Physical pain has my mind clouded. I keep trying and end up feeling guilty because I failed again. The doctor wants me back in PT. I canceled. The terror of going back was too much. I left in tears having failed in getting help again. I was too filled with fear of seeing that PT therapist again. I have a very arthritic neck that cannot tolerate the stress the therapist was putting on my neck and the ortho doc wanted me to go back!! Are these therapists not informed about the condition of the patient prior to treating the patient?? I am not brave enough to be hurt like that again!! The 1st one was helping and I was optimistic. It will take me sometime to get my pain under tolerable control again. Forget asking for help!!

@parus– I don't understand this either. It sounds counterproductive. By the way you are not a failure. Please understand this! Not wanting to endure physical pain is smart, protecting. It's the opposite of failure and guilt.
