My sister took my dad for an injection, since my mom had just died, and he killed himself a few days later.

My sister was like WTF?

Couldn't he have killed himself first?

First couple PT sessions under my belt. Literally. After an x-ray and some diagnostic tests they're treating it as as a pelvic floor issue and not a back issue, which matches my original thought when it popped up last year: https://forum.surfer.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=2860353

Autoprax, if you're looking for a PT that will finger your starfish to hit the trigger points, I can recommend that you (a) go to mine and (b) avoid the procedure altogether if anything else brings you relief. It sucks.

Yeah, I think so. I surfed yesterday for the first time since early June without much pain. We'll see how today feels.

Pain is an experience that reflects the perception of threat.

Pain is one of our many survival mechanisms, but it does not reliably reflect the status of our tissues. As with so many things, context is important. Stimuli that may not be painful in some contexts might be quite unpleasant in other situations where we feel threatened. For example, a friend punching you in the arm while you are joking around is not nearly as painful as that same punch from someone who is angry or being aggressive towards you. The same physical insult results in a different experience based on many biological, psychological, and social contextual factors.

Our thoughts and expectations are important in managing pain and injury. The more threatened we feel and the more convinced we are that something is “wrong” that needs to be “fixed” the more debilitating painful experiences can be. While there are many variables we cannot control, our learned responses to pain and injury are things we can alter. Reminding ourselves that most tissue injuries heal within days to weeks and doing things to facilitate that process can be helpful. Catastrophizing–amplifying the negative aspects of our experiences and engaging in worst-case thinking–can exacerbate painful experiences. Pain is not just in your head. Nor is it just in your tissues. The interactions that result in the emergence of pain are enormously complex. Working to approach our pain with positivity and a confidence that the situation can improve is important. We can experience substantial discomfort in the absence of tissue pathology, and this understanding can be useful as we adapt and self-manage our injuries.
