Panic from pain

My psychologist helped

You do go through this crazy thing where you start thinking well, maybe the doctors are right. Maybe this pain isn't real. Maybe somehow I'm causing this pain. One of the things that I chose to do was to have a good psychologist who knew me better than the physicians did. Her support that this is not an imaginary thing helped me do what I had to do.
