It took me about four months to get right. I was very weak at first but with the help from family and my wife Julie, I eventually got stronger. Before this happened I used to be very fit, running marathons and it was the fitness that got me through and of course the nursing.
I am a bit forgetful and get tired more easily but after what happened its nothing. I hope to get back to running and do the Great Manchester Run in May and raise money with my daughter for research.
How I got this illness, we do not know but as I said, the staff at Pinderfields were excellent to me. I must now be positive and get on with life, as I nearly lost it.
