Somatic Symptoms redux
On with weepingwillow
We did not really have a chance to thoroughly discuss it so we are going to touch on it again. Somatic symptoms are very common for those dealing with trauma, yet we are often embarrassed about them and avoid asking for help. We can talk about different types of somatic symptoms, and general ways to deal with them. If many are interested and have a lot of stuff to say we may break it down into several topics to use. Hope to see you there!:)
