I have constant pain all over one side of my body that swaps sides. When someone says something that upsets me or makes me feel uncomfortable, instantly I get a sharp increase in pain which can end up as a migraine very quickly. I have made a start on trying to actually feel the emotions in my body when pain increases and not suppress it. However when I'm with people and they have said or done something that upsets me and causes me pain (which is something I fear) how do I deal with it at that exact time. How do I feel the emotion without lashing out or breaking down into tears (which I don't want to do) Do I leave? Go somewhere I can be alone? Or is that just running away? Normally I automatically suppress these feelings and instantly I have a severe increase in pain. How do I go about stopping this automatic response?
