I am recovering from a serious accident (several of them, actually_) and my practice os going fairly well until it comes to PAIN. I have several periods every day when I would be suicidal, if I didn't know that it would eventually pass if I could only hold on. During that time I can't even breathe straight. I'm trying to just focus on my breath, and repeat "Do you see this as your PRACTICE?" but it's not working well at all.

If anybody else has problems with pain, I'd appreciate some tips. And refs to books or thread, sites that might help?

I know that I have to accept it, and just be with it........BUT I AM SERIOUSLY NOT LIKING THIS!
