this is someone who chooses
this is someone who gave me his prescription to get filled while he was with me. we were there. together. in the drugstore.
he is able to speak, walk, see, hear, move. he choose not to hand the prescription to the lady behind the counter and deal with her. he handed it to me
to give to her.
while standing there. talking to me.
yeah, well, it's more than I get. I do all the cleaning and the laundry and the dishes. I haven't gotten breakfast in bed yet.
Again, this is not me complaining and getting all that isn't what I want, need or require.
But when I have a full day of running all over the place (we live remotely and to get to the nearest town is 1/2 hour drive minimum (getting to the hospital where he had to go was 45 minutes one way), having to take care of my own obligations which included house sitting a house 25 minutes from our house and dogs there and at home, taking him into town to get his medications...well, sorry, I can't see asking that he handle that is too much to ask.
I'm not married to him. He's not my brother. He's a cousin that has a work relationship with my mother and lives in the house with us. Has his own car. I'm not unsympathetic to getting diagnosed with a heart problem (not a heart attack, thankfully) and being scared in this time of economic stress and not having insurance. Neither do it I think it's too much trouble for him to fill out his own forms (and not try to hand them off to me to fill out), for him to talk to a receptionist to tell her that he needs to see the doctor (and not look at me to tell her while he's upright, mobile and able to talk) or talk to the pharmacist to get his drug prescription filled (and hand the prescript to me to give to her with him standing right there).
He doesn't know how to fill out the forms? Totally fine. I don't mind helping
He doesn't know how to talk to a doctor? Totally fine. I don't mind being there to help prompt for information.
I don't mind assisting
. I do mind when it's dumped off on me to handle completely
because he doesn't want to
