It’s hard, because it’s such a delicate balance. I often compare it to the red flush and heat of embarrassment – an individual has no control over that – the brain just makes it happen. Or butterflies in the stomach when you’re nervous. Chronic pain/symptoms are the same. It all happens behind the scenes in the brain. I also like that these examples relate a physical symptom to an emotion/feeling.
