Ok, your right here, right now...
coping skills are improving
your accepting the fact your not
the "old you"
the "old and worn out you"
the old and worn out and tired of being me..you..."
Its time to move past the initial shock, anger and denial of what has happened.
if not ready, stop reading here and go on back to feeling all sorry and worthless, and un worthy, and undeserving, and left behind, and unwilling to go on, move on, get on...
ok, now that your all good and depressed, get off your broken spiney booty and do something about the situation.
Its your body, not your mind thats ahh..less abled.
the Mind, Body and Spirit are all interconnected, the triple helix of existence.
the body, tells the mind owwwwww! enough,
and soon you start to believe the totality of your existence is tied to the pain input..
and then you get down..
in the dumps, in the emotional gutter, the depression, the black, the bruised you...
THAT IS NOT WHO YOU ARE.
you are more than the sum total of all your pain in your parts.
before this you had"a life"
you could do, and did!
and now you cant..
what is stopping you from "Becoming" again?
your mind and spirit are still intact
and hungry to achieve.
learning to step away from the all encompassing pain input, the getting control of it, is the first step..
I have pain
I have this pain
I have been in pain
I will be in pain.
I acknowlege that I am in pain
I will be in pain
and there will be pain in the future.
I study my pain
i seek to understand this pain, and that pain
I look for answers about the cause, nature and remedy of the pain.
I look to truly understand the cause, to then understand the nature and truth about the sense of pain.
is it psychological?
is it physical?
is it the cumulative acts of the nerves, firing, unceasingly,
is it the cumulative effects of pain, unending that start to were you down
determine the true nature first
you are not your pain
your mind is stronger and fleeter than you think.
what is it to you?
you may not be strong now
but you will be
understanding, wisdom and knowledge open doors
what and who will you be next year?
