She is putting on a brave face but I know things will get much worse.

My 22-year-old son has a brain tumour and requires an operation.

Two years ago, my 25-year-old daughter went missing.

I’ve also had to cope with the death of my dad from Covid last year.

I am 58 and my wife is 56. My doctor has put me on medication and I’ve been offered therapy.

But how will that help when I know what lies ahead?
