    not too brave

    When I was a student I needed a check-up of my denture.  It was done by an assistant of a professor at one of the university hospitals.  She pumped one injection after the other under a tooth.  My chin and mouth were as numb as a steak, but the nerve wouldn't...

    Living With Rsd

    When I think of a pain free world, nothing comes to mind. I fell in 2007, breaking my wrist in 2 places. The pain was bad, but nothing like what I experienced the last time they took off the cast. I had 5 in 5 weeks. After seeing a neurologist I was diagnosed with RSD.  I...

    A Wild Animal Is Chewing On Me

    It wakes me, usually well before dawn, and is with me, in one way or another, throughout my whole pill-punctuated day. Most often I don’t feel at all hungry, but I force myself to eat something, as I can’t take my pain-killers on an empty stomach (“Pain...

    My Dentist Lied To Me

    I was born with an under-developed jaw. It has always been small and under developed. It is not at all noticeable unless I tell people and they look closer. However, this has caused me physical and emotional stress. And I feel like it could have been prevented had my dentist told...

    it reminds you that you are really alive.

    Pain, to me, is waking up alone,

    I know the internal pain of losing someone you

    love. My dad died when I was 12. I was at school when it happened, a teacher told me. I ran to one of the most father-like teacher there, and cried until there were no more tears, just an empty space in my stomach that couldn't be filled. Thank you Mr Arthur.

    Its everywhere. They create it.

    To profit. Even by locking us up. Or removing freedoms. Greed and power cause the pain. As does jealousy. Its eternal. No pain today is new. The mind and body have hurt forever. We could cure it But that would rob the wealthy.

    Mental and Physical

    Some form of pain visits often.  I prefer to attempt to handle one version at a time.  Sometimes one leads to the other.  It can be a challenge juggling both.  Then again, isn't that the purpose for participating in meditation and prayer?

    Pain Defines Pleasure

    As in most things, there is a dichotomy here.  Pain and pleasure are really just two sides of the same coin; sensation.  One draws you in, the other pushes you away.  Pain and pleasure cannot exist on their own, and without experiencing the one, it is impossible to...
