Paraplegic and confined to a wheelchair but Thaivisa's top poster is "still standing" in Thailand

Recommended Posts

Well what a pleasant thread.......5170.gif.f10378adcc4cedbd8c880b2012a59c1a.gif

 

Colin and I have been cyber friends for years, perhaps the same attitude to stuff took us that way. Colin should be an inspiration to us all, when life gets tough just crack on looking for that rainbow...

 

Think this thread and it's comments have shown Colin his input on TVF has made a difference to peoples lives, whether a laugh, agreed fact, whatever, knowing folk admire will bring a smile to the chap (and me)....When I read it a song (as usual) came into my head...

Speechless.

I fully appreciate that Colin is happy but oh man, I feel sorry for this guy. What a terrible life.

A terrible marriage followed by death threats and then an accident that left him a paraplegic. Then living in fear from attack in his village. (Why do people think being the "only Farang in the village" is some sort of badge of honor?). 

 

I guess a lot of Thailand tragics exhibit this Stockholm syndrome. But best luck to you Colin, you're one of the good guys!

Well folks i have had a quite interesting, in fact crazy life since 1996.

When Rooster contacted me about visiting and doing an article, i thought what the hell, go for it.

There are a few members here who think i am a fake paraplegic, so i agreed to the interview just to prove them wrong.

As can be seen i held nothing back, it is a very accurate description of my life in Thailand.

Hi Colin , you had me worried till i started reading through it all , (i also from Preston ) i thought it maybe my old friend big "C" who i've lost track of since i came here permanently 2006, , straight talking also sometimes gets me into trouble , i don't live with permanently tattooed rose tinted glasses , tell it as is , all the best to you and the misses ,

Not many of her sort about today Colin...I have similar GF and feel lucky to have met her...as she does me...as I said in an early comment give her a kiss and big hug a she is worth her weight in gold and get her to listen to this......

Hey Colin, sorry to hear you had to endure all this, but I do believe you have a pearl of a wife, many of us will never get that connection!
But besides your wife, you now know that many people on TV are ready to know you better and if ever help needed, I am sure many will act upon your first sign!

Really fascinating article.

You're a great guy, Colin. You're one of the best on Thaivisa.

Well done! Good luck to you always.

Still standing, and standing tall.  Sorry I never got up to see you the way we discussed a few months back but I am returning to live in my home country with my Thai wife who has dual citizenship and likes living there. Best wishes and sorry for not keeping my word as catching up with you. Leaving within the fortnight.

Bluesofa must be p+++ed again, no sarci quips from him yet, come on mate dont let us down, we are waiting.

He's about somewhere Col' but in the meantime 'ere's one for you .. 

I had one of those catheter things in hospital a few yrs ago .. The Doc' on his rounds one morning said " How's you're micturition today Mr Grazing ? " " My what " I said .. " Can you pass water ? " he replied ..  thinking he wanted a drink I said " well at a stretch I can but it might be easier if you get it yourself " .. 

When the time came to remove it the nurse said " do you want to do it yourself but I wouldn't advise it " and she weren't kidding about that but in forra penny .. she pulled the screens around and waited outside .. I grabbed my Hampton with one hand the pipe with t'other shut my eyes and just pulled .. I yelped like a dog with urine spraying everywhere as it came out and the nurse says " Are you OK Mr Grazing ? " " yea no worries I'm just p*ssing about " was all I could reply .. 

Excellent write about about you're life Col' keep it going brother there's plenty of mileage in you ..

No disrespect to yourself but she is obviously a keeper and Colin deserves sole, long term ownership.
