Wind out of sails

My beloved took the wind out of mine today. I've spent years trying to find an aerobic exercise I can do safely and I've picked the brains of several physios in vain. Finally I cracked it and I've been slowly and gradually increasing my number of step-ups. Today, when I'd finished, I proudly announced “260”. His reply? “You're blowing a bit.” Yup, that's the idea, my love.

Plus, I had difficulty hooking my large disabled-key-holder onto the key hoooks so he kindly put a large one at the side just for me. It's so useful and handy that he now uses it for all his keys :roll:

So what does your nearest and dearest do and say to make your arthritic life that little bit harder?

    I haven't got an OH, it doesn't bother me a bit it just means I can please myself what I do and where I go, when I was married he would always find a criticism in anything I did, never any help or praise.

    Wears his boots in the house, tracking in muck and dirt. Socks and wood shavings (because of his work) everywhere! Absolutely doesn't bother picking up after himself :roll: ! I nag about the boots but everything else I just live with because he is so loyal and devoted.... :D

    Me - Oooof! Stuff's hurting.

    Him - What? Still?

    We are having an on-going debate about various aspects of getting house market-ready. I am prepared to call in help from all over the shop, he is adamant we will do it ourselves. I am used to asking for help (and frequently do) but he is still able to be Mr Independent. Hmph. DD

    No dearest and nearest here. Apart from the cat, aka "lily in the field". So I'm totally unbothered by any misbehaviour of a dearest. And of any help from one.

    Stupid? No, tkachev, I think it's insensitive and unkind. A () for you from me. DD

    He screws bottles and jars as tight as he can despite several requests/shouts from me about him maybe considering not to be so brutal. He also keeps booby-trapping my bath with the baby bath and his bottles of shower things so I can't get in easily. Other than that he's usually quite good and helpful.
