A thought

To begin, some background. 
I manage my pain condition with a combination of medications, exercises, relaxation techniques, prayer and pacing my life style.  The doctors have tried to convince me that I can do away with two of the medications that I am taking if I increase the use of relaxation techniques "self-talk". 

Some poeple think this is a load of rubbish.  But then, some people think that my pain is a load of rubbish so whatever. 

My thought...

There is something to be said for positive self-talk.  I have tried it and found it to be useful on some occasions.  But...

It is very difficult to have a dialogue with oneself to quell the fears and pain when the fearful voices telling me about pain are louder and more articulate.
