Caregiving: reflecting on ...

     Reflecting on my periodic entry about Patti’s “level of disability & ability”, I can’t help but find it curious over these decades that while science tries to measure the impact of a chronic illness or injury, on the other hand we do not try to evaluate the potential of those without physical or mental challenges.

     I’m reminded of a line from the movie, “A Knight’s Tale”; “You’ve been measured. You’ve been weighed. And you’ve been found wanting.”  What a mess if standards were applied to the ‘activities of daily living’ of the able bodied?

  1. we would all be in trouble because I think all of us in some way are different and unique. Imagine trying to evaluate us all onto a scale. Mind boggling to say the least
