‘Pain has an element of blank; It cannot recollect When it began, or if there was A time when it was not. It has no future but itself, Its infinite realms contain Its past, enlightened to perceive New periods of pain’ Emily Dickinson, 1924. In 2003 David Pembroke was diagnosed with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a neurode- generative brain disease that has no known cause, treatment or cure.
