Tool One

Accept that you have persistent pain and then begin to move on

Tool One

Acceptance is the first and the most important tool in your pain self management toolkit.

Acceptance is not about giving up but recognising that you need to take more control with regards to how you can better self manage your pain.

Acceptance is also a bit like opening a door - a door that will open to allow you in to lots of self managing opportunities. The key that you need to open this door is not as large as you think. All you have to do is to be willing to use it and try and do things differently.
