Yesterday I started seeing a therapist to help me deal with the depression, isolation and feelings of total loss of control. She understood immediately all the things I was so desperately trying to tell friends and family. You see, not only do I have PBC, I also have fibromyalgia ....which is going untreated until I see my liver specialist next month. I am also trying to deal with the fact that my mom passed away three years ago from cirrhosis. But my therapist got it ...she knew that I thought about all this 24/8....that it never leaves my head. She got that the pain from the fibromyalgia was unbearable and she was even baffled,like I am, as to why they don't at least try to make the pain bearable so I can function. All I want to say is thank God for Betsy Weissman ....I think together we can get me to a fairly good place with time and just caring and recognizing I am not some crazy hypochondriac!
