A little bit about me

Hi, my name is Mary and I am a carer tomy hubby Paul who has arthritis which has caused his spine to crumble and cause extensive damage to the nerves. He has very limited mobility, he also has arthritis in his joints. I work 30 hours a week and really love my job, however I know there will come a time when I will have to stop working in order to care full time for Paul.
I have three children, five beautiful grandsons and a crazy dog.


Welcome Mary,

My mum also had severe spinal issues, ultimately diagnosed with hyperostosis - bony outgrowths all down her spine which pinched nerves and caused so many falls that in the end she was forbidden to even try to stand - the day after the hospital had said she was fit for discharge!

How old is your husband? Is he claiming all the benefits he’s entitled to? Do you have an accessible bathroom?
