Hi and thanks for looking!

I’m a 49 year old ex-secondary school Welsh teacher, who due to a catastrophic spontaneous pelvic fracture caused by underlying osteoporosis (which I didn’t even know I had!) is now a disabled wheelchair user. The fracture left me with permanent nerve damage and a subsequent chronic severe pain syndrome and I had to retire. After yonks of feeling totally miserable about my lot, I decided to start writing this blog as a means to express myself ( or as my other half calls it ‘whinging!’)

I now spend my days “managing” my pain by pacing myself, drinking therapeutic green tea brought to me by my long suffering partner P,  thinking ‘good thoughts’ and venting my spleen on here!


I’d like to say that I’m now fully adjusted and looking forward with glowing positivity but I can’t, I just get through each day as best as I can.

That’s the best anyone can do, isn’t it………..??
