This caring lark is a breeding ground for guilt.
I promised about 2 months ago to write and present the village pub quiz. I have done the writing and now need to go out and do it; but OH really does not want me to go - he just feels safer when I am here as he gets very anxious.
I am sticking to my guns and going but boy do I feel guilty! My DD is going to ring him to remind him about his meds and come over if he is too anxious, soI know there is back-up, but that just makes me feel guilty that her life is disrupted by his illness. I see it as my responsibility, even though all the girls kindly say they see it as a shared responsibility.
I knew the day would come when leaving him on his own would become really problematical, and it looks as though we are here. But getting a paid carer in is not the answer as it is me he wants to be here.
It is hard for him and hard for me.
