The Survey Says…

I was asked by my doctor to participate in a study he is conducting of his patients who have had spinal surgeries and/or who undergo spine-related pain management therapies. What was so surprising about the study was that it was about quality of life and not medical care. I loved being asked to reflect upon my quality of life. And you?

The survey included the following:

We know that the meaning of Quality of Life differs from person to person. People can even change their own thinking on what is important for their quality of life at different points in life. In this questionnaire, we would like to understand your view on your quality of life at this time. By “Quality of Life” we mean how you have been feeling in general and how satisfied you are with how things are going for you in your life, right now (generally, overall).

In a sentence, what does “Quality of Life” mean to you at this time?
In order to have the most satisfying life possible…

• What are the (3) main things you want to accomplish?
• What are the (3) main problems you want to solve?
• What (3) situations do you want to prevent or avoid?
• What (3) things do you want to keep the same as they are now?
• What (3) things do you want to accept as they are?
• What (3) demands and responsibilities do you want to let go of or reduce?

When you answer the questions for yourself, take a moment to celebrate your awareness and then share this awareness with someone else! You’ll be glad you did.

Enjoy the weekend!
