Horizons 'Fix Me' @ 9pm Tuesday 27th
Now i know that this isn't IMPERFECT related but i just wanted to say that on tuesday night there is a show called, 'Fix Me' which is about the various treatments going on around the world and if you are an amputee, have a spinal chord injury or have congenital heart problem then I think you may be really interested in the content.
I don't want to give to much away but the show follows three different journeys to different countries to see what the world is offering in ways of treatment either now or in the future.
While the show does seem to show that my particular journey in life seems to be to find a cure, this isn't exactly the case, i live a very happy and fulfilled life, and my real incentive with the adventure i partook in was actually to find out what was going on out there! For someone like me, who had an accident and wasn't born disabled, i think i'll often compare my two realities and wander if i will ever return to the way i was born..I also wanted to know if going overseas to find treatment was an option and i learnt all bout this and as a result i was able to make a far more informed decision, and i hope, that if you are wandering about this yourself or know someone who is, that the show helps you make your own mind up. I also hope that it gives anyone that is waiting and wanting a bit of hope! You'll see what i mean!!
I will be online after the show on the BBC Ouch! forums which is a great chance to answer any questions and I hope if you have time to see it, you enjoy it!!
As for IMPERFECT news things are zooming along, sorry that things have been quite but we busy getting things sorted! I'll be back this week with some more updates,
