Welcome to my online journal, which I started in December 2002 after several very persuasive hints from friends. Although I obviously don't write about everything that happens in my life here, I hope it'll provide an insight into who I am and what's happening in my life - whether good, bad, happy or sad.

Rest in peace, Joan

I've just had some sad news. Joan Adams - who I met briefly in Chonburi in November 2003 when I arrived for my reassignment surgery - has passed away.

It was quite sudden. She recently had a heart attack, and apparently during a subsequent bypass operation it was discovered that she had an lung cancer at an advanced stage. Although hoping to start chemotherapy to continue her career in nursing, she sadly lost her fight for life last night.

I only met Joan once but she was certainly not someone you'd forget in a hurry! Although outspoken, she was intelligent and highly articulate, and had a bright future ahead of her in the medical profession. She will be sadly missed.

I can only hope she's found her peace now.
