It's National Bah Humbug Day, this time of year causes a lot of holiday stress. On top of not feeling well, how are you dealing with holiday stress? Do you have good tactics for dealing with the additional stress? Are you ready for the upcoming holidays?
It's National Tolerance Week. There are many things that can be included in tolerance week. Today lets talk about the health care environment. How much tolerance do you think health care workers have or should have with those with chronic illness?
I keep lists too, having little children there is so much going on every single day during the holiday season. Sometimes it's unbearable. I just have to deal the best I can. I find at the end of the holiday season I am 100% exhausted. I can't get into shopping online, I like to see and feel the things I am purchasing. One day maybe I'll get use to shopping online.View Thread
The holiday season is pressing down on all of us. On top of that the holiday shopping has begun as well. I've seen in years past where those with chronic illnesses struggle a lot worse then others during this time of year. How do you prepare yourself to deal with the onslaught of holiday stress? How do you manage to keep your daily stress down?View Thread
It's manic in my house this morning, although most Monday's if feels manic. We had a very busy weekend, with family and today is my partner's birthday. His parents live on the West Coast so we were awakened at midnight our time last night with a phone call. It was very sweet but certainly made my morning a bit more exhausting! How was your weekend? What are your plans for the week?
While we talk about our week, this is National Kindness Week. It got me thinking about the health care environment and how important it is to me to have a kind and caring doctor. As well as an educated one. How important is it to you to have a kind doctor? When is the last time you honestly felt a healthcare worker really did honestly care about you and showed you kindness? Do you think this is a regular thing or do you think that some healthcare workers have it and others don't?View Thread
