What is pain?
Can you see it?
How does it come?
Why doesn't it go?
Is there such a thing as "painless"?
Who invented pain?
Where did it come from?
When did it start?
Did I do something wrong?

If I wish long enough, will it go away?

Right now I am in so much pain that I'm having a hard time staying awake.
Not the kind of "hard to stay awake" when you're sleep deprived.
It's the kind of "hard to stay awake" because the pain is so encompassing.

I can't even tell if the rest of my body hurts because the pain is so great.

Pain is not a big enough word for what I am physically experiencing and feeling right now.



  1. gentle (hugs)


  2. Ever-so-gentle hugs, Bee! I, too, deal with chronic pain but it's definitely not as severe as yours is. Even so, I've at times found myself wondering strange and inane things like "How do I know this is pain? What IS pain? How do we know it really is pain?"

    You most definitely did NOT do anything wrong!


  3. I am so sorry :( Pain is so overwhelming and debilitating. I sympathize with you, Bee. Take care of yourself.

  4. It's been awhile since you wrote this post, Bee. Just popping in to give you a gentle hug and lots of bloggy love. (((((((Bee)))))))
