And Heal thyself
I have been in a search for yet another self help book to shoore up the flagging spirits. I find I simply can't engage with a book that has the word. OVERCOMING in the title.
They are numerous and what's more depressing the NHS recommends them. You can get them on prescription apparently. I can't cope with the implied expectation. It's too much. Most of us can't climb Everest surely. Why expect me to.
Overcoming pain. To quote but two.
To throw the word Overcome at me signals that I should be victorious. Really? Now I have done the training on the Pain Management Course. Completed the phsysios mobilisation regime.Have tired my upmost to out manoeuvre and pre empt the body beautiful agenda and move to that zen like state of acceptance that is recommended. Not to mention NLP acupunture, Chinese cupping and hypnotherapy. And a few that have been forgotten. Ive been on manoeuvres for years. I am need of R and R. The body refuses to sign the chit.
But no one mentioned. That I could Overcome. Surely to overcome I must first fight a battle and win. Anyone who suggests that I haven't put up a good fight with my particular battle should proceed with caution. I may not be victorious but I have a well trained rear guard in the form of a supperhyper alert operating system.
Now I find that I obviously haven't tried hard enough or I would have overcome all and have the perfect well behaved mind body and whippet.
How utterly depressing.
Try try and try again to overcome. I simply haven't got the energy.
I spent it all getting cross over a word. My own fault of course.
