Model for physical pain

Hi coaches —

I’m 35 years old and a former athlete. For several years, I’ve been battling a hip injury (with accompanying pain) that has sidelined me from all physical activity, including walking for more than 10 minutes. I have been to several physical therapists, chiropractor, doctors, and all have said that the hip dysfunction is likely fixable. Yet, no one has been able to fix it. I have done everything I’ve been instructed to do to help the recovery, but nothing has worked. I constantly have negative thoughts and emotions about this situation and feel depressed often. Although I plan to take massive action until this dysfunction is fixed, I’m suffering so much now. I’ve been running models, but I’m having a hard time with the R line.

Unintentional Model:

C: hip dysfunction
T: it’s not getting better
F: hopelessness
A: thinking negative thoughts, spinning, self-pity, questioning why I’m even trying, stop making fitness goals, waste mental energy
R: stay in a negative mindset – lower quality of life in general

Intentional Model:

C: hip dysfunction
T: this is fixable
F: motivated
A: stick to positive habits, positive thoughts, bigger goals, conserve mental energy
R: higher quality of life?

Any advice in dealing with physical pain is greatly appreciated also! Thank you so much.
