Cooking and preparing food descriptor - how can I prove it?
Can I ask advice about question of cooking
my partner was scored 2 saying prompting was needed when I said can’t cook at all.
My partner has full use of her legs and arms but physically can not cook because the kitchen is a distressing place.
Smells, noise, heat, multi things on the go.
My partner will not come out of the bedroom at all, I have to illuminate food smells as equivalent as possible to, I even have to wash the dishes as quiet as possible.
Sometimes I just don’t even cook as I need a rest mentally myself so eat a takeaway and just battle getting the smell out.
You know my partner has never even opened the fridge door in the 24 years we have been together … Honestly never even switched the kettle on.
Doesn’t ask for food
Also if the food doesn’t look right it will be turned away,
will not and never has eaten veg, fruit, dairy,
even the colour of bread has to be perfect
only lives off water and has to be bottled
if I change the brand she tastes it and won’t drink it
I even have to make sure water is there in a glass near her as she has no desire to think “ I’m thirsty “
So on the cooking where do you think she should be scoring as I’m sure it must be more than 2 points just on this alone???
