Blind dating rotten
Most of the “caregivers” seem to be bitter and angry about the hand that’s been dealt them, and mad at their spouses.At times I get frustrated with John but never angry with him. He is ill, and sometimes he’s hard to please, but I know I’d be more difficult.I want to explain to the woman who complains that husband no longer interacts with her so she’s feeling lonely that her “feel sorry for herself attitude” will only drive away folks who would be friendly. And yes, sometimes even sweet John can be difficult.He wants to do for himself, but then he complains when I don’t help him with something little.On their wedding certificate it says Paul’s previous marriage was “dissolved”.This refers to his marriage of convenience in 1977 to Portuguese model Teresa Fernandez which ended in 2005.
The marriage brought joy to Paul who suffered heatbreak in 2005 when his boyfriend Brendan Murphy died suddenly aged 49.
She was able to relax while I made sure everything was hot and ready.
I read about an elderly widowed blind man who was being shown around his new apartment in a care facility.
I thought the two groups would help provide answers but I’m giving up on the Spousal Caregivers group.
Sadly I don’t want their attitude to rub off on me.
