    Injuries

    I tore a pectoral muscle and 2 other muscles around my rotator cuff- and possibly the rotator cuff itself last month. In a powerlifting competition, attempting to bench 405 lbs, I tore all that... It hurt like a mutha!

    High-functioning Autism, My senses are too acute, and my social skills aren't up to par with my age group. My pain is both physical and emotional. I'm dead inside and constantly feeling abused by my surroundings on the outside. To make it worse it seems as though there are no...

    Pain

    I have felt so much pain and loss - too much for one life I think.  But through my pain I have learnt to savour joy more....instead of being one of those people that goes through life content with what they have I am now a person that demands the best - because that's...

    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...

    Yes I Do

    I know a lot about pain. Most of the time I am in pain. Right now I am burning up in the hell of pain. Turns out there is nothing more hurtful than knowing that you were nothing but an object of pleasure to someone you really cared about. It is pain in its most acute form...

    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?
