Head therapy (like it!)

I hope that the head stuff works for you….it takes abit of courage to admit that we need help with this stuff, particularly after the “acute” bit is over. People expect that we will just get on with recovering, no worries.

It is funny how we forget that our bodies are not individual bits and pieces, that we are one holistic system. Our mind controls such a huge amount of stuff.

I got to a point a couple of years ago where I could not cope with the pain and the disability and the effects of CIDP on my life. I was dealing every day with anxiety that was disabling in itself. I had been going off and on to see a therapist that dealt with people with terminal and chronic disease. She was great, but I finally admitted to myself that I needed more help.

So – all I can say is go for it. Don’t feel guilty or bad for needing it. It is probably one of the best things you can do for yourself.

PS – We need to vent just like everybody else! Hold a “Pity Party” from time to time, just make sure you are the only invited guest and everyone else is not around!

Cheers – and we are all here for you – we do understand and support you.
