“I had intense pain from a muscle spasm on my entire left back that usually happens in winter. I had an appointment for the Clock and Stairs training with my Team Mentor that I did not want to cancel. As we completed the training, she asked if I knew what triggered that pain. I told her it was the cold. However, upon digging a little deeper, it turned out that it was triggered when I felt helpless, or was in situations that I had no control over. We went down the entire trail to when I was 4 1/2 years old. Most recently it was triggered by the book I had read – Being Mortal by Atul Gawande, where this surgeon talks about geriatric care and limited options available. Well, my TM asked me to put my feelings of helplessness under the hand and lo and behold that pain was gone and has not come back. This was 11 days ago!!!!!”.
