I have been someone who has a "head " and a body" and never the twain will meet. By this when I work or go somewhere I shut down my interaction with pain and the body to get me through the day . I started doing this I realize as a child ;when I was afraid which was a lot of when I got smacked which was a lot I simply shut down the feedback loop. in essence my brain has been effecting my body for a long time but my body as not had such a smooth journey. Even when I am in great stress, shoulders hunched, breathing shallow , pain I have to shut my eyes and check in to understand that this is not normal and I should not spend my days on a high alert status. Indeed I have lived this way head down waiting for the worst for such a long time I " Don't sense" it as anything but normal. I got an anxiety disorder quiet sever and this made me STOP and try to sort out my mind body situation.Now I know things like work-money problems , family antagonisims are top of the pain accelerator system in my body. So now I am working on creating a mind body two way information super high way and its a slow process but I have started and I will succeed.
