That is wonderful....just curious though...is this a therapist for CP patients? My Pain Dr. talked to me about seeing the therapist at the Pain Management Office, one that specializes in Chronic Pain... I guess it's because we have a whole different set of issues that we deal with on a daily basis..anyway, right now my insurance doesn't cover it so I have to wait until the beginning of next year...
I hear that it really helps. Not only with the psychological issues but also with the actual pain. Anything that helps the pain is well worth the effort.
So, good luck.
