In conversation with Mary McIntyre – amateur astronomer, presenter and writer

“I am now so stubbornly determined to not let this condition beat me no matter what stage of pain I’m in …”

“I’m never gonna go back to the place I was before because there’s too many things that have been re-sparked in my head and I’ll just keep fighting.”

“…but I am strongly of the mind that I’d rather have those big positive days and then take the consequences ”
