If you had heart disease, cancer, or another physical malady, would you let it run its course, or would you treat it? Physical illnesses can cause you to be less happy, less focused on the task at hand, and less productive. They can lead to increased absence from work or poor job performance. We seek treatment to feel better and to be happier and more productive, so we can live our dreams. Why is it then that when illness is related to emotional, mental, or relationship factors that cause similar outcomes, we are more likely to hide and deny it, hoping it just goes away?" Does this make sense?
