I'll Appreciate It
Not in any masochistic way. I don't get off on pain. I like that pain reminds me that I'm still alive. Pain can be a sign of something wrong, but it's also proof that your body parts still exist. My nerves aren't dead yet. They still work. Maybe that sounds stupid, but I got to see a relative suffer through neuropathy as it climbed up from his hands into his arms. Where the point of pain stopped, the nerves were dead. They'll eventually have to amputate. That's scary.
