If I understand correctly pain is a danger signal from the brain. What is the purpose of anxiety? Also danger? I feel anxiety every day, for many years now. Most of the time for no particular reason. I'm just afraid something bad is going to happen. Anything really, my mind always comes up with something. I try to convince myself everything is ok, I use affirmations like I am safe... but it doesn't work. Some kind of unexpected distraction sometimes works. And someting makes it worse. When I feel pain in the usual places I don't get scared anymore. But lately my pain is getting really clever by showing up in new places all the time, which is making me afraid/anxious. I am afraid of the pain and the pain makes me even more afraid/anxious. I would really appreciate an answer/advice. Thank you!
