True caring should involve not just the transactional handing over of a prescription, but it should also engage the person inside the patient by looking within them to intuitively discern what must be done.
I have discovered that you can learn lot about people by observing them when they are discussing their health. For example in my office I often see patients going over their long list of medications with an expression of “quiet desperation” on their faces.
Their postures and gestures say that they have resigned themselves to the fact that there isn’t another option except that of being on the endless road of receiving care.
I frequently wonder if some of those patients just want to be cared for and following their physician’s orders by taking their medications gives them a level of comfort that someone cares about them.
If you are in this state of pure “quiet desperation” I suggest that you stop being silent about your situation.
This is due to the fact that “quiet desperation” is often a part of a vicious cycle because if you remain quiet and do not confront your fears, the fears trap you, take over and win.
It is however a lot harder to confront your fears than to accept them, but it is more rewarding.
Shake up your inside and shout to your subconscious saying, “I’ve had enough!”
Combine this with affirming yourself by saying, “I can find the answers to my problems!”, “I believe in myself” and “I know I will find the authentic answers I need!”
