Wildlife pic­tures to ease the pain

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - Mrs S Bet­teridge Hayes Have you taken pho­to­graphs from around the Uxbridge area that should be shared with our read­ers? Send them to ros.collins@ trin­i­tymir­ror.com

I’M writ­ing this short let­ter to thank you all ever so much for shar­ing my pho­tos in your pa­per.

I suf­fer from a chronic pain syn­drome (fi­bromyal­gia).

If I have a fairly bet­ter day I’ll take my cam­era out with me on a slow short walk to one of my favourite green spots, in which I en­joy sit­ting.

Hayes has some of the loveli­est hid­den green spa­ces if you know where to look.

Some days I’m in too much pain to ven­ture out so I just sit in my gar­den wait­ing for the wildlife to show up. Tak­ing pho­to­graphs helps me cope with each painful mo­ment of each day, so when I see any of my pho­to­graphs in the Gazette it fills me with pride and joy and it makes my day.

It’s so worth all that pain from walk­ing to and back from any of my green havens. I just wish more peo­ple would send in their pho­tos for us all to en­joy.

A very big thank you.
