Unsurprizingly no one was taking photographs of me four years ago today. I didn’t look too good – much worse in fact than the picture above. It was the day I had a serious brain hemorrhage and nearly died. The picture above was taken seven months later when I was only just beginning to feel better. I didn’t know at the time that, if you do recover from a condition like this, it is a very long time before you really feel fully better. I’m pleased I didn’t realize then that it would be four years before I could honestly say that I feel fine. Maybe when you’re ill for a long time you forget what feeling well actually feels like. Well, folks, it feels like I feel today. I hope you can see the difference.
