new beginnings

Thank you for following my phoam surf blog over the years.  
I am gutted to have to finally admit to this being the very last post.

So after 7+ years, 1142 posts, thousands of photographs & dozens of videos .............   this is my last post.

I will add that after 3 years dealing with the Southern District Health board and their 'specialists' I have come to the conclusion that they are uncaring heartless ****ers. 

However, having now discovered the cause of my decline via an overseas specialist (a rare condition called Adhesive Arachnoiditis caused by an epidural injection), I can now look forward and adapt my life.

 On a positive note 
I can still create my original artworks.
Please support me, this is my only income.

You will be missed more than you probably really know. I, and I am sure many many others, wish you only the best on your future journey...

Nic, have enjoyed your stuff for years. You've given much to your community and I imagine that will never change, in the long run. I hope you continue to share art projects that you've done (it's resume material after all!).

Still look back fondly at the time I spent in St Clair in 2006 which happened because you were gracious enough to put my plea for a short term rental on your blog.

Strength and happiness to you

Thank you for all your work into this blog, your pics and paintings capture the beauty, wonder and fun of the region and I will continue to enjoy looking back at your posts. All the best for the future.

Specialists do their best under their own set of circumstances just like you did to keep the blog going.

There are still many far worse off than you.

Shame on you. You spoilt what could have been a great ending because they couldn't fix you. Sometimes that the way it is... To call them f***ers is deplorable.

Well you are obviously the simpleton. I never used that word.
The specialists did not do anywhere their best. They wouldn't have treated their own dogs the way they treated me.

Sorry to see your phoam blog is finished. How did you injure yourself and how is it incapacitating you? I really love your work.
