Mielipiteitä kaiken paskan keskeltä

Ilkka on ollut työkyvyttömänä 2017 lähtien. Ystävämme Borrelioosi, Anaplasmoosi, Bartonella ja Yersinia diagnosoitiin vihdoin 3 vuoden kohdalla, ja nyt seuraillaan miten lääkitys toimii. On toiminut jo osin, mutta pitkä matka vielä.

Lisäksi ykköstyypin diabetes ja kahteen kertaan murskaantunut Charcotin jalka, jolla ei enää koskaan kävellä normaalisti -- eteneminen tällä hetkellä (sähkö)pyörätuolilla. Tämän 3,5 vuoden aikana kehittyneen vaikean masennuksen myötä paketti on kasassa.

Siispä mielipiteitä ja ajatuksia, koska jonnekin ne pitää purkaa. Sitä samaa mitä kaikki muutkin. Yhy. Ajoittain toki muutakin, usein ykköstyypin diabetekseen liittyen. Joo, pyörittelen paljon ykköstyypin diabeetikoiden juttuja, mutta olen muutakin.

UK: White Cliffs of Dover

I’ve been in London a few times in my life, and decided to make this trip a little bit different and get myself to Dover, Kent. You probably already guess what I was going to go and see there. Well, the trip started once again from Helsinki Airport (HEL / EFHK). This was still the time I wasn’t on a wheelchair, but had indeed already problems with my legs (they’ve been ongoing for the last 2 years or so). From HEL I flew to Heathrow (LHR / EGLL), and...

Iceland: Reykjavik & Golden Circle

I was supposed to go to Prague, Czech Republic last week, but was forced to cancel the trip on the morning I should’ve left because of leg problems. This was kind of infuriating, because that trip was something I had waited for a while, and I rarely have been forced to cancel my solo trips. So of course I had to get a new trip to replace the cancelled one, and in the lottery inside my head the winner was Reykjavik, Iceland. It had been a dream of mine...
