Your case is not like your neighbor’s case. And so what you think might be important about your case because of what you’ve heard from your neighbors is not necessarily the case. So understand that every case is different. Cases take time. If you are in a hurry to finish the case, that’s not always in your best interest. And sometimes patience can be a virtue.

I think it’s also important to follow your doctor’s advice. If you’ve been injured and you’re being given recommendations by your doctor, it’s important to listen to your doctor, to make sure you make those appointments, and to follow the advice, to do the best you can to get yourself as well as you’re going to be.

It’s important to take notes and keep track of things that are happening to you. You may remember them now, but they’ll be important to you later, and it’s important to be able to have some recollection of what you’re gone through throughout your recovery.
