I ended up sleeping away most of the 24 hours after my home visit. Partly because it really was exhausting; partly because I seem to have come down with a cold or some sort of weird off-season hay-fever. I have, at any rate, not had a lot of energy today.
I don't anticipate anything coming up that would cause me to
challenge the he plan to send me home on 24 Feb (Weds.). And
I am sufficiently low on mental energy that I've decided to preserve
cycles by a method that feels utterly foreign to me but nonetheless
like the best plan under the circumstances: I have no contingency
plan, nor will I be making one.
This rest of this post is largely for my own reference — an attempt to list all the things I expect to need to ask someone to help me out with over the next few weeks, til I'm able to be independent again. I will make some effort not to be so terse as to be only comprehensible to myself — that is, to express these in such a way that it will be at least conceivable for someone to say "Hey, I can take care of that one for you." But for the most part, I expect this to be a list of topics about which I'll be writing individual posts in the near future, each on the theme Hey, would someone like to help me out with foo?
