    Are you having success at recognizing the emotions connected to your pain?

    Kinda. So far I am able to correlate pain to stressful/rage inducing events or just shitty life periods, but my first thought is still connecting the pain to physical sources.

    If you have, how do these emotions make you feel?

    Honestly, at this point I just want to be done with the pain. So, if deep down I'm some asshole, so be it. I just want to be done with this.

    If not, what do you think is preventing you from doing this?

    Idk. I think I'm just scared of injury and looking stupid. I can imagine myself for example tearing my tendon and then feeling stupid when I tell my doctor: "But I thought it was all in my head".
    This might be my legalist personality trait showing. I guess, at the deepest level, I'm scared of being embarassed. I've had enough of that in my life
