I contracted meningitis at the age of 26, nearly died and was bedridden for a decade. Following the lockdowns of the pandemic in 2020, many people asked me how I’d coped with living alone and being confined to one room for ten years when they could barely manage 3 months and this series shows my response. You need: Courage to charter unknown seas Hope that tomorrow's dawn will be brighter To come to terms with Loneliness Tenacity to survive when life's landscape is bleak And blind Faith that you will one day recover.
