Next Thursday I’m in hospital all day for a procedure called a Durolane injection under general anaesthetic. It’s a bit like WD40 for human joints and contains Hyaluronic acid which (apparently) naturally improves the function and eases the discomfort of a damaged or arthritic joint.

Although my hip has eased since last week I’m seeing the doctor Thursday to check it’s OK to go ahead as planned. I’m hoping this this injection will buy me some extra time (my hip was damaged in my accident and although I’m quite young, I’ve been told I’ll need a replacement soon).

I found myself saying the other day that ‘my body was just a casing that my brain lived in’. It’s an interesting theory that the two could be separate but in reality they are complexly interwoven. I am, however, trying to look at this next step objectively – as maintenance. Hand’s doing well so that’s one thing nearly fixed!

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
