I don't want to be the passively alert vegetable in the corner that takes in everything but can't communicate, which I think would suck a lot of life out of my family without giving very much to me.
I can still boss people around. I can still write. I can still read. I can still eat, and I can still have very strong views.
In the grip of a neurological disorder, I am fast losing control of words even as my relationship with the world has been reduced to them.
I just like being on my own on trains, traveling. I spent all my pocket money travelling the London Underground and Southern Railway, what used to be the Western region, and in Europe as much as I could afford it. My parents used to think I was going places, but I wasn't, I was just travelling the trains.
