ABI a bit OCD?
I’ve probably mentioned I spend some time with groups of people with brain injuries. And you may think it’s not that challenging.
Well, I’m always trying to gather my “words” to sufficiently describe how challenging it is to achieve “things”.
Firstly, I use the term a friend has used for “other things” and say it’s like herding cats! I had to say it! Priceless!
I’m often feeling like I need to make reference to a Tate Gallery exhibition, I was back in 1994 with my then boyfriend. He knew it was wrong but he suggested it looked like the Artist had propped the huge canvases up against walls in a room, sits on a chair with a shot gun before blowing their brains out. I realise that’s dark and that was in an era way before “DARK” was a term. Or “Wrong” or anything!
A perfect example of how smoothly things don’t run is that one person mentions some ‘event, facts or person’ in passing. Another person will hear the end of that ‘whatever’ it was and ask for it to be repeated. It is repeated and someone else hears the end of it again and they ask what it’s about and it is repeated again.
So, some of us hear it three times!
It’s any wonder I go home with a migraine.
