I had two worries. One, that Dianne would be so weak that the two of us would be unable to handle things here without too much unwanted assistence, putting "needs" and "wants" in a whole different perspective. She is stronger than i expected and i now envision her getting stronger.
I also worried that the regimine required to keep her in the best possible health would be both difficult for me and resisted by her. This has gotten us into trouble before, including, i think, this last time.
The dual role of companion and uncertified Nursing Assistant might be too much for my autistic brain to handle. Practice seems at least a little bit better than theory in this case.
