I am my husband's carer and fortunately am usually in good health. However I now have a rotten cold and am trying to make things easier for myself. I am using meals in the freezer that I cooked previously and conveniently had my groceries delivered today. I decided to have a rest on my bed,but my husband has been in and out like a yo-yo, asking umpteen times if I want a cup of tea,or just to tell me what he can see out of the window,or what he's watching on TV.!! All I wanted was to be left in peace for an hour or so. I decided to accept the cup of tea--it was easier! I know I will be better in a day or so,but I worry now about how we would manage if I was really ill. Let's hope that doesn't happen for both our sakes. It's so important we don't neglect our own health --I'll be first in the queue for my flu jab next week.Good health to you all.
