It's a neat little study but this headline is ridiculous.Vice wrote the same thing.
In my experience (personal and professional) depression exacerbates pain and doesn't numb it (unfortunately)Pain can cause depression which numbs the pain, you take something which alleviates the depression and you feel the pain.
That's my take on that.
As a chronic pain patient, I have been through all the courses and I can tell you for some it works, the whole accepting the pain and what have you but for me it does not and wouldn’t ever. I will always needs opioids for pain relief and thats just that.just read the article - of course 20ug is going to change the way the brain perceives things cos it's a (just) perceivable dose of lsd, doh!
agree that the morphine replacement thing is a nonsense, but it's definitely true that learning to have a different relationship to pain can be hugely beneficial and can lead to pain relief...and also true that stuff like psychedelics and meditation can help to facilitate that new relationshp
I'm not assuming I'm aware of how your pain effects you, but am interested in why you have taken my post personallyAs a chronic pain patient, I have been through all the courses and I can tell you for some it works, the whole accepting the pain and what have you but for me it does not and wouldn’t ever.

I don’t know if you’ve ever dislocated your hip but I do that at least 3 time’s a day.....
I didn’t take your post personally, I was just commenting that yes what you talk of may work for some but it won’t for others and I am one of those others.I'm not assuming I'm aware of how your pain effects you, but am interested in why you have taken my post personally
Your speak with great authority about the future - other methods will not work "ever" and you will "always" need opiates etc - got next weeks lottery numbers too?
I realise your statements are based on extreme circumstance, a highly-educated guess if you like However, the invitation is to keep the possibility of change/healing open and not help to close it further with self-debilitating self-talk and rigid ideas about what we 'know' will be the situation in future. Anything can, does, and will happen!
I'm a chronic pain patient too if that's important, I also take opiates for relief sometimes
Pain's a fucking bitch eh...an interesting one though
