Photo taken by first-time contributor nomaggsrush, a woman currently living near Reading UK, however, she shall soon be “going nomadic” in retirement. She has had unipolar depression since her late teens, possibly due to a gene and a personality disordered mother. Unfortunately due to a couple of events (not due to her mother) she also has had PTSD for 18 years. She has spent her working life as a dual registered general and mental health nurse. She has a particularly warped sense of humour, like most nurses she has encountered – her first date with her late husband (a fireman) was spent trying to top each other’s gory experiences. He won.
About this photo: “St. Lucian Sunset describes how lucky I have been to have had real love in my life. My husband, my children, my brother and my best friend. I had my first solo holiday at a wonderful spa in St Lucia in 2004, the first real relaxation for many years.”
