Try not to think about how long it has been since you felt your normal self or when you were able to do your usual activities without discomfort.
Using words that suggest that you have not succeeded in better managing or dealing with your condition, could increase your stress level, and make it even more challenging to make changes.
By changing the way you describe and talk about pain and other you may notice that you are not always experiencing the same feeling. You may need to learn to respond to each of those feelings in a unique way.
And the way we dialogue with ourselves as well as with the people around us may have to change as well.
