Over the few weeks I have noticed that my wife, who has VaD, is beginning to accept that items on the news have also happened to her. Following an item on this evenings news relating to the rollercoaster accident at Alton Towers, she came out with the remark that 'that had happened to me'. Now I know that when she was 12/13 she did has an accident on the big dipper at Barry Island where she broke 4 teeth, somehow hitting the steel safety bar. As far as I am aware this was the only incident as she would not go on them since we have been together this last 53 years. Another item a couple of days ago mentioned 'Hadrian's Wall'. "Remember when we walked along part of that with the children" was the comment, but we have never been to Hadrian's Wall I replied, yes we have it was behind the caravan. I then twigged she was confusing 'Offa's Dyke' on the Welsh Border. Thinking back there have other times when parallels have been drawn to news items, some are possible, but others are a complete fabrication. I am at a loss on how to deal with these, do I correct her or just let them pass without comment. Can anyone offer suggestions please.
