As promised in the previous post in this series, this post will help us more fully understand how the pain alarm system works within the nervous system - or how danger signals arise before they make it to the brain, and how the brain makes it's determinations about what they mean. Since we've been looking at pain for awhile now, I thought it might be fun to learn about this through story and with a little humor ;) Hope you enjoy!
In future posts, we'll explore using practices of meditation and observation to help ourselves navigate pain situations.
Until then, breathe deeply, practice often, and be well.
