Pain

Pain is

          . . .  emotional gnawing of the heart

                        . . .   loss

. . .    dreams razed

            . . . coming to terms with a broken body

                                                                       . . . to be human

    1. Thanks. Pain is like background noise for me – it ebbs and flows in volume. Until I attended a pain clinic I was unaware how many people suffer from chronic pain. I’ve learned and experienced that ongoing physical pain has an emotional impact, and that emotional pain can aggravate physical pain.

  1. “the emotional gnawing of the heart.” Wow, you nailed it. That’s such a good description. It fits so well.

    And yeah, that whole “coming to terms with a broken body”…I’m still not sure I can do that. It’s hard.
