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
Waiting for life to reclaim my heart, bring life to my life

I’m on route, not in circles anymore…. maybe a little backward curve every now and then, but generally feel better going somewhere-baby steps! Can’t change 11yrs of pain and frustration over night, but things are looking a little lighter ahead, September is a very long month, where I think October will fly by, my favourite time of year helps but found this picture and I do think it’s depicted my life quite well at the minute

Autumn is definitely here, possibilities hopes and dreams, everything open, life happens while you’re not looking….

Each day is a new one…

Catheter changed ++A auntie Pauline full set up and change with Jennifer in attendance

Daniel Baker!

19 years and nothing changed between us, a day, month or year…. time is but a drop in the ocean of reality, living a second it can feel like a lifetime but blink and two decades go by!


“Today.. it could be the best day of your life”

Ticking away

trust the timing of your life…

Baby steps

A first step into the unknown… a way forward into the world, job, hobby… career, life.. somewhere, something, somehow I’ll find


Why do this?

Because “why” might just be the reason for life….

Look up at the stars

When you feel alone surrounded by people, look around for something… something from the heart and a feeling will warm you from within, it may be such an ordinary thing, but to you it will bring you memories of something… a twist in time, into a future yet to make, maybe the warmth of a touch.. or a long good bye.. to a flower on a tree, to a song once played, anything around can trigger an emotional response to cloud the loneliness surround

Autumn will be here..
