    I try to keep a list of resources to share in my talks with vets (and others in another group I'm active with). Gentle talk is a good way to get an opening for sharing more information and encourage sufferers to seek the other help they might need (I always hope).

      a big help.

      And you know sometimes people get sick of being poked and prodded, especially if the poking and prodding isn't productive.

      Medical personnel want to help, but sometimes forget that everyone needs a break. Being sick for that long --it's a job, and if you have a job, at some point you need a vacation.

      It might not be sound medical advice, but it seems to be more about emotional needs rather than the physical.
