Where do you go when life takes big turns?2290

"Life" throws curves, takes big turns ... creeps up on you and surprises the dickens (that's my strongest swear word) out of you.

What's your anchor?

Where/who do you turn to when LIFE becomes challenging?

What or who is your rock?

I have a young (39) friend ... routine check up.

"You are going to die if we don't take care of this."

Hospital visit ... surgery, serious complications (even at Stanford) ... facing amputation of the lower part of one of his legs.

Life takes turns.

Where do you turn to when there are turns?

My spouse and I are a pretty tough team. We evaluate, face the worst and then come up with a plan. However, I am not ashamed to call on friends for emotional support or a qualified therapist to help me work through things. In fact, I recommend that your friend take advantage of any social services available. The hospital patient support team or an individual therapist can provide valuable insight.

@TParker

I envy that relationship with your spouse. We are more often than not at odds over a plan... which probably or maybe lends itself to a better course of action in the end. But it is tough going to get going.

Does that make us a tough team, too?

Writing, painting, journaling and even gardening can distract me long enough to help me get through tough times.

Tougher times - prayer and meditation

Having a supportive partner is a wonderful thing. @TParker You are very lucky.
