First, I thank to all of you who responded to my posts. All I wanted was a piece of advice or possible suggestion. I know that there are agencies which place people au pair in host families. I also know that there are agencies in UK who place people with elderly who need company in a house sharing deal. I thought someone may suggest something or in the best case know a person who needed assistance in exchange for house sharing.
But why all the heated discussion after words?
I might be over-optimistic but not silly. Because, someone said that my post was silly. Where was the silliness? I was not asking for something extraordinary but for something real or even a common practice. The difficulty in our case has to do with the fact that we are two persons. But silliness?.... That might be more offensive than the phrase “you should stay there where you belong”, a phrase one of you said.
Because that particular phrase can be taken at face value: it means exactly what it insinuates. However, in the context of what it had been said before- about the particular hardships one might encounter there, noting the didn’t want to be discouraging – that phrase might (I said might) not be offensive. But just a moment. Why we people, especially the ones with the disabilities, should be that defeatist? Why we should stay home and not try our best? This is not a good piece of advice to RA patients. Because finally that would have as a result people defeated, without dreams, depressed.
As far as whether or not my post was not appropriate for tha site... I thought, that RA patients can discuss subjects related to their situation and not only medical. I also thought that RA patients can easily related to my case and give a piece of advice. That's all.
