When medical science does not explain our physical symptoms we are caused months, weeks or years of heartache – not knowing where to turn for help. Many hard-working people end up asking themselves “is this all in my mind?” Physical symptoms are manifestly within the body but the mind also inhabits the body. So when we become over-worked, distressed, or frightened this impacts on our body, just as much as it impacts on the mind. Sometimes it appears to affect only the body, and the mind feels fine.
Therapy can treat functional symptoms. I want to say to healthcare services “Don’t push people away; you can treat them.” CP
The way I view things has totally changed – I’m now totally relaxed and everything is easier. Philip C.
