Beam me up

Radiotherapy consists of lying on a machine which beams radioactivity into you. You have to lie still so the beams hit the right bits. You don’t feel a thing – except soreness later – for which they give you a big vat of skin cream.

It all seems fairly innocuous until you remember that this is actually highly powerful radiation which zaps everything in its path.

Anyway, first one over with, twenty four to go! Last session is on 30 December.

If anyone had told me a year ago I’d be cut open, poisoned and irradiated all in the interests of good health, I wouldn’t have believed them.
