My mum has a number of physical issues. Some of them tie in together. Sometimes it becomes a matter of 'What one thing will serve in multiple ways?' Stress management, for example, helps keep inflammation down to some degree, helps with regulating blood pressure and is good for the immune system and so on. So while she takes multiple meds for a number of conditions, stress management is a natural medicine for helping her maintain physical and mental well being. Sometimes she'll feel the difference through stress management, sometimes she won't, such as with a pinched nerve for example. While she's moved from using a walker 100% of the time to me taking her around in a wheelchair a lot of the time, the wheelchair is also a form of natural pain management. She doesn't get to the end of the day in as much pain as she used to.
Both my son (16) and daughter (19) are sensitive in many ways. As I say to them 'What you do with your sensitivity or ability to sense is up to you. Use this ability wisely'. All 3 of us are pretty good at reading each other, if someone's down or exhausted, excited or stressed etc. I suppose it's about finding it easy to read the ones you love. There's that connection. Usually, we'll talk things out quite easily. Sometimes we'll bottle things up, believing we can manage on our own, before we feel the need to express ourselves verbally. If the need is strong enough, we know we can rely on each other to sort things out, to speak freely. We all lead each other to make better sense of things, especially when certain challenges make no sense at all.
One of the most reliable kinds of people you'll meet are wonderful people, in my opinion. They're full of wonder, to the point where if you give them a problem they'll generally wonder about all possible angles and solutions until they've found the the most relatable solution. They'll offer up what comes to mind, in the hopes of helping us move beyond the challenge/s we face. Myself and my kids are so easily triggered to wonder on most occasions. It's almost like a compulsion :)
It's one thing to be able to sense a person's vibe when they walk in the room, it's another to sense their sufferance, to some degree. Empathy is such a motivating factor when it comes to making a difference to the ones we love, something you speak of yourself. Not wanting someone you love to suffer alone or without hope is one of the greatest motivators.
You're such a beautiful person Shelll, you truly are.
