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

Also this may help pain


I may never walk again… this I’m fine with, what I do want is my independence back, to be free to live alone and do things for myself… although today, tomorrow.. and most likely the next, one day before I leave this world I need to be independent!

This I truly believe can be achieved

7th January

11 years ago yesterday I woke from a nightmare (medically induced coma) into this my “new reality” – this is you now, get on with it!

I’m still here, I continue…. I survive

Into a future untold..

Catherter change today, all done for another 6 weeks, thank you Jennifer

A life lived by many through pain frustration (but I’m here I survive), everyday you wake to a new dawn a new start, the pain stays the frustration and survive through another day, still in body…. active in mind another day, today a new year dawning! Even knowing the pain you continue…. I continue, continue into that world beyond, fighting for what is and what each of us want…. what could be

What I will be is me!

I live for the fact that I survive, throw anything my way, through it all I have survived

I’m still here
I am me!

Survival of yet another year, paralysed in body but alive in my mind

You can only know how i am, who I’ve become, by being me

I feel more than everything, I can move nothing but my mind, from one end to another, a new day dawns onto a future untold

Right now, just now! that moment right there will never be again

Life is just a series of moments that will never be again, only to be frozen until that memory fades.. all this as time ticks by, your life, my life is but a flicker in the flame of time itself, be something be anything… but in time that to will fade

Ignition is the spark that drives the life blood through your veins to live on and survive even when what will be… is just you!

11 years today paralysed into the second decade!!

I need to push this thing up a gear, it’s a bit much now
