One of my good friend’s daughter hurt her back at work about six weeks ago. It just kept getting worse, so she has applied for disability, but the insurance company has been dragging their feet.
Today her pain was so bad she called her mother in tears. Of course I said she should come over and once she got here I started talking to her about her back.
It is important to tread lightly at first. Not everyone is willing to look at the emotional component of their pain.
