Sample text

One of my patients is a newly married young woman who was hit by a car while jogging. Since her accident she has suffered from chronic pain and fatigue. Although she was out of work for months, she has now returned to her job as a buyer for a large department store chain. She finds the daily work taxing and the travel impossible. By the time she gets home from the office she’s ready for bed. She has been struggling with depression resulting from the loss of her marriage as she knew it. When she married she had thought this time in her life would be filled with happy outings with her husband as well as a lot of shared intimacy.

This is particularly true for people with limited education and few work alternatives. The difficulties associated with trying to figure out how to get compensated might add to the injured person’s feelings of powerlessness. Some people become frustrated with what they perceive to be a system that cares more about the paperwork than about helping people who are legitimately hurt. They may hire a lawyer in part to “make the system pay” for their suffering. For a small percentage of people who are injured, the condition may be so physically devastating and the compensation needs so great that litigation is the only way to resolve the claim.

It’s wise to do a medication review with your doctor to optimize pain relief without causing undue fatigue or symptoms of anxiety and depression. Some people find that hot packs or cold packs used at home both before and af- 44 intimacy and sexual activity ter intimate encounters help relieve any discomfort. Finally, there are medications and other treatments for physically based sexual problems (Viagra being just one of them). Your doctor should be able to discuss the various options with you or refer you to someone who has expertise in this area.
