Negative thought patterns are like Gremlins, they seem to multiply when I'm feeling down. A pain flare usually dampens my mood quite a bit, and it's always when I'm weakest that those furry little fiends invite all their friends over and have a party. Although I really need to complain and revel in pity parties once in a while, I really don't want to get stuck with the Gremlins.
Learning from past mistakes, I've realized I need to look out for certain furry faces and practice turning negative thought patterns around, for example by releasing previously anchored positive states.
