|Melanie Reid (Source: The Times)|
This week she was talking about things she can no longer do and said this which struck such a chord with me:
"Action woman can't plan action when she no longer exists, except in her memories."
Last week she talked about the (lack of) off-buttons. "no, this isn't believable. This is too much - it's just too far fetched, and you reach out to hit the off button on the TV remote. Except you can't; because what's happening is for real. . . . The terrible but where you shake your head and change TV channel. Except we can't."
Another feeling I am quite familiar with, put into words in such an accurate and honest way!
I am so sorry for all that Melanie endures, but so grateful that she has the courage to verbalise these sentiments in a national paper for us all to share, because we do all share the sentiments, don't we?!
