When you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us HELP.
I think it depends on what I have. This year, I had panic disorder, dyspepsia, and muscle strain. I still actually have the last two because I did not take any meds prescribed by different doctors in my numerous visits. Now, that my belching is causing more pain and discomfort, not to mention the embarrassment of burping or farting anywhere, I sought medical help. For two days, I have been faithfully taking my meds. Praise the Lord! Not a hospital visit that I went alone. Thank God for friends. They only go to the hospital with me. I don’t expect them to take care of me when I’m home. It’s no biggie anyway,
However, whenever I have flu, I like being taken care of. I am so used to my family’s pampering when I was little. They’d make me soup, buy me anything I want, pray with me, and tell me stories. Oh, and it was my only chance to play and not do homework.:) Now, that I am still older, I still look for that care. Sadly, no one is available to make soup or lemonade for me, massage my head, and cover me when I’m cold. But thanks be to God for helping me soldier on.:)
