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
The past

Assistance can be of use especially when a dead end it met.. but you and you alone live the life you breathe… paths come together but they desolve to, to achieve anything you need to focus on the future but not to dwel on the present… this can be changed and adapted to your future goal, see where you need to be… it’s up to you to get there, but with the right mindset anything can be achieved

Doesn’t matter…. it’s gone, done, never to be again…. the future though is untold, a future yours to make, my future holds independence…. it’s going to as I will not live this way.. only you can change, no one else will do it for you..

Today 12 years ago, I woke from my coma… to meet “the new life of sia”


I’m completely off gabapentin (1100mgs) and off baclofen (120mgs)

I’m very down at the minute but the pain and spasms are the same with or without drugs, I believe I’ve just been dealing with the side effects for 12 years, I feel that once they are out my system my mind will level out… I hope, plus independence is really playing on me at the minute, I have no way out, change pa every two weeks for 40 years…. no thanks, a regular pa/carer was here Christmas and new year so was a good break, but now back to the toilet every other day being the high point of my life… I’ve chased every official and non official avenue to no end and now spiralling backwards.. things might level out over time.. but I’m a afraid 12 years is long enough, I need to change and can’t do it on my own

I have cbd oil that works to calm me but it’s £90! 25% strong, the price goes up depending on the strength, I feel I need to be on it constantly which again is not good, I take 1 drop at night 

I still take 10mgs of a amitriptyline (that is also a “black flag suicide drug”)

And Oxybutynin and clonazepam both 10mgs

The two antispasmodic and nerve pain drugs finished 

I don’t want to be drugged up, i can deal with my pain levels and spasms, I need help getting to where I need to be

From the mind of Bruce Lee

“Do not allow negative thoughts to enter your mind for they are the weeds that strangle confidence.”

“A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.”

“Balance your thoughts with action. If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.”


Each day..
