Towards the end of my session with my case manager yesterday she said some of the services were that they’d come and cook and clean for me. I like certain foods and won’t eat much other than a dozen foods; what if it’s cooking something I don’t like. And I think I could figure out eating if I had to, others would need the services more than me. My parents have people who come and clean the house now and I don’t like that they mess with my stuff, it may look messy to others but I know where everything is. I may be strange and there are somethings I’d like help with but I don’t think it’d be on my terms. Like my balance. Being able to shower or hygiene stuff. Social skills. Risk taking. Job skills. Being able to talk on the phone. I don’t want to be enabled I want people to help me to learn to do some of these things.
