PAIN IS NOT ALWAYS IN THE MIND
I understand and can appreciate some of what the doctor says about pain. I do agree that the patient must take responsibility and face factors that might be contributing to their pain. However, I have a herniated cervical disc and have been in terrible pain for months, if something is pinching on a nerve - it will cause pain. You cannot 'think' it away. I believe the book is good for 'some' people that do not have serious conditions, but these techniques suggest that if you don't get cured then something is wrong with the person (patient)but the truth is that we do not have control over every physical condition that happens to us and it is not always our (the patient's) fault if we do not get better. Pain can easily cause people to become depressed and we have to keep hoping and believing that we will get better. For 45 years, I never had any pain like I am now experiencing. I know what it is like to live in pain every day and I don't want people to feel worse after reading this book because their pain does not diminish. It is not their fault.
