Well, I went to my aunt's today. I went to work, went to my own therapy appointment, and then picked her up from a medical appointment and took her home. I felt good and contaminated when I got there, and she had me get her mail, use her keys, go get a few groceries, and adjust her oxygen supplies. It should have been overwhelming, but mostly it all just needed to be done. And so I did it. I felt pretty okay.
Then I came home and brought in the garbage cans in the rain. I need a drink! Just kidding. I'm feeling okay, and making myself try to stay in the present rather than getting anxious about future visits.
