    Type your commentHi Spiceman, 

    I live in Suffolk on my own with no family, a few friends but mainly not close some only in U.K. for limited time, lucky them!
    Are you anywhere near me or other end of country? Haha

    I help a few people who have a family member with Alzheimer’s & Dementia as I went through this with mummy all on my own so have lots of knowledge to draw from.
    You are right it is good to help others, I believe in pay it forward.

    This time of year when it’s cold I am often bed bound with no assistance have had to cope on my own for last 10 years, shall we say I have my own inimitable way of doing things.
    God bless the person who invented grabbers and electric beds 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    I am very much a night night owl as pain prevents me from sleeping other than in short bursts most of the time.
    My back can go into seizure at anytime with no warning which limits what I do.

    i get great pleasure from being outside in my garden when the weather is better, I crawl round on hands and knees but always have my mb in my pocket in case I need help however that is utter desperation level!

    Currently waiting for a shower to be put in for me, I’ve been without one for 3years having to drive 25mins to a friends house to wash my hair!

    I hope that gives you an idea of my circumstances.

    I am still learning what help exists as it’s hard to find out.

    Take care,

    JC
