Instead of me writing I have been written about in the Swimming Times Magazine March edition. When I opened up the article I could not believe it. Three pages about me including various photographs not at all glamorous.
When I finished reading the article tears were streaming down my face. I expect most readers will have the same reaction.
Despite various amendments over the last six months to the article being written I had no idea the impact it would have on me when I finally saw it in print with the photographs.
It is not as bad as the feeling I have when I watch myself back on tv. I usually cringe and want to hide away when others are watching with me. Perhaps that is how actors feel.
I have no idea where my life is going to take me or where my journey will end. All I do know is I am here for a reason and that is to help others.
The rest is like wrapping paper on a present.
Best wishes to everyone.
