Hi guys !
I just want to share a little experiment of mine.
I have been operated last year, after trying to avoid it during 2 years. I had no choice anymore and decided to do it in order to resolve definitely the problem.
After the operation, I suddenly realised that I now had two metal screws in my shoulder. Since this very moment, my soul and my body tried to reject them : I had nightmares, I became anxious when I thought about these " two unatural things in my body" and my whole skin around my shoulder turned red, irritated. It was very violent and I had no solution except wait and see.
So my wife suggested me one night to give them names and talk with them. I thought about it and decided to name them with something I liked very much, to overlay my feelings about those two concepts. "Chocolate" and "Chocolate" (never too much about it) became my new hosts. I thanked them for helping me, forgave them about beeing in a place they didn't choose, etc... In the end the process was very helpful ! I felt better and finally didn't pay much attention to them, while I physically healed at the same time. I can even smile now when someone asks me how is my shoulder and I answer "Chocolate helps me a lot, you know."
So, if someone here has the same problem or will be operated, I suggest him or her to think about it : it's very easy to try and could prevent you from having a very bad time postoperative.
