Don’t Let a Chronic Wound Stop You From Living Your Best Life

Living with a chronic wound is not fun. Besides the physical pain and discomfort, it presents challenges and hurdles that make everyday life just a bit more difficult. An impacted quality of life has all of the mental, emotional, and psychosocial implications that come along with it. 

The route to healing can be confusing and overwhelming. When it comes to protecting your quality of life and mental health, here’s a few important things to keep in mind:

  1. Communication is key. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind. Ask your doctors and healthcare providers to clarify anything that you’re unsure about and be willing to share your thoughts and concerns. If you have a question, they should be prepared to answer it- or at least point you in the right direction. Open dialogue is the first step in building a solid foundation between patient and provider.
  2. Take care of yourself. Not just “medically” but in a way that makes you feel good and happy. Nourish your body with wholesome foods, schedule a time to stop at the spa, carve time out of your day for meditation, or even just get outdoors for a breath of fresh air. Wherever you’re holding in your health journey, there is something- no matter how small- that you can do to make yourself feel just a little bit better. Feeling better means feeling optimistic; and being optimistic can make all the difference in the world.
  3. Lean on your network. The expression “no man is an island” applies to you, too. Whether it is your family, friends, fellow patients, or healthcare team, don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for support. It is perfectly okay to need a boost when you’re down or someone to cheer alongside you when you’re in the good times. Remember, you are never alone.
  4. Make sure you are utilizing your resources and maximizing the care that is available to you. Stay up-to-date on what’s out there and double check that the method you are using is perfect for you. 


The right treatment plan will help restore independence, improve quality of life, and empower you to take control of your own health. A Wound VAC can be an excellent option, offering a non-invasive, effective, and patient-friendly approach to healing. One significant advantage is its ability to promote faster healing, reducing the time spent dealing with chronic wounds and minimizing the risk of complications. This means less time in the hospital and more time enjoying life to the fullest, as you should be.
