Hello guys it's nice to be back after being sent to the punishment block. Firstly may I apologise to whoever took offence at my last blog. None was intended. I will try and do better in future but I never set out to deliberately offend or shock, only to see the lighter side of a sometimes very dark life. I have the greatest admiration for the sufferers of RA, many of whom are far worse off than myself and didn't get aggressive treatment in time. These wonderful people show huge fortitude and good humour in the face of enormous adversity. I would never mock them. Please remember though my thoughts and life experiences are mine and gallows humour is a valid weapon against grim reality.
