For those of you who have read the Painful Yarns stories – we got an email recently from Tim Beames who sent us a conversation he’d had with one of his patients:

“This big guy with CLBP is standing in front of me with tears rolling down his cheeks whilst I’m blathering on about attention and pain etc and a light suddenly gets switched on.  He looks a me with a big smile on his face and tells me he’s read a book on pain and this guy gets bitten by a snake but doesn’t realise.  He recovers but then he gets scratched on the leg by a stick and passes away!!!

Fantastic, didn’t have the heart to correct him as he was so pleased.”

Well if it works……
