I told my part-time carer that I'm going to be cancelling her on a Friday today. I rarely do anything and she goes off with 2 hours free and getting paid for it - we agreed a long time ago (when it was an occasional thing) that we'd work it between ourselves - but I'm beginning to feel guilty. I know that my local council is having mega problems in balancing it's budget and although it's only £20 or so it adds up. She was nearly in tears, so I told her that it's so that poliphilo and I can go out more - we probably will - and she perked up at that.
I started having this carer before poliphilo finished work in 1996 and over the years it's become less and less use to me. She should take me swimming and she used to come into the water herself which was fun, but now she just sits at the poolside and waits for me. Then she passes me my clothes dries my back - and although I could do with more help she then goes back to sitting at poolside until I'm ready. And I hate having to ask her to do things - probably stupid but I can't help it.
