Chronic Pain Video

What’s the worst type of pain?

I think the worst type of pain is when you resist it. Um You know, I think we can get through just about anything when we kind of accept it and only worry about what’s within our control. So whether that’s physical emotional, um you know, even if we get our heart broken, we can choose to make meaning of it. We can choose to see the positive, we can choose to see things differently. And even with physical pain, I have a friend who’s, who was in a very serious car accident and struggles with chronic pain. And even she, you know, she’s now a pain coach because she tries to teach people how to work through the pain and not resist the pain. So the worst type of pain is the one that you resist.
