This week my fiancee, Rita, started going to Physical Therapy for a few minor aches and pains that have been bothering her for a while. I've been interested in body mechanics and muscular movement for a while and have been giving serious thought about going back to school to become a physical therapist; so I went with her. I wanted to see what she was prescribed to do, see what other people were doing, and I wanted to be able to support her.
I've have had fairly decent support throughout my life. There were a few things that I wish I had had more support in, but there have also been things that I've had overwhelming amounts of support in doing. Giving someone a little support, whether it's needed or not, is a great way to let them know you care. Even if you don't approve of the decision being made, having a solid, logical explanation of where you are coming from will go a long way and still achieve the same goal...letting them know you care.
Having a cheering section-even if it's only one person-can make a huge difference in how a person feels...physically, mentally and emotionally.
