This week I was interviewed by the BBC to help shed a light on the struggles of being a paid and non-paid carer for a loved one. As I’ve previously touched on, my Mum has younger on-set Dementia.

I still love him today, I mean, who doesn’t? but as young pissed off punk rock and hardcore fan, he was the pinnacle for me at that time.
