It helps to offload sometimes, to know that there are others in the same boat. You are not the only one who is suffering supporting your loved one. Just talking about it may help. I'd like to post today about tunes that go round and round in your head, tunes that bring back certain memories, tunes that affect other people in your lives. One tune stands out for me and that is -
I knew this tune and the words to the chorus before it was practised by my OH. I liked the bit where you had to whistle but after a few weeks I got a little fed up with whistling and listening to the tune. So did our neighbour, who still talks about it 30+ years on.
These are the words I know and they are probably not accurate.
Whistle a song like Whistling Rufus,
Doo, doo, doody, doo day (This is the whistling bit.)
Whistle along like Whistling Rufus,
Doo, doo, doody, doo day (Another whistling bit.)
When things go wrong think of old man Rufus
He's always happy and gay.
He whistles - doo doo
Doo di doo doo doody doody (whistle-y bit)
Whistles his worries away.
There are other tunes but this is the one which stands out for me.
