I worry all the time about whether the pain will end.
It’s terrible and I think it’s never going to get any better.
It’s awful and I feel that it overwhelms me.
I feel I can’t stand it anymore.
I become afraid that the pain will get worse.
I keep thinking of other painful events.
I anxiously want the pain to go away.
I can’t seem to keep it out of my mind.
I keep thinking about how much it hurts.
I keep thinking about how badly I want the pain to stop.
There’s nothing I can do to reduce the intensity of the pain.
I wonder whether something serious may happen.
