Well you probably know I've been having a rough time lately, My son Liam has Down's Syndrome, and is struggling to live independently and Al, my husband is very ill with heart problems which are untreatable. On top of that my eldest son is a recovering heroin addict and alcoholic and is terminally ill from complications due to Crohn's Disease - not related to his past addictions at all, my brother has narcolepsy and cataplexy and I look after my lovely elderly dad who lives next door. You might think this is me having a good old moan but that's far from the truth. In amongst all this trauma I continue to search for those beautiful moments that make life worth living, of which there are many. As part of my search I've returned to a journey I started many years ago, an exploration of self. What makes me feel the way I do, think the thoughts I think and behave this way.
