Malcolm had experienced symptoms of vasculitis over a number of years but put it down to simply getting older. He was eventually diagnosed with vasculitis manifesting as mononeuritis multiplex.
It was ten years ago in September 2010 that some of the signs started to appear. I had been conscious of losing energy for some time but put this down to getting older. I was 57 years old and had never before experienced ill health.
In the summer of 2010, Amanda and I moved to the country for a change of lifestyle while we prepared to develop our international employment law service. There followed a period of glorious weather, and we began to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. We had long country walks and began to feel and look fitter.
