Does my use of a mobility scooter mean I must be brain dead too?
I may be becoming paranoid but why is it that so many people seem to think that because my legs won't work then neither must my brain? I'm sure they are really only offering help, even though it isn't needed or asked for and that I can usually sort out most situations without their assistance. Their well-meaning intentions by jumping in and "taking control" is driving me mad and really is causing me problems in trying my short-fused impatience to the limit. One of the worst offenders is a gentleman who has been a good friend for over 50 years and I do not want to spoil this relationship by over-reacting. Does anyone out there have similar problems or is it my wish to remain as independent as possible that is aggravating the situation?
