Dear Future Me……….


What have been some of the biggest events and changes in your life so far? How have you got on managing these events and changes?

I think the biggest one for me was being really sick at the end to the start of this year.  Last year I lost a close friend and then one of my family which really did affect me in a bigger way than I would acknowledge,  In November I travelled abroad for work after a crazy year, when I was being driven home I had to be rushed to hospital due to chest pains.  After lots of tests etc they couldn’t find what it was but it was some weird virus, I then was off work for a long time to try to recover.  I hoped to come back to the job I was doing but unfortunately that wasn’t meant to be.  I fell apart at the start of the year and then what with no longer having a job it got worse.  My family have supported me through but I have my partner to really thank for helping me through it he has been so patient and caring when most people would have run the other way.  Thankfully I am starting to feel better everyday and I feel more positive every day as well. Of course there are days still when I don’t feel well or strong but they are getting less and less.  Honestly without my partner I think I would have fallen in to a much worse place and I am so grateful and thankful I had him by my side.

My operations- I had a sport injury years ago and ended up having two knee operations and a hip operation.  This has made me realise how much mobility means to us as people and how helpless you feel without that capability.  I managed this one by just focussing on healing and getting back on my feet.

I think those are the two biggest things in my life and changed how I live my life most.

Share your experiences below with us, I want it to be somewhere you can share and be involved so never be shy.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your friend and your family member I know how hard that must be, and not only that being ill can make things even more difficult, but from what I’ve read you’ve learned a lot from your operations to and how important that it is for you. I know it is a horrid way to realise it, but I know you are growing as a person. If you everr need a chat please let me know!
