Thoughts for Reflection

  1. Am I able to ask for help with my pain, or does fear of appearing weak or fear of addiction prevent me from getting the relief I need?
  2. Do I feel that I deserve to suffer or that God has abandoned me in my suffering? If so, will I ask to speak to a chaplain or clergy person about these feelings?
  3. In the midst of my pain, have I considered memorizing a Scripture passage and repeating it many times as a prayer and as a way to take my mind off my pain?
  4. Is part of my physical pain caused by fear, guilt or anger? If so, am I willing to talk to a chaplain, or someone I trust about these feelings?
