’ve decided that the personal me needs to explain some things because of something I have decided to do. An undertaking and an obligation. So the best place is to start not at the beginning but somewhere near the end; the last few weeks before I lost all sensation in the lower half of my body.

Why a different website? I wanted to have a website with unrestricted space and no adverts. It still uses WordPress and you can still log in with your WordPress account, it’s just hosted by me so that I have full control over it. Nothing else.
