Hi guys So I've had this herniated disc, which I until two weeks ago, assumed were the cause of my pain; I've realized that its not! The same with my ruptured supraspinatus tendon.. Anyway, I'm following the structural education program on the website, and this is my 8th day.. I've noticed that my pain went down from a solid 8 to a 3-4, in just one week. I must admit, that its kinda hard to think psychological whenever I'am having the pain (it comes back approximately twice at day I think, but then goes away..)..This problem prolonges the pain, and keeps it constant for more that it should be.. I've started to talk to my self. I keep pinching a fleshy point between my thumb and pointing finger, while saying that its all good, and that I am healthy, and that the pain is my brains way to protect me from repressed emotions.. It works! It actually does! Today when I had the pain, I talked to my brain (how weird is that?!), and actually reffered to it as "Doctor"; dont know why to be honest..I told it to slow down, and to supply my back with oxygen. After one hour of conversation with it, the pain stopped.. My question is now: How can I prevent the pain from ever coming again? I keep getting these panic attacks, whenever the pain arrives, and I suppose that the panic is even worse than the pain itself.. Do you guys have any advice on what to do?? Thanks alot!!
