Share your bad days
It is important to let people know if you are having a bad day, even if you don’t know why and can’t think of a way to make it better. That is what friends and family are there to support with. I know that during my treatment that my family felt a little helpless as the doctors and nurses took charge of making me feel better. So, telling them you are feeling a bit rubbish means that they have a job to do which doesn’t involve giving you medicine. Believe me, they will be happier for knowing.
