Healing from Chronic Myofascial Pain—Support for Chronic Pain Sufferers


Treatments: Self-treatments and personal action

Described below is one of the many approaches I've tried or considered trying for healing my chronic myofascial pain:

Take meaningful action

BOTTOM LINE: Could be very important; still to be determined for me.

I've read about people who say once they took action and did something meaningful they finally got better (e.g., as described in Miss America by Day: Lessons Learned from Ultimate Betrayals and Unconditional Love by Marilyn Van Derbur, even though her difficulties were more psychological than physical). Maybe preparing this website and writing my story is my attempt to take action. Maybe my words will help someone who is suffering. As I mentioned under Therapeutic writing, once I published this website, I experienced some pain reduction.

The long-term effectiveness of taking meaningful action is still to be determined for me. However, I strongly believe that this, along with many of the other things I've done and continue to do, is contributing to my current, not-as-bad-as-they-used-to-be pain levels.
