My England…

ImageMy England…

…it isn’t just football. It is a knowledge that I belong to a country, that for its size and vulnerability, has stood unconquered for nearly 1,000 years. It is about a heritage of pride, passion, invention and learning.

We have a sense of ‘fair play’ – and we don’t all have a stiff upper lip, despite the portrayal of such… we have emotions, and in recent times we have shown them.

In good times and bad, we have always rallied together to overcome the odds, to beat the odds and to even the odds – we have a military that we can rely on, trust and know we will always be safe with. Our Royal Family, particularly our Queen, is the most famous and respected royal family in the whole world.

Our care for each other, especially to family, friends and neighbours, despite many stories that seem to contradict it, is renown – but never really ‘talked about’.

All this is MY England… it isn’t just football!

My name is Daryl and I was born in October 1965. I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease in June 2011, and I was put on medication, which I believe is helping keep the worst of the condition at bay. In November 2012 I was also diagnosed with the first stages of Parkinson's Disease and I am now two lots of medication for this illness as well. I live in a secure bungalow in an elderly complex in my hometown of Sutton-in-Ashfield and I have support from the social services and a support worker who visits six hours per week to help me live my life as independently as possible. Visit me on my Facebook page... I love life now, and the people in it - so show your support for me and the organisations that support dementia and Parkinson's disease - let's make this small world of ours a much more pleasant place to live in by caring for those that need that little bit more help in life!
