Just to say thanks for all the wonderful support and encouragement - much needed and much appreciated . Where would I be without you all ? This week has been the week from hell . V's OCD has been in super-hyper overdrive all week . She has a riser recliner chair with special moulding in the back to try to keep her posture better , i.e. stop her spending hers days leaning sideways over the arm of the chair . Every day she asks me to put her in the position recommended by the OT , " sifted "(she means tilted ) back with her feet up . As soon as I put her in the position she changes it and then goes on altering the chair's position endlessly . And I mean endlessly - 14 &1/2 hours non stop Monday ( it was wet and we couldn't go out and the same every day except when we went shopping or out for a push somewhere .Up ,down , legs up legs down on and on and on . If I leave the room she shouts for me until I come back in . If I unplug the wretched chair she doesn't stop going on about it until I plug it back in . I can't distract her with anything and if I ignore the requests to put it in "sift" then the question is just repeated and I am wicked and unkind not to do as she asks .Each time she promises faithfully that she won't change it and of course each time she does . I know it is not her fault and she can't help it , but boy is it difficult to deal with .So tomorrow I doubt if I shall need to cry or look hang dog as I am now wild eyed and totally manic . Hey ho what jolly life we all lead.
love to you all Georgepa
