I believe that members on Spine-Health understand the physical impacts that spinal problems create.
This site has be used as a type of Support group helping members in overcoming certain obstacles. We
can understand the physical impacts, but what do we do about the emotional impacts?
Seeing a psychologist or other professional counselors can be the answer, however, you may feel by doing so you are not a stable person.
That is not true. Psychologist/Counselors can provide us with 'tools' to help us through difficult times.
We dont have problems seeing a medical doctor to help with our pain and discomfort, so why not also find support from a psychologist.
I have no problems saying that over the years, I have been to several counselors to discuss the emotional strains. They have given me the tools and understand to help me in dealing with various problems.
