I have been the sole carer for the past 5 years for both my parents. My dad has Parkinson’s Disease and my mother had bowel cancer. Unfortunately my mother has passed on 2years ago now so its just me and dad. I am so glad for the support and love from all my friends and family, but it is hard. Having to deal with issues in such short amount of time has provided me with a strong foundation of what life will bring.
