Which John Duthie?

john duthie taking part in immersion therapyThe personal website of John Duthie. Not a famous poker player. The other famous John Duthie.

In life, things don’t work out as planned. Commencing at age 44, John was hit by a tree; died; paralysed from the chest down; died again; developed syringomyelia and associated severe pain; betrayed by a friend; went through separation and divorce; attempted self-harm.

But that’s ok. Bad things happen in life. The important thing is how you respond to the circumstances. Good things can happen as a result of the bad times. John has done ok, but it took time, effort and resilience. And more. The photo is from an immersion therapy session with Determined2, where John’s underwater record is now 32 laps. His swimming record now stands at 40 laps, and before the accident could only manage to swim 2 laps!
