Hypnotherapy helped me control the pain
My story really starts with the diagnosis of mesothelioma. To be brief, mesothelioma is a form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. The particular form that affected me was a thickening of the pleural membrane surrounding my left lung. The main symptoms of this particular form of mesothelioma are shortness of breath and pain. Currently, there is no cure and the only treatments available are palliative care.
Chemo is offered as a means to control pain, but I found the side effects of chemo to be far worse than the disease itself. Besides the pain, I started experiencing very severe bouts of depression and anxiety, which prompted me to look at hypnotherapy as a possible solution.
My hypnotherapist, Darren, not only gave me a solution to managing depression and anxiety but also gave me an extraordinarily powerful means of controlling the pain I was experiencing on a daily basis. Thank you, Darren.
