    What should one do when is stuck, and obsessed with pain, and thus in a constant fear?

    Why is so difficult to shift your attention, or contemplate things in live, in these crisis situations? I know that one should force to shif his attention, but how? How can one prevent to fall into these vicious cicles in the future?

    Should one take anxiety pill in this SOS situations?

    Thanks

    I am trying :(

    I'm affraid of pills, because I know you can get dependant on them...

    Why does a thought or an idea that seemed stucked, creates so much anxiety, and fear? Does this happens also with positive thoughts?

    The other day I couldn't sleep due to pain. I reread parts of the book I had, about mind body. Dr. SArno books, etc, but nothing seemed to help, until I pick up a different book, and than I slept...

    Does an obsessive person, obsessed with fear and pain, or fear from having pain, have to move to a more heathy obsession, so that he can be free from pain? Is obsession, always a unhealthy?

    Thanks

    Thanks, actually looking at the sky, and the trees makes me feel very good :). I was just trying hard to avoid relapses, and this is making me not recovering from my last one... I guess I'm trying too hard, again... I fear not having my mind occupied with positive things :(

    There's another recent post that is useful on this subject that refers to the content of Dr Claire Weekes book

    In summary,
    Try not to fight the pain
    Rather, relax and let it sweep through your body

    I'll come back with the link

    Keep persisting with it friend

    I get the fulfilment thing
    Sarno and others I've come across have mentioned the whole getting more positive fulfilling things in your life to counteract the negatives

    Sarno says it can sometimes be as simple as that. Seeing how you appreciate the sky and trees is a small reference to that so attempt to find more, both small and large

    I've got a full list of 'things I love to do' from a daily/weekly basis to 1-2 times a year. While all or not at all possible, I'm doing more of them and it is comforting

    be well
