Feel Good Friday

Feel Good Friday

As we come to the end of another busy week and are mindful of all the challenging world events, let us reflect on these words by Professor Stephen Hawking, who died this week on Wednesday 14th March 2018, having lived an incredibly fulfilling life, despite his disabilities:

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what make the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”

Whatever you may be going through at the moment, hang in there, don’t give up. Let us know how your week has been, good or bad, we are all here for each other. We are listening and offer our support. If you have had a good week, we’d love to celebrate with you.

Sending you our very best wishes,

MAS Nurse.

I lost my sight 34 years ago yet have lived an incredibly fulfilling life too.

Having a disability doesn't mean we can't...just means we do what we want in another way.

We take what we have, just as every person does, and use it

Having a really rough day. I cope daily with M.E and Hashimoto's; my husband has M.E too (It's how we met). I usually stay pretty positive but my dad's health is worsening and that is so relentlessly sad and stressful watching him slowly become a shell of who he was. My mum had Alzheimer's and died in 2014. There has been so much to deal with since then and I am exhausted.

Your Dad is still there inside - know it’s hard - see him and treat him with the love and respect you’ve always had for him - like yourself - he has gone through hell losing his wife to Alzheimer’s - he will be feeling very lost, sad and missing her. If you can - contact age UK - they have outings /lunch days for your Dad to meet up with others in the same situation as your Dad - and if you can get him to go - use that time for yourself - me time - treat yourself.

All best

He's in a nursing home now and not well at all. He had a woman friend but she's moved away now. There have been lots of lies and deceit but I still cling on to who I thought dad was. It's the only way I can cope. I don't live near him so have to travel up about once a month. It's so hard.

An amazing incredible man who didn't let his terrible illness define him, a true inspiration to us all.
