Lovely people of this site,
Thank you for all your kind words over the last few weeks. As you will know from Dad (Georgepa) the funeral was a true celebration of my wonderful Mum for which I am truly grateful.
And now to the next part of our lives........
To say I feel empty, depleted, exhausted, emotional would be an understatement- however much you know the inevitable ending for PSP it's still something you are never prepared for and I don't think it's really sunk in yet. Dad and I have kept going for so long, we've held it together, we've been strong and brave so I suppose it's not surprising we both now feel so totally "spent"
Tomorrow my Mum & Dad would have celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary and that just breaks my heart but it also makes me hugely proud that I have had a Mum & Dad whose love was certainly for better or for worse, in sickness & in health and such a magnificent example to me of what true love is..
I cannot express how much I miss my Mum, there is a huge hole in my heart. Dad and I will start a new chapter of our lives - this horrible illness has brought us even closer together and we will continue to support each other and find things to smile about again but at this moment in time, life doesn't feel very jolly..
With this in mind, I'm going to take a break from this site, I want to concentrate on remembering my Mum as the vibrant, dynamic and amazing woman she was and not on the last few years when PSP destroyed so much.
I'm sending you all much love and strength to cope with everyday, every hour and I'm sure I'll pop on now and again when life doesn't feel so raw.....
