How to ease pain with the help of disassociation 

People who are in pain will often say something like, "If this doesn't stop soon, I'm afraid that I'll go mad!" This is, of course, understandable. Pain's a terrible thing to live with and the various uncertainties which it can bring up - how long will this go on or will I ever be able to work again? - can introduce into the treatment process complications which are related to but separate from the pain itself. Fortunately, mindfulness is a very helpful tool for dealing with all of these emotional aspects of discomfort.
