Living Alone Frustrations

After living with my ex for a year and a half, living alone again definitely does feel strange and I can't decide how I feel about it. 

I've lived alone before and I do love it - I can do whatever I want, whenever I want and there's no compromise, but from a disability point of view, it's made me realise how much I rely on other people to do jobs around the house for me and this gets a bit frustrating. 

I'm lucky that I have a very, very supportive family who will come over and help me with any jobs that I need doing, but I hate that they have to take time out of their own days to come and hoover for me or take the bins out and I just wish that I could do it myself sometimes. I'm thankful I'm able to live alone, I'm thankful that I can do things for myself, don't get me wrong, but sometimes it's just very annoying. 

I know that in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter if i hoover or if my mum does it, but I just needed to rant it out a bit and hopefully find out if it's just me who feels like this. Do any other spoonies feel like this?
