Don’t mistake this for ‘Be Negative’ but having unrealistic expectations can actually end up causing further problems for everyone involved. When you see progression in your loved ones recovery, be positive but don’t get ahead of yourself. Don’t let your own relief inflict a feeling of pressure on to them – stress leads to relapse.

It is equally important to encourage them to keep their expectations of recovery in perspective. As the person begins to feel more able, they can be keen to ‘make up for lost time’ and end up taking on too much, too soon.

Recovery is not a steady road upwards – believing in yourself is important but remember that healing takes time.
