Another year over, and a new one just begun! This is a very quick post to say how grateful I am to be here to celebrate this, my 23rd Birthday. This time last year I was fresh out of hospital, still in a tank of a wheelchair, and barely managing to get through the day without severe pain. Now, I’m living life as best I can! We may be locked up but I have a job I love, a much better chair, a beautiful home and, most of all, a really good quality of life.
There are many who look at me with pity or think I don’t have a good life – they couldn’t be more wrong. I have a huge loving family, some of the best friends I could ask for, and so many reasons that help me get up in the morning. There was a point at which I doubted I would see this day, and so I wanted just to share how happy I am that it’s here.
With lockdown in full swing I’m celebrating quietly with Sarah and Amelia, but as soon as we’re allowed we will, in the words of the artist formerly known as Prince, party like it’s 1999. If only Jack Daniels was as cheap as it was then. Cheers!
