Talking to the pain person

My GP suggested a questionaire to help me access a pain psychologist. He said it would be someone to talk to about my myositis, someone who understands pain and how to cope. This is a very specialised field now as there are so many people living in chronic pain.
It is good that there is someone to talk to as even though I come from a large family no one wants to talk about it except probably my mother and I don't like to burden her with all of this. If she asks, and she does, I tell her a little but not too much.

Some books I have found useful:

Managing pain before it manages you. M.A.Caudill, The Gilford Press.

The Pain Survival Guide: How to Reclaim Your Life. D.C. Turk  & W. Frits, American Psychological Association.
