I know this is way over the time frame, but how I describe it is... white noise that is always playing in the background.
thanks for bringing this forward.
I remember when I started this, i was genuinely struggling to put words behind the disease and all the patient responses have helped me so much in understanding this disease.
Empathy is really important in healing and without such information as was given to me through this thread, i would not have been able to share my patients' fears, concerns, worries and pain.
so often, by sharing some of these responses, i was able to connect to a patient in a meaningful way.
This thread went so far beyond ccsvi....it enabled me to be the kind of doctor my father was.
Thank you all and if you want to share, now is a good time to write and vent your issues
