I have spent time in the forge and on the anvil, a refining process that has reshaped me both mentally and physically. Progress has been slow at times but consistent nonetheless. I have been a fighter, a dreamer, a lover and now an author. I am ruthless in my determination to walk again. A living paradox, if you will.
This memoir is just a small sample of my experiences. It is a story about death but also one about life with all its difficulties, its disasters, its dramas and its delights. It is Jonathan's story from his school days, hanging around comic shops, through his time in the Territorial Army, camping in the Mournes, a memorable visit to London for the signing of a copy of much loved comic, his work with local radio and the music scene and far more than his fair share of family tragedies - all culminating in the onset of Addison's disease.
Much of the story, and in particular its speech, is written in the language of the comic book or graphic novel. It is in his descriptions of, and his reactions to, the tragedies that occur in his life that the author's talent comes to the fore. It is difficult enough for anyone to deal with such incidents, much more difficult to record them for the public and posterity, bur to do so with Jonathan's courage and resolve is quite special.
People like Jonathan that are able to get over such hardships are the real heroes. Codice inventario libreria Fare una domanda alla libreria.

An adrenal crisis can be fatal if it is not treated immediately. Jonathan can now get around Lisburn in his electric wheelchair and has even managed to complete his first book, August Always — a triumph as he has considerable speech impairment and great difficulty using his hands to operate a keyboard.
The process has been long and laborious but Jonathan said he was determined to share his experience with others. I am Jonathan Fisher, a survivor.
