The reality of being in this thing together

One challenge the Dual Gs (gimpy and grumpy) face as a couple is the trajectory of their current impairments. The reality of the moment is that each day the female DG can do a little more. The male DG, on the other hand, faces increasing frustration at any task that requires both a left and a right side. There is a idealistic image of “all for one and one for all” and each of them tenderly coming to the others rescue. But the reality is that’s not the case. Instead, it’s just friction.
