Recovering from Injury & Surgery?
Isn’t it all just a bit overwhelming sometimes?
- Getting to and from appointments
- Following doctor’s orders
- Learning new ways to get through your day
- Wondering, will I ever be back to normal?
- Worrying about what comes next
- Feeling like recovery is taking forever
- Getting stuck in the healing process
Usually people recover quickly and life goes on. Other times, however, it takes months or even years of dealing with physical and emotional pain, limitations, doctor appointments, depending on others, and just plain wondering if things will ever be back to normal. Your support system – most often friends and family – are geared up and ready to help (at least for a while), but if the recovery process seems to drag on longer than a few months that support system tends to wear out, break down, or give up.
I want you to know that if you’re facing an upcoming surgery, recovering from an injury or illness, tired of feeling like your life has been on “pause,” or struggling with the emotional leftovers from one or more losses…
you are not alone!
When recovering from an injury, surgery, or both, there may be times when you need a fresh perspective and, perhaps, some extra encouragement along the way. That’s when you need the support of someone who really understands, and maybe a guiding nudge in the right direction. It also helps to have some specific effective wellness strategies.
I’ve been there! I’ve been an injury/surgery patient and have struggled with all the emotions that go along with that. As a coach I work primarily with people who have been sidelined by an unexpected life transition such as an accidental injury, surgery, or acute illness – people who are in the midst of a season of healing and recovery.
Countless hours of researching the psychological effects of injury have shown me that there are many powerful effects on the mind, body, and spirit when a person suffers such a sudden and unwanted life change. I know about this personally because I’ve had several surgeries following a serious injury, and have experienced the emotional and physical effects caused by a complicated healing process.
Through formal education, wellness coach training, and personal study I’ve also learned many techniques, tools, and tips that can make the injury & surgery recovery process much less frustrating, give you the encouragement you need to keep going, and may even improve your sense of well-being in the process. I want to share these gems with you so you can have your best possible recovery experience.
So let me ask you:
- Are you struggling through a difficult or disappointing injury or surgery recovery?
- Do you wonder if you’ll ever be able to do what you used to do?
- Would you like someone to talk to and bounce ideas off while you heal?
- What do you WANT for your life, and how can you get it?
I have dealt with all these questions during my recovery and I’ve found answers that fit my life and situation. Your answers will be different from mine, so I’m not here to give you a bunch of advice. But I can help you discover what it is you really want and need, help you find ways to create and reach your goals, and teach you some tools to improve your overall well-being.
- Are you preparing for surgery and want to heal faster?
- Feeling the emotional pain from a loss of health or favorite activities?
- Ready to get over your old story and get on with your life?
