Today on the SEP the education part was about fear. I have read over and over in the books and on the websites that it's important to start doing activities we have been scared to do. It seems that by doing so we kind of prove to the brain that we know the pain isn't structural and isn't doing us any harm. I've actually never stopped doing any activities at all. My pain is all in my neck and left side of my head so even when I believed this to be structural, there was nothing I felt I was unable to do. In the evenings I would go to bed early and cry myself to sleep because I just didn't want to live this way, doing everything while in pain, for the rest of my life, but now I've realized that my future isn't so dismal, I've quit the crying and defeatist attitude, but I can't re-start activities I've been too scared to do because there are none. Ooooooh, actually, I've just realized that is not 100% true, I've often wondered if going on a trampoline would make me feel worse - but since I haven't jumped on a trampoline since childhood, it wasn't something I was actively avoiding. Maybe I should go find myself a trampoline to try it out!
