This guy kept a video diary for the last 2 years of his life.

Lovely, supportive, loving family.

Lump in my throat watching it

I thought it was a documentary I'd already seen, but it's not.
Will watch now.
So far, so awful.

Oh how horrible.
I have a Ben, think I may go and live on an island somewhere with my boys sad

It is horrific to watch but gives such an insight (from his POV and that of his family and friends)

I think its just so different to any of the usual "drug addict" documentary type programmes that are churned out.

They were such a normal family and you reallise it could just happen to anyone. A very powerful documentary. Should be shown in schools.

I went to school with Ben and he was a lovely happy and intelligent boy then. I met back up with him about a year before he died and i was shocked at the change in him. but i never judged him and he still had his wicked sense of humour. god bless you and rest in peace Ben xxx
