PAIN AND HUMAN SKILLS
Pain tests all of our human skills. It tests our ability to be human. It makes it harder to deal with others in our life no matter how much patience we or others may have. For the most part, those closest to us take the brunt of many of our behaviors, so it is important for everyone to learn the essential human skills for the protection of marriages and families; for those who stay in our lives, and from whom we hope to receive the love and nurturing needed for maintainence of and return to good health.
My goal is to encourage everyone to learn these things and hopefully those important relationships will be strengthened. Nearly one third of all Americans are affected by someone in pain, so it becomes a very important goal for the preservation of families and society, besides the individual and his/her intrinsic worth as a human being. How we all approach this problem reflects on ourselves and our respect for the dignity of life. Our goals should be to "live simply" and develop "high thinking" with respect for relationships and family bonds.
This group of pages will deal with basic human skills that everyone should master and practice, not just pain patients. These topics cover skills that are a must for the pain patient to understand and incorporate into their own behaviors and reactions. The skills to be discussed are found in others whom we may admire or feel that they have everything going for them. For pain patients, these skills and behaviors are needed to protect health and allow for the recovery of inner resources. It will lead to changes in inner emotions and thought processes that generate positive healthy feelings that are associated with good health.
TO NOT HAVE DESTRUCTIVE EMOTIONS AND BEHAVIORS THAT GENERATE POOR HEALTH AND PAIN.
