Do you talk about your pain or complain about it? What do you do if other people ask you about your pain?
Pain talk is a maladaptive pain behavior – worsening symptoms by adding more attention to the pain.
We can't move forward if we're constantly reminding ourselves of the pain or if we 're surrounded by negativity.
I choose not to talk about my chronic pain to myself or with others, including my doctors (unless there is a new symptom that need acute treatment).
