Welcome and thanks for stopping by to read my all about me page and blog.
The aim of my Blog is to document my journey with PSC an autoimmune Liver Disease with the hope that it will help, inspire, educate and make others laugh. After all, if we cannot laugh at ourselves, who can we laugh at?
After having a Liver transplant during March 2017 and, fighting PSC for 11 years, I finally feel as though I am getting my life back. I know I will be forever grateful to my donor who, in a way has become my guardian angel.
Born in South East London, I am a mad lover of all things London, especially the traditional pie & mash.
One of my other passions for my sins is Gillingham F.C. They often frustrate me & make me scream, but best of all, they keep me dreaming of better days. Always my team, always the Gills.
I love music and everything about the 60’s MOD culture. The Small Faces, Paul Weller, The Kinks, The Who, Oasis, Minis and Vespas.
When I am not in the UK and traveling back and forth to the hospital in London, I am living in Cyprus. I have lived there with my family since 2008 and love every minute of it.
Finally, through personal experiences I realise “it is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” (Mahatma Gandhi)
