I’d worked all my life, but when I developed osteoporosis, pancreatitis and chronic back pain in my late 40’s, I was forced to leave my job. I found it really hard to leave the house. I became increasingly isolated, and suffered from terrible bouts of depression. So I began to drink a lot. My mental state and being stuck in the house made it really difficult to do the things that needed doing.”
