PLEASE CAN YOU IDENTIFY ANY GRAMMAR OR PUNCTUATION ERRORS-RIGHT DOWN TO THE MISUSE OF COMMAS AND SEMI-COLONS ETC.
HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED SINCE THIS IS CRUCIAL FOR ME IN TERMS OF WORK AND I AM NOT GREAT AT ENGLISH.

THANK YOU.

Death? Usually, it is a subject of which no one dares speak of, almost forbidden territory; at least it was in my solemn upbringing, seen as an event which somehow does not affect anyone dear or significant to me – only others. This indeed was the concept I continued to perceive and naturally accept back then. How immature was I?

Gran had been ill for some time. Days, weeks, months passed me by in a haze, as she drifted in and out of consciousness. It wasn’t long before her diagnosis was confirmed. It was cancer. From that grim day on, Gran's health continued to deteriorate, being drawn ever further in a rapid downward spiral. Even though I wasn't supposed to, even though no one wanted me to understand the depths of her illness, I knew she was not herself anymore; I knew that she was not my Gran. Every hour of every day suddenly evolved into a harrowing mix of desperation and fear. What was the outcome… death? It seemed inevitable. Feelings of dread and anguish were crushing me, but nothing could compare to how desperate the situation felt. I had not the slightest inkling of what I could do to help.

Gran and I were as one. We bore an unbreakable connection, a relationship not typical of any other grandmother and grandson. Ours was indeed something unique, significant, one that flourished year after year like the small crimson rose tree in our rear garden. Though today, the unkempt flowerbed where the rose plant once smartly stood no longer exists. It withered in the blazing sun just as our relationship had – unmoved in its roots, but no longer thriving.

Try The Usborne Guide to Better English. It's what all teachers (as a foreign language and at main stream schools in the UK) should have. Good luck!
