Love this piece. I'm sharing it everywhere. I had a very moving discussion recently on fb about chronic pain. A couple of people who don't have it were engaging with me and another painiac and were really present to hear us and it was a fantastic testimony to the power of communication through this medium. People don't often slow down enough to hear this stuff, and it is hard to hear, I know, so it's fantastic when it does happen.

I am careful about how much I talk about this on social media. I'm there to enjoy and distract myself, so it's a chance NOT to talk about it, but on the other hand I want to be my real whole self, and that includes my illness/es. Sometimes I will post something though, and often people are pleased I talked about it, it seems to give them permission to own their own pain.

This sounded lovely when I first heard of it. 

It's costing a fortune, from the public purse,  and will not be free to enter, so not really a 'bridge' then.

We need a London we can walk around and enjoy at street level. Every time a place like this is destroyed to make something massive and faceless and clad in marble a little piece of 'what is London' dies.

Wow! Looking forward to getting to try this! As it is I've been round the dozen or so migraine preventatives and the small clutch of fibro drugs AND a whole bunch of psych drugs, only to be back at the beginning in the hope that for some reason one of the drugs I already tried is going to come out differently this time. I realise this is a pretty tragic strategy but what else have I got? This gives me something to hold out for.

I just made a new about.me page. 

I expect I will fiddle endlessly with it, but this is how it looks right now...
