I’ve been thinking about pain lately. Not just physical but mental. Sometimes can’t have one without the other. If you are in such physical pain, it effects you mentally. If you are in mental pain sometimes it affects you physically. People with both types of pain usually take medication for it.
There are medical conditions that cause people to be in pain, where the only relief is medication. That’s just not physical conditions that included mental conditions.
Some people will never understand pain.
There are some people out there who when they lift a finger it causes a ripple of unbearable pain.
There are people who are in mental anguish. They suffer mentally and internally.
No matter what type of pain they are in, at some point they want it to stop. Even if it means slitting their wrists, taking medication, or even taking a handful of medication.
It’s like a hot water heater about to blow and all you do is turn the valve to release some of the steam so that it won’t go overload.
Just a little slit. Just another pill. I just want it to stop just for a little while.
Yes this is a bit dark because unfortunately people see those who are in pain as weak because they don’t understand pain. They think they are faking or making it up. They think that it’s all in their head.
So in turn they get picked on and bullied or even yet treated as if they are not a person.
It’s not a weakness. It’s out of their control. Still they get up everyday. They try to push through the pain. They get used to it. Some people are so good at ignoring the pain that it’s like it’s nothing to them and someone else would be unable to move.
I know we all have a tolerance, but when someone hurts by moving and they are putting on clothes through that pain, it’s not a weakness. It’s freaking strong that they are trying to endure even though it hurts them.
Not sure why I’m thinking about it, but that’s what I was thinking about.
