Over the last few days I have had Janice out in her borrowed wheel chair, so that she can get some very Fresh North East air into lungs.
But I have realised that when I am behind one of these things, I am not at my best.
I feel as if everyone is stepping in front of me or they walk out of shops without looking. The problem being that with this lewy bodies dementia, I find that I am trying to plan my route well away from everyone else and more or less in a straight line, but it never works.
All I hear is the muffled voice saying, "calm down dear we are obviously invisable", by then the old horns are up and I start to steam with frustration.
Today we went to a shopping mall, and found that people find the worst possible places to stop and talk, and they will not move out of the way to let anyone past.
This has all brought a different meaning to life over that last few weeks, as I have realised that my judgement is not what it used to be, so I am having to try and think fast, while negotiating all the cluttered isles in the shops, without causing any harm to my dear wife and without knocking some of the racks over.
Still its doing my weight the world of good as I have lost around 8 lbs in just over two weeks, and I have got muscles that I had forgotten all about.
Sadly the boss is putting on weight being stuck in a chair all day, so I feel sorry for her.
Life goes on.
