I’m Trish Dainton and I’m a little London lady who uses writing as therapy. Just as well I don’t use it to make a living as I would have starved to death by now!

The last few years have been spent at home caring for my wonderful husband who inherited Huntington’s disease and died aged only 49 in Jan 2011.

During my time at home I have used poetry and prose, written for myself and others, as a way of trying to make sense out of it all.

Now my husband is no longer here, it helps to use written words and pictures to remember him. I hope the words help others.

  1. Just to add…

    I’m not up to speed yet on using the blog on WordPress so do excuse the lack of photos; widgets and links etc.

    • Re’ ‘up to speed’, I am with you on that one. Took me ages to work out and where I only come in to post a blog occasionally by the time I come back in to post I have forgotten how I did things lol.

  2. Hi Trish,

    I’m doing an assignment on Henry Dainton and was wondering if you could tell me where you got all the information for it on? I am planning to make a trip to the national archives myself and I noticed in your article that you found material on him and I was wondering if you could tell me how you did that? Many thanks in advance!
