A good example is my mother. She has been suffering with pain in her feet on and off for years. When I was in Berlin last October she had great difficulties walking because of severe pain in one foot and was limping more or less all the time. One day we were running late to go to an appointment and we had to run to catch a bus. She was laughing her head off when I mentioned to her afterwards, that she ran like "a young one" and we indeed managed to get on the bus. During the journey I asked her if her foot was not hurting and she looked at me and said "actually........ no!" amazing, she had actually forgotten about it LOL afterwards she was limping again. How can that be?!
What do we make of the pain once we "know" it is there? It must be there until we forget because we got something better to do (= running to catch a bus). But how real is the pain in the first place?? We don't believe it can just go away until it does..... Once diagnosed we might think it can not be cured. Like my Mum, her doctor is convinced she needs to live with this chronic pain until the end of her days and it will only get worse because the condition is degenerative... Guess what, I had her here in Spain in March and she had a treatment which helped to loosen up the ligaments and muscles in her foot a bit and within an hour she was walking pain-free!! How can that be, if the X-ray actually shows the bones being so badly damaged from arthritis, that walking pain-free should be impossible?! She thought it was a miracle!!
