Today is hard, I honestly don’t know who else to turn to. So tearful. Why me ?  I want the me back. I have lost so much since January. My independence, my driving licence, My eyesight. I can’t see life getting any better. Yes I’m here but this isn’t my life, it’s gone, been taken from me!  I have 2 children who are losing their mum, bit by bit and I’m frightened by what the future holds. All I want to do is cry.
