A little update…

I haven’t written to the website for awhile because… well, I simply forgot too!

Tonight is the SuperMoon and also a lunar eclipse, something so rare that the last time it happened was 30 years ago and won’t happen again for another 18 years – so you can bet I will be keeping an eye out in the early hours of the morning for it and post any photos that I can to show here.

I’m doing OK on a personal level, as is my mum and stepdad in their carehome – I suppose I’m lucky in the fact that everything is in place and that when my time comes for going into ‘ga-ga-land’ – I know everything will be as functional as possible for me, because I’ve made damn-well certain that they are!

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!
