The course was good because I learned so many things…. like how to calm down yourself... your mind.
Before I used to do all the work together and then get tired and in pain.
Now I do some work and then rest myself and then do more.
Now I know the pain will go. Whenever it comes, I relax and I say:
“OK.. I have pain … it will go when it’s time to go… “
So I relax and look after the pain.
Before I used to try to push it away.
Now I am kinder to my pain.
When I do that I don't feel it that much and slowly it goes.
I love meeting new people.
I feel like they understand me because they have a similar problem.
Meeting new people, I feel like I’m not the only one with pain….some have little … some have more… but we all have pain… in mind or physical pain… but we all have pain.
Now I know some people share [..their experience in the group] and some people don’t but I share now because it might help other people. Before I used to think “What are people going to think of me?”. Now I think I might help others.
Now I say to my kids… if you have pain, come and tell me and I try to help them.. to relax them.
I do meditation with the kids. I tell them …”don’t rush to remove your pain… just relax!”
I feel like it would be good to open more courses like this for young children.
I don’t want young kids to go through what we went through… being in pain and not talking about it… and not knowing what to do. The doctor just gives you medicine .. but it has so many side effects.
This is the first time in my life I have finished an entire course. Usually I drop out in the first or second session. I’m planning to come every month. That’s how much I liked it. I stayed because it really helped me.
