thanks for having Dr. Greg Sadler on. i follow him in other ways, and now am appreciating the interaction with a person who understands so much about chronic Pain ; Topics were touched upon in more helpful (to me) ways. Even though i have some extensive background in the use of stoic thought , (and cognitive therapy) somethings were fresh sounding in this context. So, thanks to you both.
