2020 the year of tests.

It starts with a tickle in your throat for a day or two then you develop a nasal drip and out of nowhere one morning you wake up and your throat feels as though you have swallowed razor blades. That burning sensation that follows every time you try to swallow the mucus that is building […]

Growing up is never easy.

I guess we all think our lives as children were difficult, unfare and sometimes misunderstood. I guess my life was no different and if I had to compare it with the lives of others it might even come across as privilaged but none the less the only way you would be able to know for […]

One persons positivity is anothers survival.

Snakes and Snails and puppy dogs tails.

Caught in the darkness.

I knew then that I was definitely in hospital and I was no longer in control of my thoughts and in no way capable of doing anything for myself. My diagnosis was blunt force trauma to the shoulder causing a brachial plexus of my shoulder with a ruptured artery and damaged nerve duct. My right […]
