    So far I’ve talked to my girlfriend and my mother and father about it. I actually just linked my dad to it because he has pain issues and has a lot of the anxiety and perfectionist traits I have. So far everyone has been receptive to what I’ve talked about, but my mom has also had more luck with holistic approaches to her pain issues too (and can link her years of migraines to stress and a miserable marriage to my father). My girlfriend I don’t know how she feels about it since it’s not as “official” but she supports what I do and is glad it’s helping me. She also knows I prefer more holistic treatments for most things (please don’t think I’m some anti science nut - I’m vaxxed and pro vax and go to the doctor when I’m sick, I just prefer to try natural remedies when possible).

    I’m glad I have supportive people with it because I think it would be a lot harder with naysayers, personally.

    Yes!! In this you are fortunate. You have a loving support system (which many here do not).
