X - eXonerated. #atozchallenge Care for the Carers

Two days after her 73rd birthday my Mum took her final breath. She had Alzheimers and Motor neurone disease. For her final 3 months I was her main carer. A privilege I am grateful for and will cherish forever. This years #atozchallenge theme will focus on being a carer / care-giver.

Remember to care for the carers.  

X - eXonerated 

So many of Mum's friends said they would never have guessed that it was me that would take on the role as her carer:

Me the black sheep.

Me who taught her how to swear.

Me who fought back and returned the key.

Me who greyed her hair.

Me who travelled far away.

Still they say I'm hard to understand. 

All the frustration, tears and pain I caused in the beginning 


by the love, support and care they witnessed in the end.
