    Not too good as of late. My illnesses are a lot worse and I'm in perpetual pain. But I'm alive and i know there is some poor soul out there worse off than me. Thank you so much for asking.

    Yes, thank you, My Wife is my full-time carer and she makes sure we get all were entitled to. She really is an angel. But being a full-time carer has its own let downs, we have not had a holiday in around fifteen years. But other than that, things are as good as can be expected. I'm incredibly grateful for your interest, it means a lot. Thanks, Hugh.

    Of course, we're always here for a chat Hugh @beaker1965 :) It sounds like your wife is a fantastic source of support for you. 

    I found some information about holidays on the Carers Support Centre website. I'm not sure if it'll be relevant to you both, but it might be worth a look!
