I don’t want to be a downer ... but here I am again, posting the same message again. No amount of ignoring, Claire Weekes, Alan Gordon, therapy, distraction, meditation, relaxation, medication, exercise, reassurance, moving on with life, self-talk, etc has helped me get out of this many-year rut of pain. In fact, the rut keeps getting deeper. I don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel anymore. I’ve heard it all before. Whatever’s causing the pain - mind, body, or Santa Clause I don’t really care -, it just won’t budge, and I can’t seem to coexist with it. Does anybody have any alternative suggestions? Something out of left field? I’ll try anything ... I’m dying here.
