Hello all my first time writing.
A little about myself. I served in the forces (Army) from 1975 till 1989 when I left I found a job in charge of security for Preston Council and done that for about 2 years. I then took up office work and ended up a project manager for Hewlett Packard working on the DWP account. I retired in 2015.
I was a member of my local Gym for over 20 years as I’m a great believer in fitness I also used to do a lot of fell walking and take people from the Gym, work but also children as we used to be Foster carers for several years.
I also used to help run a charity called Pendle for Romania from 1992 for about 10 years, we used to drive to Romania up to 3 times a year and take essential equipment to orphanages, hospitals, old people’s homes etc. We also used to work to improve the conditions everything from painting to putting in showers, toilets, windows replacing beds taking clothes and shoes especially for the children.
In early 2017 I started having odd symptoms such as stiff legs balance problems and double vision so went off to visit the medical world. Two and a half years later in September 2019 i was diagnosed with SCA 6. I still do exercise and recently started to exercise the Cerebellum as the only professional help I’ve had is a prism fitted to my distance glasses which gets rid of the double vision.
Hope this is ok and not too long and boring.
