The New Normal

Hello dear readers!

There’s a strange feeling in the air. A feeling of things coming to an end. A feeling of a new chapter about to start, To be frank, it’s about bloody time.

Anyone who has had the stamina and slight sense of masochism to have read the blog over the last few months will know what I’m talking about. For those that have not had that most dubious of pleasures, I am referring to my recent diagnosis of MS and the hectic merry-go round of life since then.

It’s been a time of much change but maybe, just maybe, things are starting to calm down.

Trouble And Strife

Hello dear readers!

At the risk of sounding a little like a broken record, these are not the easiest of times.

As anyone who has endured this blog for a while will know, my recent diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, piling on top of my long term Spina Bifida have made life rather… Interesting, and this has led to me making the decision to give up work for a while. The MS making it just too hard to contemplate at the moment. Yes, life is definitely interesting. You could throw in words like frustrating, worrying, and emotional if you like too, and of course it’s not just me that’s going through this.

Today, (being Sunday 22nd of October) is the birthday of someone rather important in my life, a woman who shares the challenges that I’m currently facing, a woman without whom I doubt I could face them at all. It seems like an apt time to shed the limelight on that rather lovely woman.

That rather lovely woman is my wonderful wife, Tina.

Ten Minutes

Hello dear readers!

So, first of all apologies for last week's missing post. This was almost entirely due to a sudden and only half expected bout of extreme MS related Tiredness, one that saw me take to my bed on Monday night and get twelve hours deep and apparently much needed sleep. Putting going to bed to, um, bed for a moment here is last weeks offering, updated and posted a mere seven days late. Enjoy.

I think it is a very human thing to put oneself at the centre of life. To concentrate on those things that are closest to us, that have the most effect on our own personal stories.

And then something like the tragic events of two weeks ago happens. Something outside of our own little worlds, something far removed from most of us, but something that underlines just how tiny one person’s problems can be.

I am of course talking about the Las Vegas shootings

All Systems Slow

Hello dear readers!

Well, what a week it has been. A week where waiting had finally resulted in action, and a week that finished with me feeling far from my sparkling best, but for possibly the best of reasons.

Confusing, eh?

Well the surge in positivity has much to do with a couple of things that the Seated Perspective household’s collective breath has been well and truly bated over for a while now. One of these things is of the building bent. The other, a mite more medicinal.
