Is this normal? Does your PSP loved one do some crazy, daring stuff? My guy has always been adventurous, but this was a shocker!!
I had a roof repair company owner looking at our roof yesterday. I knew my guy would hear someone walking on the roof so I told him that the roof company representative was measuring, etc. I then went into the restroom and in those FIVE minutes, my guy got out of bed, walked out the front door and climbed on to the roof with the ladder the roof guy placed on the house. I came out of the restroom and noticed he was gone from the bedroom. I started to call his name and he was no where in the house. I went outside and called him he did not answer. I looked up on the roof at the roof repair representative and he says, "are you looking for your husband?". I said, "yes"! He says, "he is up here"! OMG--I think I went into cardiac arrest! (kidding--but I did freak!) I was in shock! I told the roof guy, "my husband's balance is terrible, he can not see clearly and he will fall"! I didn't even know this roof guy, but he saw the panic on my FACE and knew he better stay right by my husbands side. My husband then says, "honey, can you pass me some trash bags, I need to remove some leaves"! He was so calm and was enjoying himself while I was in a PANIC! I was trying to remain calm, but at the same time was giving him a lecture about his safety and why he went o up on the roof like that! Anyway, he picked up the leaves and the roof representative walked him to the ladder. He first tossed the bag of leaves off the roof and that threw him off balance and the roof rep. grabbed him--he was right on the edge of the roof!! With his vision issues, he had no idea how close to the edge he was. When the roof rep. realized how he was so off balance (like a drunk), he got so close and helped him get to the ladder. He struggled to get on the ladder and I had to tell him to slow down because he was in such a rush to get down. It was so scary. Once he was down, he was white as a ghost, was out of breathe and stumbled his way into the house with me guiding him. He shook as he poured himself a glass of lemonade and then just fell back into his kitchen chair. It took about 10-15 minutes to get his breathing back to normal. We live in South Texas and it was about 88 degrees and humidity is awful right now. He fell while on the roof and gave his knees some terrible scrapes/cuts. In the end, all is okay--he is safe! But my question for you all is does your PSP loved one seem more stubborn and almost daring to do whatever they want? My guy doesn't think about the consequences and it almost seems as if he doesn't care if something does happen to him. Here I am constantly protecting him and he does a crazy thing like climb on the roof when I wasn't looking! Ugh! I was so grateful that the roof guy was young and strong and he could help him down, but I am sure it scared the crap out of him too. That poor roof guy probably never wants to come back here. LOL!
Thank you PSP friends for reading about my PSP problems.
