First up from How to Live with Pain – Making positive psychological changes – including acceptance. Just don’t put a timeframe on it, is my opinion. Acceptance doesn’t mean you have to like your pain, it just means you let it be there without judging it.
You just HAVE to go to Dr Rob’s Musings of a Distractible Mind. He always makes me laugh and think all at the same time! Beware of grammatical elitism – those who would say that by ‘wantonly leav[ing] out spaces betweenwords and endanger the very fabric of the spacetime continuum by doingso’. You decide whether healthcare should be two words or one… OK?
Psychology of pain – for hours of reading pleasure – Through this blog I found this link to ‘Overlapping Conditions’ – things like chronic fatigue syndrome, endometriosis, fibromyalgia, interstitial cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome, temporomandibular joint all overlap to a great extent. Mohammed Yunus writes about these and describes them as central sensitisation disorder – worth a look.
Go on, take a look at Science-based Medicine blog – if anyone has EVER thought I was opinionated, think again – this is opinionated, and GREAT! Don’t read it if you’re into energy healing or mythology of autism and immunisation, or any of the other myriad health fraud or woo disinformation that’s around.
Don’t panic, if you’re not mentioned here – it doesn’t mean I don’t love ya, just need more time and energy!!
