Ah the end is just the beginning…
GREAT NEWS! Ian was discharged from the hospital this afternoon! He is going to Bristol for a while to recouperate with his family and asks that people leave off contacting him directly for a bit as he’s got a month’s worth of email/messages to get through already and his phone is playing up at the moment. He hopes to be back to his usual online presence soon, but for now just wants to relax and enjoy being ‘on the outside’. As always, thanks for all your messages and kind words, and you are welcome to continue leaving messages in the guestbook here.
Ian and his mum have made a formal complaint to the hospital today, and Ian wrote the following about his experience last night around 10pm:
Yes 5 years ago I was discharged from Salford Hope hospital. It was quite a ordeal the last part of my recover in the hospital. I would say this is where things went wrong, as you can read in my complaint.
I'm out of hospital and relaxing with family. Please dont flood me with replies if you can help it i will respond to everyone in due time

The first thing I did when I left?
My mortgage adviser (Billie) came to my flat with the papers to sign. She was amazing and honestly without her persistence, I most likely would have lost my great apartment at Islington Wharf.
Then I slept and disappeared down to my parents place for a week!
Of course my thank you and thank you 2 posts capture my state/thoughts of amazement living through something most don’t. No need to do a bad version of timehop anymore.
I’ll be celebrating with friends and family this weekend… Thank you everybody! These two tweets really got me…

Oh and I had a totally surprise to see my my email I sent (I forgot many things around that time) to the UK Wired after seeing their top 100 UK people earlier in the year.
