Question Hi, I have a question about the most recent episode, about focusing on positive sensations. Is the pain supposed to change in some way due to focusing on positive sensations, and if it doesn't, am I doing this wrong? When I tried somatic tracking, like Emily, my pain didn't move/increase/decrease or change in any way. I think I am pretty fixated on it, but I didn't think I was doing anything wrong, I just thought I needed more practice. So I tried somatic tracking every day for the past two weeks, but...nothing changed. The pain doesn't change, it's just always there. So then I tried focusing on positive sensations, but the same thing happened--neither somatic tracking nor focusing on positive sensations seems to work for my pain. What am I doing wrong? I'm definitely frustrated with the pain, and unsure of why these techniques seem to work for other people but not for me. I know trying to "problem solve" and worry about the pain will just keep it going, but I haven’t seen any progress so far. Any thoughts?
