First Blog…

I have no idea how this is going to go. I may suddenly turn into A literary genius, but more likely this entire venture will fall by the wayside. For now though, here are some things you need to know. I am paralysed from the chest down, meaning I now use a wheelchair to get about. I am still (at the time of writing) in hospital, recovering from my injuries. I am here because of a motorcycle accident, but more on that later. The important bit is that I will meander and muse whilst explaining my story; not everything will be wheelchair related, or necessarily me related at all.

So, where to begin? Oh yeah. As above, I’m currently in hospital following a motorcycle accident, which has so far resulted in me enduring 9 weeks in hospital. Ah, and I can’t walk anymore. It’s quite frustrating I’ll admit, but better than many of the alternatives I could have faced. I’ll get into detail about my injuries on another post, but suffice to say that it wasn’t pretty. I don’t really remember much following the crash (once again, i will get into specifics later) but i do remember enough to know I wouldn’t really recommend it.

It seems i may be finding my way with this entire ‘blog’ thing. I’m usually pretty good a talking about myself, so why not utilise that skill in the greatest way known to man; talking to strangers on the internet. If I haven’t bored you to tears so far, and you wont be reading this if I have, I think my next post will be a bit of a backstory as to why I’ve ended up spending my time on wordpress. Wish us all luck.

    • Hi Sam, you don’t know me but I’m a friend of Jon’s and know something of your story. Just to offer you some encouragement- you’re a good writer and I hope you’ll persist with this enterprise. Many of us are praying for you at this difficult time – in your writing you come over as a person of strong character, and you will need that strength for your journey. Best wishes to you and your family, Jenny Tyrie

  2. Hi Sam – it’s juliette molly and Adam here in jersey -(jon’s cousin) great to see your blog I’ve never followed one before – so it’s a first for both of us – I’m sure you don’t want to hear people giving their sympathies – as from what I can see already you are an incredibly strong and positive person – so wishing you all the best for the new future you have ahead of you – keep strong and positive 😊 we’re here if you ever want to chat (Adams mobility issues are not the same as yours I know but if we can offer advice we’ll do our best)
