Training Day

I had another training day with Maddie.  Today she did 75% of the hands on stuff; Simone did the rest.

Later on today, I had a new osteopath person to come and give me a treatment.  Since she had never given me a treatment at home before, I had to also train her.   I had to show her how I lay with my back with three pillows under me and explain that when I say "yes" without my communication board I raise my right hand.

It seems like all my life I've been training people.  Pretty much right from the start, I had to train my parents and my brother.  Later on I had to do the same with friends and camp counselors, and doctors and nurses, and then, unfortunately, attendants.

Today I was thinking that I wish I could just insert a computer chip in everyone so that they knew how to interact with me.

Luckily, my favorite attendant is an android ....
