2015 *WHAT A YEAR*

I don't think I would have coped if someone had told me what last year would involve.There were some incredible changes for me-most importantly my ACE operation.Life before was pretty rubbish before and it's not been easy but I do have a chance of a more normal life now.I didn't realise that everyone is so different in how they manage their bodies-...

When we arrived on Th...
