Life can be messy. Sometimes you need a little support to make your way through it. I love to help guide people through their challenges & to find the beauty in our messes.

Emotionally, you can surround yourself with great friends and family. They can be your support network. Physically, focus on healing. Try meditating. Not only will it take your mind off your physical pain, it can also help you with your emotional pain.

How I can take better care of my injuries, is to be completly aware of how bad the injury is, regardless of the emotional state that I am in. As I know from past experience, leaving an injury never ends well, as it can get worse. But by taking immediate action, the injury will get better faster.

Learn basic first aid to treat your injuries and keep a supply of clean dressings etc if you can. When they have started to heal encourage that healing and forgive yourself by applying creams and massaging any scars, you deserve to heal just as you deserve to feel better.

You can go to the doctor or hospital depending on how severe they are, or you can use antibacterial cream and bandages or ice packs depending on what it is

Any injury should be cleaned with warm water with a clean cloth/ flannel. After, an antiseptic should be applied, followed by a plaster. The plasters should be changed every day, and changes should include washing and then putting on the antiseptic again. Bigger injuries may need medical attention.
