I’ve personally found writing six word memoirs on sixwordmemoirs.com and arts and crafts such as designing book marks, adult coloring pages, and making dream catchers today and yesterday to be a true distraction to intense pain. Hard to believe it really works and it does. More power to distraction as a useful coping tool.
Keep sharing ideas. I too have made my own t-shirts and get a real kick out of them. One says: “Pain has some nerve irritating me.” I personally find this hilarious and it is one of my favorite shirts.
