I got in a severe car crash about 6 weeks ago, during which the drivers side of my Ford F-150 collided with a very larger tree at 70mph. I sustained horrible injuries, including 17 fractures, a lacerated spleen, bleeding in my lungs, a collapsed lung, and several third degree burns.
I am now wheelchair bound, cannot walk even a single step, and need my mom (who's a very busy physician) to help me with lots of things encountered in daily life that I never even needed help with as a small child. My orthopedic surgeon said that lot of my meds, when tested on teenagers such as myself, showed results of severe depression, attempted suicide, etc., so that may be at fault, but ever since I got out of the hospital I'm afraid that my mom is starting to resent me for all of the basic things I need help with. I always say please and thank you and am very polite and verbally appreciative, but I just still feel like she resents the fact that helping me wastes her valuable time.
Does anyone have experience with needing help from others and tips for making them not resent you for your helplessness?
