Hi, I am not really superstitious, but..... I do cross my fingers if walking under a ladder, never cut my nails on Friday or Sunday, that's about the extent of it!
Since I was 15 when I first met my stepmother, my life has sort of followed hers. Not that my Dad and her got together for another 10 years. I won't bore you with examples, but there have been a few big ones!
The biggest, which I am getting twitchy about, she was almost the same difference in age to my father, as I am to S. Somehow, long before PSP, I thought I would lose S at roughly the same age as Dad. 72! Tomorrow is S's birthday, yes 72 years old! He was diagnosed with PSP three years ago, had definite symptoms for two years before that, so the 3 - 5 years life span, has been ticked. I know he is probably not going to drop dead tomorrow, all being well, I have arranged a small do, with his son, wife and grandson. Bought decent pressy, trying to ignore my stupid feelings. But how do I get rid of this awful pain in the pit of my stomach, knowing that I am probably going to be proved right. Unfortunately, my gut reaction is rarely wrong!
A very afraid Heady!
