    Hi Matthew,

    Also my best wishes for a happy retirement.

    As it does seem that you are pushed as well as pulled I understand why you would feel a bit uncomfortable at the moment.

    From my experience it's important as others have said to find some other things to do to keep yourself occupied and I hope you have some things?

    Happy retirement Matthew x I feel your pain x I continued travelling to London for a year after diagnosis and it was becoming harder and harder, the train staff even had to help me on the train each day .... as much as I don’t want to be at home it’s much better than the struggles traveling x enjoy the things you can do x all the best x

    Matthew good luck in retirement.


    My husband is a bit bemused with what I call medical retirement, he is only 56.

    Due to fatigue, sporadic self employment and Lockdown, whilst we looked for what up with him.

    That he is retired, I don't think has sunk in.

    Due to arm/hand onset all his hobbies are lost.

    Except, TV, music and we have just bought a book rest so he can read some physical books we hope.


    Thanks everyone for your support and advice, cannot believe we have only about MND for less than 2 months

    Matthew whenever I read something you write it feels heartfelt,sincere, brave , straightforward and always makes me smile .
    I know how hard this is. I share my days w Fritz. I think you both would be great friends. He was always active but faces this w courage and looks forward not backward. Some friends he doesn’t see anymore and I am surprised which ones have stuck by him. The kind of man I imagine you are, you won’t be alone. Every single wonderful person here loves you and depends on your words.

    I think you made the right choice. I looked a few times yesterday to see if you had posted anything. It just means you have more time to talk to us ☺

    Hi Matthew,

    I’m sure you won’t regret this decision in a few weeks. Let us know what you find to occupy your time and we will read with interest.

    I want to say 'Happy Retirement Matthew' but I know this is not how you would have wanted to retire.
    You should definately try and keep in touch with some colleagues, it's the people interactions that will keep you going and you can be the one laughing when they tell you it's chaos in the workplace!

    Would you feel comfortable meeting one or two of them for a pint or them visiting you at home?

    I have had plenty of training on furlough so I'm not bothered by that. The only thing I will miss are my colleagues.
