Helping Your Family And Friends Help You
If you’ve been diagnosed with vascular disease, it can be difficult to process. The emotional strain and stress that such a diagnosis has in addition to the physical issues you’re experiencing can be tremendous. During this time, you will need a strong support system to help you as you navigate the treatment plan and emotional strain you’re experiencing. It’s important that you allow your support system of family and friends to help you.
There are ways you can help others so they can help you most effectively during this time.
- Accept their help. Help others help you by being open to their gestures of help. This is not a time to stubbornly think you can do it all on your own. Allow others the joy of serving and loving you during this time. Many times, people want to bring a meal so they feel they are doing something to help, allow them to serve you in this practical way.
- Communicate with those helping you and stay well connected. This time has the ability to draw you closer to those you love because you all can realize how important you are to each other. Open and honest conversations about how each person feels are important and help reduce stress.
- Allow others to attend your appointments with you. Often times, the emotional strain of your physical issues can cause you to miss important details during a doctor appointment. Bringing someone else to your appointment can help so there are more ears to hear, and important questions can be asked, answered, understood, documented and remembered.
