Yeah, I think counseling is a GREAT idea for most of us, specifically, and for most adults, in general. I meet with a social worker and with a PhD (seperately) on a regular basis. Not just for the fibro, but for health issues is general. Several tools or stategies they've given have helped resolve tremendous issues, if not completely over come them, and it's WONDERFUL to be able to, honestly and completely dump all of the feeling that go along with this and many other illnesses. This can all be so frightening and overwhelming sometimes! It is good to have a place and person to hand all the misery to that we experience daily to a person that won't have an emotional investment in us (such as family and friends).
