Support

As I am laying in bed waiting for my pain medicine to kick in, thoughts began to flood my mind. As spoonies dealing with pain and illness it can be hard for our family and friends to understand how they can help us.

When talking with caregivers, family and friends, they all expressed how hard it is to watch someone they love go through sickness and they feel helpless.

I am here to tell all who are reading this that your presence and support makes everything better. You may not be able to physically take the pain away, but you staying up with us, watching tv or just laying in silence with us, embracing us, showing us with actions, body language, attentiveness in those bad moments make a world of difference.

I encourage you today to continue to be mentally, physically and emotionally present in your loved one’s life as they fight the disease and support them!!! Then watch how their will to fight goes into hyperdrive and they get through!!! You are helping!!!!
