I did an interview for Prima magazine late last year and it's finally appeared in the April issue. I am really pleased with it as it's well written and gives links to both the Alzheimer's Research Trust and my current fund-raising page. I love the way they've put the titles in purple which is the ART's colour (and my favourite colour!).
I hope that if anyone who is caring for someone with dementia reads it then they will feel less alone and perhaps go and look at the website for more information. Being a carer is very isolating, especially caring for someone with mental health problems as there is such a stigma attached to it. I found that lots of so-called friends just deserted me as they were frightened of it. I think that's another side of the illness that I need to address - the effect on the carer, family and friends.
