So the last couple of days have been Okay-ish, not as great as they had been but we’re getting through.
Unfortunately another problem has arisen. Nan seems to be struggling with her hearing. The TV has to be turned up so loud that it is now impossible to concentrate, so nan and I hardly talk in the evenings. This is horrible, but nan mumbles a question which I can’t hear, she gets frustrated having to repeat and I get frustrated that she won’t turn the TV down for me to hear. She gets nervous if I have the remote so I can’t turn it down.
So now I am having to learn that I have to raise my voice and E NUN CEE ATE, which is tricky when I am so used to talking as I am going up the stairs, or talking to myself in the kitchen. Because nan is struggling to hear she has started following me again, constantly shouting “where are you” even when I’m only feet away. And by the time she’s got to me she’s forgotten why she’s following me, and gets cross that I have led her around for nothing.
I guess she’s constantly feeling more and more lost.
Trouble is she is reluctant to have a hearing test, I guess it’s another thing she’ll have to admit to having lost control of. So I’m just going to have to carry on innovating, and drinking Dr Pepper to get me through without pulling my hair out.
Will be posting soon about nan’s reaction to her life book, which has been fantastic, but YouTube is being so slow I’ve given up tonight.
