Sickness has a way of draining our physical and mental energy. Some illnesses also put a strain on our finances. Even if you manage to recover from the disease, it may take some time before you can get back up on your feet.
But perhaps the most challenging part of any illness is the sense of isolation that patients usually grapple with while receiving medical attention. That’s especially true for patients receiving specialized treatment or those in palliative care centers.
Numerous studies have shown that social support plays a significant role in speeding up recovery from various illnesses. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to hang around a sick relative or friend all the time. If you happen to live in a different state or country from where the ailing person is, you may never find the time to pay them a physical visit in the first place. That’s where a ‘get well soon’ card comes in.
A ‘get well soon’ card allows you to convey your goodwill messages to a sick relative or friend and possibly speed up the recovery process. Even if the patient has slim chances of recovering, sending them a ‘get well soon’ card may help to prolong their existence.
But while a ‘get well soon’ card is a remarkable gesture, what really matters is the actual message in the card.
At the very least, a ‘get well soon’ card should contain messages of hope and optimism. The wishes should be able to uplift the patient’s moods and help them see the brighter side even if they’re suffering from a terminal illness.
Here’s a collection of 80 most uplifting wishes to write in a ‘get well soon’ card.
