So the previous post is a part of a piece of fiction that I occasionally type stuff into. It’s about a world where a new and contagious form of dementia ‘CLBD-7’ has changed the world in unusual ways. It’s a first person piece (mostly) written by a journalist writing a retrospective since it was discovered.
If you click on the ‘fiction’ category you can scroll back and see how it started.
This is a first draft, which is what they will all be, and I’m not entirely sure why I’m posting it up, it really should go through at least one editing process, but I think it’ll force me to write more of it and maybe even get it finished.
It’s meant, in part, to be a metaphor for how the NHS is collapsing, and while I started writing it in 2009, I really need to get it out before the NHS actually collapses in a pile of flaming Brexit disaster underfunding.
Anyway – no-one really reads blogs anymore, so who is going to notice.

You know, I thought that last bit might trick people, which I why I wrote this post. Tricking people not being my intention. Yet.
I still read blogs. And I must admit, you got me too. I couldn’t work out what CLBD stood for…
Welcome back! I’ve kept your blog on my favourites since the beginning of 2018 in the hope that you’d reappear, & don’t think I’m the only one.
You helped to keep me sane when working in NHS . Please keep posting. We do wonder how you’re getting on since the career swerve; but happy to follow your fiction (too true to be funny…
