Who does this guy think he is?

I write.

Reviews, mostly, but I’m also under the impression that I’m on my way to becoming an author.

I just need to actually write some fiction…

“You met me at a very strange time in my life”
As Edward Norton said to Helena Bonham Carter, and as I’d probably say to you.

Welcome to my year from hell.  2010 has been an magnificent bastard of a year that’s seen me diagnosed with Type One Diabetes and my father develop Myeloma – a type of cancer that’s seen him go from an independent ex-serviceman to a frail elderly man who needs a zimmer to walk about in the space of a couple of months.  So while I’ll continue to blabber on about whatever the hell I like (what else is a blog for?), what was first intended to be a music blog has become a venting space to help me deal with what’s happening, because it’s not much fun.
Basically, if you see 2010 when you’re out in town, you can tell him from me that he’s an utter douche.

Oh yes, I’m Phill, by the way, but use the handle Suffice in various places on the internet.
(It was a song by Sikth, plus I use the word a lot)

Want to know me? Read the blog, yeah?

For you diabetes-heads out there, you can read all my diabetes-related posts by – obviously – clicking the ‘Being Diabetic‘ category.

I turn my tummy into a pin-cushion with NovoRapid and Levemir insulin pens, and my fingers into pincushions for Optium’s Xceed meter.
