    Mostly Not Dumb

    Considering Professor Hawkins I have found it disturbing how many people who after talking to me express suprise that I am very intelligent. Maybe it's my face? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜x

    Yeah and then thereโ€™s the bit when you suddenly become almost deaf the moment you have to start using a wheelchair. HELLO Iโ€™M JJST GOING TO CHANGE YOUR DRESSING. ๐Ÿ™„

      I've found that the older I get everyone thinks I'm deaf and stupid. Who cares! It's what I think that matters ๐Ÿ˜›

          No, it's not your face Matthew, it comes with the territory.

          I refuse point blankly to engage with anyone who doesn't engage directly with me and have bluntly asked others as to why they're talking to me as if I were a 4yo - I take no prisoners. I never get used to it either....

              Like Matthew, I'd love to see you in action too, Ellie.

              Last time we were at the airport I went through security in my powerchair. The security person looked at Stuart and said... can she walk at all ?

              I won't share our reaction ! When we complained to special assistance they said it was typical and they were working on it.

              Love Debbie x

                  There must be a reason why this happens. Do we just associate wheelchairs with pushchairs or prams. It's very odd. ๐Ÿค”

                    Look looking after someone with MND does not mean you understand what it's like to live with it. Please understand.

                      Matthew there are more than just mnd people in wheelchairs. I wasn't trying to pretend I have mnd. That's not what I was referring to. Just why people treat wheelchair users that way.
                      YES I am a carer and I am allowed to present my thoughts just as much as anyone else. As a carer I find your comments offensive and I think others will feel the same.

                        I'm sorry you feel that way. After all I have tried to do for you. Please leave me alone from here on in.

                              Okay so you saying I have been offensive and most of your posts are about you and your issues. When they relate to your caring no worries but the other ones I find offensive. I may feel differently tomorrow because I have MND.
