Back In The Riddle

Anyone who reads my blog may have noticed that i haven’t posted anything for quite a while, so first I would like to apologise to anyone whose rooms i have played and have yet to review, they are coming and i am back on them all now. Here’s a little about me to explain where I’ve been for the last few months. It’s a very long story but i’ll give the shortest version i can.

Since the age of 12 I’ve been going to the Doctors complaining of back pain, this was never really looked at and i was constantly told i was ‘too young’ to have a bad back, i put up with it for years, until it got to the point where paracetamol was no longer working and i was put on cocodamol for the pain, but my back was never looked at. A few years ago my back pain had progressed to the point that i was now on butrans patches for the pain, which had become a lot worse i was finally sent to a specialist who actually took a look at my back, and within minutes told me i had scoliosis (a curve in my spine) She sent me for x-rays to confirm this, but afterwards i was forgotten about and all the appointments i was waiting for never came through. A few years later (late last year) the pain had gotten so severe that i was put on morphine, without this I couldn’t walk, and was in too much pain to do anything, over the last few months I’ve been backwards and forwards to doctors and hospitals, i have to visit my GP every week, and have had more x-rays, MRI’s, seen a number of specialists and been sent to a pain clinic, and referred for physio with a spinal specialist as the regular physio wasn’t helping, at the same time doctors have been trying a number of different pain meds to see if anything else would work, this has taken almost half a year out of my life, and i have been unable to do much as the pain continued to get worse. The x-rays showed that my curve has progressed 10 degrees in the last 2 years, and while i am still waiting to see various specialists, the pain is now controlled to a point where most days it is bearable, i still have some days which are really bad and i cant do anything, but i have a bit more of my time back and am able to start doing things again.

So as soon as i can, i will be posting reviews for any games which are not up yet, updating the escape room directory on here and list of other reviewers, and some general updates to the website. Keep an eye out over the next few weeks for reviews from all around Yorkshire and the surrounding area!
