Little Angel Aain explained, “George was telling me how scared he was of being sick. Since he’s had to stay home the past few months he’s missed school and misses seeing his friends. His parents wouldn’t let him go out or have friends in to play because they didn’t know what was wrong. So, he’s been very lonely.”
“What did you tell him about dealing with this kind of a change in his life?” asked the Self-Esteem Angel™.
“I told him that his friends would still be there when he was well again. I told him that having an illness does change a person’s life in many ways. His day-to-day routine will be different and depending on how long he’s sick he might have to make some adjustments in his life,” explained Aain.
“He told me that it was okay to be scared that everyone is scared of not knowing what’s wrong when they get sick,” said George.
“Some people say the waiting and not knowing is sometimes harder to get through than the actual illness. What does it feel like in your body when you are scared?” asked the Angel.
“Sometimes, I feel like my stomach is doing flip flops and sometimes it’s just ‘butterflies,’” said George.
The Self-Esteem Angel™ exclaimed, “Well! I guess we better get those butterflies to fly in formation!” They all laughed as they imagined butterflies flying in a formation like geese do.
The Angel then asked, “Do they know what’s making you sick, yet?”
