My time here is drawing to a close. I couldn’t have been at a better place to calm my mind at one of the most challenging times in my life.
I am also grateful to so many people who have supported me during my struggles as I have reluctantly accepted that I can no longer provide the level of care that my dear wife deserves. In particular, Leah Bisiani who has provided exceptional support as I have walked down this tortuous path::
I’m sure my mum would want to say ‘thanks, duck for supporting that lad of mine’.
