My Story...
Hi I’m Alex and I’m a marine engineer, while working out in the Caribbean in 2006 during some leisure time I went swimming and my whole life changed in an instant... I hit my head on a sand bank and broke my neck. The vertebrae at c5 fractured and c6 broke into three parts one of which damaged my spinal cord, leaving me paralysed from the chest down. More


As I lay awake listening to my pulse waiting for my eyes to shut, waiting.. waiting for something that never actually comes… for the morning to come, for the night to end.. dexters breathing keeping things calm, thoughts diced up and thrown around my mind, the depths of the night or early hours of tomorrow… they say “it never comes..” here I am listening to my pulse, knowing it’s the very start of dysreflexia pushing on my mind, most likely a crease in the cotton sheet cutting me like a knife…. only relief to lie on my hand, light sensation burning like fire

Stand and be counted

for today you are here,all of us will fall one day, that day may be far.. for some that day may even be today, for one little guy that is tomorrow…

I didn’t know you, but I’ll be thinking of you

“Waiting for tomorrow, tomorrow may never come”
(Quote from someone somewhere, who I don’t know, but it fits)

“Crack a rat” its back!


Snowing, but soon summer and heat problems, spring first and after summer autumn comes.. in between life happens, nobody knows what that brings, maintains an air of positivity and hope


Is a world into its own, one second passes, a day, a month, a year… each takes its own time.. but to live one moment takes a lifetime, live one moment feels like an eternity. Time is relative to the moment you’re in, good times pass in an instant, bad times not so much.. but a memory can be re-lived over and over

Ten years have flown by, but each second dwelled on one moment that can never be changed

Paralysed by time, but free to roam the depths of my own mind, places I’ve been and never will again, places still to see.. but time is on us all

Do with yours what you will, for we are all trapped in our own time

A good night in!

Gone in a moment
