Phew!! We got through negativity week in only three days, time to snap out of it!! Bye bye Muppet hosts! It's Saturday morning and I am shaking all the gremlins out of my head.
In order to shake off negative thought patterns I don't know any better way than Cognitive behavioural Therapy. Through talking with a therapist or counselor who is trained in CBT you can learn to change any negative thought patterns that are holding you back or reinforcing your negative pain behavior. It usually doesn't take more than a few sessions to get really good effect, and if you suffer from chronic pain and your situation is stable it can be a life saver. Talk to your doctor or check with a local patient organization to find a good counselor in your area.
