Another Noob clocks In.

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Hi all,

I've finally got round to posting something on here and am looking forward to joining in what looks like a lively forum.

I live in Derby and care full time for my wife (mid 40's) who has mobility problems brought about by Fibro, osteo arthritis, and more that I can't spell and Trigeminal Neuralgia. Some days are better than others, but not many.

My user name refers to my motorbike not my athletic abilities. I still try to get out on it when I can for my couple of hours of escape. Aside from that I take the dog for a walk every day (whether she wants to go or not) and find that it brings me an air of calm outside of th house. Oh, and I've discovered I'm a great cook. Who knew?

My attitude to caring is...
It's the best job in the world, because I get to do it.
It's the worst job in the world, because I have to.

Feel free to ask anything more,

cheers for now..

I know it was a bit early in the a.m. (or was it a late night?).

Do you mean that it is possible for carers to have a regular sleep pattern. How does that work?
Regular sleep pattern???? What's that????? Image Image
Hello Image What bike do you have? I used to ride an 18S AJS (500cc) to work in all weathers. Oh the joy of cracking the ice from frozen gauntlets at the end of the journey Image
