“Our drug-filled society maintains that most physically and psychologically painful conditions should be medicated away. Television commercials support the use of painkilling remedies for headaches, backaches, and every other symptom imaginable. Undeniably, chronic pain is a serious handicap to living a full life, and it makes maintaining a positive attitude enormously difficult. Yet emotional and psychological pain can also be a signal to pay attention.
It can be a teacher, whether it originates in our emotions or in our physical bodies. It directs our attention to the physical or emotional area that is begging for repair. Drugging pain prematurely or too much can be a mistake, because it can mislead us into thinking that we are healing when we are not. Instead of immediately medicating ourselves in every instance, we should examine why we have pain or a pattern of physical aches and pains.”
Caroline Myss, in “Why People Don’t Heal And How They Can”
