When you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?
I usually tough it out on my own. I don’t want to bother friends who offer to help me. I usually can make it through any situation except when my sciatic nerve in my back caused me great distress earlier this year. I asked for help on several occasions.
For me to accept or ask for help there has to be no way for me to accomplish necessary things like walk or go the the bathroom-really necessary things.

I rarely like asking for help. 😛
I’m now realizing I need to get over myself and receive help when it’s offered. If I don’t, one day I might need help in the worse way and no one offered because I kept pretending I didn’t need help. Maybe you need to rethink receiving help also. Blessings.
Same here. It takes a lot of courage.
This year, 2016, I decided to ask for help when it is needful and stop trying to act like I’m super woman. It’s a new day. Blessings.
I usually go it alone. I think many mums are in the same position and put themselves at the bottom of the caring list, taking care of others first and then battling on alone. Most of the time anyway …
You are so right. I’ve always put myself last until I had my humbling experiences this year. From now on I’ll be putting my friends to the test if I need help. Remember move yourself up the ladder of importance. Blessings.
Thanks for your kind words. And you’re right, sometimes we do need to ask for help. I’ll work on that!
