PRIDE, Is it pride that keeps me going with this difficult daily routine looking after my lovely wife of 50 plus years when carers don't turn up and there is a thousand and one things to do. I sometimes say why us??? Is it because I am proud the way my wife copes with this terrible illness. PREJUDICE, Is it prejudice that stops family, friends and neighbours coming to offer help with everyday tasks without having to be asked. Is it prejudice that makes most people in town avoid you when your wife is singing in the wheelchair as you are going around the shops.
