The Nobel Prize

Today the Nobel Prizes were handed out, and I have to say that I think it’s pretty cool that the Organisation for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), won the Nobel Peace Prize. Especially since I used to work there! It was the last place I worked at in The Hague before I got sick, and one of the places that I miss the most.

It’s a bit like having known someone before they got famous, and you can say “I used to know that person”. Except I get to say “oh yeah, I used to work there”. Silly perhaps…

I do miss working at the OPCW. It was busy and a lot of work, but well worth it. There are days when I really miss my old life. Not only the “not being sick”, but the work that I did and the friends that I had. These days my life is only a shadow of what it used to be in some ways. I’m still getting used to it. Even after all these years.
