I was on my way home from a night out in the early hours of this morning and at around 2am I was a victim of a failed robbery attempt about 200 yards from where I live. In the melee I sustained a few blows from my assailant and ended up in Croydon University hospital casualty at half 2 n the morning and not leaving until half 6am.with facial swelling, a suspected hairline fracture to my right eye socket which will need a further precautionary check at St Georges Hospital eye unit and buuised facial bones. My right eye is such that I can only see in widescreen so telly settings will have to be changed to letterbox pic lol. My assailant got away with nothing, but police later said he was more successful just after he had a go at me. He has been caught on cctv so hopefully arrrest imminent.
The reason for this post is that having survived blood cancer 2 times seems to have made me more resilient to such trauma. Although I did cry with shock afterwards and am feeling a tad sore, I will not let this incident run my life. Once my boat race has settled back to its ugly self then I'll venture out and in true British stiff upper lip style I shall carry on as normal.
I hope the police do catch this nasty individual and in the event that they do then I'll make my feelings know to the little so and so.
