Acceptance of my spinal condition,the pain,the symptoms,the limitations,plays a major role in my metal health and pain level. Yesterday acceptanace crashed and burned. It happens every so often,triggered by this or that. I either become depressed or angry. Usually one followed by the other. After a day of this I return to acceptance,washed out by the roller coaster of emotions. I feel somewhat embarressed and apologetic afterward. The negitive thinking that precedes the catastrophic thinking I usually recognize and stop. I have the tools and resouce to combat this but as I mentioned It too often fails. Any ideas or suggestions? Michael :??
