I was young, out there and living my “best life” when suddenly a complication during routine surgery left me unable to walk or think... for years. This short piece made in isolation in my living room due to lockdown, at the tail end of my recovery, distils for you this true-life story in predominantly movement and some text. An intimate sharing of how life turned on its head and took me on this unique, patient journey. It is a thank you to those who showed me kindness. Profits going to The Samaritans.
