Caught in Sexy Time

One of my commentators reminded me of something yesterday.
It was that somewhat  strange moment that you catch someone unexpected having sex.

Some years ago now a psychotherapy colleague and I went to visit a spinal patient in his home in Nottinghamshire. The patient had experienced many problems post injury which included the loss of his job, home and marriage yet after a somewhat robust struggle had been set up in his own bungalow with a care package in place which included a daily team of carers and all of the latest gadgets available .
The patient had been a fairly high up clergyman before his accident and although he was sweet he could be incredibly pious at times.
Now one of the problems this guy had was a repetitive and often dangerous rise in his blood pressure. This needed Judicious use of a low release medication which was administered as a daily GTN patch to his inner thigh.
Anyhow, the physio and I drove down from Sheffield for a visit and after we rang his doorbell we were surprised there was no answer.
We waited and waited at the front door for an absolute age, and eventually a busty breathless twenty something carer came to the door with her hair all over the place
" Sorry I didn't hear the doorbell I was just giving {name} a wash " she gushed, showing us both into the living room and she missed the slightly amused look on both of our faces before she raced to get the patient from out of the bedroom.
She had no clue that there was a GTN patch stuck to the side of her face.......

Just a quick thank you to Blog reader Libby who turned up this morning for coffee and cake.
It was lovely to see you, and thank you for the gifts....too kind!
Hey ho

  14. So that is what a carer does! I had often wondered and now I wonder if I am entitled to the services of a carer. Three visits a week would be most acceptable.

  23. I worked in a Rehab Hospital when I was very young .. the men stand out in my mind as some of the most brave and full of life people that I have ever met. Being fed by a teenager, wearing "diapers" and being wheeled around whenever you had to go anywhere .. And they would lie in their beds and make jokes and crack each other up. I would walk down the hall and hear them laughing .. snorting and giggling like kids.
    I only remember doing this once but my friend and I had to take a couple of patients to the big hospital across the street. There were underground tunnels for wheeling chairs or stretchers from the hospital to the rehab.
    Our patients would race .. we had to stand behind the chairs and let them count down then run , pushing the wheelchair as fast as we could. They would laugh their heads off .. giggling like boys ..
    I don't care what anyone thinks or though about what I / we did .. to see those men laughing like that was worth anything ..

    It just seems to me that when a blogger makes me laugh out loud, leaving a comment is the least I can do in return. -Kate

  31. Very funny!! Coming out of my apartment one day, I could hear strangulated moans coming from my widowed neighbour's apartment. I nearly broke the door down with my rapping and calling out to her, thinking she was having a seizure or heart attack. The noise stopped and after a while the front door opened a chink and my very healthy-looking septuagenerian neighbour's eye peeked out. Yes, she had a Gentleman Caller.

  35. I prep patients for CT scans. Not long ago I had a patient who had sweatpants on and the end of the ties were dangling between his legs. I was trying to decide if they were metal or not, so I was staring at his crotch. I looked up to find him looking at me and I said, I wasn't looking at your crotch, I was looking at your dangly bits. My girlfriend was just outside the IV room and I thought she was going to have an aneurysm.

  36. a few years ago we had a foreign careworker locally that managed to create a bit of a stir , she was supplementing her pay by providing extra services to some of her gentleman clients , much local disgust and hooha, deport her , put her in the stocks etc etc. .
    i was of a more pragmatic view, she was a very good reliable carer and her clients were very happy men in fact she had a waiting list of gentlemen . after all even the disabled have needs , people do tend to forget that

  37. It looks like the spinal patient was a very happy bunny on that occasion!
