Had a valuable evening session at the Crown & Glove with my dear friend Andrew, during which we reflected on how I have reacted to the diagnosis of PSP – to which everyone who has any sort of health connection expressed deep sorrow! I do feel people feel sorry for me, yet I still regard it as a challenge, a cognitive challenge to avoid falls at all costs, and a physical challenge to strengthen those muscle grouos which at present are noticeably weak.

Then we discussed our sehared eoxerience of prostate cancer – in my case treated five years ago by radical prostatectomy, with regular follow-up showing undetectable PSA, and in Andrew’s case “watchful waiting”, with the possibilty now of a slight rise in PSA, about 5 (normal).
