I naturally have an obsessive personality (once I latch onto something I am "all in" - sports, work, hobbies, anything!!!), so once I started having chronic pain 4 years ago (I have pain everyday / all day in my upper, mid, and lower back with some in my arms except when sleeping) I find myself thinking about the pain all the time. I will wake up thinking "I wonder how much pain I will have today" or "When will my pain kick in today". I am on day 20 of the SEProgram and am finding that this is my toughest challenge yet! How do I stop thinking about the pain? In a weird way, I think I am obsessed with the pain!!!
