“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it.”

All of us may have to put up with pain from time to time. At times pain can be daunting. Especially if it is associated with chronic conditions.

However, it is in such situations that an optimistic attitude is invaluable. This will help our body to fight back. A sound understanding of the condition and what are the likely causes will do us a lot of good. You see, anxiety will disrupt our sleep. But, deep sleep is required to support our immune system and to enable our body to accelerate the healing.

So learn to gain control over your pain experience. And try reducing your anxiety towards it by demystifying your situation. So that it will be less frightening and more bearable. At WordPress, I have read of many painful experiences. Many managed their pain very well and is recovering by leaps and bounds.

The success stories I read, inspired me to encourage those I know to sought the appropriate medical treatment to overcome their pain. Some succeeded. Some refused to take the bull by the horns. Some chickened out and some gave justifications as to why they should not proceed to be medically treated after some treatments.

You see, With The Grace Of God, who knows ……………….

Stay healthy, God Bless and have another great weekend !!!

    “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it. what you say here is so right. i never thought of it like that, but it is mainly in reaction. thanks

    My pasto years ago would say that 20% of the people do 80% of the work in the church. Now to me that tells me allot, we have far to many sitting down and doing nothing..That has to change…

  4. What’s that cliché??

    If life gives you lemons make lemonade!

    Yes, it is overused, but oh so wise 😉

    Thank you for Sharing!

    God Love You ♥

  5. I was born with turned legs and had to be in plaster the first year of my life, from toes to waist. It was very painful and I had no other way to express my pain but to cry, so I cried. But gradually I learned that by rolling to my sides, right and left, continuously, over and over again, there was less pain, so I did just that. Later I learned that children often resort to this match against pain.
    When I became older I tested this with different conditions and found that it is enough to roll the head to take away the pain, at least for me, I found out that I cannot think if I roll my head like that and then goes the pain.
    I have also tried to move the pain from my feet to my hands by focusing on the pain and moving it in my mind, a little crazy, but sometimes it works. And then there are doctors to help with the pain.

    But you are right, Michael, if something is wrong we can do nothing else but focus on getting well and it helps to be calm, relaxed and good sleep does work wonders. And

    But I do believe the most important thing is not to be afraid, it takes to much energy and it is better to use it to recover.

    One of my greatest lessons in pain management was Lamaze. When I was pregnant with my first child, I took a class where we learned those classic techniques for pain management. Over the past 22 years I have kept that lesson close at heart, and whenever I am in pain, physical or emotional, I try not to run away from it by tensing and stressing, but by meeting it head on. I recognize it for what it is, focus on the source and find ways to relax. Once you can start to relax, the pain starts to decrease.

    Pain is our body’s way of telling us something is wrong. And, as with any other problem, once you accept that something is wrong, you can find a way to fix it. It may not be as easy as taking a few deep breaths, but once you have perspective and focus the pain will ease.

  9. Excellent post and excellent perspective, Michael – thanks for sharing!

    I’ve watched my future daughter-in-law suffer with fibermialgia for years now. You never hear her openly complain, but sometimes she will simply sit and ‘tell’ you what it is like. I’ve always been grateful to have been blessed with good health. My prayers go out to those who are not so fortunate.

    • Michael says:

      Thamk You Orples for leaving behind such an inspiring insight. I trust your daughter-in-law is doing fine lately. You are very kind. Cheers to good health !!!

  11. Sometimes pain is in the emotional, psychological realm. Trauma is an incredible challenge. Facing it head on and sitting with the past, develops a courage and resilience that running away can never give you. With support and proper treatment, pain will lift and the courage restores the self! Great post, Michael.

  12. One thing I’ve learned to do is to send loving thoughts and energies to whatever part of me is in pain….as if it were a child that needed comforting. Doing that rather than feeling anxiety and fear about it, has helped me to not dwell on the pain.

    • Michael says:

      That is a great way to manage pain and I am sure it works well in you. Your mind have to be at a state where you can focus on easing the pain. Happy Living !!!
