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?
When I’m unwell, i tend to try to make sure I’m able to do what i can to not trouble others. I do however, at times call up my mum to see if she knows what I can do.
I used to have others take care of me most of the time, because when i do get sick, I have it very bad, but nowadays i tell myself to do the best i can independently. I do however allow others to take care of me, because i think its a sign of gesture, and really helps a lot with the process of recovering not only physically, but also emotionally, knowing that someone is there to help you recover is soothing and helps me calm down and think that everything’s going to be okay.
Certain help like letting my grandma know that I’m sick, so that she don’t have to cook really heavy food, cause she likes to cook, or letting my mum know so that she won’t have to wonder why I’m not answering my calls when I’m supposed to rest.
