Shelf Life

Retina Display

12Apr20

I’m going to have to change my plans for how I earn a living during this pandemic. I had another lot of emergency eye surgery yesterday. There’s a danger that the retina in my right eye may become detached. Retinal detachment is a medical emergency, you can permanently lose your vision. There’s a`U’ shaped tear […]


It’s not a good idea to need urgent medical treatment right now. I had emergency eye surgery at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage on Thursday night. I’d been seeing black dots in front of my right eye and it turns out that meant I had a tear in the thing that holds my retina in. […]


Road Rage

I haven’t exactly had a dream start to my new career. During the coronavirus crisis I’ve got a job delivering medical supplies to pharmacies.
