Hi everyone - I was just wondering if anyone has seen a psychologist to help with this illness. I've been off work for a month now and waiting to back to see my GP later to extend my sicknote. My husband (who is wonderful by they way) thinks it may help to see a psychologist to try and help with the "mental" side of fibro - the memory loss, lack of concentration etc. The rationale for this is hubby thinks my physical symptoms are being addressed (albeit they don't always work), but the other "head" problems are not. I can see his point, although I'm not sure that it would help, I know full well that this is a an illness which needs to be managed not cured, but is this course of action really the way to go? Any thoughts would be very much appreciated. Love to you all and gentle warm hugs.
