About Mick C Gorman

Slightly damaged old bloke who is plodding on with more than a little help from a great wife. I have been married for 35 years and have 2 grown up children.

Life has taken a few interesting turns so far but this Epilepsy thing beats the lot!

There is still plenty of time. :-D
