About Me

Sharon lawson

I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and had an arterio-venous malformation rupture which resulted in an intracerebral haemorrhage. I underwent full rehabilitation at the Edinburgh Western General hospital’s neurosciences department over the following months and then progressed to the Astley Ainslie rehabilitation hospital in Edinburgh. It was miraculous that I regained enough movement down my initial hemiplegic left side to be able to walk slowly with a walking stick. I’ve always bought funky walking sticks.

I started this blog following advice from my last psychologist on a therapeutic level and to express my inner thoughts. My posts will come with a disclaimer because they may trigger people with a similar mindset. As harsh as they seem, they are aimed at nobody and are that inner voice that has ranted in my head since childhood.

You are not alone.

We are not alone.

I would like to thank my husband, family and friends for their ongoing encouragement, love and eternal support.

At the fair, never too old!

What I do

I am medically retired so immerse myself in my interests to keep distracted from my noisy mind.

I used to be admin on the uncensored media site Documenting Reality and very much enjoyed website administration and technical support.

 

Past Experience

Laboratory Assistant and Mortician at The Royal Brompton Hospital

(1999 – 2001)
Assisted with the pathologists and MLSOs in the histopathology department. Ran the everyday functions of the mortuary, performed autopsies with the pathologist, liased with undertakers and laid bodies out for family viewing.

Dental Nurse at New King’s Road Dental Practice

(1997 – 1999)
A dental nurse in training for a brief period which was fascinating, especially assisting the oral surgeon on a Thursday evening! Was studying to qualify but wasn’t my life goal as I wanted to work in end of life services.

Postwoman for Royal Mail Scotland

(1994 – 1996)
My first job straight from leaving high school. Great fun, good banter in the office and brilliant exercise. Loved it at Christmas making children excited giving them cards and parcels.

  1. “Saying things to shock” was the filter I used as an excuse for being authentic in conversation. Liberals insist we be nuanced in our speech to ensure no offence is taken by the listener. For example, following a presentation given by a speaker my host asked what I thought of it. Taking the nuanced route I replied “It’s an acquired taste.” My initial instinct was to respond with something along the lines of “My thoughts were elsewhere” or “I lost interest after his introduction.”
    Glad you found your niche. As the Greek bus conductress once mused “Oh, ta very much.”

  2. I too was medically retired too young lol, due to a rare disorder called Transverse Myelitis, also leading to multiple afflictions and the end of my amazing mental health nursing career. Nice to meet you and looking forward to reading more of your blog. Caz 🙂
