Losing both my parents. Mum died suddenly in March 2014 at 73 and my dad in November 2017 at 81. Caring for my dad who had MS after mum died, helping him cope at home for as long as we could, then coping with seeing him go into a nursing home, having to sell their family home to fund his care. All very traumatic and those years learning to cope with grief wasn’t easy at all. Now almost 4 years on I’m just beginning to really enjoy life again.
Living with fibromyalgia since 2016 and the pain of osteoarthritis in my 50s can be challenging at times and makes me appreciate health all the more.
Raising two children together and they make us so proud. We have also been together for 40 years this year and married for 36 years. We have overcome many challenging times and somehow remain closer than ever.
Recently losing almost 2 stone in weight in 2021 and dropping to a size 16 from a 22. Feeling healthier for it.
Having my teeth straightened in 2020 -2021.
Learning its never too late to make changes that increase your self confidence.
To have some lovely holidays in different places like the lake district, or the Greek Islands and maybe even see Australia one day.
