Honestly evaluate the way you respond to crisis situations. Are you happy with the way you react?
Whenever there is a crisis situation in the family I try to find the best possible way of dealing with it. I’ve had these situations more than I care to count, each one was different and the solution of course had to be according to the seriousness of the situation.
My husband was not very calm, he’d get extremely anxious, which was not always good for him, considering he was a heart patient.
Once one of my daughters was crossing the street in the evening, a motorist hit her, he claimed he did not see her, her left shoulder was hurt. As soon as my husband heard it he immediately had angina pain. I explained to him he must stay home, I’ll take the daughter to emergency. He stayed back, we went to the emergency waited for hours before anyone came out.
Sometimes I feel the word ‘EMERGENCY’ is a farce, you go to the hospital no one seems to take you seriously, they take their time, they are happy to let the patients wait, because they have a sign up which says, “minimum time to wait is at least six hours”.
