Four months before the wedding day, David’s carer left us.  So whilst we searched for the perfect replacement, I became David’s full time carer….which believe me, is pretty intense and sometimes exhausting. Life with David is never dull but I was trying to manage my own work, wedding plans, gym………………………………….

Will you ……?

We had been together just over 2 years.  Everything was going really well; so the more rational amongst you might ask the question: “Why rock the boat?”.  Why not just carry on living together happily? I know how much getting married means to Nicky, and I love her very much.………………………………….

The Hardest Part

You will know by now that I threw myself into this relationship with every bit of strength I had.  I chose to take on David’s care and I wanted to get heavily involved with sailing and rugby.  We have a fantastic life.  It’s very busy, often exhausting keeping up with………………………………….

Learning to Fly

I learned very early on that life with David was never dull.  There was always something going on and I found myself in a new circle of people I met through his activities and interests.  Many of them were also disabled, some with spinal injuries but I also met new………………………………….
