Chronic pain is a physical, psychological and social issue,
and the current biomedical approach falls short in addressing the intricate psychological components.
Simply put, we cannot separate the mind and the body when manageing chronic pain.
Years of research is showing us that pain and it's overprotective properties
keeps the brain in a state of fear, sensing danger where there is safety.

Wise Words From One Of Our Community Members
For many years mindfulness was suggested many times. It just felt like my pain was being dismissed and what does this word mean anyway. It felt like what I call voodoo medicine, right up there with other so called miracles. I did not have any interest in even giving it a chance since I felt like they were telling me my pain was in my head.
I slugged through the first few guided meditations and learned that deep breathing is not instinctive and needs to be learned. I found several that felt right and guess what - I noticed I fell asleep very quickly and stayed asleep and I could find a calm space amid a lot of personal stress. I have not had much luck yet with it helping my pain except for the one on Deana's page but there is a huge difference in my sleep and anxiety. I am now addicted. I never go to bed without doing a meditation. I have learned it is not voodoo and it does not mean my pain is in my head. It is a calming force without the pharmaceuticals. It is something I can control. I do think it is a really dumb name - mindfulness and for me it does not describe it at all. My minutes of calm, my brake pedal, my own space that I have full control of, my relaxing, brief vacation in my mind. If you are like me - very resistant, adamantly stubborn and insulted or just do not see the logic of how it could help you, make a 2 week commitment. It is important to find the voices that soothe you and the imagery that is meaningful for you.
