I'm sure I'm not alone in this. My husband, children (the older two are 10 and 9 yr olds but they do plenty of caregiving!), and my PCA Erica, are the primary CALS in my life and Im comfortable with them. But sometimes if I travel to visit family, or if my husband has to be away for work, I'm left with what I privately think of as a babysitter, but basically a caregiver who is filling in. It's usually a family relation but even so I often feel uncomfortable being cared for by them. This week my grandmother was here and she spoon fed me a little lunch and I felt embarrassed and uncomfortable. When I visited my brothers out of state a few months ago they had to dress me and feed me and they had a female friend come over to shower me. I know beggars cant be choosers but how do others handle discomfort with non-preferred caregivers?
