Amusing TED Talk Explains Pain For Teenagers

Sometimes a medical person will try and explain to a teenager that pain comes from the brain.

The risk is that the teenager walks away sadly deciding, “They think it’s all in my head”.

The teenager might also decide that they are not believed.

I’ve seen this sad story play out a couple of times.

I wish I’d had this TED talk video on hand at the time.

It’s so helpful and amusing.  I recommend you check it out.
