How to deal with always needing to ask for help?

I have a chronic illness and my partner is also my carer. I find it increasingly difficult to ask for things. I am asking less and less if it's not absolutely necessary. He's tired too, and has an illness himself. He stopped working because my care and his work was too much together. (He hated his job too, so his choice) He took my fooltime care and gets paid by me for it. He feels bad about that too. So... how do we cope. What do we work on? I just don't know what to do. I feel SO bad, asking for things. He's been caring for me since 2008 and there's no lack of love. 

Update:

* full time care. lol
