Thriving with pain is about taking back your life from the cycle of pain. For some it means not experience chronic pain anymore and for others it means gaining quality of life and a measure of peace of mind in the midst of the pain.
Pain is difficult subject for western medicine since it is subjective on the patients part. Theories of physiology psychological and spiritual dimensions of pain are many; from hypersensitive nerves to childhood trauma, from Substance P to suffering from your thoughts. To thrive with pain you must find your own physical, emotional, mental and spiritual answers. I have found my own and continue to find more. My answers may not be yours but I believe these steps are universally needed to get to thrive!
What have you found to be true for you on your pain path?
