      Tell me how to distract self from pain

      I'm a major glutton for punishment. I ate a double BK Stacker last night and a new Arbies Roast Beef sandwich this afternoon.
      Now I'm having a full-fledge gallbladder attack. The last one lasted over 4 hours.
      I have sweat beading on my upper lip because the pain is making me hot.

      I will never eat another of those sandwiches ever again.
      I'm against having my gallbladder removed. I'd rather grow a brain and start avoiding triggers.

      I've already taken a hot bath. I've tried sleeping, but that's just not happening right now unless I drug myself. I've tried stretching and massaging the area. They were each great for a couple minutes, but nothing's lasting.
      I've also taken a combo of 1 tylenol, 1 ibuprofen

      Tell me how you guys deal with pain (other than the obvious of avoiding it to begin with lol).

      I recognize that its unpleasantness is an illusion and that it will end.

      Thanks Philosopher

      50 mg Seroquel knocked me out, but only for a couple of hours.
      The pain is worse.
      When I broke my wrist, my pain on a scale from 1-10 (with 10 bing worse) was 4-6. Now I'd place it at 7-9.
      If it doesn't ease up soon, I'm going to break down and go to the ER.

      If the pain is that bad and lengthy then it probably is ER worthy...

      Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong.

      I find that a nice tasty KFC "double-down" works great as a distraction from pain.

      I open up Firefox and vent on the internet and eventually get sidetracked with music, foruming, etc. Oh, and painkillers.

      hahhaaa, KFC. Now that WOULD kill me!

      Thanks for the suggestions and the kick in the butt.
      It was a rough night but I slept through the storm.

      I didn't want to go to the ER because my gallbladder was just angry at me. I had no fever or any other symptoms that indicated danger.
      But I do need to make an appointment to have it looked at.
