You're almost right Mr A, 16 years between me and oh.
"You're only as old as the women you feel!" Is the catchphrase that's followed us through the last 20 years...
Oh has absolutely no grasp of modern technology or any interest in mastering it😄 which is why I'm on here and he's not. If it's not face to face he's not interested and even then he can be an unsociable fella and not want to join in.
"Opposites attract" is another phrase that springs to mind for me and the oh.
In terms of advocacy, oh is acutely dyslexic and we put together anything he wants to say before hand, write it down and practice. He actively asks me to speak for him in appointments as he gets in a verbal muddle under pressure. He'll have a go if he can, otherwise he just tells the Dr we've written it down and I'm reading it.
Janet, I hope all goes well, wishing you all the best for Christmas. I'm with you on the positive mindset and humour. There are several posts that have made me laugh out loud, I was brought up on irreverence 😄
Although I may show my worries here, I am very good at switching on the positive, in control face when I need it. :)
