Support Network’s Octoberfest of Encouragement and Friendship
Did you know that the Support Network & MyAFibExperience have about 25 conversation forums for survivors and caregivers of heart and stroke conditions?
As I read through all the comments each day, I see similarities in all the conversations.
- Anxiety – for the future
- Anger – at the experience
- Grief- for what has been lost
- Joy -for a positive future or health event anniversary.
Since this year has provided such upheaval and change, I am going to ask each of you to step outside of your comfort zone, go to a different condition area, say hello, post a response to a new person, and see what comfort and support you can provide to a stranger.
Let us bring the entire community together for a month of support. Your post can include appropriate photos, your favorite quote, words wisdom, or inspiration.
You might find how much better you feel for doing this. I can tell you that there are many mornings when I sit down to check the site, that I am discouraged or stressed (see my charcoal self-portrait from a few years ago).
By the time I am done reading, looking for resources, and responding with words of hope and encouragement, I always feel better.
I hope that you find the same to be true during the Support Network’s Octoberfest of Encouragement and Friendship.
