Remember, there are few things we do that can't wait until we are ready to do them. If you are doing something you feel you don't have to, stop doing it. If you feel guilty about not doing it, this is usually your emotional "stomach" growling its hunger. And it doesn't care what you feed it, as long as it's full. Which is to say, it attaches itself to things simply because of the emotional charge received, good or bad. Tell yourself why you aren't doing whatever it is, and don't do it until you can accept that it isn't getting done; until you realize it doesn't bother you anymore. At this point, you will have potentially freed yourself from the emotional attachment and should be able to carry on the activity without feeling emotionally depleted.
It's a bumpy road, but one that can be well worth traveling because the end result is getting back what you never needed to get rid of to begin with.

I think you should feel thankful that you can do these chores,try being in a horrible accident and being limited to menial tasks,you'll long for the time you could perform all these tasks and still be able to do what you want,besides like one said it's a matter of dignity,yes some live in squalor if you does these tasks then neither do you,so try looking at them as an exercise in personal dignity
