Chronic pain and Autoimmune disease can affect mood, sleep, memory, concentration, and relationships. Psychotherapy may provide new coping techniques and improve quality of life for those with chronic illness.
“Chronic pain disorders can be defined as conditions for which pain is the primary symptom of concern. These conditions are difficult to treat; even the strongest pain relief medications for acute pain often have little beneficial effect in chronic pain. Autoimmune disease happens when the body’s natural defense system causes the body to mistakenly attack normal cells.”
