The question to ponder asked if I'm recognizing the emotions connected to my pain. Yes and no. I'm recognizing a LOT of emotions in the journaling. I've also, on a few occasions, been able to recognize emotions "in the moment" throughout the day (mostly feeling frustrated and angry with my kids). But I haven't been expressly connecting these emotions to the pain. That is, I haven't been able to say, "I have a lot of pain right now. How am I feeling? Oh, I'm angry about this-or-that," and then notice a change in my pain. Should I be explicitly trying to figure out the particular emotion behind the pain in a particular point in time, or is it enough to work on the journaling and recognizing emotions as they come up and being kinder to myself?
