I was born in 1975 in Ipswich, Suffolk.
I am currently living in the SA1 post code area of Swansea, Bonymaen to be exact. It really is a nice area to live in. Close to a great city, great coast and countryside.
I am about to get started in radio again, doing shows from home. A new website just for that is on it's way!
Due 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. Having a Motability car has really given me hope for the future when restrictions are less and Covid has been stopped in its tracks!
Now life is almost back to normal in the UK, the restrictions and needing to wear masks have been lifted, people can go on holidays and day trips again. My left eye is preventing me from enjoying life and enjoying driving, see my health blogs for more on that issue.
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.
