i have been living independently for 2 years now with some help from sweep,
sweep is my friend and she helps me out and me her, sometimes i cant do the shopping and she will get food for me, and she helps me to drive as i am on her insurance and use her car as a learner, we go out a lot and try and stay busy,
the bins are a pain but i like to seperate the recyclables and put them in the proper bins to be collected like i have four bins lol, i hate doing dishes and i know when i am letting things slide when i leave them to mount up and i end up with like no room on my counters for anything and nothing to eat with etc.
i try and shower and brush my teeth and shave but i usually put it off until i really need to which is a bit stupid as i end up scruffy and a bit smelly, i do always change my clothes every night tho and i try to keep on top of the washing but sweep helps me with that sometimes,
its much easier when you have someone to help you with your weaknesses, i am strong in other areas but its the same with sweep hopefully will get better with time tho
shops are nearby and i like to go for tea or a sandwich/roll at lunch time in the cafe, i am in a good area so i have been very lucky.
does anyone want to live independently or have to or do you think you could cope? what sort of things would you struggle with?
i guess its easier for me because i am stable and not planning on going back to hospital anytime soon lol
