Pain management is about you and developing strategies with support to be able to cope more effectively. It will be hard and tears will be shed as we grasp with improving methods of surviving. We use a strategy until we develop a better one and should not feel guilty about choosing the wrong options, we may have done this through lack of experience or development of our ongoing condition.

The practitioners are here to help and they know how difficult this change will be, it can take considerable time to develop the correct plan for you and although I have a baseline strategy I am continually adapting and looking for more effective and beneficial changes.

A side effect of this process may be increased pain and frustration, as we search and implement change, the majority will find some benefit and improving methods, it is not a panacea for eradication and for the more part is attempting to help you manage your pain better, for those for whom it has and is working it is a revelation and through our input the whole process will be improved, be open minded and accepting of change and grasp all the opportunities that are within your gift.

Accepting change is accepting ourselves.

What have you changed today.

Take care John
