hi everyone,
John here, Just a bit about myself I'm 50 years old and I'm disabled because of horrific motorbike accident in 2018 which I ended up being all over the news because basically nobody had survived from the horrific multiple injuries that I sustained at the scene. I am now on disability benefit and just get on with life as I really shouldn't be here and As I was refused entry at the Pearly Gates,lol. So I just have to get on with my life now but it's not easy When your world has been shattered and turned upside down.
