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

How’s life?

My life right now… all summed up this morning during “shower time”, the hand held shower jet of warm water popped the large spot/boil just inside the opening in my stomach where the suprapubic cahtherter goes in! (an open wound),Having to use the water jet to empty the puss from within “the hole”, after this I then cleaned it out with antiseptic detol (this stings!), all with my paralysed fingers… how’s life with you?

Dexter had fun later on chasing the leaves and barking, keeping me sane

Life that makes me, breaks me… pushes me to the extreme limits of human durability.. what is humanly possible for a mind to take, trapped inside a body broken.. broken for so long… I’m still inside, still here, living each day.. each day I breathe is another day lived.. once taken never beaten, always tested everyday.. my limits reached… but then another day passes and I’m still breathing, where will this life take me? I’ll keep going each day the sun rises… each day I have another chance… a chance to change what’s wrong in my life.. as we all do.. make a change for the good, live your life the way you think you should!

It is what it is…..

And what that is… is me!

Cahtherter change

another extremely professional cahtherter change done with minimal pain, extremely well done, a week early but better done today “under controlled circumstances” than wait for an emergency, autonomic dysreflexia is always hovering above me, drinking at the weekend, a great night but does bring problems with the water works, pushing another week (4 weeks this time), no one available so better safe than sorry!

Everybody needs luck

img_9606luck.. love and hope… they drive you, with one you can find the other, I hold onto hope through the darkest days, hope for happiness… independence….. my own life, yes I’d like my old life.. but now with everyday changing, time slipping away each day.. it’s time for my own life, once I could…. if only… I was… these words are dead sayings… I am now! I will be! I’m going to! I can! I will! With luck maybe even find the love my life needs…
