today

So Dan is due back today, after being away for 5 days.  I haven't called him in this period to tell him what a disaster I've been.  He's been hanging out with his family, visiting friends, and getting some stuff done.  I know that if I had called him he would feel guilty about leaving me alone.  I think that he needs a break every once in a while from taking care of me.
But the truth is, for the past 5 days, I've forgotten medical appointments, forgotten to eat, forgotten to shower.  Without someone here to give me clues, I really struggle.
It's a very scary thought that 10 months after my accident, I still really can't cope on my own.  I need a lot of help with day to day tasks, even with remembering things.
Sigh.

{{Hugs}} I am so glad Dan is there to help you. I know how hard it is to balance needing someone so much with letting them have some time to recover.
