One thing that's gotta give is educating certain life skills that shouldn’t just pop up when someone goes through treatment. One that comes straight to mind is self-care. I’d never heard of the concept until my mid-twenties, something so simple, that can come from family, teachers, or coaches. I know most people have been told to “take care of yourself”, but putting on a jacket when it’s cold, brushing teeth before bed, or filling up the car with gas are all things people do to ‘take care of themselves’, with absolutely nothing to do with self-care.
