I went down to London yesterday to the London Clinic to have the next IMM101 injection. I am getting used to hopping on the train and underground and have it timed to perfection. Yesterday however despite my fine tuned plans I arrived to find that all the trains to London were cancelled.
Oh no… This was due to someone throwing themselves into the path of an oncoming train. How awful. My initial thoughts were how am I going to get to there in time so I hopped on a train to Reading. Once there I noticed a train just about to pull away and it said it was going to Paddington even though it passed through Slough where the poor soul had taken his life. With everything crossed I hoped that I wouldn’t be stood on that train with hundreds of others for hours on end. Thankfully the Universe was listening and we got there with not much delay.
Whilst travelling I spent time thinking about how confused I felt. I felt obviously put out by the disruption this one individual had caused to thousands of people that day. I felt so very sad that he decided that his life wasn’t worth living and what an awful way to end his life. I felt absolutely gutted for the train driver (whom I was told was his birthday yesterday) who had to witness the horrible mess made by a speeding train and then I thought how life is so crazy. Here I am trying desperately to stay alive and well, doing everything in my powers to find a cure or at least something to extend my life. Then there are those who simply cannot cope with their life and want to end it all in an instant.
I have never understood depression and it has been bought into the spotlight this week with the death of Robin Williams. I don’t think I will ever understand it. I didn’t understand it when my ex boyfriend decided to hang himself and I lived with him for over 6 years.
That’s life I guess…..
Since the injection my arm has as usual gone into an explosive mess. It has reinfected one of the old sites and I currently have huge blisters which will open up and become all pusy again. The price to pay in the quest for wellness.
Tomorrow Pete and I along with his colleagues and about 150 other people will be doing the Colour Run in Birmingham in memory of our friend Leanne Muir who passed in June. We are also raising much need funds for our chosen charities; Breakthrough Breast Cancer and The Cancer Vaccine Institute. 5 kilometres may not be that much a challenge and having paint thrown over us does seem fun but every step of the way we will be thinking of a wonderful women whom we miss every day.

Thank you in advance and I will post photos of our antics after the weekend.
Happy Friday everyone!
