I experienced my first negative and hurtful comment today. I was at the local garden centre when I bumped into a 'friend' who I hadn't seen for quite a while. "Oh" she said " I hear that you have put Lex into a home now. He didn't seem that bad to me!" Seeing that she hasn't been to our home for years, I don't know what she based this comment on, or even how she knew of his admission to the Care Home. I wanted to tell her that it wasn't a decision taken lightly, but all I could do was mumble something about running late and made a hasty exit. Lots of things came to mind later of course, but it certainly cast a shadow over the rest of my day. Why do people think that they are all experts??????
