Well, major trauma pains, help people, dissassociate.
Picture it, like a large ship. When a ship takes on water, due
to a breach in the hull. It has smaller compartments, the control room can shut down, to preserve the rest of the ship, and keep it from being compromised.
Such is the way of pain. This is going to sound weird. But, even in tatooing, people want to escape that pain, right? Well, you, mentally, have to go away with it.Weird as it seems, either blank it out and concentrate on music, talking, comedy, other things, to trick the mind from feeling or concentrating on it.
There is another method, I use for pain. It's turn it into a symphony of something positive. Yah, weird. But, what other choices do you have? I try to play music in my mind, to the pain, to, again, trick my mind.
But, homestly, the person that stated ibuprofen and such, that would be the best option, I think. The rest is for multiple trauma individuals.
Good luck and blessings to you all.
