Hi my name is Craig, I have been ill now for nearly 10 years. I was diagnosed with neurosarcoidosis, which is lesions in my brain that caused, nystagmus, headaches, fatigue, memory issues and difficulty walking. I literally woke up in hospital at the start, with no idea what was going on, unable to move my legs. I have since started to make progress. But then was diagnosed with fnd and ended up in a wheelchair. So a bit about me I used to be a personal trainer/fitness instructor. Sadly obviously I had to give that up. I also have an 11 year old daughter who is my world. I enjoy watching films, sport, listening to podcasts. My aim at the moment is to get back to being able to propell my wheelchair and workout at the gym. Sadly though lesions have come back so will just need to see what happens.

    Hey @craggelpots, welcome to our community :) Hopefully you get to be able to exercise again. I see those athletes at the Paralympics and it amazes me. I hope the fitness is something you can return to if your condition improves. 

    What films have you watched lately if you don't mind me asking? It's been a while since I watched some films and I'd love some recommendations.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
