Talking about it
Just thought I'd share something...
About two weeks ago my back started playing up again. It has been pretty good for six months now, and I was a bit annoyed that it had started aching again. But there it was, being extraordinarily painful in the middle of the night and preventing me from getting sleep.
Now, as it happens, it started playing up when I was staying with my parents, and I thought it was the bed. They have a small flat and I sleep on the sofa bed - rather than my normal tempur mattress.
So I thought it would all sort itself out when I got home and back to my normal bed.
Unfortunately it didn't. Worse, the pain seemed to linger into mid-morning.
Anyway, yesterday I remembered Healing Back Pain by Dr John Sarno and his theory that a lot of back pain is actually supressed emotions.
And there were a few things that were bugging me, so during a long drive yesterday with my wife, I talked through them with my wife. (I won't go into them here - they're personal.)
I didn't solve anything, we didn't fix anything. I just talked about them.
And last night, I had the best night's sleep in weeks. No back pain!
