Got in at 1am this morning and couldn't wait to check in on the site, that's how important this site is. Had a fantastic time, it challenged me on all aspects, but lazing on the beach in the warm sunshine and having a dip in the sea now and again was great. No-one knew about my problems and apart from getting weird looks as I staggered around the beach, I'm sure people thought I was drunk, who cares, the warmth helped, as did the increased light intensity, I could see better. The family was fantastic, didn't expect too much of me, I took everything at my pace, made me feel that given more time I may become more "normal".
My son, he's17, walks beside me with one hand on my shoulder to help my balance, my daughter ,23, and partner will hold my hand if with me, they are all so caring I would be lost without them. The flight was OK, no issues headaches or other problems, back to reality now. I may even look into that charity swim it was so good swimming in the sea, we'll see. My husband and I have said its awful that it takes something like this illness to make you realise what's important in life, I'm just so grateful I still have a quality of life to enjoy even if it's changed. Take care everyone Love Janet xx
