I have CRPS/RSD in my hands (swelling, hypersensitivity, spasms in fingers, ligaments and tendons). In a way, it is "easy" to get on with your life defying pain - how else would I go about my everyday business, like cooking, showering, flossing, typing, driving etc. I gave my hands some hard work today and by noon I was in pain. I thought what I call "A Sarno thought", pain subsided but anxiety and a wave of depression came instead. I thought it was good that I was feeling sad, confused, fearful. Listening to Jon Kabat Zinn really calmed me down and let me ignore the pain. But now swelling and spasms reached the level that is hard to ignore. I am hopeful that there will be a better day ahead, but doubts are trying to invade my brain...... I am fighting back. Will I be OK?
