Remember how psychoanalysis works? It was first developed by Freud as a “talking cure,” where (in the simplest terms) patients talked about all of their deepest fears and taboos, and by airing them, their neuroses disappeared. In other words, nature wants to fix those things that are out in the open. Left to fester, unaired, untreated, most problems get worse.
And so, to borrow a page from all the great analysts, it’s time to Air Your Major Body Pain Complaints! That’s right, by merely mentioning the one thing that hurts on your body right here on the Web for all to see, it will gradually stop hurting.
My left knee is killing me. It’s a “torn meniscus” or maybe “nothing all that drastic” but every time I chase the basketball down, I tweak it and I want to frickin’ KILL myself from the pain. I use a brace and all, but it only partially helps.
Also, my lower back on the left side, one particular muscle has been in chronic pain for six years. I’m really sick of it, and though Stopain Spray® works unbelievably well, I’m tired of smelling vaguely of menthol.
So those are two for me. I’ve aired my complaints. Let the healing begin!
