Pascal, in one of his pithiest pensees, wrote,
"Respect means putting yourself out." Quite so.

Putting yourself out means:
putting yourself down: means
lifting someone else up.

The chronically ill need respect.
They need you to put yourself out,
to "go the second mile" (Jesus),
to put yourself at their disposal
(even if only for a few moments or hours).

"Respect means putting yourself out. "

Take the burden
to lessen their burden.
Don't flee the burden, but bear it with grace...
for others, for others.
