For many years, I guess you could say that I’d been living the dream. I had an amazing job as a Sales Director for IBM, and I was paid rather handsomely.  I’d been an increably successful athlete, and having cycled for Great Britian, swam for Calderdale County, I ran the London Marathon recording a time of 3:38:21. I was also pretty impressive on a motorbike too.So to be reduced to, not being able to anything for myself for years, was a bit of a culture shock. I was discharged from rehab in the latter part of 2011 to begin the extremely long process of trying to rebuild my life. It wasn’t until I was found to have the capacity to terminate the employment of my management company, until my recovery really began, significantly helped by my sweetheart wife.I used to think that miracles can’t possibly happen but, then I look at my own story and think otherwise. It’s almost like I’m starting to live the dream again. I’m building a new and much better life,  happy days…!
