You’re a whole person and it’s important that you attend to all of you, and not just the illness that caused your admission To help cope with a hospital stay, MD Anderson’s Department of Social Work offers these few tips:
Bring something from your house- a sentimental happy time in ur life picture, stuffed animal, blanket, pillow or anything that brings you comfort. This helps tremendously with creating a warm environment. Most of us feel safe and comfortable at home. Bringing a piece of that with you will re-create those feelings of safety and comfort.
Dress comfortably in your normal clothes from home. When you dress in your regular clothing, it’s a reminder that you’re a regular person, not just a patient in a hospital.
Display pictures of friends and family, or pics your kids drew for you. It has been said that smiling is contagious. Try to fill your walls with smiling faces to brighten your day.
Find a hobby that can be done from your hospital room. Hobbies help keep your mind active and focused on something other than your diagnosis or treatment. For example, if you enjoy creating art, bring a sketchpad and pencils so you can draw while in your hospital bed.if you like blogging use ur phone and make the time constructive!
If possible, bring your laptop from home and use it to skype with friends and family members. Social Media & stay connected and in communication with friends and family, and write about topics u always wanted to but didn’t have the time.
Try to leave your room at least once per day. Whether it’s a short walk, a stroll in the wheel chair or a trip to another part of the hospital, it’s important to change your scenery.

Expressing how you feel and letting others know what you’re going through can help you get through this difficult time.
People say things and make promises they have no intention of keeping on a daily basis. You can tell someone you are there to help him or her as many times as you want, but until your behavior coincides with that, the other person will probably not believe you. Some feelings cannot be expressed in mere words; they require actions to speak for them. Words are cheap, anyone can tell someone they are there for them. but they will not feel the intensity of these emotions until they are acted upon.
