About me

PROFILE:
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.

Welcome to my blog.

Whether this is your first time visiting my blog, or you have followed me closely over the years, wondering if I had slipped off the face of this earth; welcome to my blog! So, what did happen to Elaine Benton? Where have I been all this time, and “what’s the story?”, I hear you ask. It isn’t a pleasant tale, and I was hesitant to tell it at first, but as it now has a happy ending and may give others hope, I felt compelled to share with you my experiences and knowledge gained along the way.

As we all know, each Parkinson’s patient is different – there are no two cases alike. However, sharing information with one another is vital, and it is for this reason, I decided to blog again. This may take a while, as my typing is now extremely slow. I’m known for my straight talk and I never sugar coat what I have to impart. So, grab a cup of coffee, make yourself comfortable and I shall endeavour to bring you up to speed.


When I first started blogging, I found there was so much to learn, I was not short of content and had much to say. In the early stages of Parkinson’s, it was easy to see the funny side of things, and although I always wrote about relevant topics, some of which were quite serious, there was always an undertone of my sarcastic dark British humour.

The last year has been a rough journey and there were times that i didn't think I'd make it, but I'm one tough cookie and I'm still here. Friends came to stay and we had the most wonderful time, but there's always that point at which guests have to leave,and I hate saying goodbye, so instead I say see you soon.
