I’ve been realizing more and more how much boredom plays into the rest of my issues, back pain included. It’s still difficult to find things to occupy my time that are engaging without taking too much thinking or too much movement or too little movement.
Today was difficult, a reasonably bothersome pain day. I’ve been sitting more lately, which may be why. I had a conversation with a friend just recently which I got halfway through before realizing that up to that point I don’t think I’d been thinking about pain at all, which was pretty awesome. So all in all, some very high and very low points today.
