Ignore the pain?

    Please advise, should I just ignore the pain and keep walking and moving about, or is okay to rest up for a day or two until it subsides?

    Hi, Paddipaws. Love your name. Dr. Sarno, Steve Ozanich, Dr. Brady and others suggest to ignore the pain and go about
    your life as if you had no pain. Walking, moving around, driving the car, gardening, shopping, cleaning the house will not
    harm your back or anything else. Staying active, moderate exercise are all good for your body and spirit.

    No need to rest for a day or two because the pain won't go away that way.

    I think you'd benefit from listening in this Tuesday, Nov. 12, to the TMSWiki telephone call-in about chapter 14 of
    Steve's book, The Great Pain Deception, about "What You Need to Understand to Heal." Here's my summary of the chapter:


    If you can't join the call-in Tuesday night, Becca posts a video about it a day or two later.

    Good luck and keep active.

    Yes, ignore. If the pain is there to distract you from dealing with some emotions, then I say distract yourself on YOUR terms and ignore. Live the life you want to live.
