Its remarkable what one can achieve "just" by learning to use one's mind and the mind-body interface. People can learn to voluntarily relax, to lower blood pressure and pulse rate, and so on. Learning to "just" live with aches and pains is an excellent method of controlling the pain. And fantasies of "what could have been" are a recipe for regret and discomfort, as the past cannot be changed - it was whatever it was. What we can change is the future, and the attitude we choose to hold about the past.
