Hi, I am on day 34 and just finished what I think is a really great article that I posted in the title and that you can access by going to day 34. From the start I have totally believed in the cause of my pain being emotional and that I need to stop thinking about it in ways that I have done all of my life. This article makes it clear to me that if I give the pain power I am really giving power to my underlying default emotion of fear and that is what I need to remember as I try to break the pain cycle. What I do with articles or whatever really resonate for me is I copy and paste them and save them in a file to go back and read them over again. This is one that I did that with because it really helped me understand the pain-emotion connection. Just an aside of how I am dealing with taking the power away from my pain. The term my hip is "barking" or my knee is "barking"is something we all have heard I am sure. When I first started the program I looked for ways to take away the power of the pain. When it would flare up I would start verbalizing the the word "bark" to imitate the pain barking. And it would go something like this, "Bark, bark, bark, bark . . ." that I would say to myself as I was walking which is when I would feel the pain mostly. It was a way for me to make fun of my pain to take its power away. After the first couple of times that I did it I noticed that the "Bark, bark, bark, bark . . ." sound that I was making actually sounded more like a chicken clucking than a dog barking which helped minimize the power of the pain in my mind. A chicken clucking is a lot less threatening than a dog barking. Also, being a chicken carries with it the connotation of being afraid rather than something to be afraid of. So I was able to put the label on my pain that it was a chicken, it was the fear itself and not something to be afraid of, and that I no longer had to fear it like I used to fear it like a big bad dog. The emotions behind the pain is really just a banty legged ole cluck-cluck and one day if I keep doing what I am doing it will just get the cluck out of here. And just for the record I am getting better . . . slowly, but it is worth the wait!
