just thought i'd share an experience we're all oh so familiar with.... :roll:
i went up to the high street earlier to do some xmas shopping. :gift: like all us pacers, ive got as much on line as possible and the rest in little short journeys.
i'd got to that wibbly/dizzy stage :weird: and was just in lidl getting some bread before going home. queued for a while and was thankfully about to pay when this woman came up to the till with some flowers and said, 'i did just queue a moment ago, but i want these as well, can you just put them through for me?' :puff:
when she saw me looking at her she said, 'oh you don't mind do you dear? ive got a bad leg...'
i didn't really mind as the queue wasn't too bad and it was only one thing as opposed to several trolley loads, but it is typical of the way people look at us and see an able bodied person, never dreaming that that person might be about to keel over :roll:
she thanked me again at the end which was nice of her, but i couldn't help saying,' that's ok, i know exactly how you feel, ive got ME', which of course she didn't understand at all.
kate helped someone at her shop the other day who actually had a little card saying something like, 'ive got CFS so may need help/if you find me in a heap here's what to do' or something similar :shock: now [b:3bf5f27fa7]where[/b:3bf5f27fa7] do you get those?! :o
hope i haven't sounded too grouchy, was just one of [i:3bf5f27fa7]those[/i:3bf5f27fa7] situations that only other pacers will understand...
oh, and had my DLA turned down guess will just appeal in the new year.
