About me

I have been writing poetry and stories since I was a child, and a love of reading was instilled in me from an early age. I am passionate about writing, and hope you enjoy the books I have written. Whilst most of you sleep soundly in your beds, like many Parkinson’s patients, insomnia dictates, so during those hours that sleep eludes me, the house is tranquil and quiet, an atmosphere perfect to immerse myself in writing. My life has been a series of strange events, which have without doubt contributed to my creativity. To publish anything is to bear one’s soul to the world. It is to stand naked and let everyone see who you really are. I have poured my heart and soul out on paper and I hope to share this journey, immersing you in a story, capturing your attention and firing the imagination. Through my writing and public speaking I hope to bring greater awareness to the general public about living with chronic disease.

Could it be simply Vitamin D?

After having a blood test a few years ago, my Vitamin D level was so low, I was advised to take Vitamin D drops daily, which I have been doing ever since. I take them at breakfast so that I wont forget later in the day. I think that anyone suffering chronic illness or disability, might find themselves at home inside most of the time, and thereby not exposed to the natural sunlight where most gain a sufficient amount of Vitamin D. I am sure this is a common problem - being stuck indoors, it may not be possible, or the weather not permitting to be outside. I knew that Vitamin D was important, and had read up on it, but was very surprised to read an article about the properties possibly helping to slow down the progression of Parkinson's, particularly with those cases that appear to be hereditary. Take a look at the article on The Michael J. Fox Foundation site and read for yourself some very interesting findings.
