Default Re: Hope it helps others

Brilliant. I got the same type of talk from both my psychiatrist and another specialist I saw for spasticity. I expressed pretty much the same thing you did- Feeling like I wasn't dealing with it very well. Both said essentially "Your response is appropriate." Seriously, you'd have to be crazy if you didn't feel overwhelmed/sad/angry/grieving.

I am glad you have someone who can give you such basic and supportive statements. When the self talk becomes destructive, it's good to remind yourself you are, indeed, coping. And coping well.
