I'm re-reading (and re-sending) these quotes for a little inspiration. Do you identify with any of these or have your own words of wisdom? - Henry
From patients/peers across Canada:
Yes it takes its toll but I don’t let it bother me anymore nothing I can do about it just live life and enjoy my new grand-daughter on the way ... so busy helping new mom to beWhen I go to the hospital with [my son], I try to make it like a "journée privilège". We bring a lunch and make a picnic with some food that he likes. I take time with him and we play together with special toys that we never [usually] play or we read new books... Yes I try to make a special day... He feels lucky to be alone with mom
Well we live 2.5 hours away from her doctors so if her [daughter’s] appointments are in the morning we usually stay at a hotel with a pool and find other fun stuff to do...
Honestly tests don't bother me that much! I'm only really sensitive about my eye appointments… I usually go to all of my tests alone but family comes with me for results. Family is a huge thing with me for dealing with stress… Talking about any worries with them relieves my stress for sure. Maybe it ls just sharing some of my struggles takes the wake off. I also talk to my dogs haha it weird but you know they will always listen! I also love the gym…
