June 5th 2021, I had a stroke. It was my second. I found myself in hospital, mid-lockdown, with no visitors allowed. I’ve permanently lost half my eyesight. One night I went to the toilet and sat down on another naked blind man, already there. I was too blind to see him. He was too blind to stop me! So it’s not ALL doom!
I’d like to tell you about it. Not to create feelings of pity toward me, more a sense of awe & fawning admiration. I have had a unique experience about a topic, often sniggered over, but I’m keen to make you laugh, but also to raise a little awareness. Well done me! (Ahem!)
