Format: Paperback
I am writing this review after only completing half of this book, and will update when finished. This book has opened my eyes to a new type of pain medication - meditation. Unlike the rest of the books I have read broaching the subject of pain management (more specifically for me multiple sclerosis/fibromyalgia management), this one has not lost my attention yet, I have thoroughly enjoyed learning something new to try in my never ending cycle which for me personally entails stress from illnesses/life -> Pain from fibromyalgia due to stress -> MS exacerbated by fibromyalgia pain and stress -> pain meds -> more pain meds because the last stopped working, and so on. For the first time in a long time I have new hope of changing things, and truly believe stress is a huge factor to pain, based if nothing else, on pure experience.

I will update my review upon finishing this book, but please take a look if you are in a situation like I am, mindfulness is a solid technique for relief, or if you want mindfulness from another perspective, try reading about dialectical behavioral therapy, it is the same techniques but used for psychologically error-ed thinking (distortions in perception).

I recently decided to buy this book and finally, after everything I've read about the benefits of mindfulness for pain management, commit to making this part of my life. I blog about my journey reading this book at my blog painfullyawareblog.wordpress.com. I find the book makes you take an honest re-appraisal of your approach to pain management, and life, but gives you a lot of support and encouragement along the way. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
In this brief book Jackie Gardner-Nix presents us with the idea that we relate to pain as though it is alien to us, and something to be conquered, never realizing that pain is a sign of imbalance in our lives.

Short meditation and mindfulness exercises help us to hone in on the language our bodies are speaking to us through pain, and how to respond constructively in order to bring ourselves back into balance.

RECOMMENDED.

I suffer from chronic pelvic pain and I found this book very helpful. It is very easy to read and understand, and I especially liked the step by step techniques
and the explanation of mindfulness. I am just a beginner in this area of meditation and am seeing some results.

I highly recommend this book for anyone battling chronic pain. It not only helps you manage it; but also crystalises some answers to the "why" question. Mindfulness helps you manage life and pain in a way that allows you to find contentment. This book helped me understand why my pain is chronic when others heal in a shorter time. For me it provided practical applications for exisiting knowledge of mindfulness; but it would still be an easy read for someone new to the concept. Jenny

I suffer with chronic pain. Just reading a portion of this book so far has helped me see that the way I think about pain makes it more difficult to bear. I associate pain with terror (PSTD). No pill can fix that. If I can change my thinking using the techniques oulined, I will do so much better.

The biggest lesson I got from reading this book is this:

Don't give up.

There is a solution to chronic pain. You can stop blaming/questioning yourself, and you can do something about it.

What a welcome relief to read a "self-help" book that actually makes a difference.

Buy it, read it and start changing your life for the better.

Don't find it as useful as other of the many choices of literature on mindfulness applications to living with chronic pain, but it does have many useful pieces of information and advice.
