Seeing for the First Time
Seeing your injured parent for the first time can cause a lot of different feelings. Not knowing what to expect when you see your injured parent can make you feel anxious or scared. It's helpful to talk to your parent prior to seeing your injured parent and ask any questions you might have. Here are a few questions you might consider asking:
- What will my dad look like?
- Does my mother look really different from before?
- What should I say to him?
- Will I be able to hug her?
Be aware of how you are feeling and thinking. It can be helpful to share your feelings and thoughts with someone you trust.
