Taking Our Minds Off The Pain
Taking Our Minds Off The Pain

Dr. Laura:

My nine year old daughter suffers from a painful neuropathy that is the result of a fractured foot.  She is improving daily and works hard to keep a smile on her face.  We have to travel a long distance once a week for three hours of therapy, and she requests that we listen to your show, because it takes her mind off of the pain!  We listen and try to guess your advice.

I made the decision to be a stay-at-home mom, and unbeknownst to you, you have encouraged me and supported my decision when my family has ridiculed me.  I am even more grateful for that choice now, because if I were not a stay-at-home mom, we probably would have had a longer delay in getting my daughter's diagnosis and treatment.  There's also no way I could travel so far so often to get her the best care if I were working.  She's a fighter and is determined to get past this.  Her prognosis is good with another 6-9 months of therapy.    Thank you - you are a great comfort to us both.
