No, not at all!: This is one big misunderstanding. Chemotherapy is a medicine which can be taken by mouth or given as IV injection, just like other medicines. When administered carefully by an oncologist, it should not hurt.

Please see your doc for a hormone checkup and then maybe use the book feeling good by david burns. Bipolar is overused today. Peace! ...Read more

Selective mutism, i've done hypnotherapy/ psychotherapy and no results. I'd like an opinion on shamanic psychotherapy, it's my last resort.
Last resort???: I'm concerned how you came to the conclusion that "shamanic therapy" is a "last resort." it's not a generally accepted treatment, and not supported by research.
