Well it’s finally here. I’ve been putting this post off for over a month now for many reasons but it’s now or never. One reason in particular has kept me dragging this out and I can finally share it with you today. My future is going to be very different now that 365 days of myasthenia, as you know it, is over. The main reason for that is I’m moving home.
After nearly 12 years away from Edinburgh, I’m moving back. I’ve got myself a job I’m delighted with for the Scottish Government and this time next month I will be cutting around the streets of my childhood.
What made me decide to move back now? The pull of my family and friends in the Burgh has been strong for a while now and by late last year I was finding it more and more painful to leave after each visit. Being 400 miles away on a good day felt hard and on a bad day felt intolerable. I’ve always known I’d like to return to my home city at some point, and when this job came up the timing seemed right.
As you can imagine, there’s a massive amount for me to do in the next month. But as I start to work through the seemingly never-ending list, I watch the new door creaking gradually open and prepare myself for the next chapter.
One last thank you for all your support and help over the last year!
