Just got to get this off my chest!! Today, after collecting my husband from his Day Care Centre I asked him if he wanted to go into our local market and have a drink, as he used to like going into town on his own (many moons ago) for a wander and often stopped at this market café for a sandwich and a cuppa. He is unfortunately in permanent care now because of his Parkinsons Disease and Alzheimers and I was pleased he wanted to go for a drink instead of straight back to his Care Home. I sat him down and went to order the drinks at the counter, keeping my eye on him and as usual he was shuffling about in his chair, moving it backwards and forwards bent over and moving the other chairs at the table, as he usually does. I overheard one of the other customers and a café worker saying to one another what a strange man and then whilst laughing one of them said 'Not sure what he is about' I was so cross that I said to them my husband has Parkinsons Disease and Alzheimers. They both looked very embarrassed and said 'sorry' D asked what that was about and I spun him some yarn!! Don't know why but I felt so annoyed even though I know it is out of ignorance but hopefully they will think twice before making unkind remarks again.
