Two words this evening- DAVID WEIR!
Regret was not the word at 3am this morning!
I'm sure that those of you who have been following my ramblings for some time now and who are therefore aware of my neurological disease Arachnoiditis, (which causes me immense and unrelenting chronic pain, which is made all the more unbearable when I overdo things by moving around too much or even sit in my chair for too long)- will know that these self induced relapses are far from a rare occurrence due to my reluctance to sit back and accept that my situation is physically limiting!
Friday's setback was definitely caused by spending way too many hours sat in my wheelchair. I inevitably paid for my wonderful experience for the rest of the weekend, with three hours sleep, maxing out on morphine and and being stuck in my bed! Ahhhhh!
With the crazy pain still very much resident in my legs and buttocks, I am finding it increasingly hard to sit at my desk and write to you tonight, so apologise that I may now have to bid you farewell as I take refuge again in my bed!
With much greatly appreciated craziness going on right now in my life with the start of my charity Get a Life!
...I apologise that I have not been around writing to you as much as I would have liked to, but I hope that this crazy period of admin and interviews will die down soon enough so that I can get back to chatting to you about the challenges of accepting and adapting to life with physical restrictions, pain and/or illness.
In the meantime, should you have a few minutes, please take the time to check out Get a Life!'s website.
I wish you health and happiness this week and urge you to tune into the phenomenal feeds of The Paralympic games on Channel 4, Channel 4 + 1, or even 4oD.
Whilst I think of it, I also really urge you to watch the very funny Adam Hill's 'The Last Leg' each night after the Paralympic coverage. It is just AWESOME!
Have a great week guys.
