Some days feel like they have hold of your ankles and won’t let you go anywhere or do anything. We all know them well. They are tough. Whether you're living with cancer, crohn’s, colitis, kidney disease or any other chronic illness they are days when you need a bit of help - or a lot of help some days. Some light and warmth beneath you to launch you through your day, whether it’s a day of recovery in front of a box set, a short walk in the fresh air, or getting through a day at work. Having a friend or loved one’s support can make a big difference, or just knowing where to go to find purchases that will make life easier. We can though too often be reluctant to ask, or friends to offer. Usually because neither side knows how. We’ve put together some pages of resources that we have found really help as both patients and carers in four different ways - help keeping in touch with our network (it can feel like friends and family don’t understand the many challenges you face, but keeping them informed really helps); getting help with food - for yourself or your family, to keep you nourished and give you the energy to be you; balancing the many jobs that we all have to juggle and sometimes need some help with (REALLY don’t feel bad about asking, most people so want to help, they just need telling how); and some clothes that can really help for post-surgery days, ostomy wear, chemo sessions and more. We would though love to add to these with your ideas - things that have helped you. Please take a look at the link on our page today, see if there are resources that can help you, and let us know if there are more you think we should add.
