So much has happened since the last time I have written, it's going to be impossible to convey it all to you. Just before the pandemic started I finally got my Autism diagnosis. I am Autistic and I can now say that, I guess I am just coming to terms with that and what it … Continue reading Am I good enough??
I am not an expert on many things, in fact I am actually an expert on very little. Having never lived alone I can't run a house, I'd have no clue how to buy or sell a home and how to go about sorting out and paying for it. I have a pretty poor sense … Continue reading I am an expert in….me!!

No one said that having a catheter was easy, and I've been under no illusion that this was the case.
