I am attempting the Wego Health Activist Writers’ Month Challenge. A post each day in April. So, now that I told you I am going to do it, I oughta follow through, right? Today’s prompt is to share something you learned from another Health Activist (Share their name/blog/website!)
I am still a bit worse for wear from my surgery, so I am probably going to keep the rest of the HAWMC posts short, sweet and to the point.
Two shorten the road.
Being sick or in pain is a tremendous load. It can tug at our hearts and hang a cloud over our heads. It can slowly pull us away from loved ones.
A partner can help you navigate. Lead you through the rough patches. If there is something that I have learned from the wisdom of the peoples of the internet it is just that.
Reach out. Ask for help. Do not let yourself end up on an island.
It can be your mom. Your sister. Your best friend. The who doesn’t matter. Just that you let them hold your hand. That you let them in.
It’s a long journey, but when shared with a friend, the time will pass just a little bit easier.
