If you are ill or injured and will be laid up for a while, you will have to get used to being looked after by both your doctor and your friends and family. If you have a fairly active life, and are used to being independent, then this can be a bit of a blow, and it can be frustrating not being able to do things for yourself. However, in this time you will just have to cope with the situation, and try to be a good patient so as not to irritate your loved ones or doctor.
- Write down anything the doctor tells you. So that you don’t forget what you have been told, write down everything the doctor tells you that you need to do to recover best. If you ignore or forget any advice from the doctor then you may be making your recovery process much longer.
- Follow all instructions. Your doctor will tell you everything you need to do to make a full recovery, and you should follow this advice to the letter. If you are prescribed medication, take the whole course and at the times specified. If you have been asked to clean a wound regularly then do so, even if it hurts.
- Let others make decisions. Be able to let go of certain situations and let others make your decisions for you for a short time. It is only until you are feeling better, and if you try to overrule people whilst you cannot do anything for yourself you will just cause arguments.
- Relax. It is most important that you recover from your illness or injuries and so you should be resting and not stressing over anything that you cannot control. Use this time to get as much rest and relaxation as you can.
