What Distracts You From the Pain?
Aside from medications, finding a position of relative comfort helps me, but it doesn't last long before I have to move.
To distract me from psycho pain, being in church, reading, playing the piano, knitting, sleeping do the trick.

@jimhd It is interesting how the mind can only focus intensely on one thing. I know this to be true. Using this skill is even difficult. Idle hands can lead to an idle mind and for some this can be unhealthy. Dismal and raining here today. A perfect day to work on another watercolor. Grin…Now the hardest part is picking up the paintbrush again. Coming here is a positive part of my day and also can be a distraction. There are times I have difficulty getting my ducks in a row. 🙂
