Fierce Bright Star

What I understood about my journey to diagnosis and beyond, after running 1800 miles across the UK, came out (unexpectedly, I must add) in the form of a poem.

I meant to say this poem during my TEDx Holyhead talk in April, but I was too nervous and overly worried that I’d stumble over my own words. So I let it hang there in the back of my thoughts.
