Re: I've battled my pain body for a decade, I need help!

Are you married now? Family? Kids? I'm married. No kids, but that was a choice. If you saw me, you wouldn't know I'd been in an automobile accident. Like I said, I look fine. But you know how it is when you get a new car and someone hits it? They can do bodywork, but it's never quite the same (thin...

Re: I've battled my pain body for a decade, I need help!

What is even more upsetting is that, if a scar came from a car accident, it would happen and be over. When I was 19 I went out drinking with my girlfriends. Right before I left, the bartender told me how beautiful I was. On the way home I fell asleep at the wheel and hit a tree. I smashed my face a...

Re: I've battled my pain body for a decade, I need help!

Hey Joe, I could write a message re: its your self worth and that doesn't come from whether or not you have bad skin (very external) but I'll tell a little personal experience. When I was about 40 I decided to upgrade my face a bit and get some botox for the frown lines (you know, fabulous at 40 ap...

Re: I've battled my pain body for a decade, I need help!

Have you tried being intimate with the pain and the suffering? I mean have you tried fully feeling it? With no resistance and no movement away from it? Just you and the pain. You talk about "battling" your pain body. Can you stop putting up a fight? Just let the pain be. By resisting the pain, mayb...

Re: I've battled my pain body for a decade, I need help!

Hi meetjoeblack, welcome to the boards! I'm afraid I cannot really offer a word of help, but I'd like to say that reading your post seemed to have tapped into my own pain body. An immense sadness has come around me while reading your story, I was tearing up for a while. I had cystic acne for a whil...

Re: I've battled my pain body for a decade, I need help!

I know it's hard, but please be patient and don't judge yourself because of this. Stressing over it will only contribute additional hardship to your body. Yes, the body has a certain appearance, but what You are has nothing to do with the body. I've seeked out models, brad pitt, Dane cook, Seal, Ka...

Re: I've battled my pain body for a decade, I need help!

Thanks for the responses guys. Today was a rough one. I feel so internally damaged. My family could not afford to take me to a dermatologist. I thought before 18, I would get past this, and well, its gone on long past my teens, into my early 20s. I thought acne was the worst thing. To get past cysti...

I've battled my pain body for a decade, I need help!

Hey guys, I am going into depression and I've turned to Tolle. I am trying to just accept things, life, and how things come. This I am having so much more trouble with. I started out as a happy go lucky, positive, out going young kid now a young man. At 13, I hit puberty, and my life has never been ...
