I have the most amazingly wonderful family & friends
My husband who is always there for me, does most of the housework, helps me do stuff when I need it and all this ontop of leaving for work 7am mon-fri often getting home as late as 8pm.
My son (20) who cooks for me when he is home from uni and keeps me ( & my wheatbags )company in the wee small hours when i can't sleep so that Dad gets a good night & rings me often from uni for a chat.
My sister who often agrees to take me & my lovely Mum out for girly days - me either struggling with my stick or in the wheelchair & Mum who is virtually blind and needs guiding - she never complains and we have a laugh but I'm sure she needs a G&T or 2 when she gets home
My Aunt and Uncle who are always "open" for coffee and choccie biccies with a free shoulder thrown in!
My Father-in-law, who has dementia , is always insisting that I do too much and makes me sit and rest and buys me chocolate flakes everytime I visit him.
My amazing friends who take me out, help with housework and are just there whenever I need them.
Writing this has made me realise how lucky I am and that just maybe if I didn't have HMS I wouldn't have known just how wonderful they all are !!!!????
