I was born in 1975 in Ipswich, Suffolk.
I am currently living in the SA1 post code area of Swansea. It really is a nice area to live in. Close to a great city, great coast and countryside.
Thanks to the recent Covid pandemic, and various lockdown restrictions, life has been far from normal. The things we used to do without much thought we can no longer do. I miss seeing my friends and giving them hugs, I also miss going to the 'Cuppa & Chat' group I went to once a week. I also really like to travel about the UK with my best friend Neil.
I've FINALLY got back out in to the world of the living, crowds & hugging too!, I went to the Big Love Festival in Usk, Monmouthshire.
My next BIG adventure is in October, as I head off to catch up with a friend and his partner in Austria, via Slovenia.
Living with Ankylosing Spondylitis
I have been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, its a horrible thing to suffer with, it can really knock me down.
I've been trying to raise awareness on social media. Not many people seem to know about it, as it is not really that visible.
I can tell you that suffering with Ankylosing Spondylitis has an impact on my mental health. I suffer with anxiety and depression, and keep beating myself up about my physical limits.
