My lovely children
I am a genealogist and family historian. I am also a proofreader and editor. But mainly I am a mum with Multiple Sclerosis. It is not always easy. I had to pack my job in, which I loved, ten years ago. Since then I have concentrated on my children and
getting more education so I can work from home. My daughter grew up quickly and mothers me as much as I mother her. She changed from my daughter to my carer. My son cannot remember me ever not having MS. He cannot remember me going to him and picking
him up. He can't remember me playing on the floor with him. I had to be a different mum to him. He cannot remember a time when he didn't have to fetch and carry for me. How do you get through all this and still be a good mum? I am not sure but my children
both tell me I am a good mum. That's what counts.
What about my marriage? My husband works full time, comes home, tidies up, washes up, does the laundry and still tells me he loves me. I feel like I failed at it all, but it's what they all think that
I love my family
