I'm Idris. Obviously this is not my real name. It's a Doctor Who thing.

I've been blogging for years about my life and the things I like, which includes some of the experiences of looking after my Mum who has PSP. But that's only got a readership of a few dozen interested friends. To write about my experiences as a carer to an audience of people who know exactly what it's like, or want to find out more, will be a really great opportunity.

I just hope I won't be too boring....

  • Someone who starts with "a Doctor Who thing" could never be boring...!

  • Thank you, glad I've got fellow fans on here!

  • Hello Idris, welcome to HealthUnlocked. Thank you for joining. I am sure your blogs won't be boring...I think this will be a great place to not only let off a bit of steam, but allow others to see that they are not on their own. Happy blogging :-)

  • Letting off steam, yes, definitely. I just hope it doesn't become JUST that, as I've got quite a lot of steam at times! It will be nice to know that people who understand are reading, though.

  • Definitely won't be boring! I look forward to reading your blogs!!
